Posted 11 May 2013 - 08:59 PM

After a long expensive journey I have arrived at my final destination. With the impending reality of college and adult life rapidly approaching I have come to the realization that gun whoring is a fruitless endeavor that has left me a mere shell of my former self. I have progressed through. nearly 40 Markers in about 2 years time and have reached a point where I am satisfied.

I realized this after I had spent an obscene amount of cash on my one of one death machine G6R "Predator 47"

After receiving offers for her over what I paid for it and having an impending eclipse sponsorship on the horizon I had elected to sell her. I ended up selling her for $1,000

With that thousand dollars I went on the hunt for a new "less expensive" marker.

What I found blew me away, I managed to pick up not one but two markers in a local deal.

I managed to pick up a Beat up Etek 3 AM With the Emortal Board and an Empire Sniper "Without the Barrel Kit" for a grand total of $350 for the pair.

I then copped a DW Fibur Barrel and some inserts for the Sniper and called it a day. I already had all my other gear.

I just want to help save any other perspective whores from the frustration. You do not need to spend $1,000 on a gun to have fun with the sport. Instead of blindly saving up money to dump on a highend be patient and wait for a good deal. I have $650 in my pocket now for the summer after getting rid of my G6R there is no need to have "the latest and greatest" to have fun playing paintball. My gun shoots paint whenever I want it to and it shoots paint well. I also have a nice pump for rec play. Please consider this a public service announcement. DO NOT let the mentality of a lot of the people playing paintball or on this forum convince you to spend money you dont have to. All you need is a gun that shoots paint and you are happy with. Dont let all the hype surrounding Highend Markers sway your decisions.

Anyone else have such an experience?

As always, thank you for your time guys, X

I am still in recovery please dont push me into remission. I have a bare wall in my room. I just want to put up a peg board and cover her with guns!

The guys that kick ass with some beat up old Ego/Timmy/whatever from 6-7 years ago just goes to show how little the marker really matters. If someone has the money then more power to them but I totally agree with what you did. Do you still have your Luxe BTW?

On a related note, I had someone come up to me today and talk about how if he wasn't accepted to the college he wants to go this year he's going to buy a Luxe 2.0 brand new. On top of that when I suggested buying a used 1.0 w/2.0 core he told me the 2.0s are $1200 new (which is basically the resale price!). Even if that were true it wouldn't mean that you should just go and drop that much cash, especially when you're not playing anywhere close to a level that would justify it (which both he and I sure as hell aren't).

I forgot I even posted that up on here. That was sold because I need book money.

I cant sell my markers. I have to keep them. I have to hoard them. The collection and wide range of markers mesmerizes me every time. Even the fact that they're low ends, it dazzles me for hours on end.

Hello, I'm Orange Chicken, and I'm a hoarder.

:( The price of education really fucking sucks sometimes. Kinda ironic why you sold it given what that person said to me too, very different viewpoints.

You know I have a bit of a collection but if push came to shove and all I could have is a bone stock Tippmann 98c I'd still be every bit as happy playing this great sport.

Someone Agrees!!! I have two GOOD guns that can fill any role I would want to fill while playing paintball. A nice pump and a dependable electro, It's all I need and I can say pretty honestly that Iwould not be afraid to take on anyone short of Pro Players with them. Difference between me and the whites is that I am complete I no longer have that hole in my heart from lack of satisfaction lol
