And the key to that, is being able to put balls on target, when you have to quickly get an elimination.

I never have to worry about my Tippmann A-5 not firing. Every time I pull the trigger it works. (unless I forgot to turn on my remote line... but, that isn't my markers fault! Lol).

I have zero desire to spend money on the latest and greatest out there. And I never feel "overpowered" by someone shooting streams of paint at me. I just take my shot (semi auto) and move on. I get them, or they get me. It wasn't their markers "perceived value" that got me out... It was the players skill.

Some of us CHOOSE to play with Tippmanns because they are made in the USA, and WORK really well. That doesn't make us "less" serious about paintball. It may mean we just don't want to spend our time working on our markers...
<LIKE>



I pretty much run along the lines that if it is not brass, then it is a Tippmann that I shoot...the only exception to that rule is going to be the H7 shortly...But I suspect that I will still resort to my PMI for pump play more often than not.

Otherwise it is my Phenom or TPX. All the while one of my buddies I play regularly with is tweaking his marker or calling himself out because his electronics are out of whack...I simply smirk and remind him "Mechanical for the win!!"

Please don't count me among the prejudiced. I love my Tippmanns. The only parts I've had to replace are detents, and even those last for years. Oh, and a couple parts that were missing when I got the Carbine.

Thank you kindly. Was going to mention, but will now merely refrain, that there should be no shame in using an older Tippmann (or newer), for most kinds of rec play, outlaw or no.

I own 6 Tippmanns but never owned a 98, that seems strange now thinking of it lol

That nelspot never needs lube, shoots 2,000 ball per second, never needs reloaded, doesn't require an air source and when the paintball hits somebody the result is the same as if Chuck Norris round house kicked them.
He nick named the gun Reggie.

Every time a player "upgrades" to a different marker, they have to learn how that particular marker shoots. And that learning curve hurts their progression.

I see guys that switch markers often, and all they are doing is messing up their muscle memory. Which is one of the reasons I use the same gun I started with... As progression is reduced every time you switch gear to something "better".

Well I get the same number of eliminations no matter what I pick up but I'm a God amongst men, speak for yourself.

Tippmann clearly.

The neighbor's dog and the stop sign at the end of the street don't count as eliminations.

Tippmann, hands down.

I don't look down on Tippmanns or their owners. 2 of the 5 guns I've bought new have been Tippmanns. I however, don't like Tippmanns for my style of play. Too long, not efficient, not Cocker threaded, and take awhile to field strip (on the off chance you have to do it since they are reliable).

If all I played was Outlaw or someplace without HPA fills, I'd rock a Carver One on a 20oz CO2 and have a party.

Nothing wrong with Tippman's or people who use them. My buddy has got me plenty of times with his a5. I just give em a hard time because I have never owned one, shoot, I have never even played a game with one. My friends all gave me crap because they all shoot em and I don't. My first gun (after the BE) was a spyder. After that a cocker and that is where I found love. The gun you use the most is your most accurate gun, I just keep getting better now that I have settled in on my go to.
