that BIN price is wishful thinking.

i had one when back in the day and they are a POS. i don't know why the goggles come with it unless they are for looking down the barrel after you pull the trigger and nothing comes out.

Its a common misconception. Lots of Gotcha guns have claimed to be the first paintball gun, simply because back in the 80s, paintball was a bit secretive, and generally a game for middle-age types.

The Gotcha-gun toy was the first main-stream paintball-like item that many kids saw, giving the impression that it was first.

And... it was what it was. Its not fair to call it crap, since thats relative to actual paintball gear. it was not paintball.

It would "spit" a tiny glob of paint, about as far as... well, you could spit. A very safe twist on the idea of paintball. Not a bad idea when you consider many fields at the time did not allow minors.

Also, when you win it, replace the main spring with a stretched one, or shim the spring, disable the grip safety (remove it, or cut off the tab that blocks the trigger, if you want that sleeper look), that thing sucked. Make sure to soak the hell out of the cartridges, way longer than they say, and use water just under boiling. Do all that, and you'll be able to hit something a little over 5 feet away, if you have a tailwind.

I miss my gotcha gun. Got me started playing paintball.
