+1. If you suck at pump you suck at paintball. IMO, playing pump helps the player discover the weaknesses in his game that might have been hiding behind his space gun.

Because I have yet to play a game where I felt like it was a burden to play with a pump. So I only play with them, its more fun that way.

I play pump for several reasons:

1. the walkons are generally less intimidated by it at first glance compared to the space guns. They dont fret about getting lit up. " No, its just a pump. he can only shoot once every time he pumps it. "

2. Its cheaper and im poor

3. Has improved my game alot.

4. The challenge and the reward. There is no feeling like the one you get when you enter a speedball tourney and use a pump and dome someone off the break. Especially when everyone is asking if you are joking.
