I got my first marker in 94, it was a pmi hornet. Since it was petty early in pb no one I knew played so it sat in a closet for a decade until my cousin asked to borrow it one day. I got semi interested again but it still took a few years to get out and see what paint ball had to offer.

I started as a photographer for my cousins team and after about an hour of trying to get good shots while getting shot I had enough and just happened to have my hornet. I joined my first game in the midst of a 1500 man scenario at tpx in joliet il. What a rush!

Since then I have been hooked. I got my first bko (it had a horrible detent job done on it) after that I built the orange one that you have seen on here.

My bko is my first electro love but the hornet is never left behind and it never has let me down.

What is your first marker that you could not live without?

I still have my first real gun. It was a blind Bushmaster, and I went all out on it. All the vapor mods, eyes by pyro. It was a solid shooter. Sits in my closet now, cannibalized for parts to fuel my better bushys. But the body is there, I keep it for sentiment.

Tippmann 98 custom. Still have it. I thought I would turn into a speedball gun when I was 17. I have since rethought that, but I still have it and have no intention of selling it. The response trigger is alot of fun too.

I am a bit sentimental with my guns. They all have a good story behind them. My recent infatuation is my tiberius tac 8. I have been watching a lot of youtube vids on it and I hope to use it speed balling today. I need more mags tho. The first strike conversions are hindering that just because its the "new" thing. I have nothing against fs rounds other than they are damn expensive but it shoots great the way it is.

My original bko body is basically a paper weight now but I have a similar one so I can rebuild it. I am not a fan of seeing my guns in parts. Extra parts are a different story.

aside from the cheapo walmart guns i first bought because I wanted to shoot crap, and eventually play paintball with, my first electro and first REAL marker was a spyder e99, I bought it new from a pro shop, with a revvy and 20 oz tank, I got a barrel kit for it and a delrin bolt too, man I was balling with that beast, gave it to my younger brother, and idk where it ended up now

I started making real money and picked up a karta emag, it was balls out from there..

you'll buy it, then venture onto the timmy boards, get the idea of making it a Spimmy and then that will be your next money pit.

my first love was my Tippmann Carbine, #4354. pre-CVX valve, and sent it to a friend(who was half of Airtipps) that was going to work it to the max. that was in 01-02, haven't seen it since. no pics, no luck. its somewhere in New Mexico, and i know who has it. next time i'm visiting my mother, i will be calling for it.

but my love goes to the next gun i have. from the carbine, to my Mag-my anvil. then my cocker, my Eclipse Angel, Bushmaster, DM4, Ego, or whatever i have next.

The only gun I could not live without would be my s6.5. That is my love.

The one I miss the most and hate myself forever for letting go of, I had a mint condition OutKast sniper with CCM pump kit, asa, rail, and some other ccm goodies. Also had a single finger slider on it. I tried tracking it down to buy it back not to long ago, but only to discover it got parted out Sad
