Goat, that's a pretty wicked gun you've made! People seem to hell diss electronics on a gun, but I reckon you couldn't have it any other way on yours!
oh yeah, nice sense of humour too you 'beast' :lol:

hey chaos, have the paintball rules in Aus changed recently? 'cause as far as I know, you only have to be 15.

anyway great job chevron (if you catch my drift!) :wink:

yer but its the laws that stop us from having your own paintball marker, thus fewer fields because of equipment costs ect....

there is only one field within 3 and 1/2 hours of me, if we were allowed to own our own i would have a field at my house lol. i seriously would.

the thing about 18+ was coz i heard of one of my uncles went with his son who was 15 and wasn't allowed to play due to field rules or some crap.

Yes paintball laws are bogus.Bowling and cheerleading have a higher injury count than paintball.The only restriction due to age in the US is 10 yrs.old(insurance reasons).I let my little sisters play(11&9)at the house and they love it.My homefield is an hour away from me so I don't get to play as often as I like.

Yeah I saw that one.There was another one somewhere I saw that had a big list of sports(not sure where it's at).I find it hilarious that people think that paintball is more dangerous than other sports.I know of 2 deaths and they were caused by someone unscrewing a filled CO2 tank.I have a friend who was 1/8"(vertebraes knocked out of place) away from being paralyzed for life playing football.Paintball is definetly the least when it comes to injuries.I have never hurt myself in 6 yrs. of playing.Alot better odds than when I played catcher in baseball.

This is probably the best gun I've seen on this site as far as practicality goes, I gotta say i love it. Im wondering how tightly the lip of the barrel fits against the gasket. Also, what's the diameter on those footballs... been searching but can't find an answer.

Well kudos Brian, although I wasn't even on this forum then.So i didn't take your idea.I kinda figured someone must have already thought of a break open.

And Pneumaninja,The barrel fits perfectly tight against the gasket.Look at a single shot shotgun.As long as the 2 parts on on the same plane they will line up flush.And SP is right nerfs are 2" wide. I wrap mine in computer paper(dry lubricant)and squeeze them into the cartridge for loading. Thank you for the practicality compliment.I tried my hardest to adhere to the KISS principle.
