What was your first Marker? Do you still have it?

Just curious what people's first marker/setup was and if they still have it.

Mine was a 98 Custom Pro. Had 3 different barrels for it. Worked pretty solidly while I had it.

Just recently sold it though. I didn't need to have so many markers in my home.

First one I owned was a KP2. Unfortunately sold it for a wedding that never happened.

At-85 bought back in 1999. Something was messed up and it was a paint blender so I sold it shortly after getting it.

I bought the Brass Eagle Stingray just after its release. I'll still have it. Bringing it to play with my friends still rocking pumps made me the "heavy gunner."

First marker I ever bought was a slightly-used Brass Eagle King Cobra pump. I still have it, and even still have the 9-ounce steel "CAM" tank that came with it.

It also has some of the first-ever airsmithing I ever did, in a valiant but ultimately fruitless attempt to get it to shoot above about 220 FPS, as well as some of the first... well, 'machining' is I guess is an accurate enough term, in that I drilled some decorative divots into the pump grip, emulating a photo of a cool Bushmaster pump I'd seen in an old issue of Paintball Sports International magazine.

At this point, it hasn't been on the field in over 15 years, and hasn't even been gassed up yet this century.

But I still have it.

It was a Spyder Esprit bling to the wazooo with after market parts, not that it does the gun any good. It have a Pure Energy regulator that keep choking it to no end (but hey it match the color of the spyder), a 14" barrel that I don't remember the maker of, and a Quantum loader (we all know how well that one work).

Unfortunately I don't have it any more, lost it a while ago.

Brass Eagle Cobra bought it around 1989/90ish and yes I still have it.

That nelspot never needs lube, shoots 2,000 ball per second, never needs reloaded, doesn't require an air source and when the paintball hits somebody the result is the same as if Chuck Norris round house kicked them.
He nick named the gun Reggie.

Kingman Spyder Victor I think? I can't remember. All I know is I bought it to go paintballing, field was closed, shot it in the back yard, sold it and got into airsofting. Then I got back into paintballing later with a ND Timmy and was hooked.
