Ah, there it is. I looked at my feedback here on the Nation, and I'm pretty close; in January of 2011 is when I sold all of my stuff, so it's coming up on 3 years since I last set foot on a field. I have gear now (most of it), but I don't have the money or transportation to play.
we're in the same boat. I have everything to play but spent all my money in the last nationals events, now i can see paintball is really expensive, even more now that i want money to do all the other things i want :/

I just can't see myself downgrading. Especially seeing as even if I did trade it for an Axe plus cash, I still wouldn't have a ride to and from the field... I'd have the money to play, but no way to get there.

I didn't care for the Mini, so I don't know as I'd care for the Axe. I've never shot one, so I can't say for certain, but if it's anything like the Mini (which it appears to be), I most likely wouldn't care for it either. Although, I've heard that from a performance aspect, the Axe is ahead of the Mini by leaps and bounds, so at least it's got that going for it, lol.

Me neither. It just shoots so quiet, smooth, flat, efficient, and is one of the most reliable guns I have ever played with. On top of that, I've been using mine for so long that it is the most natural gun for me to use now. Not to say I can't use others, but I can always count on my Axe

I can't wait to finally be able to get my G6R over a chronograph so that I can tune it. The previous owner never bothered to use a pressure tester to properly set the pressures, and he also never tuned the dwell either, so although it shoots decently enough as of right now, I imagine it'd shoot a lot better once it's been properly tuned.

Probably. G6rs can be so smooth and quiet. A local BLAST tech, Bjorn, had a G6r that shot smoother and quieter than any gun I've ever heard or shot. I was mind blown because I didn't know stacked tube poppets could get that smooth and quiet.

All I've ever really owned and used is various models of the EGO, so I've always known stacked-tube, poppet valve markers to be on the noisy side, and have a noticeable amount of kick to them. It's never bothered me, but it's what I've grown accustomed to. Now that I've learned about the G6R and seen some videos of them being shot after a good session or two of tuning, I know that it doesn't always have to be as I knew it to when I was using the EGO. So, I can't wait to see what it's like firsthand!

Now if I could only gain access to a chronograph, I'd be all set! I've got air in my tank, two pods of reballs, and a pressure tester, as well as a guide on how to tune the marker, but I don't have money to get to a field, or a way to get there even if I did. I've thought about getting a handheld chronograph, but I don't really have the money for one of those either, lol.

I'm screwed six ways from Sunday!

G6rs are much smoother, quiet, and efficient than Egos. I can't say I've shot an LV1 though.

Although it's been a while since I last shot an EGO, or any marker for that matter, I can't say that my G6R is any smoother than an EGO at the present time. I've shot about 2 pods through it, and it seems to kick as much as my EGO 11 did, but like I said, it's been a long time since I last shot it or any other marker, so I could be wrong. The G6R also needs to be tuned, so that could be contributing to the kick. It's definitely quieter though, that much I'm sure of. The efficiency I can't comment on yet, as like I said, I've only put 2 pods through it so far, so I'll see how it does once I get some more through it.

Here's a random but cool computer-related fact that I learned tonight. If you're using Windows, make sure "Num Lock" is enabled on your keyboard's number pad (if it has one), hold the ALT key, and press 0176 on the number pad while entering text into a webpage (a post here on PbNation, on Facebook, in a Word document, etc) and you'll make a degree symbol! For example, it's currently 70 in my room.
