Is owning multiple paintball guns dumb or a waste of money? I just bought a dm13 and love it, but i miss my etek 4, the trigger was setup exactly how i wanted it and everyone complimented me on it. So is buying an ego11 or even older one or an etek 4 a waste of money since i already own a nice gun?

I don't think it's a waste to own multiple makers. I have 3. It's like owning multiple cars (if you're lucky enought to be able to): you have the sedan for daily driving, a pickup truck or SUV for moving shit and doing work, and the sports car in the garage with a cover for cruising on the weekends. You have a variety for whatever flavor you want that day.

My friends think it is a waste but I still own 6 pump guns and an azodin kaos and 3/4s of a alias. When we go to a scenario I take a turn with every gun and usually loan the kaos out to a new player with no gun. Like I say do watcha wanna do if you want 10 guns get 10 guns you like do not worry what we think.

Let's see, I own two Shockers, an Etha, a T8.1, a Delta68 pistol, some Splatmasters, and a couple of old blowback guns. There's no way I can use all of them in a day, but most of them have a permanent place in my gearbag.

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.

Not in the slightest. Of course there is a limit everything and where the line goes is depening on how big you budget is. Having a backupmarker is nice in case your main shooter goes down or you can lend it to a friend, and i suppose a pump or magfed could be nice to have in case you want to save on paint. For example if you had something like 2 pods left and there is one or two games left. With a electro that can be a stretch if you are triggerhappy. But with a pump, you won't be able to throw to much paint down range.

Good to know guys. I don't feel like purchasing another one is such a waste now. We have a couple woodsball tourneys and what not that I'll need a more efficient gun for, plus I have a couple friends who play that I wouldn't mind loaning my guns to do they could pay for paint and what not. I'll probably pick up another one sometime in the near future.

I own 12 and I use 2 every weekend. I keep the ones I cherish and trade the rest. IMO it's to have a mix of what you like. So no, it's a good idea to have multiple guns, aslong as you can afford them

It's not a waste at all. I currently own an 09 Impulse, Vanguard Creed, Invert Mini, Ion XE, Tiberius T9.1, Armotech Zeus G2, and an old Viewloader blowback. Owning multiple guns is far from silly, people do it all the time with cars, real guns, and paintball guns along with counteless other hobbies. Different guns sit different purposes, and allow you to play in multiple playing styles.

I don't think so.


I usually like to have 2-3 set ups (at least masks, tanks, guns and hoppers and packs) when I am going places, so I always have back ups for everything. If your gun goes down, due to some freak accident like your board snapped in half or something, it's good to have something there to keep ya in the game!

Owning multiple guns is not a waste at all. I do feel bad when I have a marker that doesn't get any use so I try to keep it at 6 and divide up the times to play with them based on a few factors. I've got a SC pump and am electro semi for open play days, an OC pump and mech semi for scenarios, a loaner marker, and a marker that I take out each day at the field just because it's so much fun to play with.

Having at least 2 guns is a good idea because if your primary does down you have a backup to keep playing with.

It's your hobby; do whatever's fun. Personally, I enjoy building and collecting markers as well as playing, and when I do play, I love variety.

yeah when i broke 20 i decided i should cut back. i think im below 15 now. but that depends on if you count bag-o-guns as guns or not.
The ultimate truth in paintball is that the interaction between the gun and the player is far and away the largest factor in accuracy, consistency, and reliability.

I've owned well over a dozen high ends.

One at a time....I'm a minimalist lol, I currently own one Vanguard Demon and I'm contemplating getting another or a used Creed as a backup but I know for a FACT my wife will think it's a waste lol. Maybe I'll just break into the parts kit I'm getting from Vanguard and have a backup engine and board, if something goes down, swap it out, back to it!

I have 8 myself. Three are older guns I bought new back when I i was young to the sport and will never sell.

4 come with me to the field all the time. An AGD RT ULE Automag for pretty much all play. A DP E1 for a super tight semi auto speed ball set up. A Tippmann A5 as a loaner or for long balling (flatline or apex). And my Tippmann SL-68II for almost everything, it my go to gun I started in this sport plain pump and still find it the most fun.

