It isn't hard. Pump is not new to paintball. I always aim with one hand on the grip and the other on the pump.

Gun down = not ready to shoot someone

But in all honesty if you watch experienced "speedball" players vs the new guys
the one thing you can notice 99% of the time is that the new guy will switch
sides of the bunker with the gun down, and the experienced/tournament player
will point the gun up. I think this says something about which is faster to get
back into the shooting position from.

I think that's just preference, alot of the tourney players like to play tighter though, and I think moving the gun above you lets you do that

I cut a spring so that it is just short enough to not let the bolt go all the way back if I point my marker up. Less resistance on the pump that way and I don't have to worry about a double feed. I hold the handle forward with my pointer finger.

Do you personally mount those in the pump handle?

I always tell the players on my team to ALWAYS keep their hand on the pump handle. I find too many players get in a habit of taking their hand off the handle and lose shots at targets that they would have if the had had that extra shot. Especially snake players if someone is coming to bunker you and you have your hand off the pump all you have to that one shot reaction time and your through. If you have you hand on the handle you are already in the ready position and all you have to do is point and shoot. Even if your running to bunker someone it is better to have your gun up with your hand on pump handle then if they come out you are ready to shoot. It might take a little more consintration to hold it and run, but in time you will get used to it and it will be second nature.

What I dont like seeing is that now that Ive told everyone about it, they just say, "Oh, dont worry, I chrono'd it without holding the pump handle". But they dont realize that when they hold the handle forward... a jump in velocity occurs....

that highly depends what you shoot.
I have and have had other markers that do the opposite.

or do they realize it..... there was a kid at our local field that does the same chrono trick with his pump. i couldn't figure out how he was getting such long range shots until i saw him chrono. i haven't seen him use the pump since, so i haven't called him on it.
