Again, I am asking this in total seriousness and not trying to start a flame war (although maybe asking a question like the one above on MCB is just that). To be fair, I would cherish an x-mag or something by AKA over any new electro that the pros are using, and the agglets on "the site that must not be named" would never understand.

Trusting in the patience and maturity of my fellow MCBer's,

It really is something you need to hold in your own hands to understand. Most markers will shoot the same, as far as distance is concerned. You are mainly paying for the time and skill it takes to make one. All Desert Ducks, Redux's are hand made. The Kamikaze Shooter DD68, AKA the Desert Duck was created by Dave Loo, who is sadly no longer with us. Mr. Carter carries on the creation of the Duck, but will only make one if you ask, and make sure your wallet is lighter to boot. Steve Brett, known to most as Mongo, out of his love of the Desert Duck has spent a lot of time, energy, and money to rework it and create the Redux.

And besides you look like a bad *** on the field with one in your hands

At first it was about the look, you see back in paintballs infancy everyone wanted their marker to look real. The DD68 not only looked the part it felt the part too. Nowadays its about "that retro" look but importantly its about loving sc and pump play. After owning and playing with mine I wont go back. I break out the TM 7 for giggles and payback but for the most part its just more exciting to stalk some one with only one ball in the pipe.

Its like driving a Mini Cooper S and loving it for years and all of the sudden you hop into a Challenger and can now never go back to a 4cyl no matter how fast or quick it was. Retro baby!

My buddy PB Weasel still owns R018. And it's his primary.

THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...
