From what I gather in the past year, it is either the mannequin for instant chicks or he needs a supply of liquored up chicks for them to become bikini clad.

Then again, doesn't he always have a supply of liquor? Man this economy must have him down real bad.

(yes that is a joke)

At least it is good to see that in the overall looks of it (for one test) it is not really that big of a deal. Just aim higher for the long balls.

I can volunteer for the liquored up chick. Gimme a skirt and some pig tails, and the liquor, and I'll model for you Carter.

Only problem is that in our last test we found that the 50 cal paint did not break at 100 feet.So aiming higher would make the paintballs go a little further but they run out of energy to break.

good start Carter.

couple of things. You need to be careful with applying too much math to such a small sample, it tends to get too easy to find patterns when there aren't actually any.

What condition was your .68 paint?

The paint was bad... Just ordered some fresh from the factory stuff for accuracy testing...
This wasn't a big sample as we just wanted to prove that yes, the math is correct and 68 will travel further.

Mostly because people were specifically asking why this chart...

specs_Impulse_A.gif

With those trajectories, didn't match ours.
So, we wanted to do a real world test to show that YES, 68 will travel further.

..


I've done some thinking on that chart and ran some numbers.

Now, at a short distance, if a .50 cal is traveling 300 fps, and a .68 is traveling 280 fps, the .50 caliber ball WILL look like the chart they posted for 50 feet but then they will cross paths as the 50's energy is lost and it just drops to the floor long before the 68 will.

Only thing I can figure.
