my budget baller guide

05 August 2010 - 11:29 PM

So here is my guide to a cheap way to play paintball....

LETS BEGIN.......
To start with, yes i followed some of Mike's rules about gear BUT I changed it around a little bit, originally I got a mask first like Mike recommends to do, BUT I baught a cheap one from walmart just a facemask. Hell i didn't know what to expect so it may have been dumb but being a rookie, really wasnt thinking straight.Next I searched Craigslist for some cheap ass guns. found some here and there but nothing worth what they were asking. so i did some research on PRICES!!! how much this gun was or that gun was or how much that starter kit cost..

NOTE!!!: THE ABSOLUTE BEST ADVICE I CAN GIVE IS.........ASK AROUND TO YOUR FRIENDS. SOMEONE MAY HAVE A CHEAP GUN THAT THEIR WILING TO PART WITH AND IF THEY DO..BINGO ITS GOLDEN. my first gun was given to me by my best friend and it was a Spyder victor II and I to this day wont sell it because to me its a trophy

So now that you did your research, for gun wise i would ask friends (check the note in blue). To find a decent gun i went back to craigslist and searched for paintball stuff under my state (rhode island craigslist) in the search box just click and type paintball. everything will come up and you can get a decent deal like i found my tippmann A-5 for 80$ that i got for less THAN THAT. and the gun works perfectly to this day.


NOW.....
for c02 well again i went to craigslist but you can get tanks at like walmart, Dick's sporting goods and probably even Target for about 20-30 dollars.

HPA'S are a total different story, i found 1 on craigslist but it was junk, i would honestly get them brand new so you can be sure its perfect

other gear like packs and jerseys pants gloves neck guards sundannas etc i would get at a store because some shops( 1 in particular near me in RI is Unhallowed Paintball) and they sell stuff cheap like 40 to 50 dollars can get you a brand new jersey pants and even gloves.


MOST IMPORTANTLY.......
IN order to actually play paintball you need umm whats it called?.....OH YEA PAINT to play PAINTball ya know ....paint...paint ball....ok yea suckish joke anyway!!! i would highly recommend hitting up EBAY for this one. i found a guy on ebay who sold me 1 case of firststrike rounds and 20 boxes of paintballs for exactly 145$ (YES NO LIE I PAYED FOR IT MYSELF). i also found a guy there selling just 10,000 rounds which is approx 5 boxes? or so for 10$ + shipping and handling which was about 7$ so for about 17-20$ you were geting 10,000 rounds

SO IN A RAP....
First- Mask
second - HPA or CO2 (if u want a remote line id get that with this package)
Third- Marker
Fourth- pack
fifth- jersey, pants, cletes, gloves, neckguards, sundannas etc

ANY QUESTIONS JUST ASK IN A PM OR ON HERE IM USUALLY ON MY LAPTOP 90% OF THE TIME IF IM NOT AT PAINTBALL PRACTICE

NOW REMEMBER THIS IS MY OPINION AND MY DETAILS THAT I FOUND AS WELL AS THE WAY I DO THINGS SO IF YOU CHOOSE TO DO DIFFERENTLY THATS YOUR DECISION


NOW ID LIKE TO APOLOGIZE HERE AND ON MY POST BELOW THAT I DIDN'T MEAN TO SAY 15 CASES IT WAS MEANT AS 1 CASE AND 20 CASES OF PAINT. I KNOW AND CAN SEE THAT MY MISTAKE OF LACK OF SLEEP CREATED A HUGE MESS, I APOLOGIZE AND WILL TRY TO MAKE SURE I CORRECTLY GET ALL MY FACTS STRAIGHT ON THAT. AGAIN I APOLOGIZE


gear help, rating, advice

05 August 2010 - 09:25 PM

Hi,

Ok, I'm new to the whole xball and airball, I was and am a woodsball player but I just recently got 2 airball guns (I do apologize if my terminology is off a wee bit) my guns are an Ion (black) not sure what type since it was ordered as a late birthday present, and i have a Spyder Velocity with appache speed hopper and carbonfiber hpa tank and 16" barrel. my mask is a JT Pro flex pink frame and i have 09 proto pants and 09 proto jersey, I've used a few different pod packs but i can't really tell the difference.

I'm really looking for some advice on eather
A. better equipment
or
B. podpacks and other gear

thanks

Tippmann A-5 flatline

30 July 2010 - 03:27 PM

hey, my team and I have this ongoing battle question of what is better, a flatline or my 22" bored out sniping barrel. Now I know that obviously the flatline is no sniping barrel really (I know you can use it, I have) and I know the 22" is no frontline barrel for like a front or mid player, but just want some advice on what is the just overall better and more favored barrel to use.

thanks for the advice and opinions (giving thanks ahead of time)
