What barrel are you using? I'm thinking of getting a J&J because the current accuracy of the stock barrel is driving me nuts.

First day rocking the TiPX!

I have been working on my left hand with the pistol... that way I can use my "rifle" in my right hand, AND the TiPX in my left!

Played one game today dual wielding like that, worked out well...

I heard the stock X-7 barrel was a good addition...so I picked one up for $20... same threading, adds an extra 2 inches to the barrel length... did very well today! @ 50 feet I hit 5/7 shots in the target range (target was size of dinner plate)... and that was one-handing it using my left hand (i'm right handed)!

I was seriously thinking of the First strike mod,but after play today, I only used the Pistol sparingly, and only when I got to close quarters combat (village type building to building fighting).

Given its already stellar accuracy at 50-80 feet, I think I might actually skip the First strike mod! I'm not going to use the TiPX as my main marker, so I'm not worried about the extra distance of the FS round... and I'd rather shoot more clips of regular paintballs than shell out the $ for FS rounds...

Not enough... that's why I went with the TiPX

Extended clips would have sold me on the 8.1 though...

Yesterday I had the perfect pistol story.


I took my girlfriend out to play for her first time. Later in the day, we arrive on-field (Defending a tower) and the game starts when she realizes she didn't re-fill her nitro tank...

Being the gentlemen I am, of course I gave her the nitro tank off of my Autococker (she didn't want to use my gun because of it's weight...).

That left me with the TiPX and 4 full clips...

I directed my girlfriend to hold a position next to me in the middle/left while I took a position on our left flank, where I had seen the other team's 2 experienced players headed.

I positioned myself in a line of fire I knew they would have to cross to advance.

I waited, Pistol aimed at my pre-determined firing point.

First guy came into sight, I took him out with 2-3 shots on his move.

Second guy now knew where both me and my girlfriend were. He was rockin' a super-electro and had about a case of paint on him... along with a well defended position.

I popped out and fired a few times [from different angles in my bunker] to give him new areas of fire to be concerned about. My girlfriend fired a few shots, and suddenly was under heavy repeated fire for what felt like 15-20 seconds. I motioned for her to stay down while I changed to a fresh mag...

I popped out, aiming at his bunker... nothing. I held my aim in a crouched position, focusing on breathing... holding that aim....

My shot was fired as soon as I saw movement...

A hand went up in the air, "Hit!".

I hit him directly center in the face.

He was not happy about the fact that he was shot out by a pistol.


Later in the day, as I was walking up to the pre-game gathering, I heard him bragging to refs and rentals about how he was only "shot out once today!".

I smiled and interrupted "Yeah, and it was using only 1 shot, from a pistol."

Suddenly the newbies on the field felt a little less intimidated.
