Gun efficiency

Why is it such a big deal if you have all day air?

I think some people are too lazy to go back and get their's filled...I guess if you woodsball it might be a pain.

Well think about it alpha... Say you run a 68/4500 on a DM5... and drop 7+ pods a game (like 7 man..) you don't wana run outta air...

and cause you don't wana worry about being at the end of the game... or only getting 3k fills at a turnament (had it happen) and run outta air in a game..

sometimes it's not important. but other times it is..

I never get shot in games, i usually run out of paint, or air. It's usually air though.

At a tourney I'm playing in a couple weeks the field is about a 10 minute walk from the air station (there and back.) Probably 15 minute trip after the line.

Let's say you just finished your game and you have 20 mins till your next one starts. Or even worse, you have 10 minutes, maybe you're doing two in a row (finals.) Having a effiecient marker is key.

well with an ineffecient gun, say you get X number of shots off a 68/4500 fill. with an effecient gun, you can either:

A) get more than X shots on one fill
B) use a 45/4500 and still get X number of shots

less weight, same number of shots, or same weight and more shots. would you rather have an 88/4500 tank on a complete gas hog or use a 45/4500 and get the same number of shots the gas hog does?

tl;dr- less weight

Understandable. Very good point.

But what about players like myself who only play rec? OR even n00b tournies like the ones they have around here?

Then its no big deal, unless they want to run a lighter/smaller tank and get around the same number of shots per fill. Plus u cant forget the braggin rights and how sweet it is to say that my gun gets over 2k shots per fill (like mine)

I get fills after every set of games regardless of how much I shoot or how efficient my gun is.

Its helpful because you don't always have time and during drills you don't wanna miss 5-10 minutes just filling your tank.

Or you could just have more than one tank, and fill them when you have time.

like someone said earlier... If you have an effienct gun. you can run a smaller tank... like a 45 instead iof a 68 or a 68 instead of an 88 and still have plenty of air for w/e u are doing. so you can have a smaller, lighter gun..

like when i use my DMc or when i had my DM4... i have to use a 68 in order to have enough air for 5 pods (what i usualy shoot)

when i use my ego.. i can use a 45/4500... wish is alot lighter and still has the same amount of air.

I get 8 pods out of my DM5, so unless you play 10 man, you don't really need an efficient gun.

I would rather have a gas hog that shoots good than an efficient gun that kicks like crazy.

Quick turn around games.
You dont want efficiency of 900 shots and shoot 800 in a game and not able to fill b4 next game. Your done.

about 50 percent of the times i play, im just playing at my house, which sucks, because i have two 68/3Ks, and the pro shop is 30 minutes away. its the only downside to my mag. i can only use about 1300 shots in a whole days worth of play, then i have to switch over to my co2 guns. with two 68/3ks on upped cockers, shockers, dms, protos, impies, ect, you could get as much as 2000 shots out of two 68s. but oh well, im usually only playing with a few friends anyway, sometimes not even using a hopper full a game. at the field, its not a problem, because im not the type who likes to burn 1000 balls a game. i only shoot about 450 in a really intense speedball game.

Bunkertime is totally right. That's why it's so important. And everyone else cares b/c they hope that one day, they'll get in the scene and do some big time tourney ball and need that high end gear.

I'm surprised at my efficancy, i got 1000 rounds off over 1k w/ my centerflag. Somehow i think this has to be wrong. I mean, i have a spyder, no way it is that good w/ efficancy.

dude... stock shockers EAT air... like i mean you can literally watch the guage go down about 1,000 PSI when you shoot 1 halo worth of paint.

and the fuse bolt is good on air... old trix's ate air.. so did old shockers. lol

but barber... an ego w/ a 45/4500 legion air, and a revy = pure sex... even w/ a halo it's light as ****

Efficiency is good because it allows you to dry fire alot more at home, even perhaps allowing you to make a sweet video of your gun shooting without running out of air halfway through the video.
