Paintball... is it the best? Can it be improved? Any tips for beginners, (such as myself,) or long passed down tips for the expert? Anything about paintball should be typed here.

I found this at http://forum.specialopspaintball.com/index.php?showtopic=58518 . I brought this to the Instructables community because some people don't seem to realize what paintball really is. Post you tips and questions and I will either add them to an Istructables or try to answer your questions. But if you click the link and read, you will probably won't have any questions.

I have a cheap jt paintball mask that came in a kit with a cheap pump gun I got a while ago. The mask is just short of 1/8" thick and made of bendable plastic. It offers protection from paintballs at 200fps but I am not sure about higher velocity guns. It can only protect against up to 300 fps. So could I use it for battles with semi auto guns like viewloaders, tipman 98s and so on (beginner/intermediate guns)? or will I have to purchase a new one. Note: I have long since lost the manual for it.

What is the thread size on the NXT Shocker paintball marker feedneck ?
I was looking at the referrals for my Airsoft Trip Mine instructable, and was led to this site: http://www.x7og.net/. Faced with a long list of forums, I browsed under the "Alternative Weapons" category, hoping to find a post containing my trip mine (haven't found it yet). What I found, however, can only be described as the epitome of pure DIY paintball awesomeness. A team of people built a working paintball tank out of tractor parts and various other things. It's so epic, I just had to show it to you all. Here is the forum that documents the making of the tank:http://www.x7og.net/alternative-weapons/13294-fbk-tank-ny.htmlEdit:Woohoo! My mine was mentioned twice! :D http://www.x7og.net/alternative-weapons/18028-need-design-baby-powder-pressure-mine-2.htmlEdit Edit:Goodness me! More tanks! http://www.x7og.net/alternative-weapons/5438-paintball-assault-vehicles-thread.html

Want some art nice and big on a wall and don't want to break out a ladder? The Facadeprinter in Germany is something that can help. It's a computer-controlled paintball gun that can make paintings 8m tall and 10m wide. The computer takes into account the shape of the target so there's no distortion in the final piece. Check out the video to see it in action. Facadeprinter via Wooster Collective facadeprinter.org - three stones from Facadeprinter on Vimeo.

My neighbor was selling a standard paintball gun and all of the accessories and a pant pistol. He made me an offer for $40 for just the Pistol and the accessories, i don't know what he'll charge for the gun and the accessories but probably a little more. Should I get just the pistol and use it only or should I buy both if the price is low. What do you think? (Thats not the one in the picture)

Question by zupyo22 8 years ago | last reply 7 years ago
Basically, I convinced the owner of my local paintball field (not telling) to run a TF2 scenario game, mainly because he's also a big fan of Valve, and because I agreed to pay for half of it. I already have volunteers who are willing to wear the costumes and have fun. I've already developed costumes (posting Instructable on costumes later). I've also found a suitable paintball sentry (www.paintballsentry.com/index.htm). Thing is, I'm absolutely at a loss for weapons. The only paintball shotgun I can find would be a shotgun made by RAP4, which is not a good manufacturer, and I have no idea what to do for the medic's healing, dispenser's healing, and teleporters. I need ideas for weapons and buildables, and they have to look at the very least vaguely like their game counterparts. If anyone could help, I'd be much obliged. Kthx, Gears of Awesome

Question by paintball soldier 10 years ago | last reply 10 years ago
I'm thinking of staring paintball, and I need suggestions for a paintball marker. I'm thinking of buying either a Tippmann A-5 or a Tippmann X-7 paintball marker, and I need advice on which one I should get, and if there are any specific upgrades that are a reasonable price that would increase the accurcy, reliability, comfort of holding, etc. that I should purchase. If you don't like my choice of markers, than I would be more than happy if you could recommend a marker in a similar price range to these two markers, that has better preformance. Any help is welcome.

I want to be able to shoot .177 or .22 caliber pellets from my Co2 powered paintball gun (single shot or semi-auto, I don't care ). Is this even possible to do without costing a small fortune? If you have seen the clip on "You Tube" regarding the Castleman's Air powered .30 cal machine gun you would kind of see what I'm after in a sense. Any info. or links to the info. would be appreciated.
