I always thought people harassed you guys for tips and I didn't want to be a part of that group.

I think I've made up my mind and I'm probably staying a pumper, and buying myself a classic mag when my birthday comes along.

I'll also save more cash and invest it in better paint. Anyone who balls it up at hollywood sports knows that the redballs and seconds suck. (...cue the Captain Obvious... )

Again, thanks for the help guys. Keep the ideas flowin, because somewhere on PBNation, someone is looking at this thread saying "I'm in the same boat."

I am that someone. Looking at all of this im still undecided and thinking ill keep my semi, and my sniper.

Everytime you shoot a semi, God kills a squirrel. Save the squirrels; shoot a Phantom.

Take off that stock class feed and load the balls one at a time, that oughta make it a bit more difficult, you would have to cock it then use one hand to hold the pump back while the other hand grabs a ball from your pocket and drops it in making you an incredibly easy target for at least half a second.

One thing that I would not forget is...you. Take some time to think about what you want to get out of paintball. I had to ask myself questions like, What's the most important thing to me as a player? For me it's having fun on the weekend w/o breaking the bank and getting a great challenge and workout, that's why I play stock class.
What is more important to me, being one of the last people on the field or playing effectivley and still getting out in the end?
Just evaluate what is best for you the player and what you get the most fun out of. One of the great things about paintball is there is no set way to play it, you can play stock class pump one game and the next game play electro w/ a halo b and a huge pod pack. It's about finding the one, or maybe two ways you like to play, and sticking with them and excelling. I play music, like guitar, bass, drums...whatever I can learn to play. Someone once told me to not move onto another instrument until I was comfortable on the one I was currently playing, the same applies to paintball. Now I can play guitar, bass, drums, mandolin anyway you get the point. Have a great time whenever you paint it up b/c it could be the last time you get too. -peace

Good to hear. BTW does your winchester have a coller for the lid? Mine doesn't it kinda sucks. I am just going to cut a whole in the middle and puts some flaps on it for a Ghetto speed feed.

Selling/trading the phantom to get a Tac 9. I fell in love with it and I'm being burned out of paintball altogether anyway so I'm doing this on impulse..



Phantom, you have treated me well

Here's 2 options:

1st, like posted before, try a pistol out. It's basically stock class (horizontal feed, unless its a tag 8, 12 grams and such), but it's semi. You still get the light gun set up and all.

2nd, I put this sweet little set up together and it rocks. It's kind of pointless to most people, but or someone like you it'd be perfect. Pick up an AGD minimag. You can take a 3.5 oz and put it in the front, just like the phantom (the mini mag comes with the mount in front of the trigger already), take the stock that you have for your phantom and put that on the minimag so you can steady your shots, and then put a little 50 round hopper on top. If you can visualize that in your head, you'll have a semi auto mag, but with the lightness of a 3.5 oz tanks, and the sturdyness of a stock. Kind of pointless because you might as well just use a VSC phantom, but for someone in your position it should work great. It'd also be a helluva lot cheaper than a T9.

Why not keep your Phantom, so you can play stock class and open class. And buy a second Phantom and....make it semi? There's your single trigger, single tube, uber efficient uber light semi auto marker.

And I'll tell you, there ain't many around, so you'd be unique too. Having the "pretty sister" (pump Phantom), and the "ugly sister" (semi Phantom). Yeah.....that's what I would personally do in your situation.

Just got through reading this. Sorry to hear about the burnout. That happened to me awhile back and I just had to step away for a few months.. And sorry to hear you're getting out of pump. I know how you feel sometimes and the missed opportunities on the field sometimes. I don't know how many times I've walked off the field wishing I'd had a semi. And I do, I have a Matrix sitting in my gearbag. Bought it new last June. I've used it 4 times. Oh and one of those times I as using a Winchester pocket hopper. But I just cannot justify pulling the semi out. I figure that if I cannot hit somebody in the first or second shot with my pump, I'm not going to hit them with my semi either because after the first or second shot most people get in their bunker.

Anyway if you really wanted to stay with pump and up your ability to throw some paint, you should get something like a S6.

Hmm, I never heard of anything really bad with 'em. A fella at a field I play at in the summer had one last year, and he said he really liked it. Though I guess he didn't really go into details, for whatever reason.

It would still be unique though lol

I would just buy a cheap spyder to use when the pump gets old.
