Default Re: CO2 hurts

When my brother got his first gun, he got it at big 5. Later that day his safety valves or whatever blew and he didn't know any better so he grabbed it and held it because it was on the sofa. He thought he'd get in trouble if it got on it. Both his hands were burnt from the tank. Felt bad for him =(.

No it was an assumption that and kids walking around on what I understand to be public property are automatically up to no good. I question what makes them "Punks looking for trouble". Not to mention I would be upset at you for taking out a bat as well, I have lived in some pretty horrid places, and I have never taken up any sort of arms to tell kids to leave my crap alone. Usually the presence of an adult will do the trick.

I just think that shooting a paintball gun at them causes you WAY more trouble than you realize, not only can they... sue. But if they are indeed "Punks looking for trouble" you just gave them a grudge. Goodluck protecting your "property" when they have a reason to attack it. just my .02

And for future reference, This is a family oriented paintball forum, I do not want to see any more discussions about shooting paintball projectiles of any sort at un-masked un-willing, individuals.

Learn your lesson guys, upgrade to HPA

Co2 is great in alot of ways, but its best to use HPA now-a-days. Ive blown out Macroline hose, orings ect..and have never had to worry about frost bite..

not all of us can afford the tank or have a plae to get them filled. id love to go air over co2 but its not cost affective for me at this time.

That's why you always follow the manufacture's instructions, or always screw the adapter on first.

No instructions came with this adapter..... my other one (brass) you can screw it onto the tank first and it wont pierce it until you install it on the gun.

SO this one I did just that and all hell broke loose, I was yelling at the wife to open the front door and I tossed it out into the front yard all hissing and spitting.....

Then my fingers started throbbing and burning like crazy.....
