Can you attach a red dot sight to your stryker cybrid paintball gun?

No. It does not have any rails, nor is it accurate enough to need one.

How do you loosen your paintball gun triger?

It depends on which marker you have and which trigger is on it. Typically the manual will tell you how to adjust it

How fast do you tracel in freefall during tandem skydiving?

User Avatar
The velocity of a skydiver is largely governed by weight and drag. Obviously both can vary quite a bit. The typical skydiver flying in "belly" or prone position reaches the terminal velocity of about 110mph to 150mph (typically 130mph) after about 1000ft of freefall. This equates to a rate of approximately 1000ft for every 5.5 seconds. Tandems would fall at about twice that velocity if it wasn't for a drogue chute that is deployed by the tandem instructor shortly after leaving the aircraft to increase the drag on the tandem pair. This is needed because there is about twice the weight and essentially the same drag because the student is laying directly below the instructor. Similarly to the situation with an individual skydiver, tandem freefall rates can vary quite a bit. Many camera fliers wear small wings under their arms to allow them a higher range of adjustability in their fall rates. The rate of change of velocity "g" caused by earths gravity is a constant in a vacuum. But we have variables such as air resistance which may change due to change in air density and the surface area of an object falling through the air. Skydivers utilize that principle through adjustments in body position, using baggy jumpsuits to increase drag, streamline jumpsuits to reduce it, wings as mentioned previously and lead shot to increase weight. At the start of the freefall, gravity "g" is the overwhelming force as the low velocity produces minimal drag but as the velocity increases due to the acceleration g then so does drag and the rate of acceleration reduces to the point where it reaches zero. This is the so called terminal velocity and is the point where the force g and the drag are equal and opposite forces. Now the fun begins. Because forces on a skydiver are in constant flux due to intentional or unintentional changes in body attitude (position) and changes in air density due to air temperature changes and altitude, the net force on a skydiver may approximate zero but there is always some out of balance force somewhere. Even gravity changes as we approach the ground, but by an infinitesimal amount. Even mass m is affected by v velocity. Unless you were skydiving at a reasonable factor of the speed of light, this may be ignored. Ever tried to balance a knife on its edge ?

Is a mike Crum skateboard a good skateboard?

User Avatar
I assume its a world industries board? They used to be top of the range boards until they sold out * years ago and started making cheaper boards. the quality of the board is not what it used to be and the market for them has fell, and so you are better off going with another company if your looking for a great deck. If you just want a starter board then it's probably fine.

How do you shoot a paintball gun accurately?

User Avatar
Paintballs are one of the worst ballistic projectiles you can create, they are a liquid filled gelatin sphere with a seam that rolls through the air. The easiest way to get better accuracy is to use better paintballs. Higher quality paintballs (and provided you don't keep them sitting around - if you're storing them - for too long) will be more round without dimples and have a sleeker seam on them. This means they will fly better. After that, your barrel also affects accuracy, but only to an extent (don't expect miracles - and despite all the marketing that goes into these barrels, rifled barrels DON'T help make it more accurate). As far as aiming goes, that is mostly up to the user but most people aim down the side of the marker not over the top, especially with so many center feed designs out there. Aiming down the side of the marker gives you the barrel as a line of reference and also keeps your head lower to prevent getting hit. It takes practice but it is typically faster than aiming over the top and keeps you in a lower profile. One last note on accuracy, at maximum range (about 150ft) the BEST case scenario you can have is a grouping the size of a trash can lid, that's shooting really REALLY good paint and a great barrel, typical players see grouping closer to the size of a truck tire. So really its just shoot as much paint into the area of your target until one of them hits your target.

How do you wear a paintball harness?

User Avatar
Typical harnesses if made by BT, Tippmann, Spec Ops, or NXe are worn over the shoulders. These harnesses should fit similar to a backpack and should cover the majority of your backside. In the front of your body should be straps, typicall containing an assortment of pockets to put tools, lube, and cronograph. Other harnesses typically used to speed ball are worn around your hips. The straps will fit across your stomach. Keep in mind that the pods (that hold the paintball) should be upside down. This is allows the pod to fall into your hand during the play of game, which in turn allows one to reload faster.

What is the best paintball barrel for woodsball?

User Avatar
There is no difference between equipment for speedball or woodsball, all barrels will give you the same useable range and will shoot paint at around 280fps. If you are just looking for a good barrel I suggest the J&J ceramic 1-piece or CP 1-piece barrels, both are around $35 USD and will give you improvement over a stock barrel. Anything from 12"-16" is personal preference, longer barrels beyond 16" are just added weight for no reason and barrels shorter than 12" get louder and less efficient but between 12 and 16 there is no noticeable difference in performance.

Why does your spyder sonix paintball gun never stay cocked?

Most likely the striker o-ring is broken or needs to be lubricated. It could also be that the sear is work, or the mainspring could be worn. Take it to a local paintball store to have it looked at.

In short the A1 Fly. However there are many markers that are as good, or arguably better than the angel line. Planet Eclipse, Dye, Dangerous Power and DLX come to mind as guns I would purchase over an Angel.

Can dry fire damage a paintball gun hurt?

User Avatar
For the most part no, it will do nothing to markers as everything will function exactly as it would otherwise. Some markers (like angels) will have problems dry firing as they use back pressure from a paintball to cycle properly but putting a towel or a barrel swab in the barrel will do the same thing. Automags with a level 10 bolt are about the only markers that should not be dry fired as a portion of the bolt can go flying out the barrel without a paintball in place

What is capped ramping in paintball?

User Avatar
Ramping is where you pull the trigger at a low ball per second rate, like 5bps, and once it is hit and continued, it will ramp to the "cap" or maximum bps, like 13.

What is uncapped ramping in paintball?

User Avatar
There cannot be uncapped ramping. Ramping must have a maximum bps to ramp to. All ramping in capped, for instance at 13 bps. Once you get to the required, lower bps, say 5 bps, then it sends it in to a 15 bos auto mode for as long as you go 5 bps.
