1. use less paint = cheaper cost to play = play more often
2. More of a challenge = feels better when get eliminations
3. can't overshoot some noob or renter on accident = dont give future players a bad experience.

Dam my local field is $20 entry ($300 season pass) and $70 a case of paint (FPO) but as a pumper a case of paint can last me two months and that's playing 5-6 hours every other weekend throughout the summer, with practice (private land) on the off weekends (I also try to use old paint when practicing). But winning paint and other swag at big events helps offset some costs.

I got into pump play because there was a group that got together and played one night a week. Now I play because I love it! I play 2-3 times a week, if I played anything other than stock class, I couldn't afford to play.

You guys got it good too (and I know it's not the worst here either)...
40 minutes away, $20 field fee, $80-$100 a case. Field Paint Only.
I got into it for the lower profile, increased movement...and to save money as a student. (I find high rate of fire = I tend to keep heads down and fire a lot, haha)
Now half the fun is the challenege...been playing with a nearly stock PGP, and just recently picked up an Airowgun too, waiting on shipment...!

It's the game I started with, I like the "potential" added challenge, it is more about the hunt then the tool concept and most importantly I like it.

Trilogy Autococker - around $100. Can be found here, ebay, craigslist, etc.
Pump kit - $30 on paintballgateway.
Good tight bore barrel - $40, lurker eigenbarrel is $39 new, .678 or .684 bores.
Halfway decent reg - $30, almost anything will work. User preference.
30 minutes and a glass of your favorite beverage later, and you have an awesome starter pump that only cost you $200, and you built it yourself. If you're not happy with it, you can probably flip it and get most of your money back. Pump certainly isn't for everyone, but everyone SHOULD try it at least once. The pros seem to outweigh the cons if you get the hang of it.
EDIT: Also, get used to playing with a pump for a few months, and then go see what kind of damage you can do with a semi. You might scare yourself
