    Paintball

    1st: What else do I need? I have a paintball gun, hopper, ghillie suit, and mask (Planning to rent a jumpsuit and gloves, and purchase paintballs there).

    yeah i actually do play. So what kind of gun hopper and mask do you have? also you are aware if you have a ghillie suit whenever anybody hits you it doesnt have to splat just if you feel a hit you are out this rule is enforced on most fields just cause paintballs dont always tend to break on the suit. What else would you like to know? well i just go in jeans and a t shirt i dont really see a point in getting a jump suit i also bought gloves i just like the clean feeling on my hands instead of like all the paint dirt and grime you get from playing.

    I bought a "Tippman 200 round paintball loader", and the mask is "Proto Switch EL Paintball Goggle Mask Woodland Camo". And if you decide to rent a gun, is the default gun good (first of all, is it the same for every place?), heard the guns were single shot, so I decided to buy "Kingman Spyder MR4 Military Sims Semi-Auto Paintball Marker (Matte Black)". And are grenades worth it? (at PNL its $7 each)

    ok well first of all where i play paintgrenades are not allowed because one kid got hit in the head with it and got knocked out but honestly they suck its not really a grenade um well im guessing your setup is very basic if i were you i would try to start out with a better setup because rental guns and anything thats a standard single shot gun is going to be bad also your hopper isnt electric so you might have jamming problems i have a Planet eclipse etek2 and a dye rotor and a Carbon Fiber HPA tank laying around at my place if you want to buy them the hopper new its 200$ the gun back in 08 new was 500$ and the tank new was 180$ but understandably i have used a few time lol and its 2012 but this is a very good setup if you are able to return your gear i would and you should look into buying a electric gun which my planet eclipse etek 2 is im not looking to get my ammount back i just want to sell it. So hit me up if you want it. Also be aware that electric is better because your going to encounter like 12 year olds who have like a epic electric gun and just spray and pray on full auto and its going to piss you off if you have a semi auto.

    well lets see i play paintball i go in a t shirt unlike 99% who play in like snow jackets when its 90 outside paintballs go at 300fps and its a big ball airsofting you play and im not sure how fast the little plastic bbs go but litterally you have to shoot a guy 100 times till he gets out everyone cheats and its just stupid in general because you actually "mark" somebody. every paintball reff i talk to says people who play airsoft over paintball are pussies.

    You're a pussy for not dying because you're scared of death. See my logic? It's dumb as yours.

    they have different modes so you can do like "ramping" pull the trigger at a steady rate of your gun starts shooting at 15balls per sec etc yes the spyder fenix is a electric paintball gun and yes my gun also has the same modes as that. Yes a 200$ hopper brand new its a Dye Rotor holds 200 paintballs and can feed paintballs a 50bps. Its so fast to make sure that it is impossible for you to jam. Also my electirc gun has eyes which means it will not shoot until a paintball is in the breach which is good because less chopping paint means less messes to clean up more time out there playing and less money wasted. So if your interested in buying hit me up im willing to sell these like dirt cheap lol.
