Milling bodies, that reminds me I have 4 of them that I've yet to do anything with..
Been thinking about going bonkers with a file and sandpaper on one just to see how amazingly ugly it'll become.

You could easily double your money with that pick up.

Local CL listings in my area are ridiculous ... you'll see a DM6 with a Halo and an out of hydro tank sell for $600 .. a superstock autococker for $350 ...

Haha!

So, I'm sitting here and I've had a brainstorm of an idea after seeing that shoebox you posted, V. Did they ever make warp breechs? And does anyone have a spare backplate?

Put the IM up on eBay with a fairly high reserve, gonna see what sort of bids it gets there. May put it back up here as well. Whatever gets me the best offer. I may not get what I'd like for it but I don't think I'll use it anymore and I'm not much into collecting things that just sit around.

Of course if I sell it, that does mean that for the first time in about 8 years, I won't own a Matrix of any kind. But I've fallen in love with my NT, and I'm supposed to use an Axe for PSP events, so yea.

You'll be back before you know it. You could also get a beater for cheap and have it as a sleeper just to get your 'trix fix.

Lol. I doubt anyone will, depending on what it gets bid up to I could send a second chance offer (assuming eBay still works the same way)

Or I could end it now for $1

Maybe this was what we were like when we were that age? I know I hate going to a field and it being a bunch of 15-18 year old kids, but I imagine I was the same way.

I just wish the BST on the site hadn't went to garbage. It's so hard to get anything done anymore. McB delivers the better transaction experience, but you just don't have the same volume over there.

Yeah .. I guess. Back then it was the hipster timmy-owners. Same **** different day..

Ebay is a great place as well. I listed my rotor here and I swear I got bombarded with low-balls .... I had like 14 PMs that read, "$100 for the Rotor" ... LMAO, I said, "**** this", 'listed it on ebay and got 140 shipped for it w/o any haggling involved.

The problem with eBay is you lose 12% of your sale price to eBay and PayPal, and don't have access to the rest of the cash until several days after the item is delivered. I still don't understand what happened to rotors though, I bought mine brand new on eBay for like $139.99 with free shipping and a free speed feed a couple years ago.

What really makes me mad now is some guy bought my PM8 and hasn't paid. So I wait for the PM8 to sell, then have to wait 3 days for him not to pay and file a report, then relist and wait for it to sell again. Then when it eventually sells I have to wait for payment to ship. Then wait for the shipping time. Then wait the 3 days after its delivered. So basically I won't be able to spend the money until the end of the month even though I've priced it super low to sell quickly.

I hate everybody right now. Though I did recently sell a tank, Ion and Geo for much more on eBay than I was being offered here.

I was a god with my Red Ironman Timmy when I was 16.

Ebay: It's the bane of my exsistance on most days. Stuff always sell, but people usually never pay. For some reason the person that always wins has no feedback and doesn't pay. Then I have to wait through the process fo relisting. Sometimes they pay instantly, but more times then not I have to play the waiting game.

Had 2 A5s I bought to flip sell yesterday. It planly says I don't ship outside of the US in my listing. Winning bidder? In South Africa, of course.

Yeah, I always factor-in the 12% into the price .. However, by the time they started doing the seller's limit I already had enough feedback/sales to pass the threshold, so I didn't get shafted with that nonsense. I get my money as soon as the buyer submits it.

LMAO @ "I hate everybody right now" .. thats exactly how I feel about PBN and most of its users. People are just ****ing senseless and unconscionable to the point where its mind numbing.

Ebay has its own market .. there are people there who don't BST on message boards .. these people also tend to have more cash, it seems.

Had the same problem until I put an end to auction-style listings and said, "hello", to Fixed-price listings. Now people HAVE to pay before wasting my time.

I had a lasoya 2k2 myself when I was the same age... and yes, I felt very cool.

..My e-bay problem right now is people who don't leave feedback. I've got over 15 sales without feedback, I've tried asking politely for feedback w/o success ...most of these users are somewhat inactive though, other seems to be strictly buyers who don't leave ANY feedback at all to any of the more recent sellers.

yea i dont so much hate the 17/18 yr old kids its the ones that act like the wanna be hipsters and what not with their stupid new language. im almost positive when i was playing paintball when i was younger i did not act like that. course it was different back in those days as well pro teams were still using mech markers, we had to defend our sport against a ton of people (just like this one paintball news piece, but was everywhere hahaha) they WERE NOT guns they were MARKERS, hahaha. if u liked the sport u didnt act like an idiot back then u tried to convince people otherwise.

I thought i was AWESOME hahaha.

Hah yeah, back then my main three guns were a lasoya, an NYX, and an EVO slider ... guess which one I still have? Thats right...the only one I sitll have is the NYX. I do regret selling the EVO though, it was a beautiful dust black to red, but I was never really a timmy guy, just shot it for the team.
