Should I start playing pump?

Right now I shoot a 09 PMR and use a 98c with response trigger as a backup but I've been thinking about getting rid of my 98c and getting a pump. Is it worth it? I've never played pump before but I've been seeing more pump players lately and thought it might be fun. If I do get a pump, I was thinking about getting an autococker trilogy and converting it. Are they any good? I don't want anything I have to work on a lot but I don't want anything really expinsive either

Yes. If you don't want to put the work into putting together an auto cocker pump you could look into an SL- 68ll. They're great starter pumps in my opinion.

DON'T! You'll never get out of it! It's worse than crack! You'll be addicted for life and have way too much fun.

Yes. My first pump gun was a trilogy with a pump kit, standard 200 round hopper, and a 68/45 tank

Before buying one, ask someone with a pump to allow you to shoot it to get a feel for it.



Peace-

When I first started paintballing in 1998 I bought a WGP Sniper III. I sold it to buy an autococker. Now 14 years later I decided to play pump again and bought a cheap trilogy and converted it to pump.

Is it hard to install a pump kit on a Trilogy? And are they reliable?

No and yes. The trickiest part about the Trilogy is taking it apart cleanly in case you want to re-use the pnuematics.

I don't think anyone is going to honestly and truthfully say you shouldn't get into pump. Just do it. More than likely, you will love it and quickly become addicted, like I and so many others have become.

Once you get just as many elims with half the paint budget, you'll be hooked.

just keep checking nation and ou can find a good pump for cheap and atleast you dont have to build it.

but anyways, yes, you should, but be ready to use it more than your other guns.
