My new scenario savings

I'm saving up for the RAP4 I've always wanted and loved, adn some other scenario gear.



RAP4 Versian 4
7 Magazines
Tac Vest that holds 6 mags (Blackhawk?)
MARPAT cammies (Real deal, not immitation)
New boots

I estimate it all around 900 bucks. I know for a fact that its all goign to cost less becuase I can get a major deal on the first two on my list.

I would love to get an M16A1 rap, and thenI'd probably just get OD utilities and use my current LC-2.. That would be the ultimate vietman scenario outfit.. I've alreayd got jungle boots that would go well.

Usually if a RAP4-5 sells on Ebay it sells pretty low, apparantly either most people don't know what they are looking at, or they don't retain value very well.

If you are going for the vietnam-era look then overlook the MARPAT, seriously, especially since you are not a Marine yet. (if you come across a real devil dog in the paintball field and you are wearing MARPAT, well, let's just say you been forewarned)
Look for tigerstriped BDU's if you can still find it.

The T68 will shoot .68 but with a hopper. Other wise they shoot 40 cal with a magazine for realism.

I want some MARPAT, its the best camouflage out. I can get it straight from a Marine buddy of mine. I can see why wearing patches and dress uniforms around and claiming to be a Marine, but I am just a humble paintballer.

You must've misread my post, I would like to go with the vietman look, but they don't make an M16A1 upper for RAp's, just the M4, SR-16, and M16A2.

I can get a RAP package even cheaper then the ones that go on ebay for $450. I've gotten a couple quotes from two different RAP4 dealers who offer me any RAP equipment at a discounted price.

And bulldog, do you know what a RAP is? Find me one on pbn. ITs not some sleezy A5 with a bunch of plastic on it. RAP markers are full scale, full action (meaning they eject a plastic or brass shell every shot, have no visible CO2 tank, and use magazines, not hoppers).

I'm not sure if I want to start saving for a real rifle. For 900 bucks I could pick up an M1... I can't own one now in Massachusetts, but I could give the money to my dad and have him buy it for me and keep it in NH.

However the next paintball marker I buy is a RAP.

Yes, I do know what a RAP is Alpha. I've seen them in real life. I've shot one. I also have read up their website. The pbn bst was just a suggestion..there's tons and tons of guns. Just a suggestion...calm down Super Sargeant.

PBN is mostly dominated by speedball gear. the very few scenario markers you'll find on there are not RAP's. ITs a safe bet for me to say that tehres only 4 or 5 RAPs on PBN, and they're probably not for trade anymore.

I can get a RAP4LE for like 400 bucks.. Theres a few independedt dealers on another forum who can hook me up

Thi sis postponed until I save up a K, then I'm bankign the money for my 1911 when I turn 18. Then I'm probably going to need a car. So this is on hold for now, but in a few months I'm going to get a steady job... So I'll have an income.

Man that sucks you have to save up for a gun when you turn 18. When I'm 18 I'm getting my dad's Springfield 03. Mint condition, made in 1918. Then when I turn 21, I get his Usp 45.

In 5 years from now, I can see myself having a small room in my basement.. Locked with a giant padlock of course... And when you step in and turn on teh lights...

M16's tot eh left, AK's to the rights, berettas adn glocks and pistols adn rifles and shotguns...

And a small section dedicated to smithing and Paintball. I want to go into a career of gunsmithing. Maybe a small shop in my own house or something...

But in the Marine Corps, I'm going for MOS 2111... Gotta study up.

Move to Idaho. I'm getting the hell out of California. I don't know about hunting but there's a lot of cool people in Idaho. When I went there this winter break I saw a lot of shotguns in the back of trucks.

OMG, you saw shotguns in the back of peoples trucks? Welcome to Vermont kid. Everyone in my town has guns on there gun racks on the back windows of there trucks. My stepfather has a gun rack in his truck, 4 of my friends have them, all of Mount Holly hicks have them...and I think everyone owns at least 6 guns each....hell, my house alone houses 21 guns. 4 pistols and 17 rifles. My family is part hick. I have the most guns out of all my friends. I also have the best shot out of all my friends...believe it or not, I have never shot a gun with a scope...2 of my guns have scopes, but I dont like scopes, so I dont use them...the rest have iron sights....we also got most of our guns from my grandpa in Mass, cuz of there strict gun rules, he just said screw it, and gave the guns to my family. Pretty sweet.....
Also, almost everyone here has a Toyota with a wooden bed, and at least 3 different colors on the exterior....funny stuff...
