Me? Old School?
Today was my first day at the field with the BKO that I picked up here a few weeks back. Just a stock '04 with a Revy perched on top. First of all, it shot BEAUTIFULLY. Absolutely loved playing with it.

But it was kind of funny, at least to me; I had a ton of people commenting on my cool "old school" gun. Maybe it's just that I've been playing for 13 years and pumped a majority of that, but it just seemed odd to think of an electro of any type, even a 9 year old one, as "old school". I mean, old school is pump guns, Mags, Cockers...maybe the very first Shockers and stuff like that. Heck, I'd think that anything made in 2000 or after would be too new to fall into that category.

No real point to the thread...just kind of rambling. But I guess to keep things interesting, I'll just ask what you consider to be "old school" gear.

I guess it goes by when you started playing. I think anything pre-semi-auto is old school.

I've gotten that when toting a Rainmaker. Old school= Sheridans, Nelsons, early mechs in my mind.

Agg Old School: having an electro more than 2 years old:ROTFL:

i think it has to do with the amount of time you have spent playing ,when i started there were traccers,mags.vm68's,and cockers so when i think old school i think of pgps and others of that time frame ,when i play with my 68automag lots of players ask about it beacuse its not of the norm from the other guns on the field ,

''if you ever had to pump a gun to fire a shot then iam sure your old''

You damn kids and your new fangled markers. Get off my lawn!

This is a really interesting discussion.

My collection:
1. Tippmann 98 Custom (cast model name, pre-ACT, bought around 2002)
2. Tippmann 68 Carbine
3. VSC Phantom (purchased new 2012)
4. 68 Classic Automag
5. Mini
6. PMI-1DF

The only piece that is definitely not "old school" by any definition is the Mini. The only one that is absolutely "old school" by any definition is the PMI.

When reffing, I overheard a regular tell another player that his 2010 PMR is "old school." WoodViper and I had a good laugh over that one :p

The gun is pushing 10 years old. It's not exactly what I would call new.

Probably because of a few thing like how the BKO look bulky by today standard and your revy on top doesn't help.
