The eyes way would have problems. Say splatter got on the eye. Would it go all ballistic and fire full auto? or just not work? I like the idea of the touch pad. Like someone else said, safety would be a big concern, so the idea of a touch pad on the back of the grip that your hand would activate to activate the trigger would seem plausible. Interesting concept. I'm sure someone will try it eventually. Hard to say if a new trigger style would take off...ahem...kingman...rocking trigger...

Been there done that, seen the video. There's a reason it never caught on. Its not safe, and just doesnt work how you want it to. Plus for leagues they require a trigger.

I like your idear of the touch pad in fact I thought of this befor but never wrote it down cause some people on here are asswipes . to me your best bet will be the touch pad and if a company like apple (IPOD ppl) could make it because they have it down pat. I belive you could walk the trigger touch pad deal super super fast in semi no need for ramping. try thinking of a name for it . like a gun name.

Problem with touch pad that is if anything bumps it, the marker will fire. Therefore you will be shooting the ground a lot when your clothes bump it and ****. Plus when the touch pad gets shot how do you keep it from getting damaged? Make it a replaceable part like membrane pads? That might work, but i doubt a lot of people are going to want to buy new ones all the time.

not really if like he was saying above an ipod type one was used it would work just fine, ive never been able to find anything that would activate it besides a finger/ skin contact.

there was a company that offered it for a very short time as a mod for freestyles and intimidators, it was over $200 to have done, wasn't reliable, was dangerous, far from perfect, and just isn't a good idea. its like bushmaster trying to make ar-15s out of carbon fiber, why change what works perfectly already?

I really havent been directly shot in the trigger like a direct inpact and you have the trigger guard and your fingers are usally always on the trigger during a game.and like other people said there would be a safety switch also

simpsons did it!

Play paintball a little longer, play a tournament, you'll have trigger shots.

SO this is good to see that some people would be able to catch on and its really cool to see people correct what could be wrong but like as for trigger shots idk maybe like in motocorss (peel away masks????) but the actual pad would have to be super storng to not break on impacts and slides/dives HMMMM and kingamn im sorry but the rocking trigger was a piece of ROCKING **** lol hmmmm this is cool all the different opinions and if anyone has one of those intimidators with the mod on it please feel free to post up a vid or some pics and HAVE A HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE also keep the posts coming its nice to see

I wouldn't even touch a gun without a trigger. It wouldn't make your rof any faster, because already, current triggers don't limit your finger speed in any way. It would be pointless...

you could make a trigger pad that is activated by a microswitch. it could also have 2 guide rods with spring returns. that would be alot like a trigger in a way.
