How to Use a Paintball Gun aka Marker | Paintball


My name is Mike Peverill. I’m here at Pev’s Paintball Park in Aldie,
Virginia. I’ve been playing paintball nearly 30 years. I’ve played professional paintball with numerous
pro teams all over the world. This facility here was built from the ground
up for paintball, kind of like a paintball Disney Land. Our website is www.pevs.com. Hopefully you can come out and visit us sometime. This is the Tippmann model 98 paintball marker,
a basic paintball marker but the workhorse in the paintball industry. It is easy to use and simple. It is just like any paintball gun, they fairly
simple to use, unless you start using electronic paintball guns because you are going to have
to learn the code, the buttons to press, the combination to activate the gun what firing
mode. But this gun we don`t have that, it`s the
basic get out and play paintball, you have your barrel, you have your hopper which is
were you store your paint, it`s the feeder. The you have your air system, take like for
example Ninja air compressed air system, and you screw it onto the gun. Now you hear the chamber, it filled up with
air which means that it`s ready to go. So now the paintball gun is considered ready
to fire. Now what we do to be able to fire the paintball
gun, there is a cocking nob on one side which depends on what paintball gun it is. You just pull it back, press the safety button
in so it’s on fire, and pull the trigger. It’s ready to go. Now safety wise, every time we do use a loaded
gun, always use a barrel cover, always. Every where you go it’s a barrel blocking
device, spare cover, barrel condom – whatever you wanna call them. People have numerous names for them, but it’s
a safety device, so if you accidentally pull the trigger, the ball gets caught inside the
barrel condom in here and stops it from hitting anybody else. It’s a safety device, always use a barrel
condom on the gun. When you are done firing your gun, you wanna
put the barrel condom on, and clear the chamber, hold the cocking nob and slightly let it slide
forward, and put it on safety. Now the gun can’t fire, so if you accidently
forgot to put it on safety and you pull the trigger, nothing is going to happen because
you released the cocking nob. Again, pull the cocking nob back to fire. If you are done, hold the cocking nob with
your finger, pull the finger slightly and slide the cocking nob forward till you hear
the click. Done, it wont fire a gun closed at the breach. Put your barrel cover on the end of the gun,
and now you are in safe mode, and you are ready to go. You’re ready to play, just pour the paintballs
in, close the lid, done, and once you pulled the cocking nob you are ready to fire.
