I found some good deals this summer and thought I would show them off.
I picked up a near mint Tippmann Custom 98 for $30 from the local pawn shop. (Already sold)
I got this Phantom (without the dye grips) from my local pawn shop for $45.
I found this P-12 needing a new home and snagged it for $20.
And lastly, I got this Piranha LB with Battle Pump. I paid a little more for his one, but I wanted to feel how a battle pump fits me and they usually go for around $80+ so I didn't feel so bad.
So far I am happy with all of them. The P-12 leaks some air, but that should be an easy fix. I just got the P-12 and LB this week, so I am itching to get them out and play with them.
Nice finds! Everytime I go to my local pawn shops all I find is B.E. crap that they want 100.00+ for.
Same here Weltz.....you must live in SoCal Mr.Big...
Actually I live in Michigan, and the guy running the pawn shop is starting to know me by name. I now stop in at least once a week. Unfortunately, now all he has is BE and spyder crap that is way over priced. He did ask me my opinion about his prices and he dropped his Stingrays from $49.99 to $29.99 lol.
The only thing my local pawn shop's good fer is porcelain and doilies. Oh yea, let's not forget those highly sought after beeny bears.
Actually, I have a story....
I walk into the local pawn shop, walk over to the guitars, tune one up & start playing....ownerlady walks over, we chat a while, I ask if she carries paintball stuff. She says no, so I ask if anyone ever comes in trying to pawn it(wanting to have her refer them to me), she says yes, but they turn them away. Then she tells me she is looking for a pb gun, & asks if I have any...I tell her I have 1 or 12, she asks if I'm getting rid of any. I ask what she wants it for, she tells me it isn't any of my buisness, & laughs..so I laugh, & she tells me needs to 'decorate' some things. Now, I had been eying an original Dunlop Crybaby Wah-wah pedal in there, & ask if she's intrested in trading. She says yeah, but that she wants something no frills. So I go home, grab a Striker I got in a grab bag on E-Bay for $20, a VL200, & a cheap BE 12 gram changer with a few 12 grams & head back...she shoots it a few times, likes it, & I ask what she had in mind for a trade. She says, 'I'll give you the pedal & $20 for the gun, but I never got this off you, understand?' So, I took it, & I'm happy. :D
Am I a bad person?
She might be sending them to some third word country that uses them for terrorist training. J/K.
Meh, let the terrorists come over here, we'll ride the gat together, I'll wookie across the field, then play rabbit with him. :dodgy:
Wuh Tuh Fuh? :confused:
