    yeah i was trying to work out something in my head to maybe build one but the loading of the balls is where i kept getting held up. the rotating barrels are easy. loading AND firing a projectile is hard.

    So is there going to be like 40 people at paintball or something? Geez, I wish people would stop signing up. :p


    Seriously though, it seems like there are going to be a lot more people than last time. :(

    You can set most electronic markers to auto or set the trigger bounce as so but it is illegial.

    as speed cannot be constantly guaged on slingshots, they are illegal at most fields.

    Hope you can make it out. We'll make you the "Downed Republic Gunship Pilot"...let you fight your way out.

    only if i can bring my co-pilot along. we took on a group of 15 indy knights and wasted them all. that was my 30th birthday.

    Hey I speak for the QCJO and say We would love to take down the Indy Knights in a game of paintball..... I say bring it B*^%

    quoting south park, "you'd get served"

    the viking has a factory mode that allows for 23 balls a second, with the right equipment. add the was board and a halo2 loader and have a factory master tech set it up for full auto and you're set... but at 23 balls a second, most loaders are empty before the fun really begins.

    Just a question for the guys who are in charge of this event:

    The BlastCamp website hasn't been up in many days and the 17th is drawing-ever-nearer. If I don't get the permission thing from the website to have my parents sign, I can't play.


    Any suggestions? Do you think I can call Blastcamp or something and have them mail me one? (What's their number?) Does anyone have any extras?

    I'm gettin' kind of worried. :-\

    most paintball fields require a guardian or parent to sign. the waiver is usually online. a guardian can be appointed by the parent in the instances where the parent does not make the trip. the field usually needs a letter stating that the person is the temporary guardian of the child.

    "most paintball fields require a guardian or parent to sign. the waiver is usually online. a guardian can be appointed by the parent in the instances where the parent does not make the trip."

    (1) That's the point.
    (2) The website is down, that's the problem.
    (3) It would be much easier to get the waiver and have my parents sign it than write a letter and have someone else take responsibility for me.

    The trunk, Peaches? With goat the best I'd expect is a few bungy cords and the roof.



    Oh, and thanks a lot Matt. I was about to go call BlastCamp now but decided to check this thread and their site before I did. Now I don't have to... Thanks!
