Good job! This is how you get 2 stars and earn your third. More people should think about posts before posting, like this guy.
I have returned to the Tippmann Forum.

I updated the post with further relavant information based on browsing the forums and the valuable input of fellow forumers. I just wanted to thank those folks here for there assistance because I realize they probably won't reread the original post.

Thanks for the assist, I added what you suggested regarding CO2 tanks and decided to simplify the section on regulators rather than going into more detail because it is aimed at new players. In the future, feel free to "insult" me by spelling out any additional information. I don't offend easily, and if I don't know it, then I get to hide my ignorance and just say "Oh, uh yeah . . . I knew that." (In the case of stabalizers and regulators, I've gotten in the bad habit of using the terms interchangeably and, as you rightly pointed out, I need to quit that.)

But how much you want to bet that no one reads it?


Stop it, you're depressing me.

To help clarify Mack's statement:

A regulator is a device that controls or limits the volume of gas that enters the gun, typically through the use of a piston and spring that the gas has to push against. This keeps the output of a regulator at a certain PSI level.

There are two main purposes to a regulator:
-Keeping a constant PSI level entering your gun, you will prevent velocity spikes, and generally keep your velocity level more or less constant.

-Using the minimum amount of gas that your gun requires to shoot a paintball and cycle the action, you will more efficiently use the gas in your tank, and may notice an increase in your shots per tank of gas.

A Stabilizer is a particular brand of regulator built by Palmer Pursuit Shop.


This is a much better explanation than what I wrote. I will probably go through this over the next day or so and work on adding it to what's there while avoiding repetition. Thanks.

I should also thank Squishy for giving me the idea for this post (and some valuable information) with the barrel length thread he started. That, and some comments from some forumers dreading the "Christmas Newb Invasion" were my motivation here. (I always wished somebody had given me a paintball primer both before the first few years I played and quite a few years later when I returned to the game.)

First off Hello everyone,

I'm just breaking into the paintball scene, after playing years of airsoft which i will continue to play, just registered to say great job on the post,  It answered many questions i had and also opened my eyes to some other ones i didn't think of.  I think this forum will be a handy place to visit when i start to get questions.
