thats exactly what i have. yea all those p[ics are aftershock guys and afroman the reason they use drops is not the leantgh of the gun, i have an angel and its not much shorter. they use drops to set the tyank how they want to.

On the topic of idiocy, why does it bother people so much if other people argue about pointless things?

I might be one of the only guys on this board to have never used a drop. I used to use a 114 Air America mounted to my grip frame on my old Bob Long cocker. Along with a 16" AA......this was back in 94 you squids!! Before it was kewl....

The funniest thing is that all you wannabe ballers used to use drops.......dont even deny it. All those Kapp drops with 10" barrels.....you know who you are. Now you think its kewl to use no drops and 16" cause the pros do it. I used to tell people the benefits of a long tank and barrel but I was called a n00b cause I wasnt doing the hip thing. So please give it a rest you tards.

Let people use what they are comfortable with.....there is NO right and wrong way.


I know thats a hard concept....

Ya I was one of those people with my 98 I had a huge drop and a 10" CP on it. It worked good for me then, but I've found I like alittle bit longer set up for playing front. Basicly a small drop with a 14" barrel works good for airball cause you can push bunkers away easier, and it makes it a skish easier to aim aswell.

that's what my rig looked like, I cant believe I actually used that, guns are so much more comfortble without a drop or with a tiny one. I think drops are ok with co2 on some guys, but nitro makes the gun just way to ****ing tall.

drop forwards suck dude. pro's have been around for awhile and know that dropforwards make your gun taller. they like the rifle like guns and know drops look gay

The difference between pro players and you guys is that they use drops or no drops because of personal prefrence, not because people tell them drops or no drops are better. Stop doing what others tell you to do, and do what you like. prove which one is better on the field.
Yeah, i have a lapco drop(Pretty short), but I don't like it much. I also don't like no drop. But 68ci's are longer than CO2(Which I use now), so when I get my new trig frame I'll get a shocktech and Nitro.

Basically, experiment with what you like and don't like.

This thread is soo stupid.. For all you "pro's use" I remember not too long ago when the majority of pro's were wearing camo and over half had remotes/stocks... And this isnt that long ago.. We all better go out and buy GTS and remotes now!

So if next year everyone starts to use drops they are going to say they pulled their heads out of their rear and learned drops were better?

God.. There is a right and wrong way to hold your gun. if you need a drop to hold it the right way there is NO problem with that. having your gun higher dosn't mean ****.. As shown in the pictuers if I had a 4ft high hopper, you STILL couldnt hit it...

well i dunno about anyone else, but im 6'4" and i have pretty long arms. I CANT use a drop, because then id be unable to shoulder my gun properly. I think people are forgetting that the players SIZE has a lot to do with wether or not they use a drop.
