A few fields around here have old west "towns". Occasionally I'll dress up mexican bandito style even if it doesn't fit the theme.

Let me know when you do. Usually I can get a good amount of people to attend. Unless you only want your set group to go. Then I could get like 2 of my guys to go.

It is however an hour north of where I live and probably where you live too.

I find the venerable Splatmaster to be an excellent paintball equivalent of the classic Colt SAA . . . heck, the really early Splatties even click 4 times when you cock them

no need to have expensive, crazy custom rigs - and yes, they are super fun and amazing, so knock yourself out if you must - if you want to play Wild West style on the cheap then get yourself a brace of Splatmasters. Heck, even the action of cocking them is highly reminiscent of shooting a charcoal burning caplock revolver. And the whole idea of carrying multiple handguns is that the fastest reload is a 2nd gun . . . yes, not as stylish as charging down field with a gun in each hand - but a whole lot more practical

oh, and my tidbit for Splatmaster use - in my experience they shoot paint like Ultra Evil (and equivalent modern brittle paint) pretty damn well. The way the whole 'bolt' is put together on them makes it one big diffuser for the gas, and since the barrel slams back past the paintball I think it is easier on the paint also. Plus, you have to give the Splatty props - they were the first paintgun with a detent to prevent double feeding. So load them up with Ultra Evil and don't fret about shooting at 240fps - the paint will break when it hits someone!

just my $0.02, inflation adjusted.

I wanted a Western themed game with pumps at least and other such themed markers like the DSG and DRV but soon thought nobody if anybody would go because they couldn't use their space aged tournament marker...I can always dream...:/

The PGP isn't a "revolver" and neither one is a production gun. We won't see anything like a large-scale "western" trend like the OP hints at, until somebody comes out with more-or-less mass produced lever actions and revolvers (or at least holsterable multi-shot pistols that look more like a revolver than a tacticool-black CQB gun.)

Until then, we'll just have, at best, a small handful of widely-scattered players with homebrew levers and sixgun-stand-ins.
