Hello everyone! I'm a bit new to the wonderful sport of paintball,
and I have a great number of questions that I'd like to ask!
Where are you? (ie: what country/city)
...my friend is lending me a "Storm" by Pneumatic Design. Is this a
good, accurate, reliable gun? I'm going to be putting a J&J chromed,
ported, rifled 16inch barrel on it. Just how accurate would it be after
that modification? I'm thinking of getting a sight. I can get a good
deal on an "IMP" reflex sight. Any comments on that particular model?
Has anyone out there used Sniperballs? Are they really accurate at long
range, or would that J&J barrel above make regular paint as accurate as
Locally, in Ottawa Ontario, Canada, I can get paint at 7/ball. (Canadian
funds) Is that OK? (Zap, RP Scherer, Stinger...same cost)
I realize that I'm new to this sport, and I don't want to alienate anyone,
but I have a real beef with people that say "liquid CO2" freezes their gun.
CO2, also called dry ice, is a substance that sublimates. This means that
it goes directly from Solid to Gas, and Gas to Solid with no liquid phase.
Technically, what you see when you fire your gun is solid CO2 mist being
blown out of the barrel. Why do you suppose that this industry(painball)
has errouneously taken to calling CO2 a "liquid"? (OK, so that's a dumb
...my biggest desire in a paintball gun is accuracy. I enjoy using my
friend's Storm, but I find that paintballs tend to fly a bit screwy at
long ranges, usually anything over 25meters. i'd like extreme accuracy at
a range of 50 meters. Do you thing that with a new chrome barrel (rifled &
ported) I'd get the accuracy that I want?
Sorry to ramble, but Internet just seems like a wonderful place to glean
info on this challenging sport!
