What house hold items can i use to make a temporary hopper just to shoot in the backyard. will have to wait two weeks until my rotor comes since ANSgear sent me the wrong item. Would a water bottle work??

A water bottle would work but the feed port is a bit too small. I literally saw a kid with one when I went paintballing and I lold. He was just sitting there shaking it to go into his hopper, and I was just like bam, 2 seconds with my laundry detergent bottle :P . I would try to get a funnel and stick it over top of the feedneck and just pour paint through the top.

cut the top of the water bottle off just to the point of where the hard plastic ends but it is still narrow and cut off the bottom of the bottle. use tape or a ziptie to attach the narrow top end of the bottle to your feedneck and pour the paint directly in through the big hole in the bottom of the bottle. you can expect 30+ bsp, a quick clean, screwless assembly, and an anti jam that we at aquafina like to call SqueezeTheBottle 2.1. :dodgy:

But really this will work well enough for a week or so to just shoot in your backyard
(a pod with a funnel of sorts is an atlernate but you cant really fill it)

You could always buy a shake and shoot for like $3.50 Posted Image

Just grab a pump hopper from the local shop or whatever, could always use it in the future if you decide you want a pump Posted Image Or just funnel it with your hands out of a pod.

You can get a shake and shoot at local sporting goods stores, or even at some walmarts for $5 or less.

Just an idea, not sure how you would go about doing it, take something with a feed opening and connect a pod to it. Not sure how to explain it. Or easier, Take a big funnel, stick it in your feedneck and load like 50 balls in it.

I can't go to a store mainly because i don't want to and if i wanted i would have to ask my parents to drive me there (I am 14) thus annoying them. So i think i will just use recreationalpb's idea. of using a water bottle and cutting it close to the top so that it can be connected to the feedneck. Any other ideas would be appreciated.

If you had any 10 round tubes you could put those in the feedneck and get a short burst of shots.

Get one of these gum cups:

Then once it's empty, cut a hole in the bottom and cement on a piece of tubing for a feedneck.
Cheap, delicious pocket hopper.

Using a gun that's been hardly maintained and tossed from person to person more than a village whore is hardly a fair way to compare the marker.

Didn't you read?? I need to test fire my new drone. Not worth buying a new hopper just for that. I will be playing once my hopper arrives because ANSgear sent me a invision instead of a rotor with the drone.

You're not going to make anything worth while on your own. You're also probably going to spend the same amount of money on something trying to make a loader, that you could spend on a shake and shoot, and get the same outcome.

its mainly because i don't want ot push my parents temper. I already had to get their permission to buy a new marker. And i will only be using the loader for 10 minutes or less. Definetlely not worth buying for
