I carry a Tac8 as a sidearm. In scenarios I have used it numerous time when my main gun went down, either due to an empty air tank, broken ball in the breech, etc. I have also use it in transition when I have to get close and sneaky.

I've actually used my Delta68 as a sidearm once ... sorta.
At the Tippy challenge this year here, we had tanks, and thus special anti-tank color paint.
Rather than keep dumping my hopper each time me and the beast had a confrontation ... I loaded the Delta68 with AT paint and that solved that issue. Worked good enough for two comfirmed kills.

I tinker, therefore I'm broke!
Further, now that I've found the MCB BST ... I've recently sold my house and moved under the bridge down the road ... but I've got lots of markers.
I have no life, I'm just a dad in constant flux between baby naps and 8yr old tantrums.

I carried a Zeus G2 as a sidearm, twice. First time, no problems! Second time, i made a ballsy run up the tape line, got shot out. On the way back, i looked down on the ground, and was like..."What the hell, someone left a Zeus G2 just sitting here on the ground...."

Came flying out of the holster while running, after that, i carry my "sidearms" as a primary...

With an X7 on the way, I plan on carrying my T8 more often now; especially until i'm used to the cyclone feed and e-trigger.

I always carry it playing long woodsball games now too though, I frequently use a backbottle automag with one of those Sportshot 100rnd hoppers; it's small, light and is usually all I need. Early this year there were a few games where we'd get into massive firefights around clearings or defensable hills; as much as i'm an 'accuracy, not volume' type player, sometimes you just don't have time to reload.

Plus it's awesome having the pistol in your left hand after sucessfully stealing a flag and covering the flagrunner.

I carry a nightmare LB comp as a sidearm... does that count? Oh and I have a TPX too. Both got pulled yesterday during the games at the field I play at. A stock snapping took out my A-5 in a very final way and I had to go to another gun mid-game.

I play pump main and I use the pistol as a backup like if I'm getting rushed or if I need to take a castle . So I use it for close quarters mainly tho as of yet I havnt found a pistol I'm totally happy with.

my local field allows you to pull a sidearm if your primary gets hit, so I allways try to pack a t8. I might draw it once per day, but there have been a few times It's all I had to finish the game with.

Thats a pretty kool rule -I played primary Spyder/a4000 scepter grenade launcher (remote) with my T8 as a side then one day I unstrapped the velcro dropped the gun and line... Pulled out the T8 - RAN- and never turned back

I play woods ball, 5 or 10 minute games and try to carry a sidearm whenever I can - simple reason, I shoot a shocker NXT and the thing will stop firing for no reason at all at least once a day, I also have no luck with hoppers and can rely on my loader to go down at least once a day as well, have carried and resorted to a DSDS, splatmaster and goblin solo in the past. (waiting on a seals kit for my pgp, then that'll probably be my go to side arm with the solo as the back-up to that).

As for what I do with the shocker - leave it where it breaks, it's an honest lot I play with (that and most of them have better guns anyway)
