Topics I've Started

HPA vs NITRO

25 July 2011 - 03:08 PM

i can't find anyone local that leases out 3000 psi or higher hpa cylinders for our field, and we can't afford an air compressor. someone told me about using nitro cylinders instead of hpa cylinders. I found a local shop that will lease anywhere from 3000 - 6000 psi cylinders.

I've been told that hpa is 90% nitrogen, so is it ok for me to take a tank on a gun that has, oh say....1000 psi of hpa still in it and top it off with nitro? or do i need to empty the tank on the gun of all the hpa in it first and then put nitro in it? This is probably a stupid question, but i just want to make sure everything is safe with what i'm doing. Is Nitro even a good idea?

Stolen Tippman Guns

12 July 2011 - 08:23 PM

I'm part of an organization that does paintball for FREE. We don't charge anyone to play or use our equipment. Part of that equipment are Tippman 98 customs. We had 30 of them to lend out to players, but tonight we found that around 20 of them were stolen. We're going to do the usual stuff: take pictures of the broken door and report the theft, check craigslist and ebay for any postings of 98 customs, call paintball stores and ask if anyone has tried to sell them 98 customs.

My question is: Is there anything I'm missing or not realizing, or is there anything else I can do? Has this ever happened to any of you and you found them? If so, how did you find them? Our guns are clearly marked and easily identifiable.

Oxygen cylinder conversion to hpa

I found an empty oxygen cylinder (the 5ft tall kind) at a flea market. Can that cylinder be converted to an hpa cylinder?

Securing bunkers?

24 June 2011 - 02:18 PM

We use tent pegs to secure our bunkers onto the field. Is there a better way to secure them?

Net question

20 June 2011 - 08:28 PM

What do you do with the net when you're not playing? Just leave it as is? Our cable is attached to a boat wench. Should we lower the cable to relieve the tension or leave the cable up? Also, what's the best way to secure the net during play so the wind won't pick it up? I don't want the net to tear....
