View Full Version : First offical field paintball day

Well, took my pilot out for the first time today, and made it to the local field for the first time as well.

It was a kick in the pants!!!!!!!

When I got there I found out that the field was loaning everyone HPA tanks since it was so cold and snowing. There were anywhere from 6-14 playing at a time, and we did 5 scenarios and 3 speedball matches.

I did find out I need an electric hopper - even on semi-auto I was chopping (about 10 times in two rounds). I just thought it was becuase it was cold, but the one guy I took out said I was getting the paint out pretty darn fast - which coming from someone with some good experience was pretty cool.

Was a very good day, and the stock pilot did very well - just need to up the barrel, get a electric hopper (1st on the list) and convert to HPA as it worked very well.

Anyways - I am hooked now. Bad. :)

This sounds familiar for some reason hmmmmm. Just don't spend $200 for a mechanical semi-auto and don't start naming your markers and you may have money left for rent at the end of the month. OMG, another potential addict on the rise lol - :D

The first time I played at a real field, my gun kept having problems and I had to leave almost every game because of stupid problems, like hopper batteries, gun jamming because of chops, low co2, and lots of stupid stuff. glad to hear you had a good time though.
