it's a pro stock 05 with an E2 frame. I bought a new barrel, on/off valve, and feed neck all the stuff is like 650$. I hope to get my PM6 soon. (E2 is very expensive)

A buddy of mine has an autococker and really enjoys it. Heck, I'm old enough to remember when it started as a pump gun conversion and drooling over it in Action Pursuit Games magazine. I was a po' boy so eventually I bought a Tippmann 68 Special for $400 back around 1990. It lasted me a good long Time without any problems. Eventually I transitioned to the real thing and settled on shooting paper and metal targets out in the desert.

Good Times though the modern hobby of paintballing has become a bit too technical for me and it makes me feel nostalgic for the days I used to say "Dave Youngblood just shot me" instead of "I just bought a DYE barrel."

Ironically enough, while reading an article about Dave Youngblood I stumbled across not only his origins, but a reference to the Rubik's Cube in the same paragraph that talks about him.

http://www.68caliber.com/features/artic ... y04302.php

And yes, I did indeed get shot by the fellow in the silver prom suit with his shiny silvered pump gun.

But that's a story for another day.

electronic guns are so much more fun than mechanical. I can shoot 12 or 13 shots per second on semi.

Electronic guns are what eventually made me leave the hobby.

What started as a game of stalking your opponents eventually evolved into a game of pinning your opponents with rapid fire until you could angle in for a kill shot. The paramilitary trappings eventually got ditched for more of the dirt bike rider look.

Not that any of this is bad, it's just different, but it wasn't what I enjoyed about paintball.

stalking people isn't as fun in paintball. because you have to be too close to them. also in speedball it's much more agressive and team work. in woodsball on a huge field you need radios to comunicate. I also like speedball because it is in a flat field with air bunkers. no silly variables like high ground, trees and rocks. I slide to every bunker I go to pretty much.

Like I said, the difference in how the activity has transitioned over the years. What you consider "isn't as much fun" might just be someone else's slice of pie.

how about this one
http://www.pipersprecisionproducts.com/m134_6mm.htm

its insane.
I used to have 2 softair bb guns. One was just a 5.5mm walther and the other one was an electric fully auto mac 11. I loved the mac 11 even though it did not quiet have something like 12 rps and the range was shorter. Anyway my brother broke both of them accidantelly. I was pretty mad but now he can't bar me from using his m4 rifle. Its not electric though. I still miss my mac11

I don't really like air soft. when I'm playing I'm not afraid to be hit and make careless moves but in paintball when people are shooting at you it's intimidating. more of an adrenaline rush.
