I got a paintball gun as a gift the other day and wanted to know some things
1. The gun has an on and off switch so it electric. Will co2 tanks ruin the gun?
2. What should i wear since I don't want to get hurt to bad.
+k to any helpful answers
What's the name of the gun? most likely co2 will not ruin it. Only HIGH end guns run only on compressed air, like $500and above, not all but most. If you're playing in the woods just some jeans and a teeshirt. It will sting at first but it goes away pretty quick.
exactly. I'm guessing you were given a mechanical gun with e-frame, your gun still operates mechanically tho. CO2 is the cheapest solution if you just want to have fun, it gives you more shots out of a fill and your tank can be filled everywhere, not every place has an air compressor. On the downside it'll give you less FPS consistency, meaning the speed will vary from one shot to the other, but you don't care unless youre going pro!
noooooo. Do not use C02. with electros C02 is hit and miss some models such as the SM Ion can run it. Higher end guns such ad DMs Egos etc can not! When in the bottles C02 is a liquid and liquids and electronic solinoids dont mix, especially super cooled liquids. Spghettis right though try googleing it. And as for what to wear the more layers the less pain, but the sweatier youll be. Once youve been shot a zillion times it dont hurt much anymore youll get over it.
Yupp, air would be a waste of money for you. One thing I will mention is after you play CLEAN YOUR GUN. Your gun can get really dirty after playing just once and letting a dirty gun sit will only break it. If you have anymore questions feel free to PM me or ask HandGesture, he knows what he's talking about.
Don't listen to most of the stuff posted here. It's not that informed. It all depends on the make of your gun. Some guns must be ran on nitro and not co2, as nitro is a gas and co2 gets converted from liquid to gas once it enters your gun (which is why the co2 tank gets really cold when you use it). Google yur gun, and you will probably see whatnot should be ran on if it's a paintball shopping site.
2. Wear pants, and a light and breathable jacket. It hurts as much as someone just giving you a light punch on the arm. Just man up.
Long sleeve shirt and some jeans, nothing bright so you won't stick out. Darker woods colors are prime. Camo is also good but can be overkill. Just wear what you think is comfortable, and trust me paintballs don't hurt that bad.
You just came in here and said the information wasn't too informed? Did you read the information given? It's all pretty accurate, and we already know what the make of his gun is and have already established that he can run Co2.
