what next for my phantom.

hey i got a black/green acid wash vsc-45 phantom, with clear parts, green trigger shoe, and detent kit, plus i have a shotgun shell belt. i have about $30 extra to spend now. what should i get it on. i don't think i want to get a 4 oz. for now, i'll wait the 2 months til my b-day for that. i can get this one guys black sticky grips for 14 shipped, or i can buy brand new clear dye panel grips for 13 shipped. the clear panels, would look a whole lot sexier, but the sticky grips would be mroe comfy.

that leaves me with about $15, i can get a new red dot for about $10 shipped, or is there anything else i can get. if i don't need the red dot, i can always use it on my pellet gun too.

i already have everyhting for actually playing covered, so don't say that.

oh, i could also jsut spend like $23 or so on some clear dye stickies. then it looks pretty sexy, and is comfy.

i have about 20 12 grams right now. i have 25 tubes so that's enough.
i'm thinking of doing the gauge on back myself. someone on phog did it, and it doesn't seem very hard. i'm going to see how muhc i shoot in a day before i buy more 12 grams. if i shoot a lot then i'll prolly just buy a 3.5 oz. tank. otherwise i'll get some clear stickies, see if i need a sight, then buy some more 12 grams. then i'll get the tools and a guage, and put it on.

well, some people like sights, i don't quite have my gun yet, so i don't know if i need one or not. probably not though. i tihnk i'm getting some extreme rage clear timer grips. it's like $10 shipped so.... i could always get a new mask though. i have a $20 jt invader mask. sometimes it fogs, plus it feels kind of bulky on my head and moves a lot. my friend has a proflex and it feels perfect for me.

IMO, don't get the Extreme Rage timer grips....first off, they aren't that comfy, and secondly, you can't ever turn them off or on. They just continually stay on once they are made.

what size barrel did you get? i find with my 11' that aiming down the side is some what difficult due to the pump handle.. with a longer barrel it might not be so bad... but on the stock feed tube is a sight rail.. its takes some getting used to.. but it works.

did you order a stock? I have the adjustable T stock.. they are pretty expensive though.. so i suggest you see if you can try one out before you buy it... i hated mine at first.. but now i always play with it.

the guage mod wouldnt be to hard..

yeah, if had an extra bottomline or on/off or somthing, i would just buy a gas throuhg stock. i might try to buy a different stock, instead of the regular phantom one, it wouldn't be adjustable, but it would be a lot cheaper.

i can get some clear dye sticky grips for 12 shipped. if i wanted sticky 3's i'd have to buy em new, which would be either like 27 shipped, or about 30 from local store. the clear one of those looks more like grey too. i'm jsut going to get those and the adjustable p-stock.

omg omg. i got me phantom in the mail finally. wow it's so beautiful. it's soooo accurate too. i don't need dye stickies i've decided. i'll either stick wiht the hogue grips, or get some clear dye panel grips for cheap. i have a p-stock on the way and that leaves me with about $13. i was thinking of just keeping my gun same for now, but idk, i think a red dot sight might help. i don't know if i just need to get used to this gun (only shot about 17 rounds) or if it would really help me.
