1337 is "leet" speak. Leet (also known as L337 or L33t or 1337, or Leet-Speak... etc) A language commonly used in chat rooms where letters are replaced by numbers and symbols, and words are commonly mispelled.

i.e. the above sentence in "leet" is:

4 |4n6u463 (0mm0n|y u53d 1n (h47 r00m5 wh3r3 |3773r5 4r3 r3p|4(3d 8y num83r5 4nd 5ym80|5, 4nd w0rd5 4r3 (0mm0n|y m15p3||3d.

"Agg" is agro or "cool." i.e. "My pink day-glo ramping space-gun is sooo agg!"

It's just hacker/PbN crap.

1337 or leet means superior or greatness ect. Agg is some old cali. term that skaters used and such meaning aggressive. Could go into detail, but you get the idea. But while where on the subject, since u posted that link, i checked pbnation out. Not much has changed since ive seen it, maybe a little less intelligence. The ignorance of some folks never cease's to amaze me.

"1337" is 'leet talk' for leet; 1=L 3=E 7=T
Short for elite, also known as, really frakin dumb.

Now, agg, thats another thing, i have been told it is short for 'aggressive' and horrible misconstrued to mean 'cool' by pre-purbescent nerds and dip-wads.

Oops, didnt realize 8 other people posted before me...

I figured I'd post this question here, since it's closely related to the original topic.

I've heard that the newer 'cockers don't handle unregulated CO2 well. Something to do with the valve/spring setup. Is there any truth to that at all?

The reason I ask is I'm planning on getting an autococker/sniper for my oldest daughter. She's going to start playing next season. I want to start her off with a pump first so she can concentrate how to move rather than how fast she can shoot. And I'm thinking that it would be better to just use a marker that can be upgraded as she grows.

I just got a 3.5 oz tank and want to be able to just put that directly into the vertical ASA to keep the marker a bit lighter for her. So I need to know if I'd have to do anything to allow the tank to be directly on there. Especially when the pneumatics get put back on for her when she's ready to play semi.

Thanks.

Yes, that is true. On a newer cocker with the larger valve chamber and valve designed and sprung to run on lower pressure you can't run unregged CO2. The higher pressure will keep the valve held closed too much, and you won't be able to achieve decent velocity no matter how much you turn the adjuster in.

The problem can be remedied either by regulating the pressure down (which pretty much kills the idea of running a vertical 3.5oz) or by putting in an older (pre 2k) valve and springs. I haven't experimented with putting a devolumizer in the chamber, but that may also help if you're stuck using the newer LP valve.

So if I understand you correctly, the CO2 would need to be regulated even using a 2K+ as a Sniper. Unless of course the older valve or de-volumizer will work.

Thanks, that helps a lot!
