I'm baaaack!!!

Hi guys,

I don't know if any of you will remember me but I used to frequent Pbnation until I went to college in 2004. I was around when ICD was getting sued by SP, and being a ICD-owner, I like to think I became more loyal to ICD. I had bought and owned the BKO before it was officially released, but unfortunately, I got rid of it before I left for college. Here's a picture of my gat; hopefully some of you might remember it?:



You ICD guys might recognize this as the first gen BKO. It actually had no serial number. I somehow purchased it before it was officially released by ICD. I'm regretting having gotten rid of it before I left for college.

Now that I'm thinking of returning to PB'ing, I would love to return to the ICD family. I've been looking at Promaster's as they are really cheap right now. Before I took a break from paintballing, Promaster's and Freestyle's were the NEW thing from ICD. Looks like they discontinued the Promaster and will only market the Freestyle now? Anyways, looks like the Promaster will the be the best bang for the buck so it looks like I'll be returning to ICD.

What's up with paintballing nowadays? I know when I left, paintballing was increasing RAPIDLY in popularity. It seemed like a HUGE growing market a couple of years back. How is it now?

Anyways, just wanted to say Hi! to you guys! Hopefully I'll be seeing more of you!

the ayzian

Sup dude. Not much with paintball I guess. People care more about how they look than how they play. Not to mention a bunch of gay fads going around, its not what it once was but I cant complain

New Angel...no one shoots them
Timmys no longer popular gun
Egos are now popular gun....same thing as timmy
NPS bought PMI, and i think K2 bought NPS
SP still *******s...patenting gas through grips Adam Gardener got Pwned by Tom Kaye
Pump is popular now....good for people trying to resell cockers...bad for people buying them
everyone made new guns or new versions of guns
every team will jump ship for another sponsor as long as they hand out money
there more options to a HALO now....some of them cheeper and better
Mq valve is the valve that almost changed the future....but didnt
Everyone has gotten into grease...many more options now
Buncha new masks....some pretty good
No more airsmiths.....too much whiny kids wanting cheep stuff

Not surprised ICD isn't doing so well... people just don't give ICD enough credit for their products. Plus, for most people, paintballing was about popularity--you just buy the coolest newest product that EVERYONE says you need to have. Never really like that about paintball, but what can you do? I just stuck with my BKO and loved it. It's good to see no one shoots angels and timmys anymore. Such a waste of money...

I actually ordered 2 new promasters, one for me, one for my bro. Got them for $215 shipped total? Not a bad deal i think. I was thinking about getting a Bushmaster with the T2 Trayless kit but that alone would cost more than the Promaster alone. Plus, I like the milling and overall work on the promaster better than the Bushmasters.

What hoppers would you guys recommend? I think I'd rather conserve paint so I don't plan on shooting too fast. HaloB might be overkill for me.

Let us not forget that ICD has not been making any new markers since early 2006. They better be making an airplane or tank!

OH, did I mention that you can use a Promaster gripframe, Solenoid, board and ram on the BKO? I have it and love it.

The only problem with it is that the frame is a clammy. I hate clams.

oolala gregicd is still around always loved seeing your custom body bushmasters and upgrades you made for the bushmasters

Hopefully you're making stuff for the Promaster as well? I've been reading up about the ICDU ram, will someone please make it for us?

Used halo or new evoIII?

haha I was looking at some b2ks but it seemed much more sense to get a Promaster for basically $100. Much cheaper than buying a b2k, getting it T2'd, etc. can't wait to get the thing

I think I remember you from around here too. What marker you been shooting? You've been here for a while right?

I've heard ego's and dm's are the new things to own. But I can't justify the costs right now. PLus I don't plan on joining any big tourney's anytime soon so the $100 promaster should suit me just right. Paintballing on fox eh? I remember seeing PB'ing on ESPN some 3 years ago.

Only on PbNation....sheesh.

Seriously, I agree with Pumps comments, but that is just more B2k goodness for me. I just got a b2k for parts for an insane price. 80 bucks and it had a vapor valve, CCM feedneck, Sonic LPR, Nox board, ect....the whole marker. Ask VDub, I beat him to it....

Now if I can just beat Steve to the good stuff on ICD-OWNERS....

IMHO, the Bushmaster is a nicer platform. They take more money to up but I think they are a much nicer marker in the long run.

Don't even get me started on that Defiant he got. The guy dropped the floor out of the prices and i'm always one half-step behind. One heck of a deal.
