Essential Paintball Supplies
After you’ve bought the basic paintball equipment such as the paintball marker, mask, and safety devices, there are some important paintball supplies you need to consider before you really start playing a game of paintball. These little accessories and supplies can come in quite handy if you want to put yourself in an advantageous position when playing with other opponents. Paintball Gun Oil: Paintball markers/guns tend to weather after constant use. In order to prevent this or slow down the progress, use paintball gun oil. The oil also helps operate your gun smoothly which is a prerequisite if you want to win in a game of paintball. However, remember to buy good quality oil from a dealer, which might or might not be specified by the manufacturer.
Spare Batteries: If you use a paintball gun that a hopper that runs on batteries, remember to always double check if you have extras with you before the game starts. It can be very inconvenient if you run out of fuel while out at the field. Buy high quality batteries that will last for a few good hours. Gun Manual and Allen Wrenches: You’re going to need to disassemble your paintball marker once in a while, in order to clean or fix it. You should always have the gun manual and an Allen wrench with you so that if, in an emergency, you need to take apart your gun, there shouldn’t be any hassles of not having a diagram, or a tool to help you work faster.
Replacement Mask Lens: You can get yourself into big trouble if the lens of your paintball mask lens crack and you don’t a replacement. This is because most tournament organizers will not allow you to play without proper safety equipment. It is also unsafe, so always have extra lens handy in case of emergencies. Also remember to never use masks with lens that’s been overused, or is wearing out. Squeegees: The barrel or breach of the paintball gun may collect dust or paintball debris. Use squeegees to clean these out. A clean and well-lubed barrel is essential for the smooth operation of the marker so, it’d be a great idea if you could carry an extra squeegee before joining a game. Barrel covers: Barrel covers such as barrel plugs and barrel socks prevents accidentally fired paintballs to cause any harm by blocking exit. A barrel sock is more effective in reducing the possibility of the safety equipment being detached from the marker/gun barrel. Always carry one to ensure that no one gets hurt.
Extra Parts such as O-rings & Cupseals: Paintball guns can malfunction due to small, seemingly unimportant but vital parts such as the O-rings and Cupseals, which may become defective in the middle of a game. Do not let your game suffer because you forget to extra parts.
