I wanted to play yesterday but the dogs had me up at 4:45 and I did not get back to sleep. I worked in the workshop instead.

so, you know how fields are kind of stuck with a choice that they have to make, "do you want to cater to the self equipped player who is gonna shoot more paint", or "do you want to cater to renters and make your money that way?"

the weather was crap today, so my friend wanted to go to the indoor field here that i really dont like, but my buddy is there all the time, last time i was there (years ago) we all sat around for long *** stretches of time while parties of renters, played game after game and we played like 3 on 3 i think, nobody wanted us to join in, and nobody wanted to join us. nothing like spending your money to sit around and watch other people have a good time.

last time i was there hanging out with my friend, as i was leaving a big group joined and he told me later they played quite a few games and had a lot of fun.

so thinking "maybe things are different this time"
i went today, when i got there, it was my friend and 2 other dudes, and then some big groups showed up, as the owner is giving them the grand tour, he point to us and says "those guys on the back wall wont be playing you"

me and him brought pumps cause we wanted to go have fun.. i use a Winchester FFS!

we were segregated and played 2 on 2's with two guys with semi, played 4 games, was not having much fun, was starting to get really crowded for being around tourists in a pandemic. and i didnt have my clear lens like an idiot, so i was "aiming by feel" anyways..

at least it only cost me 15 bucks this trip.. and i was trying to be really nice to the owner when he cornered me the last time i was there and asked why i never play there

wish I hadn't "dont like paying money to sit around watching other people have a good time"
God I hate when that happens. It has been happening a lot here lately. 2 weeks ago when I played the renters didn't want us (about 8 of us all with pumps) on their side cause they thought we were "pros" the refs told them its better to mix the teams that way each team would have experienced player. so it was gonna be like 8 pumps vs 20 rentals and then your douchey (Only plays against rentals, cheats, bunkers new players with his electro) local player jumps on their team. Between him and the Douchey Father/sons "team" that does the same **** but tell people they are pros and overshoot rentals.

I think that's why we play on our own at the field.

That is starting to happen here as well, my local field is small and really only does one walk on group so there will be 20 v 20 on fields meant for 10 v 10. It is a great time but rentals get wrecked some times. The tough guys from Philly get scarred with the paint starts to fly.

I don't think it's going to happen until I go back to the states.

Reading these stories makes me realize how good the scene is in my area.

Mixing rentals and regulars always seems rough. My regular field offers hourly private party packages. Those shorter packages seem way more popular than the all day packages and it allows them to keep most of the rental groups separate.

(Sorry for randomly popping in and out of here every few months...)

no need to apologize, we dont mind

there arent enough people playing here regularly enough the allow for renters to play seperate

but thats how i learned how to play (all over the country), i always got mixed in with everyone, i never really cared as long as it didn't seem one sided from the start..

but i still played, and was sometimes pleasantly surprised. sometimes it went exactly how i figured it would go

i blame the field more than the people on this one though, little kids are one thing, these were grown-*** adults

if im gonna expose myself to covid by not having my mask on at in indoor field around a bunch of tourists from california, at least they could have let me shoot at them

I played yesterday, it was a mix of rentals and walk ons. More rentals then walk ons and only one or two of the walk ons were try hards. I played with the emek all day since the paint was hard as rocks, I bounced as many people as I got out.

And apparently a paintball mask isn’t good enough for the governor.

I have a Line SI Bushmaster barrel sitting in my work bag right now. Idea is to take some measurements when I get some time.

Worst case, I'd Freak-bore one of the ones I have, or acquire one to Freak. Best case, I'd get a couple unthreaded Stella backs and have them grooved to fit the gun.

From what I've been seeing, the idea with the retention o-ring is keeping the insert in the barrel when it's not on the gun. When it's on the gun, the body should keep the insert in place.

I think.

Now, centering and properly indexing, that's all on how it's machined.
