I started with a pump way back. I like just the simplicity of playing pump, Going out on the feild and playing hopper ball with no concerns of running out of paint. its just a nice compact light fun way to play paintball.
I have owned and still own many Semi Auto markers but still play pump most as i find it the most fun. Cost is not a huge factor for me as i usually buy a case no matter what i shooting and split it with my sister. We can usually make that last a day. But i still just enjoy shooting pump.
