I think you hit the nail on the head here, it's the same thing with semi auto pistols, people see them and get this mental image of flying over bunkers John Woo style only to find out it takes a lot of time and punishment to get even remotely good at it. I can only imagine this is magnified with SC guns.

I find pistols worse, as I need a stock to shoulder (or tank).

I think I'm just more nostalgic when going to a pump event meant you'd be surrounded by stick feeds, not hoppers. Come to find out, I enjoy hanging out with the player using the gun, more than I care about what they shoot.

Maybe I'll have to get in on those East Cost SC games someday.

You can do that with a pump-pistol if you're tweaked enough...

On topic though, there are a lot of nice SC guns in the "Rare, Old" section too. I just picked up a nice 007 in there (willpower @ nought)!

On the UK forums, where SC is pretty unknown, you see an incredible amount of TiPX's and T8's for sale, and I reckon it's for the same reason as what PistolRogue had to say; people just can't be bothered dedicating the time to learning something challenging when (in our case) they can just sit at the back and hose.
