I got shot in the leg from about 30' by a marker that later had chronod at 370fps (we were playing on private property, not a managed course).  10 days later I still have the welts.  over 300 fps can shatter mask lenses, don't tell me it couldn't pop an eyeball.

That being said I saw a nice design for a paint cannon that fires 27 paintballs in a sabot round.  Looks like a potato cannon.

Incidentally, a paintball gun can kill you by causing a bloodclot in an artery should you get hit in the right place (neck being one of them).  This was a concern of my wife when I first started playing until I got neck protection.  She also happens to be a board certified RN of 15 years since you require the opinion of someone familiar with physiology.

Other then the fact that the EGL 47 is a mock M203 grenade launcher that u put on the end of your marker it is also 800 dollars and i dont think somebody that is looking for something that is affordable considers an 800 dollar M203.

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
 
he was asking tippmann to do this and I was just informing him that they already did. to some
degree... um as far as affordablity that is a seperate issue.
 
and its only 600 at  www.exocticsportz.com

Not sure what exactly you are saying here since it doesn't even resemble middle school grammer, but in all fairness I'm not the one to be talking.
 
But, I assume you're saying that you basically want to blast the crap out of people, without actually using a RPG-7.
 
Gotta tell ya, the whole paintball maker thing... works pretty well for that very purpose.

whoever suggested to use a potatoe gun is an idiot.
 
I know a guy who was shooting D-batteries and crap out of a potatoe gun and it pretty much demolished anything it hit.  So imagine getting hit by a large bag of paint, which is probably moving at higher velocity than a standard paintball, hitting you square in the chest or in the head. it will probably kill you.
 
So potatoe gun guy what you have suggested is an epic fail.

agreed 10000% i know people who have gotten winded from a nerf football (well as much as would fit in the patato gun) out of a patato gun just imaging paint balls hitting you at that speed. and to prove my point patato gun guy if u wanna see what i mean (because i cant say go try since that would induce violents even tho its twards an idiot) "dont try it" wink wink

Lol armour.
Oh and on the subject of firing silly things I've sen an electrical screwdriver getting fired out of a SP1 (with a round end with a cone indent pretty much the same size as the barrel) first time it got stuck in the frame of another SP1 (like it stuck into the metal) It went into wood so far that we needed pliers to get it out. Oh and it went completely into a cinderblock. It was incredibly stupid and dangerous but epic.
