nostalgia is one reason . . . besides, to use one of your examples, anyone can order themselves up a new phantom but guess what? Line SI hasn't existed in some time and regardless of actual performance that makes those Bushmasters - which in their day were top flight - desirable to some people. Its like cars . . . sure, you can get yourself a brand new mustang and have a nice pony car . . . or you can get an old Plymouth Duster. With the Duster you have the negatives of the tech being maybe or greatly outdated, parts scarcity, etc. - but you also have the cachet of a now uncommon vehicle from a defunct brand, carrying with it an interesting history and a perspective on times past and the progress of the hobby
just my $0.02 . . . as for me, I play with a lot of old paintguns because, well, I bought them new and just hung onto them. heh, the last time I played I spent most of the day using a old Carter Comp (yep, rollouts were not uncommon for me) and a VM68, and I had a fantastic time. Would a modern new gee whiz has all the bangles and bobbles CCM pump and some manner of modern semi been better? some might argue that - but in regards to my enjoyment level I really had a ton of fun with my old paintguns
*edited* I was thinking of my old Dart while wanting to cite the Duster, because of how it fit the comparison I was trying to make - and in my haste jumbled my brands slightly. DOH

There I was sword in hand!
A book has moving parts. They're called pages.
Also, breast pumps are easy to operate in the Badonkadonk
Whee McGee: I would appreciate the opportunity to volunteer my presence in participation of the social gathering to which these message boards allude to. In the unfortunate happenstance wherein my occupancy cannot be ascertainable, it would be calamitous yet expedient to withdraw said inclusion to the festivities. While I am incapable of presenting consummate intent, I am wholeheartedly ardent to follow through in my resolution to partake, perform, and play paintball with all you dudes...
Paintball is my hobby . . . not a job . . . if it is to be a means to an end then that end is my happiness. The fun of the action, the silliness of play, the camaraderie of friends.
