What was your first, "OMG that's awesome" marker you shot?

Thought this would be a fun thread... What was the first gun you ever shot that made your jaw drop? Mine was a heavy *** autococker when we all still believed they were more accurate. Just couldn't get over that awesome back block. That gun single handedly started my never ending gun upgrading addiction.

I'd say it was the same for me. There was just something so cool about all the actuating parts. I'd sometimes air up my autococker, and just actuate the trigger.
Current markers: WGP Karnivor Sniper, Redux R023 Gloss Black, Inception Designs Kryptonite Razor Sniper.

Project: 32 Degrees "Freeflow" Prococker Sniper.

First time I saw a Karni I literally stopped what I was doing to watch the BB fly. Kid bumped in, shot 10-15 shots and bumped again. Bliss.

First time I shot a Tippmann Factory F/A after it was all working and shooting the proper paint. Just hold the trigger and she goes forever.

ATS-85. That thing just sounded like such a beast with all the mechanical clanking and booming report.

I never owned one, but I remember the exact moment a teammate let me shoot his, back in '87. It absolutely blew my mind.

People forget what a massive technology gap existed in the 80s. 90% of the guns were what we would call "stock class" today. No hopper, 12grams, etc. pgps, 007s, splats.

and the SMG-60. Not even semi-auto, but full auto. and with constant air, accurate and bullet proof construction. They were a terror on the fields, and I was petrified of them.

Looking back... I have a different opinion. They were primitive, with small capacity, short range, hard to load, etc. Easily beat by a "modern" pumps of the era (phantoms, snipers, bushies). Plus, they ended up getting banned everywhere. But damn, back almost 30 years ago, they blew my mind

Tipx. I put about 10 mags through my first one and after that I had enough muscle memory to hit anything I wanted anywhere I wanted. Though I have tried a few other things I have always gone back to it. That first time i shot it couldn't believe a pistol could do that still sticks in my mind.

First time I shot a Super Stocker. Friend loaned it to me for a game, I shot what I thought was a hail mary shot, connected, and then proceeded to "Did you see that?" the rest of the game. My brother had it on film.
