car accident/guns

A few weeks ago I was in a very bad car accident (bad enough that, while I was held in an upside down position by my seatbelt, the fire dept. had to saw out my windshield so I could be removed from the car... I only stayed in the hospital for like 4 days - no serious injury - though I did lose two teeth and break off five more) -- unfortunately, every piece of paintball gear I owned was in the car at the time (on my way to a tournament, where I was going to pretty much supply guns for everyone on my team). At the time of the accident I couldnt have cared less about my stuff, but when I woke up in the hospital and realized that all my guns, etc were probably smashed, I freaked.

fast forward: two weeks later I went to the impound lot to see what I could retrieve. I won't bore you guys with the whole list; suffice to say that I was able to grab 6 (out of 10) guns, in variable condition (at least in terms of exterior damage).

This coming weekend, I'm going to bring the remaining markers to my home field and find out how bad the situation really is.

moral of the story? well, the one gun that survived without a mark, was the only one that was locked up tight in a homemade case. food for thought...
(also - - wear your damn seatbelt!)

Just curious, what happened to the other four markers?

heh yeah, well i'm tired of just sitting around watching paintball DVDs and being sore. It'll probably make me more sore to play, but it's definitely worth it. I just hope I have enough non-destroyed gear that I don't have to go out and buy a bunch of crap...

Most of the guns should be fine unless they were crushed. I'd assume that external damage will more or less correlate with internal damage. No way to know for sure until you get everything hooked up, powered on and pull the trigger though

Even if all of that gear is hosed, at least you're all right! If the stuff that's broken amounts to significant cash value, you might check and see if any of it is covered by your insurance. If your policy has says anything regarding the vehicle's contents it'd be worth checking into.

damn, im sorry about your accident, more importantly, though you have gone through some less than enjoyable times, i am glad you are ok. equipment may be expensive, but its replaceable. and for the record, 6 out of 10 isnt bad, its good you didnt lose the whole lot
