Me? Old School?
Today was my first day at the field with the BKO that I picked up here a few weeks back. Just a stock '04 with a Revy perched on top. First of all, it shot BEAUTIFULLY. Absolutely loved playing with it.
But it was kind of funny, at least to me; I had a ton of people commenting on my cool "old school" gun. Maybe it's just that I've been playing for 13 years and pumped a majority of that, but it just seemed odd to think of an electro of any type, even a 9 year old one, as "old school". I mean, old school is pump guns, Mags, Cockers...maybe the very first Shockers and stuff like that. Heck, I'd think that anything made in 2000 or after would be too new to fall into that category.
No real point to the thread...just kind of rambling. But I guess to keep things interesting, I'll just ask what you consider to be "old school" gear.

I guess it goes by when you started playing. I think anything pre-semi-auto is old school.
It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat. - Theodore Roosevelt

i think it has to do with the amount of time you have spent playing ,when i started there were traccers,mags.vm68's,and cockers so when i think old school i think of pgps and others of that time frame ,when i play with my 68automag lots of players ask about it beacuse its not of the norm from the other guns on the field ,
''if you ever had to pump a gun to fire a shot then iam sure your old''

You damn kids and your new fangled markers. Get off my lawn!
We have nothing to fear but fear itself. Apart from pain. And maybe humiliation and obviously death. And failure. But apart from fear, pain and humiliation, failure and the unknown and death we have nothing to fear but fear itself. Who’s with me?

This is a really interesting discussion.
1. Tippmann 98 Custom (cast model name, pre-ACT, bought around 2002)
2. Tippmann 68 Carbine
3. VSC Phantom (purchased new 2012)
4. 68 Classic Automag
The only piece that is definitely not "old school" by any definition is the Mini. The only one that is absolutely "old school" by any definition is the PMI.

Probably because of a few thing like how the BKO look bulky by today standard and your revy on top doesn't help.
