ShockedHas anyone here ever thought: WHY CAN WE JUST BLOW THEM UP INSTEAD OF SHOOTING AT THEM WITHOUT EFFECT?!?!?! Well, Tippman, can you make a paintball rocket launcher that can be sold to the public instead of making our own? I have an idea.....but it may be a wee bit expensive.... in the way of co2. xD 2 Co2 canisters attatched to a 2-3ft long tube with a firing mechanism... Just a rough thought but it migt work.... Thanks!Shocked

You need some wine for that stunt

Several companies already produce Nerf launchers for this purpose, Rap4 and Metadyne to name a couple. Check them out.

Shocked WOW!!!!  Why hasn't anyone THOUGHT of this b4?!?!?!?!?! Confused

Maybe because of liability, safety and marketing issues.

Oh . . . Tippmann designers generally do not read the forums.

I find it interesting how excited people get about paint grenade launchers. I wonder how enthustiastic they would be if they actually got hit with a fist sized paint balloon? I'll bet interest would drop off quite quickly after spending the rest of the day walking around covered in paint schmeg.

No, no, no.  They're only for shooting at other people. Smile

LOLGood thing you asked! In the eye socket , there is a hole at the back that is made for the optic nerve. IF someone isnt wearing any type of armor covering the eye and is shot in the eye, a piece of plastic may be shoved into that hole, thus into the cranium. That, or if someone shoots you at point blank in the base of the skull of the nose maybe, you might be seriously, or fatally injured. Hope this clarifies :)Thumbs Up  Seen here *thanks from wikipedia pics* is the eye socket. See that white blob at the back of it? Now look to the right of that were the yellow nerve leads. That is where the optic nerve will connect to the brain a little further in. Its a 1 in a million chance, but you will still either be dead or blind.

one of my old friends got shot in the eye during one of the games because he didnt own a mask. he was perfectly fine later that day. so your argument is a moot point.
