Enos- What exactly propells the ball down the barrel?  Is it the spring driven piston?

Yes the spring hits the paintball and causes it to go 310 fps

Actually, it isn't that big.  It is only a little taller than my cocker, and is quite a bit shorter than the cocker.  It just has a very hefty feeling.  With a mini-tank and mini hopper it would be a very compact gun.

BTW - I was just talking to the manager of a field who is contemplating replacing his rental PGPs with C3s for their indoor pump game.  He did the math on CO2 savings, and the C3 easily won out.  And, of course, the C3 is much easier to operate than a PGP.  Any place that still runs pump-only games would have to take this seriously as a rental.  Which, of course, goes to the main point - if Tippmann can turn out a semi, it will instantly become the rental gun of choice EVERYWHERE.

only concern for indoor play is ventilation. Although it would take along time for the Carbon Monoxide to build up.

Just think how much you would save on the heating bill!

Ventilation shouldn't be a problem.

Any indoor arenas need to be fitted with proper ventilation in order for it to legally accomodate large groups of people. Carbon Monoxide wouldn't have time to build up with constant ventilation running.

I don't remember the exact building code specifications, but I worked for a guy over the summer who was mentioning something about ventilation regulations for the school I was employed for.

Of course, different states have different laws, but I think all of them should be adequite enough to accomodate the use of propane as a propellant.
