i first gun i ever saw when it came to paintball was a blade, i remember correctly that was by be. I used to get 200 round jars of paint for birthdays and what not and fired it in my backyard. It had a box hopper and i ended up holding the trigger and pumping so fast that the back plastic 12g changer split in half. Its funny now knowing what that marker ment to me when i first had it. Now i remember reading on pb review someone saying that you can throw the gun farther then it can shoot.
