Hopper story

my first day playing paintball (woodball) i was playing 3 on 3 with a group of my friends. i found a cool bunker made of thick branches and my team leader yelled go. i was sitting up on my knees (i hadn't figured out the fine art of ducking yet) and my friend popped out from behind this tree and shot my once in the finger, once in the visor and as i was ducking on the middle of my hopper. i walked out toward my base and i hear "Dude! ur hopper is busted though!" i looked at and sure enough there was a .68 calibur hole in hy hopper!! apperently the kid who had shot me was frustrated with the velocity and screwed the bolt on his Spyder Sonix all the way in! i was walking back in awe of just the sport of paintball itself! was i safe?? stupid newbie questions so anyway my team mate ran out of paintballs so i tipped my hopper hole into his lid and gave him the extra shots to win the game

hey

HEY, actually he's probably not lying.
-I was at my field one time ,and a kid got a hole about 1 1/2 inches wide, by 1 inch high right on the side of the hopper. the kid said "it was the kid with the angel that shot it" but hey, we all know that no matter what your gun is, they all shoot the same fps if you want them to. Well, i imagine the guy must have had frozen paintballs or something, because i couldn't believe my eyes.
iv'e also had an old sticker shot off the side of my hopper. But the sticker was old and peeling, so that kinda explains it..

The older hoppers get brittle with age, unlike the new polycarbonate ones. If it was an older hopper, it can happen. Don't start calling people liers without at least doing some research and knowing something of what you're talking about. Some types of paintballs are harder than others, coughmarbscough, and it has been known to happen.

well that day when my hopper got shot through it was really cold. there was an inch or two of snow on the ground at the time but my team leader said it would be fine. it wasnt an old hopper tho. it was my first time playing and i had a brand new viewloader. his paint was probably frozen.

Just a tip for newbs that might be reading this.

Don't you EVER freeze your paint. I gurantee you, if any of us veterans find out about it, you'll have heck to pay... That's unsafe, and not cool at all...

ya

last weekend i was playing paintball at my friends house, its sweet they have old cars and stuff we use for bunkers,but anyway i was in a bunker and 2 of the other team are stickin their heads up from behind a car.So i fired about 4 fast shots and hit my one of their hoppers.and it made a hole in it.My paint mightve been frozen (it was about 15 degrees out) or it just mightve been his old B.E. hopper.(p.s. my velocity was under 300 fps)

hey ya'll,
my friend's viewloader hopper got hit and it made a hole. the plastic went into the hopper and sat there for a few games (hes not very observent) and the plastic peice started to block the feed of balls into his gun. it was funny. but the weather was about 60 degrees, and we all cronoed about 250-280 fps. the hopper wasn't old or anything. it just happened.

Well, that's probably why the non motorized hoppers are like 5 bux at the most, cuz it's not much to replace.

yikes

I just worked 9 hours to afford my 12V. I don't want to have to blow 3 more hours to afford new shells. Just imagine if that happened to a mask... This weekend I am going to tell each person in our group to bring 8 bucks next time so we can get a chronograph.
