In my opinion, not a "primary use" marker though. (just my opinion)

They can be had in great shape for pretty reasonable prices, so it's not unreasonable to pick one up just to use when the mood hits.

My Phantom and my Blazer are the two guns that always come to the field with me.

Im not a big fan of using Pump pistols especially PGPs but I do own a couple and do use them. I'll always keep acouple in the stable for no real reason. These days you can get PGPs for rather cheap...my advise would be to pick one up and see if you like it.

PGP paintball fights, with other PGP users, is a blast! Other than that, I find that because of the awkward size (small) and the characteristic sheridan pump-stroke (quite "hard"), it is a difficult marker to use as a primary. They are still fun to play with though.

On a side note, for some reason, the little kiddies always seem to get scared if you strap one to your side or leg. I think its because they play too many video games.

I might get another marker, but that's another matter
Whoa man be carefull with that kind of talk on this site, befere you know it the life will be sucked from your wallet and you'll drown in a sea of paintball guns.

That having been said. PGPS are fun, not my cup of tea, mainly becuase of the short pump handle. Other sheridans are great. Im a nel-spot man myself, and use on as a primary about 45% of the time. Your best bet is to buy a PGP and see if you like it. If you like the small size of the PGP but are still not satisfied, try a nel-spot. You might actualy like the NEl-spot better seeing as how you use a phantom.

Just to mention, PGPs tend not to have the range (and in my experience: Accuracy) of a phantom...you might like the challenge, you might be very frustrated.

I personally think that pgps kick A$$ on the field, i have previously owned one but got rid of it for a bigger investment.

I second Al Ray's suggestion of a Nelspot. Since you already own a nelson style marker, it makes good sense. the Nelspot and phantom share a lot of the same internal parts, such as springs and seals. Cuts down on part hunting.

Not to say you shouldn't try a PGP. I have a buddy who loves them.

Of course the wonderful thing about MCB is that if you purchase a marker and find you don't like it, one of the other whores here will most likely take it off your hands. Then you can purchase something else.

I totally regret selling mine. 30 shots @ 270, plus I had an adjustable stock that fit under the grips... it was great. Fun to putz around with.
