I always have different things going on, so I usually start with my most recently assembled gun. Then I usually bring a pump, then an electro. That way, it's all covered.

But on short notice days (where I'm literally told that morning), I use the good ol' "eany meany miney mo" method.

I need a trailer to haul it ALL...

Usually I load the truck with boxes and find out what I have when I get there.
(and what I forgot to clean after the last time)
I always make sure I have the basics. Masks, markers and 12g's. Although last time I brought scuba tanks and a fill station, but forgot to bring a hopper.

But it can be a tough choice when you have a new toy you want to try out and an old favorite you just rebuilt, or just stick to what you use most...

Mixing it up keeps all (or most) of them in good working order, but they all shoot differently. Sticking to one in particular is best for muscle memory.

Yep, I sure struck a chord allright. And equally as obviously I'm in the right place!

Russc and I went to a local pump day and he brought along a butt load of markers. The next time we car pool I'd better have the canopy on my truck by then because there's not a hope in heck that we can fit all his and my markers in the space behind the seats.... As it was it all barely fit and I didn't even HAVE a pump! ! ! ! I was going to borrow one from the Island guys. I think he brought 6 or 7 that day.

I never really had to think about it way back when...

When I was first a renter it was 3357's all around. If you were feeling rich you paid more for extra cylinders. Much later, I always requested a VM68. If I called ahead, Krazy Kris always saved me one.

Then the clouds parted and I bought my first new gun... ICD Puma! Then came a Sidekick Semi for back up. That was my standard loadout for the rest of my previous career.

Now I find myself in uncharted territory. I told myself that the first time out will be with my previous pair. However, what about out after that? Fox or Hound? Spring feed or hopper? Pump or Semi? Oh, heck... What barrel to you use?

*sigh* It used to be so easy, grab the Cat, the pistol and head out the door. You MCB people have ruined the simple fun of being a paintball magnet.

Fun thread - old or not.
I pack out two main shooters and 4 loaners - but always shoot the same one.
All snipers, all PPS reg'ed, all gravity feed. My main shooter has a bob long hump back frame with hogue grips, small dialed-in red dot, and CCM EZ-grip pump thing.. I think how this gun feels in my hand, balances once aimed, and how the sight picture looks just feels perfect. All of the rest shoot the same, but they just don't feel right.

Is 9 years a record?

But regardless, gotta keep them rotated. If there's something I haven't used in a while, that gets the nod. If there's a specific style I'd like to play, e.g. stock class or pistol, that narrows it down.

Lol... A Micromag for a Semi, a Phantom Revolution or Armson Rifle for a pump, and if I want an electro I bring an eMicroMag. At the most three guns, and only two if I bring the eMicro (since it can be used in either semi or electro modes).
