For real? Only $5? That's awesome but at that point i'd just keep it and lend it to buddies.
Friends don't let friends use brass eagles.
Their is truth in those words.
For the most part, yes, I'd agree.
However, some of the markers they made when they were based out of Mississauga, Ontario were pretty cool. Good guns? Well, maybe for the time, but not by today's standards. Though, they were definitely cool guns.
And we can't forget that they made the 3rd electronic gun, the Rainmaker. I *love* Rainmakers. They'll tear themselves apart if you don't do the Mad Marty Mods, but they're a fearsome presence on any field. One guy I knew put a trumpet bell on the end of his barrel and it was the loudest paintball gun, bar none, that I've ever heard. I once accidentally fired mine in my basement and started yelling about tinnitus like Sterling Archer. Whenever I play with mine I constantly get chrono'd as refs can't believe something that loud is shooting the field limits.
So, yeah, Brass Eagle for a reliable woodsball gun? No.
Brass Eagle for the "cool" factor? With certain ones, yes.
