Please read the bloody stickies.....

Not just to you, the stickies in a forum are generaly need-to-know information someone took the time to sit down and prepare in advance to answer question and clarify rules. General forum policy is, if you have a question about something common, look at the title of the stickies first.

Generaly, I would have seen "oh HPA Q&A, I bet he might have answered my question there" and read the thing. Now if you need clarification on something written in those stickies, PM there creator or post here and we'll help you. I'm not going to spend time giving extensive answers to questions that I, and the other sticky authors, have already taken the time to sit and write.

Thats not the point dude. I put alot of work into that sticky, as did the others on the rest. The whole point is for you NOT to ask these questions over and over again. Think if I had to type a response to these posts, wich were showing up once a day, in the detail I did in that forum how much time it would take. What would end up happening would be pretty simple, guys like me , volkers, shox ,kaz ,torch, and all the rest that come here to help out would stop answering thsoe questions in detail. We do those things to help out and make sure YOU get the most out of the help we can provide.


Now I'm sorry you got your case jumped, but this kind of thing grinds me. I don't ever mind helping people out with paintball questions, wich is why I leave my AIM name were folks can find it, and I always respon on there. But there has to be some give and take. Theres a very good first gun sticky, an HPA sticky(dont know how good it realy is, but its there), shoot I even have an animated sticky explaining e-guns knocked up. If your not willing to read those first, it makes it very frustrating to answer your questions, and motivates us not to do it anymore.

This wasn't aimed just at you, I'm nto trying to rain on your parade and get mad, the point was to get you and everyone else who reads it to think first. There are alot of ver knowledgable posters here, quite a few who know alot more than I do, that are willing to help, but be nice to them.

There was an old way to cheat by "cocktailing" the two together to get spikes in velocity, but don't do it. It would probolly end up killing you. CO2 tanks arn't designed to take the high pressures that an HPA fill station fills to.

Okay dude.

HPA stands for High PRessure Air.

Air is 21% oxygen and 78.6% Nitrogen.

Air is mostly nitrogen.

The words 'air' 'compressed air' 'high pressure air' 'nitro' and 'nitrogen' are all interchangeable to paintballers.

You can NOT put HPA in a CO2 bottle. CO2 bottles are designed to hold mostly liquid and some gas. CO2 gas is usually always the same pressure (depending on temperature)

High Pressure air is always a gas. The pressure of HPA has nothing to do with its temperature. You need to use a regulator on the tank to make sure you don't blow up your expensive gun.

CO2 tanks do not have a regulator on them, and since sometimes the liquid can spill into your air line, its bad for high end markers that have delicate pressure tolerances.

Oh, and read the friggin stickies

listen closely. Nitro and Compressed air are the same thing as far as you are concerned.

Or dont do that and not blow yourself to little pieces......

CO2 tanks= not rated for 3000 psi. If your burst disk failed, Or had an improper pressure installed, the tank would rupture. 3k psi is enough it would probably knock the cylinder through a cement wall at 10 feet or so, dont be stupid..
