Default My paintball gun!

Just made a litlle video of my Tippmann 98 Custom in auction. Its too bad i am selling it at the moment Currently it shoots around ten balls per second with average velocity of 230 fps. Imagine being shot from a distance of ten feet with full aouto, oh man next morning you just want to die, altough you get used to that after couple hundred rounds. Just click save target as and its about 1.5 mb. Any one else plays paintball?

The most painful paintball experience i had was a shot in the neck from bout 15 feet, and thats when I started wearing neck protector. When I go full auto while playing, ppl just go nuts its really load and sounds like a real submachine gun.

Been a few years since I played but was always a good time No one had cool guns like that when I played, all single shot that jammed lots.
Princess Jeanie you have the perfect woods to play in, spruce trees are hard to shoot through

I've played a few times but didn't like it much. It was kind of interesting, but I got hit once in the chest (>.<) at close range, once in the foot, once again in the chest, and then I got hit square in the thigh wearing stretchy pants and ended up with this huge bruise that looked like a target.

Oh yeah those trees would be a nightmare to play in...the backyard (the pic you saw was of the front going toward the road) is much better...and actually would make a great place to play.

Me? Paintball Freak?? Nah.

I'm hooked. I love the sport to death. My 98c may not be tricked out with the E-Bolt, but I like it. Here is my setup.

Tippmann 98c
JnJ Ceramic 14"
Rocket ****
Double Trigger
Red Dot
Empire Reloader
LED Mod
Eliminated Hopper Wobble
Pen Spring Mod
Custom Blue Paintjob
Remote Line

If anyone cares, I will explain everything a bit for you.

Tippmann 98c: Tippmann 98 Custom. One of the most under estimated guns on the market, you can trick these things out so they rip like no other.

JnJ Ceramic 14": My barrel. It has a teflon/ceramic coating, as well as injected into the pores of the barrel. Just like your pots and pans, it is non-stick. If you get a barrel break, I don't have to bust out the squeegee...I just shoot thrice times.

Rocket ****: The 98c'* have a cocking slot, and paint likes to get in there. This basically seals it all up so no dirt and paint can get inside. Also, it makes it so there are no external moving parts.

Double Trigger: Some people say they help you shoot faster, I have actually not shot with my double trigger yet, because I haven't gotten to play because it has been so cold out. I hope to try it out within the next week or so.

Red Dot: Its a sight. Sorta obviously. Paintballs aren't all that acurate...but I use it when I know exactly where someone is going to come out of. Helps me get the upper hand on them.

Empire Reloader: Sound Activated hopper. Aggitates everytime I shoot. Helps feed the balls faster...eliminating chops. Another thing I have yet to try out because of the weather.

LED Mod: Kinda cool, kinda pointless. Picture to follow. Basically it lights up everytime I shoot.

Eliminated Hopper Wobble: 98 customs are notorious for the hopper elbow to wobble back and forth. A few rubber bands that go on your braces...put them around the elbow and the little wobble is gone. Believe it or not, I consider it an upgrade

Pen Spring Mod: Everyone does this. Take out the trigger return spring, replace it with a pen spring. Makes the trigger pull a lot lighter. Haven't shot my gun with this either yet.

Custom Blue Paintjob: Pretty self explainitory again. Looks sweet, pics to follow.

Remote Line: Lasty, but surely not least. Moves the tank off the gun, and onto my belt. With it I can tuck my gun right up next to my body better. Therefore I can get in tighter to bunkers. Most people hate them, but I love mine.

That is basically everything on my gun, and what it does, now for the pics.



That one is pretty much everything, without the remote line.



There is the LED light. Everytime I pull the trigger it lights up like that. Then when I let go it goes out. Pretty leet IMHO.

Heh, wow, I just rambled on forever. But, this is what I spend all my time talking about. Paintball message board after paintball message board.

It would be pretty sweet though to play some paintball at a bonny meet Everyone could rent stuff if they didn't own their own.

Its not E-bolt that I got its a response trigger, for ppl who doesn't know what it does its just uses the excess gasses and push the trigger back to the start position.
