Mad Science of Paintball
Join Date: Jul 2011
I remember the first time a guy carried- and answered- an old Motorola "brick" phone, on the field and under fire.

New players will never experience...
I did the same.
I second the Diablo Skul mask. Had the thermal version and it worked great. Still have it but donít use it as I donít trust the now almost 15yr old lens.
Websites and people
pgpog.com and kampfer
Stockclasspaintball.com which sent me over to the old mcb in search of pumps and parts.
The old geocities sterling faq.
Tyger and webdogradio.com . I think I found it around season 2 I know for sure I found it before he started the FPS vids. Learned a lot about playing from his vids.
Ordering a sweet flame pattern pgp barrel bag from Sam Hartley. Wish I had kept it when I sold my pgps years ago as I have a pmi1 now. The pps bag just doesnít have the same level of coolness.
I remember 1000psi pay formats. Which honestly would be cheaper for me than all day air most of the time since I donít shoot that much.
Armotech guns on the field.
On the topic of 20Ē plus barrels. I think those are alive and well in the magfed community with the dmr and sniper builds.

I feel like it's been mentioned already, but Spec-Ops Paintball had those amazing animated tutorial videos, as well as all the really cool modded markers. I'm always looking for old spec ops stuff.

They will miss having a butt load of retailers to choose from when purchasing equipment, both brick and mortar, and online.
They will miss having a butt load of accessory manufacturers and really just more companies making equipment in general.
In late 90's early 2000's you could hardly keep track of all the random shops pumping our gear of one kind or another, and there were a ton of independent online full service retailers selling the stuff.
They will miss not being able to afford an electro.

I miss Sam and Shartley Customs (kind of a funny name looking back). I still rock one of his sandana copies in leopard print, that thing has been rocking for like 15 years now and I still have one of his custom jerseys.
Man you hit all the high points. PGPOG was the place to be with all the custom PGP's. Ironically they all still shot horribly but damn they looked good. I'll add one here:
Calling Cooper-T and getting the owner (I forget his name but I'm pouring one out to his memory) on the phone to order those beautiful red anno'd parts directly.
Sending money order payments to random people on the internet, or better yet just cash in an envelope. God bless paypal.
Buying a CCM gun for $320 (Series 5)
Buying a full custom acid wash phantom for $240
Seeing P68sc's on IIsports for $90 new in box
Seeing Sheridan still in business and selling guns at the local grocery store before they became Game Face
Actually being able to buy paintball stuff at most big box stores. Hard to believe that you can't buy paintballs or anything except from the local field.

Corpses Eaten: 0
The day I tried to live
I wallowed in the blood and mud with All the other pigs
Singing One more time around
Might do it
One more time around
Might make it
RIP Mr. Cornell. thank you.
