Question Re: Thoughts on new generation of guns

Yea I fifth the paint-prices statement! Definitely gotta make them cheaper. I think the all-electrics will eventually rule, but wouldn't they be unusually quiet? I mean that'd make some interesting scenario stuff for all the people who can't legally use silencers, but what about tournament-ball?

I dunno what the problem with paint prices is...I never paid for paint.

Nothing made by Tippmann or NPS will ever take over. Period. Both of those guns are retarded, along with the people who use them.

Your a lucky man. I spend almost as much on paint as I have on my marker

For all of you complaining of paint prices consider this: in the 80's, paint cost $10 for 100rds. Almost as much as some of the rip off fields that charge an arm and leg for fpo paint -

I think that the propane idea is worse than the 100% electrically marker that was put out not too long ago. Especially in a electronic marker. What if you had a short in a wire and it sparked as some gas was being release, now you have a flame thrower instead of paintball gun.

As for paint prices I have seen them coming down. A couple months ago Marballizers (paint I normally shoot) was up around $65. I was at the same shop a week ago and its down to $43 a case. So its getting there. It'd be nice if it got down closer to $20 a case for good paint, guess we'll just have to keep waiting for that.

But you also must remember you were shooting pumps. Those 100 rounds would last you a day of play.

Back on the C3 propane subject, If you had a pin sized leak and you left it in you house, imagine what would happen if would light a candle after the gas has been leaking for a while.

WOAH WOAH WOAH WOAH WOAH!?!? High paint prices!? HAHAHA!!! We need to get some old-timers in here to knock some sense into you! We're down to the point where you can pay 2 cents a ball for decent paint!!! Even less for budget stuff!!! Look back to when people were paying up to 40 cents per ball; the price is now twenty times lower!!! Some manufacturers are even wondering how long they'll be able to maintain these low prices! I'll try to find the article, but kind of a preemptive tl;dr, it's an interview or article with or by an insider in the paint production industry... The term he uses is, "artificially cheap" and says that companies are having trouble sustaining these low prices. He also says that some companies are even loosing money!

tl;dr: Don't complain about paint prices. Shut up, pay up, and play...

Actually the C3 and the usage of propane are safer than the usage of your average HPA bottle. http://www.warpig.com/paintball/tech...s/tippmann/C3/

That is why Propane is so ready available in the consumer market compared to HPA.

All it takes to stop production is one little kid hearing about making it into a flamethrower, going out and trying to do it, and blowing himself up in the process.
