    got back from a nice little game of P-ball :)

    it was my little sis's birthday and she wanted to play paintball. she's 13 now, and she played pertty good. since she IS only 13, we decided to pay extra for body armor :D

    it was funny sneaking up on my little sis and bunker'n her in a little building.
    me: "surrender"
    sis: "eeeeeek!!"
    *sis attemts to run away*
    *me pegs sis in the back*

    lol :D

    but she said she had a blast and wants to come back some time.

    I get hit in the thigh by my bro's Spider XL. got one of those Pball rings :) you know, when the ball hits and the soft center gives in, while the outer edge slams in with full force.

    but I got him back when we surrounded him and in all the chaos of it we managed to peg him 3 or 4 times before we realized we outed him. :D

    god I love this game!

    yep, i've thought of getting the new one as a sidearm for my hammer. it's getting to big to snapshoot anymore. being as i get stuck playing speedball so much a small semi pistol might come in handy everyonce in awhile.

    it seems they've gotten most of the problems with the orignal pt licked in the current version. only thing i don't like is 12 grams can get a bit expensive. a ca adapter would be nice for that reason.

    air soft is played at my feild


    PAINT BALLBONANZA

    here are the feilds


    [​IMG]
    good cover, mixture of buildings, and brush. the raised structure can cause problems for the team on the oposite side of it

    [​IMG]
    comes in town 1(small town) or town 2(full town). town 1 is fast and has great cover. town 2 you lose most of your cover, eccpet for the brush on the left and right.

    [​IMG]
    two bunkers on oposite sides of a wooded area, with a small open area. the open area has limited cover, but can be more promisng than the paths where ambushes are CONSTANT. friendly fire is constant from jumpy teammates.

    [​IMG]
    paint ball hell. lots of brush, mud, and cover is only in patches.

    [​IMG]
    FAST games here. basic tourney style arena. great for 4 on 4 matches, hell great for 10 on 10 matches! :D

    i will tell you though in my experience there's nothing like the satisfaction you get from taking the guy with the angel out with a single well aimed shot from your trusty pump.

    which pump. i've only used my own equipment, i've never rented. my first marker was a talon. my current is a kingman hammer. most fields here localy no longer have pumps for rent. nobody wanted to rent them. so they just use semi's now.

    here's a good pic of one from kingman
    [​IMG]


    i'll attach a pic of my stuff
    it's not exactly current.

    by the ball in the barrel i assume you mean closed vs open bolt. well, like most things related to paintball i'll say it's mostly personal preference. there are closed bolt semi's like the autococker which is a pump converted to fire semiauto. pumps are generally beleived to be more accurate. truthfully it's really the playing style that goes with it and evolves from playing that way.


    pumps
    pumps aren't much slower than a semi auto either. i can easily match the speed of any lowend to midrange semi with my pump. plus a good pump is typically cheaper than a semi. simpler to maintain, more reliable and moreefficient. you'll use less gas pershot and probably shoot alot less. i find that 200 paintballs is all i really need for a good day of play.

    semi
    hair faster, easier to snap shoot, more common. that's all i can think of. good for speedball.

    but over all there's not much difference at all tween closed an open bolt. all pumps are closed bolt and most semi's are open. paintballs are so inaccurate to begin with that not much will affect them. but probably the most accurate out of the box marker i've ever seen is the phantom. i personally use a pump because i'm faster with it, more comfortable plus i have more fun and walk away feeling more satisfied. i've always felt that i'd really rather struggle, playing my best and loose then win and fell like i had the game handed to me. when you play with a pump you know it was skill that got the guy out not a $2,000 marker and a case of paint.

    i might put some on my web site but it's pretty doubt ful i'll get around to it any time soon try looking at www.warpig.com

    what makes Paint Ball great is this

    1. you acctualy get off your ass
    2. thrill of the hunt, nothing beats hunting down another person in the forest.
    3. you get hurt. lazer tag is good, but do you think twice about jumping around a corner to attack? no, why? becasue lazers don't hurt. how in paint ball. those things are go'n 300fps and some times leave bruses, now you think twice about rushing that bunker. :D
    4. shoot eachother, and everyone walks away, with at worst bruised.!! :)

    i think the best thing is anybody can play. i've seen people hobble out to the field on cruches. they played just a static defense but they played. how many other sports can you have things like that.
