appearantly no one uses spyders anymore?
A buddy of mine had his birthday party at a newer local paintball place this past weekend. We get out and play a few games (all organized scenario stuff), then while re chronoing, one guy turns to me and asks to borrow my barrel squegee, then proceeds to tell me hates my gun bc its a "speedball gun" (09 electra with upgrades). Said hes owned several speedball guns and they were all junk and how he didnt understand how people could use them over something like his scenario gun, which was some sort of frankensteined tippman (oh i dont know, maybe the fact that i could shoot a crap ton faster and more accurately than he could? Lol). At this point we split ways.
Right after said conversation, it proceeded to storm like all hell let loose for a few, so several people left and we all got together to repick teams. We got into a discussion about something that had happend a couple games before (well more like one guy complaining cause he took like 5 balls to the mask from me when he stuck his head up over a barrier to shoot at me). Mid conversation, he looks at my gun and says "a spyder? No one uses those things anymore". I wanted to ask if he was mad about getting shot up by one, but then realized he was friends with the speedball hater and wasnt supprised lol.
