I say we kill all soccer moms. OH, and we can't leave out the people who think "paintball encourages war"....go shove it.

If I buy a pump, that will be it! For $229 you get a low-pressure, extremely consitant marker, with a decent barrel and 50,000 shots per 16oz tank! I want to see one first, if it lives up to its ad.

Hank Hill would be proud! I wouldn't think it is any more dangerous then other compressed gas in a tank. Sure it is a fuel and not inert like HPA or Nitrogen, but if it functions properly and doesn't leak you should be OK. If you puncture the tank your in trouble, but that is the same for any compressed gas. Imagine the smell of the indicator they put in propane on the field if a ton of these were firing. I wonder if they will make a semi auto? Throw a cyclone on that puppy and Tippmann could really be on to something all mechanical for the bumpkin woodsballer. Great to take camping... Remote trips to places without fill stations were you need Propane tanks anyway for cooking/heating/light ect.

Alright, I've done a little more research. My opinion is now that I am actually considering buying one. I've been wanting to pick up a pump for a while now, and this might be the one. 50,000 shots is flat out nuts. $3-$8 for a canister! Maybe paintball isn't going to get more expensive. So pump-world, here I come.

^ Well, those things are just in the artwork now anyways Laughing

Just like you said demus, Hank Hill would be proud, its part of Propane and Propane accesories.
I told my dad about it but he thinks im fine with just one gun, so I couldnt get one till I move out, I told my friends and they asked why I was even lookin at a pump, they think Im too triggerhappy for one. I think I could do it if I was sniping and the 50000 shots is amazing. I have probably 10 of those tanks in my garage (camp stove, torch, hot plate dohickey thingy, extras)
I could have lots of fun in my backyard. Definately something I will be waiting for, by the way does anybody have a guess to where they derived the name? My guess (learned this from King of the Hill) is the molecule thing....C3 H8, (3 carbon atoms 8 Hydrogen atoms) Just my guess. Cool

I think you just buy a new tank when it runs out. I wonder, if when you run out of air, if the propane tanks fart Very Happy
I still think it would be great, and thanks for that link, that video was pretty cool and there was alot of info.

Actionvillage has them in stock.

For sale.

I am amazed beyond belief that Tippmann is willing to sell those things.
