Yeah ive though about running a mini with a 13ci and rotor as a back up for retreats but carrying it would kind kill my play style...only way i see of doing it would be to carry with a chalker quick release harness to my spot, disconnect it and set it down until needed. I'll probably still opt for a pistol though, its more my style. I'm doing a extreme 24hr game in october this year and trying to find the right balance between mobility and firepower. I'll have to carry in everything ill need for the entire 24 hrs with no paint or air refills. So far im leaning towards first strike rifle of some sort and a pistol and hopefully someone else will take up the heavy gunner role so i can stay light.
