I am ordering one here soon. I plan on posting a detailed review as well.

I think I would like it to mess around in the backyard if you buy more than one and have friends. Kind of like going to walmart, buying a couple BE guns, and just mess around in the backyard.

The point is you dont have time to reload, its either a last resort or something you take on a suicide mission, i guess you dont knw the meaning of that though since your afraid to get shot .

Looks like a lot of fun, but I think I'd rather take a Sydarm with an SC feed and 12ie.

or a one of those pistols that tippmann makes considering most paintballers wear alot of gear it wouldnt be that hard to conceal such a pistol which holds a bunch more shots.

For the same reason people like to use 27-year-old Sheridan rifles that weigh 5 pounds and only hold 15 shots; It's fun!

Some people have been playing paintball for a long time and get bored with the newest, fastest guns. For them, older guns, or more unique markers like the Goblin keep the hobby fresh.

Did you know that the Goblin is the smallest paintball gun ever made for production?

Totally agree. It's not meant to carry onto the airball field, or even pump games. It's meant for scenarios or just messing around. And i plan on getting one just to mess around.

Exactly.

When little Johny rich parents shows up with his new SLS and goes on and on about how it's SOOOO light you look him square in the eye and say you'd NEVER use a gun that heavy and that you've got a gun that's much lighter. When he doesn't believe you bet him money. When he accepts whip the Goblin out of your back pocket and say "Pay up sucka!"

Show up to a scenario wearing a long sleeve white T-shirt with the words "Camera Dude" written on the front and back. Not yellow or orange, or what ever the official ref's and camera crew wear. Carry a fancy camera or camcorder (film/batteries/memory card optional), and a small camera bag with two Goblins stashed in it. Make sure it's small enough that a TPX will NOT fit in it. Run around the opposing side of the field taking pictures/filming. Work your way up to the opposing teams base (if asked about your teams armband that you're wearing, well I hope you're a good lier). Have the General and XO pose for a picture. Say something like "hang on, need a new battery", reach into the camera bag and POP POP! Huge point swing in your teams favor, and possible MVP award.

Possible repercussions of the Goblin, scenario players doing full body cavity searches of everyone approaching the General.

I like the air of creativity. The Goblin is about options, and ridiculously fun ones at that.

I thought it would be cool to mount it on the weaver rail on my x7 load it with a first strike round and have an extra long range shot to surprise them with.
