I started playing pump wen I started 'balling in '92 because I couldn't afford a semi. When I did move up to semi I still held the skillset so I was never much of a sprayer. When I got back in around '05 I continued my semi shooting, but picked up a couple trracers for pump only events. Games like Pump Pandemonium and some MCB private groups were the only time I bothered. But at Pump Pandemonium in 2010, my trracers let me down badly, so I decided to put a nicer, more reliable pump together. I built a sniper. Old GenX body, benchmark frame, BL Torpedo reg, and lapco microshot with sizers. It was quite a while until the next pump game so I used it at the next open event and I absolutely fell in love with it. Since then, it has become my primary, not because it is a pump, but because I love shooting it. I still shoot my semii's as well, but the Sniper is probably my #1 go to gun.

Personally I like the stripped down no frills style. I don't take paintball seriously and I find pump fits well with that no hopper, no air tank, no half a case of paint strapped to my back. I'd like to say that pump saves money but I developed a taste for high end pumps and well...basically I'm .

'Cause I'm a cheap bastard. Even shooting a single 500-round bag in a day with my semi is too much. 100 rounds/day with a Phantom is much more palatable.
Plus, I love when people who don't already know me from the field underestimate me. They get cocky, I win.

The first game I ever played was with my uncles hand me down pgp which I still have today. Even bought a back up from MaD so I can shelf the original for a while and put some time and money into it.
I have owned semi's, all low tech blowbacks (spyders and clones) and never had a problem out of them. Even in 20*F weather shooting Co2 with the proper set up.
I've actually got 4 BST tabs I've been keeping open and refreshing so I can pick up a semi when I get paid. Just to have something I can switch to and keep it fresh and fun, but I'll never give up using a pgp as a go-to primary.
