On behalf of Expert Village, I am Dan Foss
and I am here to tell you about paintball. This marker works on a seven to eight hundred
PSI, that is what we need in order for it to fire. We are talking about more like three
hundred feet per second, of course, coming out of the box this will probably do three
hundred fifty feet per second. And we want to make sure that you guys understand that
you do not want to be playing with a marker that is shooting that hot, you want to do
a radar or chrono graphing and dial them down to two seventy-five, because of the goggles.
The goggles are only rated for three hundred twenty-five feet per second. And if you shoot
any hotter than that you could crack the goggles, and you only have two eyes. Those paintballs,
those point sixty-eight caliber paintballs are harder than your eye. We have done some
demonstrations with eggs out there, hard-boiled and soft-boiled and we have cracked them.
So think about it when this marker is being fired. There are a couple of options that
we have for propellant. One most everybody has is CO2 or liquid CO2. As liquid CO2 gets
warm, it forms a gas, and a gas is what fires the marker. Sometimes when you are out there
playing, you start out there in the morning and it is cool, the liquid CO2 you set your
velocity with the chrono and it is firing at two seventy-five and a couple hours later,
it is warmer, the gas has been able to build more into a heavier gas in the marker which
means that it is going to firing at a hotter rate. So you need to rechono periodically
as the day wears on to keep the marker down where it is not going to hurt anybody.
