It's about time? Right? (Between gas and other guns)

 

This forum's users seem particularly constructive and accepting of HPA discussion and not prone to hysteria, I think it would be a positive addition.

I only have an AEG but still find it fascinating to read some of the technical problems and advice from the gear-heads. HPA is a valid sub set. Maybe have one for springers too ;)

My only concern is if we have enough volume to fill a whole sub, the current technical subs are all quite low volume currently.

Just ask HPA users to post their setups and the forum will be full in no time.

I've started an ongoing thread for my HPA build, I'm sure people will end up chipping in on it :)

Just because something is in the minority, doesn't mean that it should not be represented.


To make your gun more accurate, you must first adjust the nut behind the trigger.

Be nice to collect threads on subjects such as "where to fill your tank".

I'd like a separate HPA subforum so I don't have to wade through all the "mah daytona am orsum" threads every time I open the site.

Yes but I am sure that the mods would love to spend a quick 5 minutes moving all the other HPA related threads into the new subforum. :)

I think a subforum would be good, keep the other threads cleaner.

Hey, I voted yes. Was just in response to Lozart's giggle.

I think it’s worth having a sub section for it. There’s a number of members on this forum running HPA, all with different experience and all with their own ways of fixing an issue. Think it’s worth having because it’ll be a direct point for HPA users to go and for those who are possibly looking to come down the HPA route it’s a place for them to go and have a read about other members thoughts, problems, builds etc. also a place to ask questions as well.

Sent a large PM to Devastator highlighting this need and the 30 threads (excluding sales) we have that warrant a unique subforum.

 

But I think we can agree that a HPA area in the classifieds forum is unwarranted?

Well, air is a gas so I guess we already have a sales sub-forum for them. Kind of agreed though - most of the items are just too highly priced to change hands as often as other stuff.

Also, we should include CO2 in this somewhere as essentially all HPA systems are also capable of running CO2 as well.

 

How about 'key atmospheric gas gun forum'?

I've always thought CO2 was already under the gas heading? At least the bulbs.

HPA and CO2 are still going to be hard to find unless there is a sub forum for them (or we get the search engine improved).

Fair point. Plenty more CO2 pistols out there than CO2 rifles.
