It's "safer" - there's less risk of breaking a guide rod, etc. if you trip while using this monster...theoretically. In reality everything on it breaks

Yea, I don't see that being "safer" its pretty hard to completely mess up the rods where underneath the barrel, you are only removing maybe an inch or 2 for you to hit if your gun hits the ground hard

They have to help maintain relations with sponsors for their racing and such, as it costs about $200k a year for both of them to remain competitive in karting.
What series and where do you race at? I have raced all over for many different teams. Might know some of the same people.

Was out with my kids and girlfriend last week, stopped into one of the local paintball stores- just to look at picking up a GEO2 and a new pair of gloves. I should have know better. My 10 yr old daughter spotted a Nano50 on the wall and was checking it out with much enthusiasm. She started up a pitch on how it is the perfect size for her, and was pleading for me to buy it. I started telling her some of the drawbacks of .50 cal, does not shoot as far, etc., but she would hear none of it, reminded me that she does most of her evil work at closer ranges anyway. I asked her if she had $750 to buy it. She replied she would sell her PM9 and her silver Mini to pay for it if that is what it came to. I broke down and told her I would get it for her. Then my son and gf complained- he said I had already promised him a new ETEK, and she was drooling over a blue/purple EGO. So we walked out with 4 cases of .68 Evil, 2 cases of GI .50 paint, the Nano50 a Kingman Rapid50 loader and Crossfire SS 45/4500 to go with it for my daughter, urban digi-camo ETEK AM for my son, a thistle EGO SLS for my gf, Eclipse Gauntlet gloves, white/black Sly Profit goggles, deposit on a midnight GEO2 and $4500 less in my checking account for me.

So we went out to a local field this past weekend, and as I watched my daughter rip around the fields, I could tell how comfortable she was with her new marker. She is a bit small for her age, and yes indeed it did fit her just right, nice and light and compact. She was thrilled with it, the balls seemed to break well on her targets, she did not have even one single break in the gun all day, and eliminated more than her share of opponents. With her up close and personal style of play, the Nano worked great for her. I was playing against her several times through the day, and she shot me out a couple times. I will have to attest that I felt no difference in getting hit with the .50 as compared to .68, but after playing for 25 years I am fairly insusceptible to any pain from hits anyway. I tried the Nano myself for a bit, but did not like it, the ballistic properties of it were just inferior compared to .68. The thing was just way too tiny for my liking as well, did not fit me or feel right to me. Not a grown mans marker in my opinion.

So even though I have been completely opposed to the whole .50 cal format, I will now have to admit that it does have its place in paintball. Will I use it personally? No way. But watching how thrilled my daughter is with her new Nano I am glad that the format is here, and hope it is around long enough for my 7 yr old daughter to use it when she is old enough to play.
feel ba fir yer

Half of me wants to kiss the judge that finally tossed the gender bias crap and awarded significant child support to a male custodial parent, the other half of me wants to know what $1k/week translates to for a kid.

Yes she has, using a Mini now. She handed her .50 kit down to her younger sister. She likes the "me sized" .50 set-up.

Yeah, in Indiana where we went to court, custodial parent usually receives the support regardless of gender. $1k/week per kid is not based on any requirement of what it actually costs to support the kids. Is based on a formula of # of kids, income of both parents, and # of custodial days of each parent. The bulk $$$ I received from our business split and our net worth, etc. don't factor in. I know someone who has to pay his ex $9k week for 5 kids. One of my friends has 3 kids and pays $175 week to his ex. We agreed to the custody terms on our own before we went to court. My ex worked such long hours that we felt it was better for the kids that I have primary custody, since I was able to spend much more time with them than she was able to. Last year she hired someone else to mostly run her company, she is still CEO, but not as hands-on anymore. So we now split custody equally, I get the kids for a week, then she gets them for a week. She now only has to pay me $1200 week in support. No big deal. Even at that, it does not really cost $300/week to raise a kid, let alone $1k. It is just an arbitrary figure based on the state's formula.
