Sup TechPB. New here, my name is Israel. I live in Miami, FL. Just got into the sport about 2 months ago and i'm really digging it. Gotta be honest though, i know i wont stick with it for too long since its so expensive and you dont get much out of it as an adult (Not like chicks dig it, at least not when you're 27..). I started with a rental, then got an A5, then went through a couple more guns and gear (all of which i just started posting FS)and now i think i'm set with my current setup, although i am looking to trade my mini for an axe - just because of the ergonomics, I think the mini is a solid gun.

Here is my setup;


*Dye DM10
-Billy wing bolt
-Critical trigger
-Virtue lazer eyeballs
-Virtue OLED board

*Invert Mini
-Virtue board
-Empire relay on/off


My girl's (waiting to find a pink mini so i dont need so many different sets of o-rings)
*Smart parts ION
-Locking feed neck
-SP 360 QEV
-TechT L7 bolt
-Virtue Eyeballs
-Virtue board
-CP Reg
-CP mini drop and on/ff ASA
-Braided ASA/REG line w/ quick disconnect

*Hoppers
-(2) Halo Bs , V35 - rip drive. I have a virtue board, magna case, and magna magnetic conversion kit coming in for one.
-Torq loader for my girl. Prob hook her up with the modded halo once my "New" pinokio get here.

*Masks
-Vforce grill (mine)
-Dye I4 (girl's)

*Air
-(2) 45/4500
-(1) 88/4500 (if i use it then i run it on a remote line)

You don't need a set amount of posts in order to post in the trade shack or anywhere in the b/s/t/.


Welcome to TechPB and that is a nice setup you have there.

Good to know. It was more of a courtesy though, i've been on a bunch of forums for a lonngg time (mainly mustang / local forums) and i just feel its rude to sign up and go straight to the classifieds lol.

Thanks for the welcome!

Aint nobody got time for that :P . Did i break one!? I have a general set of rules in my brain, haha. I did see that to post stuff in the BST here you have to have a piece of paper with your techpb info on it.

Word of advice, stay away from the rant sections and any posts with titles that look out of place. Shenanigans will be soon to follow.

Welcome to TechPB.

Instead of selling your Mini to try and find a pink one for the lady, why not just have your current one re-anodized pink?
You could sell the Ion and use what you make from that to cover most of anodizing cost.

Its not even the markers being expensive thats the issue, you can get some - or all of that money back if buying used. When field admission is $15 each time along with a case of paint being $30. Fair to say every day you spend paint balling is at least $30. If you wanna play tournaments, even more.

That wouldn't be a bad idea if it was a definite keeper, but i'm looking at it from my moneys eyes. If i sell it to buy a pink one, or do an even trade - then there isn't any more money invested - in fact i might get lucky and actually make a few bucks lol.

This is true, but I would be also be concerned about the possibility of getting burned on the deal.
The gun you trade your fully functional Mini for may arrive in the same condition as our friend Kevin's FS8 did.

Although unlikely if you play it safe, my paranoia bids me to express the possibility.

Lmao, Well i've been pretty lucky with my hundreds of internet dealings so far.. But i will say that i soon found out that there are a lot of shady people in this sport and if my clean scamfree record is to be tainted, i'm sure it will be something PB related. I'll def try to be as careful as possible if i end up trying to trade online though!

I've played at action town a handful of times and tried out bigshots in homestead a few weeks ago. I really like bigshots but its too far of a drive to go there often. This sunday im either gonna be trying medley field or be back at action town - depends on who i drag along. Sending you a PM!
