Mag fed is a ton of fun, but also a challenge. A big challenge. It can be harder than stock class pump at times. Bug you do feel like a complete bad *** when you slap a fresh mag in before making a big move (which you'll probably fail at, but if this is your thing it ain't about being "competitive").
You're going to want extra mags, a lot of them, and that can be expensive. Though you'll make it up in the long run on paint savings. My full loadout for a casual game with my T8 pistol has me carrying 6 extra mags. With the one in the gun that's still only 56 shots for a whole game, so a bag of 500 lasts you a long, long time.
That sounds nice. I am thinking about getting the t9.1 ranger. I like the look of it because it is not to expensive and it can run on a HPA tank and use a regular hopper. But I think I would feel like more of a bad *** using mags. lol
