'Winterize"

How do you guys store up your gun for the winter? I heard some people completely gut them out, clean everything, and then oil and re-assemble in the spring time.

Personally all I do is give it a nice wash and clean everything, then oil it good and keep it in my gear bag. I empty my tanks out too and get rid of my paint.

EDIT: For those of you who don't play in the winter.

Florida has no winter. There is the hot season, and the hotter season. Winter actually makes for some nice conditions if a front hasnt come through recently.

In Arizona, winter is nice, paintballing in the morning at 60*F. It's beautiful.

Welcome to PBF Ahmadi...

9/10 of the people (me included) will say they enjoy playing in the Winter because we do.

And besides, there really isn't much to do to your gun before an extended break of usage. Just clean it and lube it then put it in your room. It's like asking people how they put their masks on.

hmm... I don't know about you guys, but I tear down my guns and rebuild them whenever I get bored. and if you want to store any fun for an extended period of time (I mean YEARS, people, not a season) put it in a cool place. don't throw it in a closet, garage, or attic, cause it'll either rust up solid, the o-rings will turn into jelly, the plastic parts (and electronics, if there are any) will warp and not work right anymore, and well... you might even get a nest of mice in it.


for the winter...uh.... if you don't play in the winter, I say.. PLAY IN THE WINTER!!!

it's loads of fun!

I wouldnt worry about it too much, clean it and let it sit.

Try playing in the winter, you wont freeze if you limit your shots per game.
Hell, my friends and i played when it was 4 degrees out. We loaded up in my friends walk out basement, and only allowed 50-100 shots per game.
