Assault Weapons changed the way people shoot at each other from having your name on it, to "to whom it may concern".

I like pump because it gets up close and personal, and hurts feelings.

1) Fun

2) Entertaining

3) Challenging

4) Exhilarating

5) Thrilling

6) It helps me get over my complex to impress my friends bluhuhuuuhuuu

Also it teaches me how to snapshoot and move properly since I can't rely on firepower.

Anyone make a paint knife or a stick of paint we can touch someone with?

I want one.

Lets get even sneaker!

I think TF also hit it - I meant to do that. I remember putting a ball down my opponents barrel back in '88. He was holding the gun up over his head and firing aimlessly. I could see his arm come up and the Splatmaster in plain sight. The 3rd time he did it I squeezed with my KP2. He couldn't understand why red paint was coming out of the sight window. He was using yellow, I was using Red. Then he realized. Lucky shot, yes, but I meant to do that - LOL.

Remember when your marker held 10 balls? - that was it! If you were a paint whore you carried 5 tubes of 10 and 5 caplets.

I wish we had a SC near me.

Another reason, one which I think is overlooked but important, is that it when new players and experienced players play against each other, if everyone's going to have a good time, there needs to be some parity. If a players with 5+ years of experience is playing against a new players (less than one year experience, let's say), the experienced player probably has a more technologically advanced marker.

Consequently, their equipment adds to their advantage, rather than tempering it. A player with years under their belt with a pump against a newer player still has an advantage (because no marker is worth years of experience), but it's a slightly more level playing field. I mean, it's not fair for me to meet a new player on even grounds, technologically. I have years, so the new players ought to get rate of fire, volume, etc. Again, that doesn't level the field, but it closes the gap just a bit. And as others have said, the added challenge is part of the fun.

I personally feel that pump play gives the most interesting strategy as well. If you've watched modern airball or speedball play, it seems like a -lot- of the strategy has gone out of it except at the very top levels of play.

Most of it locally seems to be 'take one bunker, throw two cases of paint, hope our snake player doesn't get shot out before he can bunker them'.

I play pump so I can convert more electro shooting people to play pump. I am getting to the point where we can actually have a pump day.

They don't know it yet but the next pump day I set up, I am going to overshoot every one of them with my electro. It will be for all those time I got bonus balled when I had a pump and they had electros.

Yes revenge 3 years in the planning.

So after hearing all of these reason... why are you still here? Go buy yourself a pump and go have some fun! Hell you can even splurge on your new pump due to the fact that you are not spending that cash on PAINT. :P

I don't see pump as a disadvantage. Sure there are times when you are out numbered and having a pump makes it harder. Sadly, I will do just as well with a pump than a mech or electro.

I enjoy playing pump, I can play all day on a bag of paint.
