I say go for it, but watch out for those leaky fittings! You may want to drill and tap them for the standard threads, the stock ones on the stp I hear aren't very strong

In Topic: Getting into pump.

I would go with a Phantom. Customized however you like it, idiot-proof and autotrigger out of the box. Throw it on a chrono, then go play all day with no hassles. If you don't know anything about pump, a Phantom is a great place to start.

In Topic: Paintball field sued by non-profit for the blind.

21 December 2011 - 12:17 AM

Being visually impaired is a very very broad term. The group was most likely considered legally blind, not fully blind. In any case, myself being visually impaired, it is hard(er) to play paintball the less vision you have. It is all well and good for the group to try and see if they can play paintball, I say go right ahead... to a certain point. My vision corrects extremely well for my circumstances, and I am all for everyone getting an equal right to participating in whatever they deem possible. Paintball, however, is a very, very big grey area. It is a sport that is very fast paced, and that causes trouble for those with visual impairments, let alone if an individual is legally blind. I don't see how even if the field let them play the group would have fun. Just focusing on running to the correct position whilst not running into anything would be difficult, let alone shooting at the other players. In this case, its not a matter of equality, its a matter of safety. Be it the safety of the group (now the suitors), the refs and staff of the fields, or the other players (if they didn't know the group in question was visually impaired.) Long story short, these lawsuits make me sick, honestly, if you have an impairment, don't let it stop you from doing everything a "normal" person can, but know your limits for God's sake!
