You will notice the "Navarone Advantage" not associated with the marker ceased to exist once the AT was released to the masses. This in turn marked the end of Navarone as a super power.

This opened the door to the likes of the original Ironmen where "Freight Training" became the new buzz word. Sure one can shoot a thousand balls a game nowadays and anyone can become competitive almost over night. But the true tactical genius's of the sport faded with the invention of speedball.

There just isnt anything like old school 15,10, or 7 man pump ball.
Yes, bring back the 15 man pump tournaments.

I've seen one of the saltier guys at my field AT someone with his Buzzard. It was awesome...

Nope sorry wrong on that one Nelson invented the AT function for the paintball world. Due to the fact that too many sears were being broken by weekend warriors who had not a clue as to use the OO7.

Gun held high by Navarone was done with OO7's long before SI was a wink.

I would ask you to check your facts but I know better. I just remember it that way. I remember discussing the issue at length with Marty Bush of the original Ironmen.

Wow, this thread really ran away from me, but i like the direction it took! Thanks for the historical elements, i think they're neat! So is the consensus that AT belongs on pumps with a hopper? Or perhaps sc with a feed capacity greater than 10?

I was gonna say ... not much point to doing that on a SI gun.

As for the original topic, I could see AT on an SC gun being useful when bunkering.
