    Default Paintball guns...

    Alright, I recently got talking to an old friend of mine, and he told me him and like 50 other people go into the woods on weeekends and play paintball. I was invited to attend. I'm looking for a paintball gun.

    I don't want to go apeshit yet, just something that will get the job done, it doesn't have to look pretty either.

    Anyone got any suggestions?

    XS cargo (32nd ave NE, off of Deerfoot North), pump action paintball marker 20 bucks
    200 paintballs at canadian tire ~15 dollars
    5 c02 catridges 5 bucks (you need about 1 cartridge per 50 balls with these guns) also at canadian tire

    You are set for about 1-2 hours for 40 dollars, get a feeling for it

    edit: Ahhh crap, you live in NY. Ebay?!

    Haha yeah, I live in the States man. I'm looking on Ebay right now. Just want to know what guns are good and what to stay away from.

    I like Brass Eagle. Reliable and fairly priced gun from my experience.

    Also on your search query paintball guns are also called 'markers' so you might be able to find more guns and hopefully a better deal.

    My brass eagle gun lasted me a season without jamming. It was pretty accurate too. I had a good experience with it. I'd listen to bol though, because he's HARCORE

    these ones at XS cargo, do they shoot pretty hard? or do they suck?

    I got shot in the leg, it wasn't like I couldn't walk or anything but it stung for 10 minutes and I had a welt (it was on bare skin I was shot). Ya call first because the last time I went they had none in stock. The guns jam sometimes, but what do you expect for 20 dollars? My gun lasted 2 months, until someone lost it. Pump action, like a shotgun. Fires one at a time, you might want to buy a paintball resevoir because it comes with 3 tubes that hold 10 paintballs each.


    Also it's very close to RPM so you can check out some nice cars.

    My Spyder Esprit should be here in a few days. Thanks for the help guys. I was looking at a PMI gun that came with soime extra's but I wasn't sure if they were good guns or not. Oh well, I'm sure the Spyder will serve well as a first gun.

    I told my friend about these little outings, he went ape shit and bought this:

    Haha, what a dick. I'm thinking about getting a laser sight for mine.

    haha don't waste your money on a 'laser sight'

    paintball guns are so not accurate it's not even funny, paintball is all about how much you can shoot and how fast.


    'sniper' haha

    everyone goes through the sniper phase, believe me, it doesn't happen.

    Ahh camping, but in real life. I tried spawn camping in real life once, but security escorted me out of the delivery room in the hospital.

    Actually bol, I started out as the brave kamikaze kind of guy. If you get shot enough, you eventually learn to stick back. I am a sniper
