FAQ's and other goodies

What is uping? = threads in forums are at the top of the list, by recent posts in the thread. People who sell, trade or whatever up their thread to keep it at the top so more people can see it without having to search to the 89 page. You are only alowed 1 up in ur b/s/t thread per day.

What is walking, and how can I be faster? = When you have a double finger trigger on your marker, walking is simply moving both your index and middle finger to pull the trigger and to achieve higher rates of fire. When you want to increase your speed by walking a few simple and common ways to do so. Use your marker, remove all air, hopper, and paint from the marker and sit on your cough when walking tv, or wtv and walk, try to do so for a minuet straight and keep it consistant, at school, take you pencil and hold it however you are comfortble and walk on the end of it against a table, a tapping noise can be annoying so you can do it midair as well. Put a rubder band around your fingers and try walking this builds endurence. (not much muscel, considering you have tendons that move your fingers.) And lastly, get a girlfriend. (me being funny )

what marker should i get ? = research yourself.. www.google.com, or here on the nation, then after you look at some names ect, go to www.pbreveiw.com look up how people like the marker you are looking at.


how much is the gun worth?= http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=1836837


how do i tell if my tank is hp or lp?= your reg is what allows the air out of the tank at a certain psi.. depending on your marker you ussaly do not need lp, unless you are shooting a angel, dm/pm, shockers(personal reffernce runs on both) ect.. if u need to ask i guerrentee its high preasure, if your marker is compatible with co2 you use hp.. the differnce between hp and lp is the output preassure from the reg, lp is 300 psi and lower, hp is 400 psi and higher.



what techniques should i have??= http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=1693330



what are bunkers, and what is bunkering?=
first off theses are bunkers http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?p=22894057
and bunkering is when at close range another player on the opposing team runs to your bunker shoots a lot, and ussaly hits you a few times.


what are the rules?= http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=14018


what is ramping?= a mode in electronic markers a mode where when you shoot a certain amount of bps, the gun will shoot faster than you are shooting. example. (psp ramping, when you shoot 5 bps or faster the gun will shoot 15 bps untill the 5 bps is not acheived.)

what is goldwave?= Goldwave is a computer program that allows you to accuratly find out bps you are shooting. You record a clip of you shooting, pull out a 1 second section, then count the spikes.(the spikes are the indvidual shots fired) You do need the program, which can be found at Best Buy and some other places.

Most people that come in here and make rule-breaking threads or ask questions answered specifically in the stickies don't do any research, and would proceed to make a thread for every question they can dream up even if the answer was written in bold and flashed in the middle of their screen. When linked to the answer they are looking for, they opt not to click it and continue to press for an answer. When they get an answer they don't want to hear, they make personal attacks and use profanity.

You can't force a stubborn 11 year-old to do research before posting. That's just the reality of the situation. If you put a list of stickies up and force them to view it for a given timeframe before they are allowed to post, they just minimize the browser and play a game. I'd love to end the useless threads, but you just can't do it in a practical manner.

I wish everyone shared your attitude, because right now, they don't. New members coming in and posting rule-violating/thoughtless threads is a lot like a little kid raising his hand in class - He wants to bring something up, and his mind shuts down while his hand is raised.

very true, and its todays paintball comunity that gives the sport a bad name, kids shooting out of cars ect.. i heard a story were a homeless man had been shot with a paintball marker and he thought he had been shot by a real firearm, he died of a heartattack.. kids today need to think, they give us a bad name, by posting negitvly other users are discoaraged... ect.. and to be honest, alot could be solved by the idea of the video, users would post in the right areas and over half the e fights, cussing ect would go down. imo
