what gear do you guys use when running with dual pistols? Special ops P3? Thigh mag holders? and how many mags would you run with dual pistols?
I'm still trying to figure out my best setup for that. I'm going to try two leg holsters next weekend and see if that works better for me. I like to be able to briefly holster while reloading the second. Last weekend I tried a shoulder holster and leg holster, and the shoulder holster was too difficult to quickly drop the second pistol into for reloading.
One thing I'd highly recommend is enough mag pouches to hold ALL your mags. Including the ones you plan start the game with in the pistols. Wait to pop in the mags till right before the game starts. This way in the heat and humidity the paintballs won't be under spring tension longer then necessary.
For holding the spare mags I've gone cheap and I'm actually using old 100 round pod packs that hang off a belt and open from the top. They can hold one mag loosely or two mags snugly. You can often find them cheap used.
The other benefit other then cost to using the 100round pod packs is that you can also carry a 50 or 100 tube with you for reloading the mags between games. I actually use a pistol pursuitpod (http://pursuitpods.com/) for this which also fits well in an old 100r pod pouch.
as for me Ive had 6 mags but Ive lightened the load.. 2 fs mags and 2 extended t8 mags lighter faster.. plus one10rd/12grm holder around my entire waist with 2 tiberius single mag holders very efficient
I'd rather use the quick change adapter. Should work great even on extended mags, and you can't be accused of bringing tools on the field.
It was a bad idea for Tib to make the RVA (velocity adjust) and 12g hex the same size
Why would I go through the trouble of buying the oversized wrench and sharing the info if it did work?
If I took that out and the refs didn't see me, someone's not doing their job. But anyone who cranks velocity would prob play with another gun anyway, lots of other guns that are much easier to manipulate.
Well I just bought a 8.1 yesterday, should be here on Wednesday. While I probably won't play only pistol all the time, I will occasionally, and I plan on bringing the 8.1 with FS on the field with my pump... Should be crazy fun for longballs.
I have to say, you make those extended mas look well worth the price... any luck with finding a lower leg holster for the extended mags? I would think something similar to an else ankle to knee squeege holder would be perfect.
Personally I just holster them in my singlemag slots upside down Im equipped to the bare minimum 2Pistols 2Mags 2Extended Clips 1belt with elastic swoops allll the way around 10 "9round" tubes and 10 Cartridges Light.. Fast.. and DEADLY
It's been awhile playing with pistols -- during the dark ages, I used to own two Delta .68's and that was pretty fun. That particular shooter was quite accurate at a distance, but I like to get up close and bunker my opponents. I'm happy to say that just recently, I've completely sold all of my traditional paintball gear to convert into a dedicated pistol setup. I've ordered all of the necessary rigs, pouches, tubes, cartridges, and holsters. So I'm pretty much ready and waiting for my T8.1 to be back-ordered and shipped to me,
So far, I set my gear to accommodate about five T8.1 magazines (six, but one in gun) with six 8rnd tubes and six 12gram cartridges. Hopefully that's not overkill -- but it seems to be a pretty light setup. At my local field, there are two games on one field for one round. So my idea is to use at least all six magazines during one game, and after that, I'll reload them with my 8round tubes for the next game. After the two games are over, head back to the car and load up. Sounds like a plan to me I guess you can say I'm a part of this pistol players only 'thing',
While the majority of people not need firearms, consider that this tool is now widely distributed to most of all peoples, including bad people. Such people who will do harm with one of these tools in time. So we ought to have to ability to defend ourselves against said threats with equal or greater fire power. Unfortunately, tis only law-abiding citizens are primarily being targeted by Government. Further, crime is caused by unlawful peoples of society, so how are Government orders going to now effect the criminals if the orders hadn't affected them initially? There is a hidden agenda here. Think about it
hell i just got my t9 in yesterday and after playing today i can honestly say i believe that pistol is the way to go got 3 headshots in a row after stripping it down now to just get a hold of some extended mags and a second gun
Its alot easier for me to come across open non speedballer games which is another reason I've passed up many days of play -I'm shooting for practices and pure experienced ballers I may play this weekend to keep the vids rolling for you guys its just a waste that I don't have my mac yet forfinal cut pro editing
