Default I can't believe he bought it!

A friend of mine wants to get into paintball, but didn't have a marker. He told me that he wanted to stay under $100 because he doesn't know how much he will play. We are having a little paintball outing this coming Saturday, so he wanted to buy one and try it out. I recommended several different Spyders that he could pick up for under $100, but ultimately it was his decision. Well, this is what he bought:



Most everyone here has seen this, either a pic or the video, so I know it's old news. But I almost lost all bodily functions laughing so hard when I saw it in person. He told me that he got a really good deal on it ($99 in a kit)! I thought that I'd better bite my tongue and not rip on it too much because that will discourage him. So I tried to point out some positives on the marker and said that we will give it a workout on Saturday and see how it performs.

I'm still in shock.

If I get a chance to shoot it, I'll try to put an update here (although I doubt it really matters).

I think he almost cried when I started to laugh. Believe me, I tried for a Spyder. I don't think I want to try to backhand him. He's about 12 inches taller and weighs probably 50 pounds more. I'll just take it out on him on the field.

Triumph w/ gravity feed loader vs. Pilot w/ Empire Reloader B...you do the math.

Me with Triumph and grav feed vs. you with Angel A1 and VLocity, the math is the same either way, just make sure you factor in the players ability...

But anyway, I am looking for a full review I refuse to sell those things in my store so I havent gotten the chance to shoot one yet.

Certainly not defending the marker or your friend but he is a noob right? All he'll need now is a red sweatshirt and pair of blue jeans and he'll completely look the part -
