Marker Bids.com?

Hey guys,

I have been playing for almost a year now, but since I'm 14 I don't have much cash. I know there's a site called ********** where you can bid on markers for 1$ per bid and end up getting things cheap. I've heard this site and sites like it are corrupted and not to use them. If you don't recommend this sute, what are the cheapest sites to but gear from? thanks guys

Also at 14 I know your too young to get a job probably but you can find some ways to make some money ask your parents if there's anything other than your chores that you can do for some extra cash.
or if your good at some do that as little business for your self. I was good with computers, technology, cars, and paintball so I helped people with anything with technology washed cars and did some car stuff for them and fixed markers for friends before I was old enough to get a job.

You can find cheap gear in the BST section and on Ebay.

PBnation is great for cheap gear.

I also have found some winners (and some losers) on craigslist. I do insist on being able to see the marker if I'm using craigslist. typically people here on PBN know what they're talking about but not everyone on craigslist does.

I try to stay away from Ebay out of principal but there are a lot of legitimate people on Ebay, more good than bad I would hope.

also ANSgear, hustle paintball, paintball-online, there are many online retailers that do big sales or have blowout refurbished gear. You can try them too.

If you're low on cash buy a cheap gun, not a junk gun, but a cheap gun (spyder, tippmann, azodin, BT, proto, etc...) and spend the money on paint and field fees.

It not a scam, but its more like gambling than anything else. You're more than likely not going to win anything, and you'll end up losing money in the process.

It sounds like a scam based on your description.

IIRC, that site is run by the owner of a competing PB-centric site. It works by people buying "bids" like on quibids.com. You can very easily pay a good chunk on bids only to have someone else wind up with the marker.

Right now I have a Dm4 and that's it. I love it but I'd like to pick up a backup. I may get a spyder and up it just for a fun thing to do. And yeah I'll take a look in your sig man, thanks. And congrats on the marriage!

Just buy here on the Nation. Most people are reptuable om here and this is the paintball site that doesn't require you to buy anything to buy on here. Its more legit for paintball gear than anywhere else I know. Plus there are forums to see what's its worth so you don't get ripped off.

Penny auction sites charge you for each bid and extend the length of the auction every time a bid is placed. In other words, you could spend $1000 on bids and still lose the auction, and you won't get a refund for the $1000. It's loosely based on pyramid scams and should be avoided like the plague. Besides, I believe Mike put a marker donated to his "museum" up for sale on that site... hardly the kind of person you want to give your money to.

That's because it's probably stolen, as are the rest of the unreasonably cheap guns on craigslist.
