I have two qualified* guns, two definites** and an honorable mention. Most of them were before HPA was common place.

*1. Automag + CO2 = freeze up.
*2. Autococker + CO2 + No one who knows how to time one = POS.
**3. Sniper 3. For those don't know, it was WORR Games' answer to the Phantom--pump wrapped AROUND the handle. Which brings me to an honorable mention:

My original Phantom. I grew up shooting and hunting with a pump shotgun. As a result, an under barrel pump feels natural to me. An around the barrel pump puts my wrist at (for me) an awkward angle. I hated the Phantom's pump. Once I bought a custom undercocking pump, it's all good.

**4. Q-loader. I tried. I really did. It just never worked right for more than 1/2 of a tube before it stopped. Then a hose would break lose and it'd suddenly work perfectly--spraying the rest of the tube all over. I even cut myself on one of the wire thingies, had to get a tetnus shot AND still kept trying to make it work.

*With the advent of HPA, I think an Automag would be just fine.

*HPA + Autococker + Someone who knows how to tune one = Mechanical Heaven. The who tuned my fully mechanical tactical autococker did such a good job people thought I was using an Eblade.

Forgiveness is divine but never pay full price for late pizza.

and to stay on topic, the luxe as well.. Always seems to be in the hands of an annoying player, i.e. overshooting.
As far as using the Silver Bullet one of my first markers years ago.. wasn't even packaged with the right battery.. Nightmare for new players.

My old t2 was my most hated gun for a long time. Always having issues from dirt getting in the hammer tube. If it wasn't so muddy all the time back home it'd been great or even getting hit in the loader sometimes was enough to get it gummed up

All time most hated. Dye guns. They take too much maintenance and tinkering

Im pretty sure that the disdain for space dildos in general has little to do with the markers themselves. It has to do with the fact that they are being carried by teenagers who didn't pay for their own gear, and who don't have any trigger control. Nothing causes my blood pressure to go up more than being bonus balled by a 15 year old with a space gun. I work my tail off to be able to play, and these kids parents treat the fields as over priced weekend daycare for rug rats.

And of course they want ME to stop doing the chrono work and fix their brand new spyder for them...

I keep a stack of Tippmanns in my garage and just tell them to go get one of mine, and leave their spyder in their car.

So annoying.
I've had 2 Spyders..had no leaks in them whatsoever, and they both worked fine in the cold. I would take one any day over a Tippmann, especially if its a Spyder clone that Azodin makes.

I have never been real keen on electros. I don't like not being able to see the physical relationship between parts... makes it harder to fix a problem I can't see with my own eyes.

As for mechanicals: i'd say mags or palmer's semi autos. Don't know why, just never had much luck with either breed.

I can't say I hate anything, as in my 12+ years of playing, I have only ever actually played with a 68 Special, an old semi-auto rental (one of the inline blowbacks that wasn't a Tippmann back in say...98), my M98, an A-5, and my Viking.

I will say however, that I have an uneasiness towards Cockers. Back in 2000-2003 my friend got one. I played, he'd stay and tinker (And then get begged into teching someone else's marker....). Thing rarely seemed to work right.

Otherwise, I have no other experience, but I will say that I am not a fan of pretty much any current markers based on their looks alone. I can count the markers that look okay to me on one hand: Mini, Axe, and Mokal Aura

Yes. I am crazy.
