The Craze!

So, I finally got a true feel for what playing "pump" is all about this weekend. I must say, it was exhilarating! Thought for sure I would be down right terrible... Apparently I was wrong. I picked up an Empire Sniper from Fox Paintball on Saturday... Brought it out to their 1 day Scenario Event - Training Day, and played with it all day. Gun rocked out of the box. For a gun that wasn't broken in at all, it was shooting fairly consistent, 268 on the low, 278 on the high, and that was using the stock barrel kit, shooting crap field paint that was sitting in the basement. Once I shot all of my crap paint, I switched to Evil, which was actually really good. The difference was day and night, and ball on. Merc'n people all day, friggin awesome. Won quite a few snap shooting battles against electros, was excellent. First snap shooting battle I ended up in was with another pumper, which ended fairly epicly... Both tagging each other. Definitely sold on playing pump... Will I retire my Ego11? Hell no... Speedball is still my thing... But for playing rec ball and scenario, I find that beating up on less skilled players just isn't enjoyable. Also really don't like burning pods of paint on people that break on every little twig... Anywho, just felt like sharing my first real pump experience with you folks...

Just wait until you play pump speedball. Paintball will never be the same. Pump only speedball is hard to don't but deffinately worth it. Pump vs electro speedball is still a blast too though. I've been playing pump only for the last 4 years and haven't looked back.

I am starting to get that way, I play pump during ALL rec ball days. However, playing speedball with D2 teams I still play with my G6R. The thing is I have started taking out my pump for ****s and giggles during those days and don't do to to bad.

Playing with pump on a speedball field is a total blast! The past few weekends I've been doing nothing but that and let me tell you, it's satisfying bunkering someone with an electro

Keep at it, you'll convert after awhile!

something about the slower pace of pumping lets you line up your shots better and makes you become more patient on the field. glad you had a great time.

oh I definitely plan on playing Speedball with my pump too. Found it most enjoyable when I was battling a 6 v 1... Was able to drop 2 of them before catching a hopper hit.. Guy that got me was like... "Damn dude, you were pumping? I'm salty" Honestly don't think paintball has been that exhilarating for me since I started playing 10 years ago. Bunkering people with a pump is just awesome in all the right ways.
