Tank Explosion ( ACI Tank ) Please Read

19 May 2009 - 02:09 AM

just saw this on warpig.
Apparently ACI had some bottles left over with the old wider thread system. They made an adapter so you could fit the new style regulators on these tanks and were sold company direct. One of these tanks found its way to a local proshop for an airfill. When filling the threads of the adapter stripped out causing the regulator to snap back striking the person filling in the chest throwing him back several feet also rocketing the tank across the room threw a display. Randy Bocelli (person filling) walked away intact minus a good thud-n-tumble. Luckily there were no customers in the showroom when the tank fired.

The Adapter
Keep in mind the tank itself did not explode the explosion happened when the threads in the reg adapter ripped out. Judging by this pic of the regulator it looks like the adapter is the silver zrez just below the red regulator body. It acts as a stepdown from the old wider thread system to the new narrower regulator thread system. These adapters would found on are some of the older ACI tanks.

If at all possible try to notify your local proshops and fields about this incident. They deal with several hundred tanks per month and can/should help get these tanks out of circulation before something like this happens with another full showroom/airfill line.

post from warpig. the second link has a larger vid n pics of the tank.

Much Luck & Support Randy

Digital Paint: Paintball2 - Old Q2 mod :)

13 January 2009 - 12:50 PM

thought a few of you guys might find this enjoyable.

Paintball2 is a stand alone paintball mod based off the Quake2 engine.
Nearly everything is custom from markers to player uniforms. Just download the game and hit play. Maps n such automatically download if you do not have them.

Download It here <- build 23 is the current version.
My personal DP server is JoeZam's Pub

When you first start up the game you will be asked to login to your dplogin acct. Some servers require a login acct some dont.
If you do not have one you can either click cancel or acquire one for free at www.dplogin.com. Players are only permitted to have 1 acct per person. If you are found with multiple accts you get global banned from the game.
