View Full Version : pistol or pods?

04-14-2008, 07:58 PM
i was just thinking about going ahead and shelling out the money for some more qpods because i like to cary 700+ in paintballs on the field with me...buttttttttt i was thinking when a friend brought this up to me......what if i got a pistol instead and used that as my backup/extra ammo/plus i always wanted to buy a pistol

so good idea? bad idea?...if it is good is there any decent ones for under 100?

there arent many good pistols.
tac-8 is about it..but those are a good chunk of change

How about selling the Qloader and simply picking up a good hopper like a VLocity JR or HaloB? That way, pods don't cost $25 a piece, and you can carry as much as you want on the field.

I agree with that. The price for them is ridiculous.

If you wanted to get a pistol check out rap4.com's selection, they're a pretty penny but they also look the coolest imo.

check out pbreview. the pmi (i think) pistols got pretty good reviews, and they're like $80

thanks alot...i will check them out and selling the qloader isnt an option i love it and besides i just got it a week ago...thats why im selling my fasta. but i will check out rap4 and the tac-8

p.s. i already have the 500 round kit...so to get what i want i would only need 2 more 50-55 bucks or buy a pistol 80-120 bucks<---and i really need a pistol just kinda looking for a excuse to give to the wife to get one...lol:D

Or he could just buy them used for like $10 a peice.

If you want a cool cheap pistol, look for an old Splatmaster. They're light, they run on 10rnd tubes, and they're actually pretty accurate.

yeah I seen one of those for cheap on ebay didn't know much about them or even heard of them are they worth the 30/50 bucks?...and where can I get qpods for 10?..I need two

04-15-2008, 12:37 PM
splatmasters??? those are like classics!

04-15-2008, 05:02 PM
like classics? is that good or bad

04-15-2008, 05:08 PM
They are classics, DF just types like an overexcited school girl talks. :rolleyes:

04-15-2008, 05:17 PM
totally, I just LOVE splatmasters. I totally like couldn't live without one. OMAGAWD I think I see one now.


are splatmasters even semi? Not to mention they're difficult to find. I'd have to agree that a real loader is a good idea if you shoot that much.

04-15-2008, 05:22 PM
id go with a nelspot 007 :dodgy: i agree with everyone who says buy a real loader

04-15-2008, 05:25 PM
well im not buying a "real loader"...that will solve nothing...regardless of what loader i have (which is irrelevant)..i will use the same amount of paint...so my delemma is buy two more pods to make my 700 rounds i want or buy a pistoli got money to get either just wanted a opinion on pistols and are they worth buying

04-15-2008, 05:32 PM
They can be. Like, if you play sniper and someone gets close up on you in the brush, it's easier to take out the pistol than to maneuver the big gun around.

Yeah id buy a pistol........ill be part of the minority of the people who like pistols

04-15-2008, 05:35 PM
what caliber are nelspots, id buy one, those things are the originals, they probably would make the best pistol except i dont know if they are semi

04-15-2008, 05:54 PM
well i got my eye on 5 cheap qpods i only need 2 but they come as a pack....so its those or a p99 from rap4 ill decide soon thanks for the help everyone

I use an Ariakon overloard, it's cheep and works well. i will say though that in my opinion a pistol is a waist of money. I do play scenario but the only time I honestly use it is if the scenario requires us to clear a building. Other then that im packin dead weight. A pistol is a real novelty, looks cool, not so practical.

thanks for the input slim yeah i started thinking that also ...think im gonna go for getting more pods...hey thats why i spent money on a good vest right??? i can hold 6 pods 8 if i want on my vest and one on the gun...so imma do that ,just get 2 more pods
