Half the people seem to have never heard of an autococker, let alone see one in action. All I see are ions, minis and tippman stuff that looks like an m16.
I quit (well played about once a year for the last 4 years) so I could buy Jeep parts and cars. Now I have a decent job to where I can afford both
All of my markers are outdated by atleast 5 or so years too. Technology today is basically all the same, except maybe the marker is a little lighter and more efficent. If you have any marker that shoots 12.5 bps you can play in just about any league/tournament. People today also don't want to fool around with a marker where you actually need to time and adjust it, they prefer turn on and go.
Also nothing compares to a sweet shooting autococker, the sound is just awesome.
