You know what'd be crazy.....if someone actually replied to half of these threads.....i mean, what's the point in a forum if u're only reading things, if we were all like that then there would be nothin to read in the first place.....

TALK DAMN IT

i fell you man

I know exactly what you mean, ive got a forum of my own. If nobody posted on it, it would be a blank page. When lurkers realize that, forums will be the best places for information on the internet. I have to say this webpage is one of the best places for BMX information, and its quicker than email.. Good work fella!

To be honest, I wouldn't change anything. It is a very nice forum and I enjoy using it. I think sub forums are evil. If you've ever been to www.paintballcity.com , I think they have way to many sub-divisions. I mean, there's enough forums for everything there is, but a lot of forums don't get used. So it's best to have one forum, then everyone that comes here will see it. They don't have to go "searching" to find stuff. Just my $.02 .

Paintballs great fun. I have my gun cranked up high enough to dent a coffee can. It's awesome. Can't wait to go squirrel hunting. What kinda gun did you have?

Stupid question:

I actualy got into paintball big time a few years ago... I still have boxes of paintball stuff, i should probly sell it to finance my next bike Anyone own a mag or angel? i think i have some cocker 4-ways and accessories too... i'll dig it out if i can find it.

This is a picture of my pride and joy, it was a pump action palmer houndstooth, custom orderd, SN #109 It shown with a 20oz as the source, but i usualy ran a 68ci n2 setup via remote.




Dr. Pimper, keep the gun under 300fps! I saw a kid loose an eye at a game i was reffing, his friend thought it would be funny to crank up his gun on the field, and snuck a hex into a bunker. After the incident, i chronoed the gun at 435fps

2nd Q, nah, it dosent look bad

The lens shatterd, his eye was cut by pieces of the mask, it was really sick. It may have been an old lense, most people dont change them every 3 months like they should... play safe.

This is a joke.

Hah!!!

I do have a BB gun though, I of course don't shoot anybody with it. I have never even been close to shooting my eye out. You know in that movie, a Christmas Story or something like that? His mom is like," You'll shoot your eye out" and everybody else is like," You'll shoot your eye out". There must have been a period in time where tons of kids had BB guns, and a few of those kids where dunder-heads and somehow figured out how to shoot their eye out. The only way I can figure out how to shoot my eye out is to point the gun directly at my eye and shoot, or to have the BB bounce off of whatever you where shooting. Both of those can be avoided.
