Things have been awful tight even for a hustla like me. In my first month of paintball I managed to buy and receive 2 Tippmann custom pro's, the first with egrips and double trigger, second bone stock, 4 barrels, 2 co2 tanks, and 2 very pathetic gravity hoppers
total price 110$
Now Im trying to scheme up a couple of hpa tanks and some halo too's but damn If I cant afford them right now
Not only that I would really like to get a new gun but with a price range of zero its really a pain.
I think this is the order of my next purchases
steel Hpa tank 50$
Invert halo too 50$
second steel hpa tank 50$
New gun 200-400 (if Im lucky)
Not only am I outfitting myself but to my suprise my girlfriend loves playing paintball herself so thats double the trouble
oh and Im 24 and I buy all my own gear
I was very unhappy when my energizer battery was dead after around 4 hours of use on my Tippmann Custom Pro with egrip. I was told that the paintball specific battery was a better option. Im all about supporting paintball companies and supporting the industry but are these batteries that much better?
Which brand do you use?
Are there good alternatives when you cant get ahold of the paintball batteries?
Or does my gun just eat batteries for breakfast?
Lost my playing spot for at least a few weeks until drama blows over. Its a real shame how people cant buck up and take responsibility for their actions. Anyway If there is anybody in the Lancaster area that would like 2 new players My girlfriend and I we would like a spot to have a good time and pop some shots off. We are by no means great players we have only been playing for 3 weeks and cant really afford to go to any of the fields right now. We are 24 and 26 years old and enjoy the game a lot. Hit me up if anybody has an open spot for some newbies on their home field
I was looking at hpa tanks and the 48ci 3000 tanks can be found for 50 bucks while the carbon fiber tanks sell for 100$ more than that... Do I really need to spend that much money when they both need hydro's after 5 years? Im a big guy at aroun 5-10 and 220lbs and dont think that weight difference would bother me since I have been using a tippmann but plan on upgrading this week. Am I missing something? Those 4500 tanks look interesting but my local shop only fills to 3000 anyway so until they upgrade their compressor should I stick to some cheap tanks?
I would like some thoughts and opinions on this to help me with my future purchase since I am ditching the co2
EDIT: Found out the shop does fill 4500 they have it inside the air shed that and I didnt know about it
