I thought I could resist. I thought I could be happy with my various paintball markers in my collect. The Mini for the main, the FT-12 for the back-up and the DM3'ed E-Bolt for the sleeper effect, but there was a hole in my soul from when I sold my original Black Magic, and it had to be filled.

So I filled it with this:


$202 out of somewhere in British Columbia. Original barrel, you don't see those that often. I think I'm going to actually work backwards on this one and go for a gloss-black .45 slider frame and get some chrome pneus and just go old-school with it.

Restored:


Even stock, she shoots wicked good.

Nice. Been thinking about turning the sniper I built a couple of months ago into a mech.

You want it? $5 shipped it's yours

And yes. It's very hard to find a stock BM anymore.

Sexy, Tallen.  I want a nice cocker.  I know nothing about them, but I'm going to learn about them, best way is to get one, and I want a nice one, any suggestions?

Anything post 2K with whatever body style and colors you want. They're essentially like AR15's. TONS of accessories and parts, but the workings are pretty much the same. Some are more desirable and more expensive, but they all use the same stuff.

You can go as cheap or expensive as you want.

I'm actually working on downsizing my collection right now but one of the two things I would consider getting to take the collection size in the wrong direction would be a simple, basic mechanical 'cocker.

or accidently hit bid on ebay, and start hacking and slashing.

on a side note, I might just give up a left part of my anatomy for a vertebrate cocker.

I'm sorry, but the vertebrate is the ugliest production mill job I've ever seen in my life.

Strange. I have a Vertebrate lying around...

Stranger still that I disgree with Tallen. The Vertebrate is one of my favorite WGP bodies.

i have grown to hate the color blue. i have to wear a blue shirt work and am surrounded by people that have the same shirt. purple on the other hand may. or may not. be a new color in my collection.


EDIT: oh god the horror! i just realized pictures on my phone do not look as good as they actually are. its so purple, and theres more chrome that a low rider.

I still don't understand why you'd ever need anything other than the veture-cocker. I'm STILL envious.

   well in a nut shell. after i created the venture. i went through a semi mid life crisis, and bought a tequila sunrise matrix, and an '05 cyborg.

apparently it has not ended either. im just waiting for a box containing the marker that got the best of me tinkering wise.
