50 cal !

I actually tried out the 50 cal when i was at sc village a few weeks ago. and i really enjoyed it ! my kids were with me and they were a bit afraid of the bigger paintballs, but once they saw the size of the paintballs and how light the guns were we had a blast !.... cant wait to take the kids back for 50 CAL !

tried using brittle 68 cal paint or an invert mini? kinda like the same thing, except way easier to get paintballs for it.

glad you and your kids had a fun time with 50 cal for your first taste of paintball.
when your kids get older/more experienced i highly recommend moving on to 68 cal. the paint performs better, more guns are available in that caliber (if you chose to buy one), and about 99% of the paintball community uses 68 cal.

50 cal doesn't shoot as far but can shoot through smaller spaces, doesn't cost as much but doesn't shoot as straight, here is a video of me shooting my friend with my ego 9 with a .50 cal kit. if it will play..!/video/vid...35925573120606

Man everyone sure does bash on .50 cal.... I have a .50 cal spyder advancer. The advancer with an upgraded regulator shoots pretty dam straight, sure the wind affects it a lil more since it only weighs 1.3 grams compared to the .68 cal that weights 3 times more but on a non windy day its awesome. I love it! O and if you do get the spyder i highly suggest upgrading the regulator and buy the electronic loader(spyder radid loader).
