lots of pump tourneys are allowing semi pistols with small mags. you can get a spring-fed nelson pistol that fires autotrigger just as fast as the T8, so its no big difference. (edit: above post even better point. T8 is hugely outgunned by a T2 or a Falcon)
hope you do great with the pistols bud!! winning with a pistol is the awesomest winning ever.
dude your last name is Falcon? you will definitely be victorious
