Thanks for the kind words Mr, Smith... That particular pistol Is gaining Quite the Provenance.
Having handled that marker. I don't feel it's ready to be hung up quite yet...

It is already heavily modified, the highlights of which are the 10rnd tube speed feed in the top, and i thought that the 12gram knob unlocked the 12gram awfully fast, and of course there is Agent Smith "magic" in the barrel -( If you have to ask or troll about it you are only worthy of being on the receiving end of it. *FINAL*) Mr. Smith you are the project aficionado..I have no doubt that the final revision for this marker that has ruined so many players well thought out strategies on the field will be in a class of it's own.

So says the best lead reindeer any Santa ever had! I count myself one lucky son to live within range of Hell Survivors and the truly great family there.

I took a pic to show the idea but I can't load it off my phone, got it as far as facebook! I'm rolling around Pennsylvania, going to the Pointer national field trial and hunting test, then slipping away for a bit of trout fishing near Bethlehem.
I'm heading home thurs so I'll put up pics pronto then!
I'm laughing at myself over the final kit. It's all I can do not to dress up like a giddy school girl. Fully rocking 2 pistols, 24-30 mags and as or more comfortable than street clothes.

Thanks Buddy!

I'll take some more off the back of the Magwell, it's front will be flush with the front of the g2. The direct stabilizer will screw right into a modded pierce block.
The bottom will have a thumb button at the muzzle.

I'll pinewood derby the back half of the grip full of lead if TrueBlue requests it.

I'm starting to understand an old taoist story alot better. The balance of a pistol doesn't even occur to me any more. Grip size, barrel length, mags, tubes, cylinders, none of it matters. Which hand it's in, recoil, upside down or not.
These are all factors that I now barely even perceive and certainly none of them make enough difference in my shooting to really affect my own chances of success.
I don't think of them any more than I do the alphabet while I'm talking.
Even with firearms I can shoot a 20yd touching group with 6 different pistols while switching hands every shot.
When I see a pistol I see it through a cloud of capabilities, strengths and weaknesses. Like a guitarist looking at a new instrument or a golfer shaking a new driver.


That's what all my recent experimentation in outlaw ball with the TiPX, testing 10rd mags and rechargeable co2 has reminded me.
Yes, these things work as advertised but on the particular path I'm taking, they're just a waste of time.
I can tell right now, that down the road, somewhere in the future, they would get me shot and get me less shots on other folks.

That being said I still agree with my Grandpa that Life is too short to hunt with an ugly dog.

I personally love my Son-Done TiPXs. Could I play as well with some other pistols? Yes, within reason.
Would I? NO!

So I would never ask anyone else to hunt with a dog THEY thought was ugly!
She'll be complete when TrueBlue sez so!

I'm trying to figure out my role in this?

"Fidget you'll have to borrow it from TrueBlue! I'm going to give her a mod so horrifying I shudder to type it.... the one thing that could turn my little baby into a slavering war machine with blood in her eyes, gore on her claws and veins in her teeth! TrueBlue's the guy to carry her. Whether he decides to pass her along after that is up to him, I have faith in his judgement.

I have an underbarrel mounted magazine well for the umarex mags that are like a T8 mag, but with 2 12grams together with a check valve. I'll put this on TrueBlue's new G2, piped to a Palmer Direct stabilizer I'll plant in the co2 well.

60 regulated shots through fully honed hotness before a co2 magazine change.

Co2 mags are $20.

To paraphrase the movies THERE WILL BE BLOODredfill.

Rob


Now I get it, I just had to read back a bit.

I feel honored, and have no problem dumping the vast amount of tubes I carry on my zeus vest. Global Conquest 2k13 will take on a whole new meaning. Plus with my work in progress video setup, I hope I can live up to it. Practice run comes this weekend at Return of the King at Center Lake.

I know you two will get along! I've run beside you enough to know you'll more than do her justice!

I shot around some sunday, I have 3 10rd tubes!!!

I knew I had one for a ball sizer. Found 2 more...
It still purrs like a kitten.

I'll be rocking the Zeus and the TPX at Center Lake this weekend. And maybe a little pump as well.
