Alright, I don't have pics of my first gun. Just a standard Tippmann 98 Custom I purchased new in 2000-2001. After playing for the first time at my birthday party, I was hooked and bought a setup from Paintball Outfitters
I sold that and then got an '01 Vert Feed Autococker, used from GForce Paintball. 2004?
Bought a PGP2k1 from 888Paintball 2005?
The first gun I bought on the Internet was here on PBN. VSC Phantom 06-07? No, had to be '05 because that was my first trip to SPE. Even though the user I got it from is still active on PBN (Etfren?) from Washington. I was so nervous shipping out that first money order, ha ha.
After that, well it get's fuzzy. This is roughly chronological order, but I have no idea about the dates. I'll have to really sit down and compare tournaments/event dates and see what I was shooting when...
Vert Feed sniper 2, with old school Smart Parts barrel, WGP pump kit, 50rnd hopper.
'99 Cocker I got for free from my Uncle, which he bought for $25 at a yard sale. Came with the glued Dye Boomstick, gun also came spray painted purple. (this gun changed)
I was digging pump, a lot. I also enjoyed modified stock class. Love stick feeds, hate 12 grams.
Acid wash blue Phantom added
I REALLY got into stock class, ordered a custom Super Stocker from PPS.
My first Mag, ULE, pump kit, X-valve, Intellifeed, sweetness. So much fun to keep the pump kit on, but remove the rod and mess with people's mind.
Random picture. Apparently I had another Autococker and a Trracer? LOL
Another sniper 2, with a cool hopper, yet fragile. Also, my first CCM kit (butter smooth)
My Brother's Phantom, we were playing a ton of outlaw ball in the parent's backyard at the time.
An older sniper 2, with Taso frame, J&J hard chrome barrel.
PPS Blazer I went in 1/2 on with another guy on MCB when Craig Palmer had twins and there was a BYGO sale at PPS.
Yet another sniper 2. STO. This was the best non-CCM sniper pump I ever owned. Bought from T222Boy. Sold to a teammate who still has it.
