Topic: My collection going on Ebay
Replies: 1

Sadly enough, it's time to retire. Time to start saving for college, and my soaker collection is going to be the first to go...

On Ebay now is my treasured CPS 2000 Mk1 and a Monster X I snagged from a toy store years ago.

I'll be slowly posting my collection.. A new one every couple of days.

Keeping a few was the intention at first, but with last year having a cps 2000 mk2 go for somewhere around 100 or so I forget what the exact value was my mk 1 is simply to tempting to resist. I will be keeping my trusty 1700 and my catapult... Remind me in the future to post the plans for that, alu...

Well, I checked back in all those months ago, but with 11th grade class work (AP classes, Honors, et cetera) I really haven't found the time to be active. When the new soaker season hits full swing I'll be selling off my collection of soakers save one, my CPS 1700 that some of you may know, I think...

Seeing as it is now mid-october (a little late, but no matter) it is that time of year to again go hunting for the cheap water guns that stores put on clearance. I just picked up 6 guns from KBToys and Big 5 for pretty much pennies (I think I spend a total of around 30-40 dollars) for a Cps 1700, 1...

The prices for some of the more rare guns, such as a Cps 2000 mk. 1 really is rediculous. But, since the prices are so high come next summer I am probably going to sell about 60 or so of my guns when the new season hits.

The shot time on 20x for any blaster is pretty short, except for maybe a 2000 mk.1 because that has a larger pressure chamber, but that is just the nature of 20x, large output, low shot time.

Sandals are my choice for the casual hose vs soaker fight, so for me they do have some uses. And for the voice activated headsets, well most current walkie-talkie types have headset/headphone jacks. I don't remember offhand where i picked up the headset but it should say what exactly you need in th...

Agreed, although it does depend on some key factors, I.E. length, terrain, and how serious said engagement is. For some no shoes at all might be appropriate and for other sandals might work. In most of the ones I participate in the battleground is in heavily wooded forest type terrain so I prefer c...

Hmm... This could turn out to be a long list. To start I have one of those 2-in-1 cammleback water storage packs/camping daypack so I dont carry any more water then that (it holds 6 liters). In the pack part of the backpack I generally carry a camoflouge tarp, an extra tan tee-shirt (the kind you s...

Wow, I just made a topic about this whole ebay thing before I saw this one... Oh well. I remember back when Cps 2000 Mk.1's were 30 dollars at Toys 'R' Us way back when I picked up mine. Anyhow agreed, 200 is far to much for a 2000 even a Mk.1, maybe I should sell all my old blasters and fix my car...

Let's see... After I dusted all of mine off from the year and a half of storage I still go with my trusty 2000. This is of course being said without having tried any of the new season that Larami put out, but so far from what I have seen and heard it does not seem all that impressive.

I have seen 4 Cps 2000's on there already, 3 Mk.1's and a Mk.2. and 3 Cps 2500's. Anyone else notice all of these rare blasters bei...
