I won't lie, I've only been playing for about 6 or so years, but seeing those pics brings about the strangest feelings of nostalgia.

Are we sharing pics? I still have my old APG magazines from late 2004 to early 2005, I'm missing a few, but they are from old to young starting in sept 2004- july 2005 going from top left to bottom right

sorry for the fuzzy pic


Here is eclipse's first gun, proof that they have always charged a crazy amount for their stuff.


9.8 million total, just think, today there is more than that in a single state than there was worldwide.


Just an ad page showing the different guns' prices

Man could you imagine getting hit with one of those MAC 10 rounds? That would be a hit you wouldn't easily forget anytime soon.

Ah, yes, the Para Ordnance Model 85. Always wanted one just to have it. I think Mike at Stalker might have a few rounds of ammo for them.

Eclipse's first gun, IIRC, was actually an AutoMag back in the 90's sometime. I'll have to go spelunking through the archives in the basement to see if I can find one somewhere in there.

The Mod 85 used actual bullet primers to launch the small pellets
from each round. According to the story I hear they stopped selling
them when the BATF learned that someone had figured out a way to
fire 22 caliber bullets from a modified Mod 85. Other downside was
their high rate of fire, not to mention the cost of the bullets. There
was also supposedly a reloading 'kit' but again time and cost to reload
was high compared to normal pellets. Short range was another limiting factor.


Sincerely,

Some of these people must have had huge goat nuts to play paintball with that minimal level of eye protection.

Just keep in mind, we only got about 15 decent shots
out of a 12 gram, even if you had a stick feeder, so
the odds of getting hit by more than a single pellet
were pretty slim. Today anyone with money can put
15+ shots out in under a second. I contend that's
why this sport is loosing players and at the same
time I'm encouraged by the growth in Mag Fed
guns and limited paint events.

Have you got an isue that highlight's the D-Day game in Oklahoma? Seem to recall
an issue that talked about a tank or tanks and that's what got me interested in going
there.
