Might be leaving the family

So, after having my timmy for a couple of months, the gun whore in my has finally came out. I may be trading my timmy in sig for this angel: http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=1670443

What do you guys think? My timmy has served me well, and I will try to get back into the family later on if I do trade. I do not know though, I need a second opinion. Of course, the angel forum said my timmy was ugly and I would regret having it after I got an angel

let me just say the transition from a timmy to a angel is so hard to m aintance and deal with lets say your break the circuit board u will wait 4-5 week as it gets shipped in from england at least i did i even had the newer style 05 speed and will take a timmy any day over it im not being biased im just saying in the end its your choice dont mess it up.

Angels are just as simple to maintain as an Intimidator. Personally, I think that you just stick with that Intimidator and get a new regulator. Angels' resale values are not good and you will not be able to find anyone to trade for one unless it is a G7, 06 Speed, or 05 Speed.

Stick with the Timmy. You won't be able to get any good trade deals with that Angel. Just save your money and upgrade the GZ as you get money.

Don't leave the timmy family for an ir3. Those things are dinosaurs now. I had one and believe me, I would much rather have a timmy.

actually, it would take less than a week. but it would cost $25 bucks to transfer the warranty on TAG's predator board over to you. and since its has a predator board it is no longer an ir3. i'm sure this gun shoots ropes, but it'll still be an anchor compared to your timmy..

and isn't a gun whore someone who owns multiple markers at one time?

Well yes I guess so. I would if I had the money, trust me, but since I can't I will get a gun, use it 2 or 3 times tops, and then just trade it. Some people I know will use a gun once and then trade it.

Trust me, sticking with an Intimidator would be a smarter choice.

Well if we take first and my timmy shoot well, then I will not trade. If it is shooting below average then I may trade, and this also depends on how much he is adding and if he will ship first.

get that ugly*** mofo gz outta here and trade it for the angel! seriously, I have had 2 timmies and 4 angels, and I do like angels better than timmies. you won't regret getting that angel. i had an 04 speed with a WAS board(semi only) and a freak barrel and a boomstick and a few other ups(which i bought for 250 fully working by the way)and that thing freaking rippppped. I could get it up to over 17, whereas I can get my dragon timmy to about 12 BPS and I could get my GZ to about 13

I dunno about you, but I can get my Timmy over 13 bps. And if you wanna make the transition do it, try out an angel first though, otherwise you might regret it. But if I were you, I would personally stay with Timmys

Listen to me man, I know how you feel


I know how you feel, I'm at a cross between timmy and g7 fly right now, I want to sell my timmy for money to buy the angel, BUT i also want to keep my timmy soo bad

i really dont want to leave the timmy family, what i want to do is keep both and switch back and forwarth.

but anyways, Dont trade for an ir3 thats for sure.
if your gonna trade for an angel, at least get an 05 speed, like said before ir3's are old, and i also hear the COPS system is junk

Hey I'magoodboynow the reason the angel was shooting 17 and the timmys 12 and 13 is because angel boards are rigged and add shots. My coach has a A4 Fly and a alias timmy and his A4 Fly he can shoot 24 bps in semi. That is impossible for any person because the fastest your nerves can react and walk a gun is 17 bps semi. Anad that's already a unnatural person.

To answer some questions, I have tried my friends A4 fly and it is actually very nice. I know it is old, but it is so upped that it does not really matter. Also, who cares if the COPS system is junk, because this doesn't have it, it has break-beam laser eyes. This is tough though because I want to keep my timmy but yet I want a different gun.
