Exactly my sarcastic point
, I took a hacksaw to my 'flashhider', it now looks like this:
If you make a spring fed pistol the same size as a 25 bps electro, IMO you're missing the point of the pistol! One of the greatest advantages I've found to pistol play is the short profile gives me the ability to work over bunker TOPS comfortably. In fact, this allows a team to fill a bunker with three effective shooters(assuming you have an effective pistol player), one on each side and one fighting over the top, instead of just two.
That's one reason why SPPL teams are jumping on the pistol bandwagon, that and the fact that a person can carry a pistol and a LAW or mines so easily.
