I played yesterday with a store private even here in SoCal. Out of a group of 45 or so I'd 3 or 4 at most were playing pump. Many of the other players were shooting high end markers, a few with those Pinkio? hoppers.
Long story short, I busted out my System X NME for a half game and then went back to pump. It's just the feeling of one balling someone in the mask, that makes it so much more satisfying.

Then I would pack everything up and go for a motorcycle ride.
Lol... I can relate.... Only with me it was one Phantom and a Mag!

The great thing about pump is if you play well and shoot a few people, you can rub it in (good naturedly, of course) by yelling "Dude! I shot you with my pump gun".
Conversely, if you suck it up and get blown off the field, you can say, "dude, I'm playing with a pump gun."
It's a self esteem win-win.

Shooting a fast gun makes me pretty lazy and probably other people too. Use that to your advantage. You've got less weight and a smaller profile than with a semi. Use that too. Spend some time at the range and master the snapshot. I'm no expert, but I like these tips(I didn't think em up and you've probably come across them before).

Improve your First Shot Accuracy. At the range, I usually hide behind an obstacle or point my marker down and make every shot a "first shot"

Imagine a line where your cover ends. Don't move too far out of it when shooting but also, don't move too far behind it when hiding. That should make you faster.

Don't peek over cover if you can peek around it. You expose yourself a lot less

dont be afraid to switch guns, nelson style setups shoot very different from sheridans/cockers

i tried to get into pump with a phantom VSC, and i couldn't hit the narrow side of a barn.. broad side sure, but i wasn't accurate.. buddy had a T2 that he let me try, i was able to hit 2 inch diameter poles from 30 feet away with the first shot,

i attribute that to playing for years with cockers.. and theres just something about the way a cocker "points" for me

I went out twice this weekend and its awesome to have the teams fight over you. I was pop'n people in-between the eyes with my phantom and the looks on their faces after the games were priceless. I'm usually the guy running up the farthest and taking on the electos with the ten tubes. I really do love my phantom.

This times 10. While my Nelson fu was getting stronger, the Tao of the Sheridan fits how I naturally aim and shoot.

easy,
instead of being the passive by relying on your paint to put their head in. be the aggressor. move first, move fast, stay low, use blind spots, get the better angle, learn to snap shoot fast. when i snap shoot, i snap so fast that i am back in before i see the ball break, so the next thing i see is them walking out.

be unpredicable. for ex: when i surrendered a guy last weekend i did not go around the bunker, i went over it.

i cannot stress enough though to get ****ing good at snap shooting though.
you snap fast enough and you will out shoot 99% of the semis. but always remember, switch hands and watch your ***.

My internet crush is growing. Talking about Taoism and sheridans in the same sentence. Impure thoughts go away.

How's that build coming along?

Back to topic...

STOCKCLASS' post had the theme of what I think of in terms of pump play. Don't play someone else's game. Play yours to your strengths and let your small successes fuel your fun and your moments of folly and failure fuel it as well.

Double FYI for paintball rules there should be no "offer" of surrender, its either mandatory surrender at X distance when guy is behind you or no surrender and you get shot in the booty. "offer" of surrender makes for some ridiculous and dangerous john woo tactics.
