I was drawn to pump play simply because of the feel of it. You have complete control and feel of every shot. Not just clicking some solenoid or sensor. The mechanics of it are just fun. I dont play stock class, or even limited paint. I have a rotor and at least 2 pods. I'm slowly learning how to limit shots. Either way, pump is awesome. They "always" work, everything breaks eventually. My favorite pump moment was, me and a team mate both landed 1 shot each in a terminator kill zone (about a ft sq on a Jersey) within half a sec of each other. That led to many high fives.

Keep pumping!

Pump is for the masochists, welcome to the weird side.

Keep the pump hand strong.

I went to the pump side 5 years ago and I never went back.

I have primarily played pump since 1988 with a short hiatus in the early to mid 90s when I was actively playing tournaments but rec play was almost always pump. Never really felt I was "out gunned" when playing pump. Even played an SPPL season with "only" a pump in the mid-2000s and we did pretty well.

The trick is field/action awareness. Keep your head up and constantly scanning, you beat volume play by knowing what is going on and constantly working the angles/movement. Have a partner or two with the same sickness definitely helps.

I do occasionally pull out a semi for a game or two and now have even bought my first electronic marker (Axe 2) but still tend to play pump a vast majority of the time.

Welcome and may you find great enjoyment for playing pump.

welcome to the club! as mentioned by others, if you dont feel "out gunned" playing your electro buddies, you will be just fine. i play almost exclusively pump, at my home field, and the other field i travel to, and i am against my electro buddies, and renters. never feel out gunned, just take each game as it comes, and pay cool!

So change of subject but I'm the op so who cares, but is there anyone who makes smaller freak inserts. All the fields I go to only use gi paint and it is super tiny, like .675 insert is more of a bore match and even then I had a few rollouts until the paint heated up in my care after a few hours.
