Alright so I finally got some a pic of my gun today. This one is my gun, and is on the way out soon. Gun shoots really nice though, almost wish I would keep it. I know we got some DP haters in the pic threads, so lets keep the bashing to a minimum.

Haha, I already am. Jar for all the spare change already. Got some cash, and Im going cheap on my first car. As long as it drives I don't really care. And I dont think it will be a problem to afford buying one. I can make 150 a week just buying and selling, if not more, some just a couple months of that, and I can get a car.

08-01-2008, 07:34 PM
I said if it runs i dont care too.
Now, its not so delightful. Prepare to buy alot of parts for it. I've had mine since october and I'm still buying stuff for it. Right now, its a 5 dollar oil plug. :D

But ya, it looks bronze due to camera flash.

brown, bronze,whats the diff... its shiny...

i like how you said "as long as it runs." you'll say that, and then the repair bills start coming in. i had to get a $300 part replaced 2-3 months after i got my car (an '01), and i'm looking at at least another $500 in repairs/maintenance right now. and i hope you dont mean that literally. look at all the POS cars people drive here in kentucky...

I didn't like my Threshy... shot like a tank. Really purty markers though! You'll never find a gun as well milled as the Threshold, it's one thing DP did right! These are a few pictures of mine when Taco had it, just to show what the actual green version looks like... So those who were/are confused won't be anymore.

You can't fit in a job playing JV basketball? Seems weird, I know I've got time to work playing varsity hockey so I'm sure if you tried you could figure something out.

Anywho, I love the look of the threshy, never shot one tho. Nice pickup can't wait to see what's next.

DFSniper
08-02-2008, 11:42 AM
national minimum wage is $6.55 before taxes, and about $5 after, kentucky has a relatively low cost of living, but their taxes suck... working a 73 hour paycheck (due to 30 min. lunch breaks in a 40 hour week), i lose 21% of my paycheck to taxes, so... $5.17 after taxes. i make barely enough to pay for gas and insurance, and my student loan money is running out. so right now i make less than $200 a week, and once classes start, it'll be half that.

Well I got school till 3:15, then I got two hours, then I have to leave to go back at school, and have practice at around 5:30 till about 7:00. Get home at around 7:15 and eat dinner and take a shower and its 8. Not much time to work after that.

Not sure why'd you make your dad buy a pm8 which you CLEARLY do not need. Pretty much a waste of money.

Ace24
08-04-2008, 02:13 PM
You shot a Threshold and you thought it shot horrible? Why? I honestly dont know why everyone complains about it.

Because the dump system on the gun is too rough. It's like shooting a tank.

The G3 is the smaller, more improved version of it. They realized they had way too long of a gun for what they needed and cut it in half.

It does feel horrible compared to other markers.

codymm1014
08-04-2008, 02:56 PM
The shoot rough? I think it shoots pretty smooth. To me it shoots close to a Marq. And the length? Psshhh, its no longer than any other higher end gun that Ive shot. The length of the chamber gives it much better efficiency too.

Just my personal opinion. I love the gun, and I think its really comfortable. But different strokes for different folks.

codymm1014
08-04-2008, 07:01 PM
Alright so it looks like the team I am on is going to be sponsored by Dangerous Power. To hold myself over until their new Rev-I comes out, should I
A. Keep Threshy
B. Sell Threshy, buy G3 at sponsor price
C. Sell Threshy, buy F8 at sponsor price

And like I said, this is to hold me over till I can get my hands on one of those new Rev-Is. Cant wait till they come out.

Is it any of youre buissness???:cool:

Oh do you now what happens when you assume? dont tell me its a waist if you dont now anything, how bout if u dont have anything nice to say dont say it at all:pwnd: :pwnd: :pwnd:

I play in the preofessional league down here thats why and ive paid him back about 800. Plus Im going to the worldcup too.;)

Deff go with B. The threshy is nice and it doesnt shoot that bad but, the g3 is alot lighter and smoother. Pretty cool you guys are sponsored by DP. They make sweet products, My cousin has an f8 and it looks super sweet and shoots pretty good. The only problem of the f8 is that its spring return hammer. Id go with the g3 over the f8.

codymm1014
08-06-2008, 05:41 PM
Well we are not officially sponsored yet, still talking back and forth with another company. I think I am going to get the G3 for the sake of upgradeablity, but I still am going to get the Rev-I when it comes out. lol. World cup is too long away for me to wait for it though. haha.

Go to a real country why dont ya?

Watch your tongue. :mad:

The Thresh and the G3 are the same gun, but the G3 is a shorter bolt system. Not shorter gun. The shorter dump valve system works more efficient, smoother, and responds in less recoil. I'd do B, trade her in for the G3.

Lol. Marqs shoot better than Thresholds. Way better! The Threshold I owned wasn't very well taken care of prior to Muddy Taco getting his hands on it, so it was a little rough around the edges, but the internals were fine. That being said... they shoot like tanks. I adjusted the dwell up, lowered the PSI, still shot like a tank even though it should have been smoother. I tweaked and tweaked and tweaked the pressure... still a tank. Nothing can help that gun with it's design. It's just too rough of a design, as Ted said. Now, if it had a smaller dump valve area that had a "ram" per-se attached to a larger bolt face, it would do a lot better. But for what it is right now... tank. Especially after trading my Borg for it! Boy, I made a big ****-up there! I traded that Threshy right off for my current Borg, and haven't regretted that one bit.

that is an awesome trade, Ive never seen a borg or a marq for that matter in person. There isnt a single one of any of em in Guatemala.

08-07-2008, 09:24 PM
Well... Thresholds are $400-500, just like '06 Borgs are $400-500... straight up trade pretty much. :)

Back when I bought my Borg, though, I got it for $500 with a Pulse and a jersey... that was about a year and a couple months ago, when '06's still sold for about $500-600. ;) I <3 my Borgs, you really should try one! I don't know about shipping to Guatemala, but you should ask TimberTiger about them. He might be able to hook you up, NastyStank!

Cody, Marqs shoot marginally better, but in that range of marker, the finite differences really stand out to me. The Cyborg is ABSOLUTELY the BEST marker in the $400-500 range. Sooooooooo smooth stock, all they need is a decent ASA and barrel, and a PBK trigger. After that... the gun will DRAG YOU down the field mowing faces when the refs say "go." ;)

Well technically ny resale market right now, they are worth *roughly* the same. But I have used Marqs extensively before, and I think they are much better than Thresholds.
