Tim is more of a Speedball oriented guy, and sometimes he does come off as kindof an ass, But he's a great guy, knows his **** form experience, and he does drive like a crazy man, but I believe he does deserve some respect, SO lets keep it nice guys.

I tend to agree that he's a great guy and posts like these seem uncharacteristic of him.

well i play woodsball like a speedballer then and most of the woodsball "cover" is some of the worst cover ever. The cover in the woods are the worst, either your stuck in cover like "forts" and "bunkers" with no chance of leaving but your safe for the time being. The rest are trees and bushes most barely big enough to hide if your under attack. Movement and fire power when needed is the the key. My first shots will be a little more conservative and after that i'm done playing like hide and seek and i'm using that "saw" to either buy me cover or get them out.

I wouldn't play with these rounds if i was playing with a guy like tim around, if there were too many noobs i'd give it a shot just for fun pretending to be a sniper because odds are these noobs could also be barrel tagged in the woods too.

Ferret, don't make me lump you in with the morons... Paintballs are NEVER going to be as accurate as a bullet, and thus, you will always need more shots to get an "out."
The FN303 rounds already come like that. One round model has pepper, another has perm paint, one has washable paint and the 4th is their water/training round.......................and NONE of them are a joke to mess with.
And tasers work VERY well......provided both probes are properly embedded in the suspect/inmate. Hell, it dropped my Captain (Navy Seal) like a bad habit and I screamed like a little gurl that just got stung by a hornet......

Reluctantly I have to agree

---------------------------------------

MY point on this round is that the back fins, during a "hard target" test (plywood wall) DID NOT BREAK. Upon the shooter's inspection, it had sharp and jagged ridges on the edge that [his words] caught his skin and seemed as if it would tear flesh.

What is that going to do on the throat and how much kinetic energy still remains in that cylinder (the fins seem to be a structural integrity mechanism on a cylinder/cup)? The tester's description forces me to envision a hole saw.
How does that affect mask lenses...because we ALL know some idiots in our groups that don't change their lenses like they're supposed to.

I'm extremely skeptical about these rounds and their safe use on a paintball field.

Lol, I'm sorry, I guess I was a tad harsh in my wording... it was 1:30am and I was tired... I apologize if I was that harsh.

Druid works in a prison.

Paul: What I meant is that you can fire one of those in pepperball form and go onto the next target/suspect/prisoner. With a taser, you're committed to that one target/suspect/prisoner. Sometimes officers just don't have that opportunity.


EDIT: A few more thoughts, since I was in a rush typing this original post, and don't feel like double posting.

Alas, I'm an *******, born and raised. ("on the playground I spent most of my days..." name the show!) I keep it to a minimum but based on my experiences with woodsballers throughout my time playing this game has led me to believe they are a near-hopeless kind. There are the few (like yourselves reading this) that actually do get out of the woods and can understand more than just running around in camouflage (bit much to say for Paul, but I'm sure he'll roll with it ). Those kind of people I can respect. The rest are worthless morons, and morons are something I just cannot stand.

From that, I have learned to play the game as it's meant to be played: hunt down your prey and beat it into submission. This ruthless style of play keeps me being one of the above-average players around here (I'm in California, so that's pretty damned good seeing as we have the Bushwackers, XSV, Dynasty, Aftershock, etc etc etc). I am methodical and careful in my ways, and that keeps me alive and able to keep on playing in the game. That is one of the key aspects of a playing style: balance. You cannot be too over-aggressive and just get blown apart, but you cannot stay in the back watching everyone else. I like to think I'm at the happy medium, the nubes being overaggressive, and the "snipers" being the dumb-asses chilling in the back and not doing too much.

I agree, there is a place for a back player to cover movement, but this is woodsball. There is no need so long as you are a good enough player to know when to let loose and when to conserve. You obviously aren't going to open up and shoot a hopper at someone standing out in the open looking dumbly at their compass. Just run on down and shoot his ass a few times after checking for others.

What I meant when I said that I had "experience, intelligence, and practice" was that those three ideals affect a player more than any marker will. So long as the player has down those three, he could be rocking a TigerShark and still be whooping ass out on the field. I didn't mean it to sound so direct as an assumption of your abilities, but it seems my fingers typed something I didn't mean to say...

As far as APG goes, I half-ass agree with you. I think that their articles are more designed for the new player audience, and are quite weak for what I want to do on a field.

Here's an interesting tidbit... I wear red/black gear when I go playing, woods or speedball. Half the people I oust never see me coming. It's all about how you move, not what you wear. Sure, clothing could help (ghillie suits with Scout Snipers), but this is paintball... Lol!

And yes, I do drive aggressively. I want to get somewhere today, not in a week. Although, those crazy drivers that come into my lane don't help much...

Well, I'm done adding stuff on.

No harm no foul Red. Like I said before, I figured this wasn't very characteristic of you.

Fresh Prince, am I right? What do I win?

Now that's a story they need to hear, tell them whilst I attend school Tim.

I agree whit Tim on the clothing part, as long as you know how to move I could care less what you wear, hell wear a frickin bunny suit if you want but as long as dyou keep moving and stay hidden it won't really matter.

Hey Druid, do you work in county/ state or fed? I'm leaning towards state or federal due to the equipment you have at your disposal.
