    Wow that loader holds 50 ROUNDS! Impressive. I remember when 300-400 shots could last you 2-3 games.

    I remember when 3 of my friends and I used to split a 2500 round case of proball and it would last 3 months.

    I'd say early 90's? We use to call it ProRock because you would beat people into submission with it, it was so thick shelled you could cut a hole in the brush to torture someone on the other side.

    Pro rock. Never heard it called that. Fitting though. I hated playing against people shooting it. Man it would hurt. But yes. It would shoot right through the brush. No concerns of it busting on a lief. Or you for that matter.

    when I played in the late mid 90's in phx, I remember paint being 125-150 a case. the indoor field had a vending machine with bags of balls from 25-200. 100 balls was 5.00. they were blue and yellow shell

    You guys all seem to like the Rambo loader..........for me I got my eyes on Dave's sweater. That would gains some points at a sweater and egg nog party during the holidays


    I'll have to dig through my stuff and post an old catalog from PMI. Tbaggin reminded me of how I got my family's buisness into paintball to lower my cost on paint. It was so expensive in the mid 90's, so as a way to confront a very expensive hobby, I convinced my brother-in-law to allow me to submit his business license and FFL number so he could be a dealer. That's another funny part of history, PMI wouldn't talk to you if you didn't have a FFL#.

    First one to make some white "RAMBO LOADER" hopper decals will be taking some of my $$$

  23. #23
    In my first year of paintball, I bought a 100rd ziploc bag of Nelson or Line SI Stingers for $7.00 and I would end a day with leftovers.

    I bought my bushmaster with the "Ammo box" included but, I quickly upgraded to the Viewloader (early one with the 10rd feed and, the windowed door, still have it).

    I like how in the video, the guy with the Sniper talks about how paintball would essentially become more 'tactical' with the guns looking more like real guns and have similar functionality (i.e. semi/full auto).
