Inspiration is being inspired in me.
That being said, if you call yourself out on a bounce shot (knowing it was skill that hit you and "luck" that saved you) , you may qualify for sainthood

I have a book from '85 that has pics showing thermo tanks set up that way under the grip using hose clamps.

Just read this. Wonder if this guy could shed some more light on this. Either way DIGGIN the aesthetics of all these.

I recall seeing a magazine photo of Team Grizwald (I think, like 24 - 26 years ago) with a bunch of markers, stock class obviously, set up this way. Stock class required horizontal feeding, of course, and a bucket changer that fully removed from the marker with at least one full term as well. No aids. This prevented the use of six packs, turret, pump, and lever changers.
Vertical asas aren't common on really any Nelson valve guns from the era. Thus, the best way to set up your marker for a fast reload, especially without taking your marker off of the target (maybe sneak a check valve in too, ) or making yourself a bigger profile, was to put a bottom line on backwards with the bucket changer in front. Attach a simple line to the valve asa with a reducer and you're done. Reloads are faster with a simple hands find hands technique like you use with regular handguns.
It did offer some arguable performance advantages and was even compatible with running a stock.

I've run a couple markers this way. Here's an old one I always regretted selling:
As Diomedes has noted, when running these in a small configuration, the balance is amazing.
Not for everyone, but I've spent a lot of time running these and if you can get used to them, you can send a lot of souls to the deadbox. Diomedes sure has.

This is a pic of my Spyder Cup 2k1 team on the breakout. My buddy Steve was rocking Hawaiian Style that year.

Iím not getting how this setup could be balanced? Isnít all that tank weight tipping the paintgun forward?

it balances over the FRONT grip. which when on a smaller set up, like a pump gun with a 13 or something similar can feel really good. i think that is the most appealing use of this set up, since your hand has to already be up there anyway. but thats jmo
