Just go there and take every second paintball from your hopper, you will probably lose. But hey, what the hell. Seriously I got like ten .22 rounds by doing that. Go to the range and pocket every second one. Trust me, try it.

Then again I don't feel like paying $100 to get 50 rounds or so. . . .

Just a quick thought.
If you use 20mm Electrical pipe it is perfect for shooting Jaffa's.
The best bit is that they shatter well on impact.
Bad thing is when they are shot fresh from the fridge they can dent tin sheds easily. best of shot at room temperature. Don't ever shoot at another person. It would hurt a lot more than a paint ball and besides it is just wrong!
Also another bad thing is getting hungry and consuming your ammo yourself :lol:

Sorry did I misspell it? :wink:

Jaffa's taste the same whether in New Zealand or Australia. Besides the picture of those jaffas looked like the best way to explain.
All in all you must try them.....they taste great....and as far as ammo is concerned we Aussies have to improvise.

My friend (1) got a paintball off me, went up to another friend (2) and said 'here have a jaffa', little did my friend (2) know, it was a semi-frozen orange paintball :D

Ok boys!
It aint all that hard to obtain a class A licence. Police cheack and some dollars will do the trick.
After getting your shinny new licence you can purchace paint balls CO2 canisters and even a paint ball gun when your letter to obtain arrives.
All over the counter at your local gun shop gun smith or skermish range that has a licence to sell A class firearms and ammo.
and of corse with your licence angry looks from local police dissapear when carring such items around.
Hope this helps

Well I am 18 in about 6 months and I plan to get my class A licence so I can buy a paintball marker-The Tippmann C3.Hopefully it falls into class A,because it's combustion.Then it's paintball galore.

I did some research,and I found that out just recently.I'm waiting till next week to give the fire arms registry a call and get all the info I need on how to obtain my Class A licence.

I went into the police station about 2 days ago and asked about Class A fire arms licences and I got a Dick Head of a cop who kept saying I don't know anything I can't help you so I asked to talk to some one else and he said there was no one else to talk to and asked me to leave the building. . .Then later on that night I was driving with my friend and The same officer pulled him over and warned him on doing burnouts,and he will defect his car if he doesn't get new tires etc and doesn't fix his front right light and then pursued to ask me questions about drugs and if I had been drinking and told me to stop doing his job because I told him that the tires he had on still had 4mm of rubber on them. . .And last night I was at a party and guess who showed up!The same officer trying to get me to move on and saying he will fine me $300 for public disturbances and fighting because he had "Reports" of me fighting out the front of the house.Then being told to "Shut The fork Up, Or I Will Pole Drive You" because I was getting people out of the house instead of letting him into the property(I asked for his search warrant :wink: ,made him happy ). . .And they try be the good guys. . .

Being a cop has its perks. Not all cops are dicks.

You mean your uncle? That's what the father of your cousin is usually called.
