Paintball
So I've never handled a paintball gun in my life... I was donated one last week along with some balls. I have a bit of experience with all things airgun related, but not sure exactly what is different that I need to worry NOT to do when applying the experience over to paintball. Maintenance wise.

I'm not planning to game with it, more or less evict the pest animals around here instead of using a pellet gun and needing to dispose remains. Plus, tagging them, il know which ones come back.

in my village they have construct a paintball place ( a guy not in the center of the village like me )
and since 2 years when i walk near to that , imagine what i hear , we have many hunters too but opk it's cool

i have near to finish my second FPV car with a paintball gun on it for play with them ^^

lot of solution , but for what you want it's semm to be a CO2 system ( gaz) the best options
personnaly for what i want to do i choose to make an AEG , i just need a new roll of PETG for print

200euros a system AEG
find grabcad , after you can export files as STL and Gcode with solidwork or others .

Basic gun handling... When taking the gun apart make sure it's unloaded and the safety is on, and keep you finger off the damn trigger.

I've had a 12joule hdr50 purely for fun for a year and I've noticed literally no difference maintenance wise. Just keep your barrel clean and use white lithium grease on any moving parts in the mechanism and you'll be fine imo.

I'm guessing you already have barrel squeegees, brush's etc for your other guns, if not you'll definitely need these for any balls that burst prematurely. Oh and you can skip paintballs altogether and go the rubber bullet route if you don't fancy pissing about with paint.

Should add I don't recommend shooting the pests with the rubber bullets but if you fancy some plinking it's by far the better option.

freeze some paintballs and then shoot them still frozen... dont shoot humans with frozen paintballs

There's the difference. Most airguns(not hpa\pcp) use pelloil, or silicone oil for some parts. Figure I should skip the pelloil since it damages certain orings, and catch fire possibly.
