Oh trust me, I've been trying to figure out how to do that...

Problem is, I use the 12 gram co2 cartridges, so I need space to open that part up and it is RIGHT below the barrel and I want my apex as close to the front as possible.... And they hit each other...

Here is my latest video, it is just a bunch of cool shots I captured with my ZoomCam. Today Tippmann featured my A-5 on their facebook page, which was a nice surprise!

Yeah, I'm not sure I could play "limited" paint only (aka Magfed or pump)... I just really enjoy taking super long range shots at players... And watching them try to outrun my paint! I had a kid all the way across the field in one of the games Saturday, and I was on his side, about 140 feet away. I started firing and hit his leg and he took off running (it probably bounced since I was so far away) and I kept throwing paint at him! 

He ran right, first and got behind another bunker, but I kept throwing paint at him and hitting the top of the bunker right in his face. So he ran back left trying to get away! 

I kept firing, and was leading him as he ran! I was cracking up laughing and the refs were hitting the dirt as there was so much paint in the air! 

The kid kept running and I kept firing and then a tree blocked my shooting area, but the kid was running so fast he couldn't stop, and as soon as he cleared that tree, I had paint waiting for him in the air! He ended up diving on the ground about 30 feet behind a bunker, at the edge of the field. But, my paint was dropping because he was about 175 feet away by this point, and I hit him right in the goggles! 

I was editing the video of it last night and it is pretty funny! 


I don't know if I could skip that part of the game by using limited paint, as that is just so much fun! I probably shot 40 or 50 paintballs at that one kid at least... But, to finally get him after he ran all over the whole field, and with a goggle shot to eliminate him... It was a highlight of the day for sure! Right after he stood up with paint on his mask, the refs blew the horn to end the game! I was laughing all the way back to the starting area.

^^^ I always tell people that playing either pistol only or pump against those with standard or better markers adds a new level of excitement to playing paintball . . .


. . . but not always in a good way.

Just have fun and play a game with two pistols. Then you have the challenge of getting in range and getting back out when it hits the fan.

I got my first "kills" with my LEFT hand on Saturday using my Tipx! One was about 20 feet away, so you can clearly see it on the video from my helmet cam!

Here is the first game of the day, I was doing some "sneaky-sneaky" and flanking the other team. This is a whole game, so it is long... (15 minutes, I cut 5 minutes of waiting out of it). 



The refs had a blast watching, and couldn't believe I was dual wielding. So one took out his cell phone and snapped some pictures.

I'm running my holster on my left side (I shoot right handed)... 

Only because I wanted a side arm so when I was in a battle where I was heavily out numbered I could pull the pistol and use it with my left hand, while also using my regular gun with my right hand! 

I got the chance to try it out this summer. I get shot, but I felt like Rambo when I pulled my side arm, and was aiming at one guy on one side of the tree with my left hand, and then shooting out another with my right hand on the other side of the tree! 

So. Much. FUN! 

You can see that clip at the end of this video, and in the freeze frame. (this video also shows my boomcam footage).

I'm exactly the opposite, and can't figure out why.

Natural pull side for me, it is a GBB M-1911A1. I shoot rifles left handed and pistols right, just the way I trained I guess.

Oldsoldier is that a pistol on your right side? I'm just curious why you have it on that side.

Still hanging around not as much anymore though. I sold off all my paintball stuff, and am down to my simple 'airsoft' personna...


Don't even play that really anymore. Kinda just getting old gracefully...except on a 13 YZ250F and my 12 CRF250L. VA said I needed an exercise bike so I now have two.

Usually a title like "Paintball sniper assassin" are a turn off, but the video was very entertaining. Good job.

Cessman; that looks like a fun place to play! 

Strato: Thanks man! I've always been trying to capture the "feel" of playing woodsball, so new players (or old players) would get excited and want to play it! I must be doing something right, as my youtube videos just passed 500,000 views. It is insane to realize how many hours per day people are spending watching my content. In the past 30 days, 233,350 minutes of my content was watched... Holy cow that is a lot of people watching my backyard games! 

Kayback; I ran Sony movie studio platinum version 10 for years, it has some issues (especially with the new operating systems) so when I got my new laptop, I struggled with it (random black clips, and the program crashing). 

I was working on a huge project for the kids this summer, (doing video editing of a play they were in, 4 1080HD cameras which I was editing it all together) and it just was killing my old version... Finally I downloaded version 12 demo and finished the project (wish I had done that sooner!). 

Then a few weeks ago, Amazon.com had vegas movie studio platinum 12 for $29... So I bought that. 

Sony doesn't support the low end video editing software, so if you have problems you are on your own. Course, when you are getting video editing software for under $100 it is no wonder. I used to sell editing systems back in the early 90's that cost over $100,000.00 and this Movie studio software is WAY better than those were... It is a very powerful program. I've had a few crashing issues on the new version, but I had my hard drive pretty full, so that may have been my problem. Last night I spent the evening pulling footage off my hd onto my spare hd. So hopefully it will be less buggy now. 

My file formats are AVCHD, on my high end sony camcorders. and whatever format Contour uses (I can't remember...).

I used to argue in the sniper threads just for giggles.

FE, what editing software do you use I haven't fond anything I like yet, but them my non Gopro shoots in AVHD.

My very first thread on this forum was about paintball sniping-truly, the most cyclical argument I've ever been engaged in

Those videos make me miss woodsball like crazy. Awesome job, I'm crazy jealous.
