Yeah, and I bet you would flame everyone else for having bought some other $500 gun. This thread is for people that own epics, glad you can read.
I have owned a slew of electro's and finally got tired of always feeling like I had to purchase the next best upgrade in order to compete with everyone else's 50bps gun. Its a characteristic of paintball that I hate, so I knew I needed something else.
I finally gave in and bought an epic, something that will never need an upgrade, never break down, does not need batteries, can be used in all playing conditions, and can shoot fast enough.
Sure, it doesn't shoot 25 bps, but frankly I could care less. I'm happy that I'm not stuck in the gun loop like the majority of other players.
I paid for something unique, simple, and efficient, and thats exactly what I got. My purchase decision was a heck of a lot more honorable than any 25bps gun toting prepubescent can say about anything they have ever bought.
