You do know that Tippmann's and a few select Spyders amidst other extreme low ends have a feedneck that is not a centerfeed right?

 He is refering to other cheap guns without going into name specifics. However even if he flat out said "Tippmanns are low end guns" He'd be right...because Low End isn't an insult. Low/High end refers to the overall level of technology and engineering. A Tippmann is extremely well designed to work simply without a ton of tiny bits and pieces. Thus Tippmanns are low end markers.

And if anyone is in a position to call a gun high or low end it would be him...as he works for Tippmann.



Not to mention, I've played X-ball at a competitive level iwth those tippmann's that have a "butt load pourd into em." But gee whillakers, guess what billy joe bob?  It still isn't the same.

you can still find power feeds for tippmann 98s that swich the hopper to the left side of the gun. (i have one)

some older autocockers are left feed or powerfeed left.

automags come in left, right, center, pf left, pf right, warp left, warp right and spring fed tube...

solution buy an automag...

Same here.  Left-handed, right-eyed.  Shoot rifles (and bows) right-handed.  Pistols confuse me.

Don't I know it. I used to get yelled at when I reenacted dismounted cavalry, I'd wear my pistol holster on the left, cross draw it with my right hand, then switch hands to shoot.

To OP:  In addition to vertical feed guns, there used to be a variety of guns that had left feeds, and you could use those old bodies.  Old powerfeed-left bodies for Automags, for instance, would work with newer valves, giving you a left-handed fancy new Automag.

Easier said than done for nubs like us Jet P.  I shoot goofy-foot but it works for me.  I always trigger with my right hand whether I'm shooting left or right.  It's actually pretty fast to switch that way.

I wouldn't spend any more then $10 for a lefty gun, i been shootin real guns since i was younger and some lefty guns are a hassle, easy to just shoot lefty with a righty gun especially in paintball you don't have to worry about hot brass hitting you.

i cant stand it when my hopper gets in my line of sight. I dont care what any one say's I HATE IT and i would actually spend alot of money on it to!! So come on all you leftys!! lets ban together and STAND UP for the left handed society. And for those of you left handers out their who dont really care if the hopper is on the right (i mean if you have really thought about it and it really does not matter to you), put zero on the poll and tell us why as long as you are a lefty!  

Understand my goal is to show if Tippmann should make left handed guns or not. it really does not matter if they put them on stock because i will get one some how!!!

ooops, my bad, lol

You do it for a living and you're new to the sport?

Sounds to me like all you're doing is covering the tape line from the back.  In doing this you're not helping to cover the middle of the field as effectively as you could.

If you play the right tape you will be at the same disadvantage as a right hander countering you down the tape line(he must shoot left-handed).  From the right side, if you are playing angles across the field, which there should be alot more than just playing the tape and will be more helpful to your team, you will have an advantage over right handers because they have to shoot left-handed to counter you.

Give it a try

Because if you are on the right side and hiding behind a bunker.  you would have to shoot over the right side of the bunker.  because if you shoot on the left side of the bunker you are exposing yourself to the whole left side of the playing field.  i dont know about you but if you are a lefty i would rather pop up on the left side of the bunker because i could stick my gun up first and have accurate fire.  (trust me i do it for a living)  but if anyone else has a different idea please enlighten me because i am new to the sport and absolutely had a blast the first time i went out and played.  i loved it soooo much i went and bought me a 300 dollar paintgun. hahaha