My last marker Is a empire Trracer. Had this for a while. Not sure what I wana do with this one. May sell it since I use the SL68 far more than this. Currently it sits on my TV stand as decoration.

I can understand the appeal of being a collector, but financially its a waste.

Most guns I ever had at once was 3, and it drove me nuts trying to decide which one to use that day. So for that reason I'll only ever own 1

I tend to get Toy Story syndrome with my belongings, it's like I feel guilty if I use one more than the other.

Only if you like things that depreciate.

I'm not saying it's a wise investment strategy, but not every marker loses 50% of its value when the next year's model comes out. :)

You're still losing money though, just some guns faster than others

As I said before, I can see the appeal in collecting, but personally I thinks its a waste of money to have more guns than you will use.

When Murphy's law strikes, you'll be glad you had an extra marker or two. Even minor problems like shredding o-rings take up play time, so it's often quicker to just switch to a different gun. You get more playing time that way, and you'll be happier in the long run. Plus, if you want to take a nooby out to play against people with their own equipment, they can have your backup and be a bit more competent.

It isn't losing money if you buy them when they hit their rock bottom in price or get them at stupid low prices that even below their bottom price. That is what we did to get all the guns we have. It is amazing sometimes the prices you can get on things. I don't think we spend over $15/gun for all the spyders we bout to use as loaners when we play. And we have over 30 of those alone.

Any Sheridan KP series, Tippmann SMG 68s, AGD X-Mags, Some rare cockers etc. they are out there, but that being said I don't see paintball guns being an investment.

I have my comparatively small collection causes I like different styles of guns. I also hang on to things my pro/carbine, PGP2, And Classic Mag are guns I have had new since the late 90s. I keep those around for memories sake, mostly they hang on the walls theses days but I do try to use them each at least once a year in game and now and then in the back yard shooting targets.

Then I think 3 markers brought to the field to be just about perfect (Pump, Mech Semi, Electro Semi). My self I bring along one more mech semi for when I want something with a bit more range or something I can run on Co2. It's also one the markers I don't mind lending out.

Cool :tup: guess I just have my mindset in high end electros since they are typically easier to sell.

I still feel it's a waste of money. I love the way this forum reacts to a difference in opinion. It's like I'm not allowed to think gun collecting is a waste of money.

I didn't necessarily mean new, but there are still a fair-sized handful of guns still going for as much as or more than they did new. Loo Ducks, Taso BE90s, Shocktech SFL E-Mags, some Sheridans, some Lapcos, some Matrices, even some 'cockers.

As for used, the list really opens up. I could sell many of the markers in my collection for at least as much as I paid for them. The 'cocker market specifically is really picking up steam in recent years.

You're still losing money though, just some guns faster than others


Not true at all. Some markers don't depreciate, and others manage to appreciate over the years.


Care to list what guns you can buy for MORE than they cost brand new?

Other than the obvious SL91, Shuxe 1of1 guns.


Any Sheridan KP series, Tippmann SMG 68s, AGD X-Mags, Some rare cockers etc.


Cool :tup: guess I just have my mindset in high end electros since they are typically easier to sell.

I still feel it's a waste of money. I love the way this forum reacts to a difference in opinion. It's like I'm not allowed to think gun collecting is a waste of money.


We are right, you are wrong. We are smart, you are dumb. We are good looking and you are ugly. Duh :P

I think a Posted Image would have been more appropriate than a Posted Image at the end of the above post.

I can understand the appeal of being a collector, but financially its a waste.


On an individual basis, markers do lose value. With only a couple exceptions, I could not sell any for more than I paid.

But the collection itself has an intrinsic gestalt, when you put them all together they are worth more than each of them separately.
The sum of the whole is greater than its Parts.

My collection is modest compared to some folks I know...
You have to understand, I've been picking this stuff up for 25 years. Just the pile of magazine subscriptions weighs over
1/4 Ton.
:rolleyes:
