I just play better with pump. I getter eliminated more with a semi, I play too loose and hang around the bunkers, with pump I play as tight as I can.

Feels I hit better too, with pump I often can shoot peoples barrels and foots.
Itīs just a feeling, Iīve tested with same barrel+paint and my DM11 is every bit as consistant than my J2L.

I like the challenge, saving a ton of dough does not hurt either. Being on a tight budget, playing pump still allows me to get out and play every once in awhile.

I play Pump during Scenarios because it's easier to move around a large feild and acheive objectives with a PGP and 100 rounds of paint than it is with an entire Semi or Electro setup plus 1000 rounds of paint on your back.

I also play pump against Newbies to level the playing feild and to prevent overshooting to ensure a good time. but I play with an RT Mag against everyone else to defend myself from overshooting.

Ha. That is the only time I break out a semi. PEER PRESSURE!!!! Sometimes, it is fun to waste a bunch of paint (usually old or mid grade) and shoot a ton of people with your friends. It's also a blast to brush the dust off of the old Angel or cocker and rock it at the field.

I usually play pump, shoot the best paint that I can get my hands on, and have a relaxing day of it.

I played with both this weekend and probably shot an equal amount of people, the difference was 3 bags of paint, or 150 balls. Lots of fun both ways. No need to limit yourself to just one style.

Growing up, I always chose the to be on the weaker of two teams if given a choice. I would rather be forced to try harder and lose than be on the team that dominated and rolled over the the other team. I think choosing to play pump is just an extension of that mindset. It forces me to try harder.

As said before, pump all the way. The One Truth Of Paintball still stands : A break is a break, and it only takes one to get an elimination.

I find it requires more movement, better shooting accuracy, and far, far more emphasis on taking good shots rather than laying paint on a barricade in hopes that someone looks out at the wrong moment.

Not to mention that playing with your own money instead of Mommy and Daddy's means that dumping a case or two of paint in an afternoon just isn't happening.

Something that makes me sad watching rec speedball where I play is just how piss-poor ramping electros make players. Round after round of teams who take one bunker then drop 4-600 balls per person at each other in hopes of a lucky elimination. Not my style at all.

I play mag-fed, semi-pistol exclusively. Not only do I find it to be the most fun, I also shoot less paint than I do with a pump. I tend to double tap, get the elimination and move on whereas with my old trusty SL68 I'd have to pump before the followup often missing the shot and then extending the exchange and that's when the ball didn't just roll out while I was improving my position.

Open class pump holds no appeal for me. I can auto trigger my hopper empty but what's the point?

I've considered purchasing a stock class marker. I think stock class would be fun if only there were local games.

I've found the solution to that is to just go play stock class. Some of the people playing today are younger than my markers. But I get at least one or two people asking to try out one of them for a game every time I bring them out.

You probably won't dominate unless you're really damn good, but consider a concept my friend came up with back in the days when Angels first started proliferating, called Stock Class Revenge.

You see, it costs ~5 cents for a paintball. So every time that marker fires, they just shot a nickel at you. Most days, I can manage over a couple games to get more than I spend in paint, air, and field fees in a month fired at me.

I'm not really interested in playing open class games with a stock class marker. I'd like to play stock class though.

I've been playing since '86 and I feel a bit nostalgic now and then. It'd be fun if people moved between shots instead of hiding behind bunkers while opfor shoots ropes.
