Angel Addiction

Alright, so It looks like I am about to purchase my 4.75th angel (one parts gun missing a few small pieces still).

I am not sure whether it is the low resale cost, nostalgia, or what not, but I can't seem to stop buying them.

Anyone else (besides you ms_schnell, i know you have like 30, lol) similarly addicted?

Hi, my name is Jeff, and I have a problem. I keep buying angels.

Yea I remember that phase. There was one point where I had 11 G7's at one time.... Now I'm down to the SB, an SE, and Max Lundquist's 1of1 Joy Fly SE. It's a drug but it may seize. Give it time. Haha.

I am really just enjoying ripping them apart and bringing the old ones back from the dead

I have a gun addiction in general but I did just recently buy my "dream gun" from back in the day. Now I will have to get a dark IR3.

Yea one thing is I have gotten to a point where I like the old angels so much better than the newer ones. Selling my a1's to get other markers or old angels.

It actually seems like alot of us old guys are returning, and wanting what we originally played with.

Plus they are fun to work on.

I am trying to put together and oring size list so maybe we can get the oring monkey kits instead of piecemealing it.

I just hope the wife doesnt realize how many i have!

That was my collection before i started wittling them down, minus my shockers and a select few angels that weren't available for the group photo...

I'm now down to 4 guns, and 1 project...

I never sell any of my guns. I have been playing since 91. I have been shooting Angel's since the LED and have 20 that all have clamping feednecks, new batteries, asa and are tuned to perfection. The Angel that has been getting most play from me is my Angel Pump. Over the years you see people buy up a bunch of Angel's , think they are the ****, then sell them off once another shiny things passes there way. I have never sold an Angel and don't plan on it either.

Yeah, that's hardcore... I'd keep them if i could justify the expense to play...

But i don't make 6 figures a year or even remotely enough to justify having thousands of dollars sitting on a wall... :|

Now that's an Angel lover right there. My hat is always off to you.

I'd be in the same boat, that's if I have money to spend ; )

Ive owned 2 LCDs, 1 A1 and now an A4 Fly.

They are by far my favorite line of guns. It all started while searching through the Ragnarok gun pic thread. 2 hours later I owned a 2k2 C&C.

Ive been playing since 97-98 and I remember when Brass Eagle sold the Angel 1455 Angel Semi Auto for WDP. I remember looking it up on paintball-online.com at least once per day for about a year.

I played with all types of guns until I remember the IR3 coming out. I tried and tried to get my parents to buy me one, but they thought I would "grow out of paintball. Then came the A4 and my lust for angels increased.

Finally when the 05 Speed came out my dad was going to buy me one, but then my mom put a stop to it

Finally I was able to own my dream guns from years gone by and that right there is a great feeling lol.

That nostalgia is only part of what keeps me around angels, the guns shoot great and the people are just as great in my experience.

Oh my god i want to have sex on that couch. LOL.

That fabric is horrid.

I understand the "not selling guns". I have sold two in my life, regret them both. One of a kinds, no way to get them back.

I doubt i will ever part with an angel, unless its for another angel
