Default Re: my dilemma

i feel ya i think mine is 130/hour
im all for getting more guns, but since you all ready have a couple what is the sence in doing it i would save you money for a "rainy day" which is what i did. i put 5 dollars in a little jar at the end of each week and the other day i think i have enough to buy a good elec gun and a good hopper so my vote should be not hard to figure out

hmm, well, my parts list is over $300 now. half of it is just small parts (under $15.) i may be better off getting something like this and throwing some new parts on it.

I dont really like that, but whatever floats your boat.

buy a beatup timmy that has all the parts that you need for basics, and then get a new body or something.

what do you guys think i should do?
I think <GOD> on PBN has a couple Timmy's he's looking to part with, maybe hit him up... or there's always PBG's Species in BST!

i'm looking at 2 sub-$200 timmies right now, that bronze 2k2 and an orange ECX. i dont want to spend any more than that on a new gun. i'm getting that GZ body for free now because i'm helping the kid out, so i may just build that up over time. i've decided to finish my spyder first before i start another project. and tim is hooking me up with a zip kit for my imagine, so it won't be a POS loaner anymore.

oooh, thanks. i've been searching PBN, but then my wireless died and i couldnt remember what page i was on

i know, i was asking you about that kit, remember?

either way, i'll have to get an HPA tank. i wanted to get a cheap $50 tank, but i need something big because its a good 3 minute walk uphill from the field to the counter...

Default Re: my dilemma

another question. whats the average resale value on a mini? its one of the few high end guns i shot and i really liked it. the trigger pull in particular. how does it compare to an alias/2k5 timmy? because i know tim swears by his alias almost as much as his borg...
