Paintballing

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.

Good Paintball Mask?

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.

TF2 Paintball Scenario Game Help? Answered

 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

How do I fix a paintball gun ball detent (also called a ball stop)?

The ball detent on my viewloader lancer broke (the screws broke into 2 pieces, and the bottom part of the screws are stuck in the reciever).  What should I do to fix it?  I honestly don't mind if i glue it or anything,but just need it to look nice. I am not buying a new gun or parts for a ball stop. So what should I do? What materials should I use?

Has anyone ever used or repaired a SplatMaster marking pistol?

 Hello, This is a long shot but has anyone here had experience with SplatMasters? I bought two of these guns about 15 years ago, second-hand and they have never worked. They dry fire perfectly but the problem comes when I load a CO2 bottle; it leaks. Is this a known fault and can it be remedied? The bottle is punctured on the spike, as it should, then proceeds to hiss and empty immediately. There was nothing around the spike when I bought them so I tried various items ranging from inner tube to gas o-rings, until I ran out of expensive CO2 bottles. It may be possible that the gas is seeping from another part of the gun; Any ideas? Also, according to the photo with the red background I can see that every part seems to be there except a small spring and a ball detent;  Can I simply make one from a pen spring and a ball bearing? Any help appreciated as I would dearly love to have fun with these. Thank You

I am new to paintball and I can rent any paintball gun for free on my birthday. Which one should I get? Answered

 I have never played paintball and I love to snipe in video games :) but IDK if I have good accuracy in real life.  This would conserve bullets.  I also have a choice of a full-auto.  This would waste bullets and I hate "Spraying and Praying", but accuracy wouldn't matter.  I am confused!

How to modify airsoft mask? Answered

Knowing that there are many fabricators on instructables, I was wondering if anyone had any ideas how I could modify an airsoft mask to look like the picture shown. I have one where the part beneath the lenses is detachable, and I really only need to modify the lower half, but would like to make a copy of that lower half and work on the copy rather than the original part. If anyone has any ideas at all, let me know. Especially with making the copy of the lower half.
