Question Full Bodied or Half Blocked?

Hopefully this thread hasn't been made yet.

Do you guys prefer full bodied pumps or half blocked pumps? Why?

For me, I love full bodied pumps. Although half blocks are lighter and smaller, I think full bodied are more visually appealing and I really don't mind the extra ~8 oz. of weight.

depends. I wouldn't hack up something nice or rare. but something like a prostock, go for it. I just don't like halblocks to much because a lot of dirt usually ends up in the lower tube.

Midblocks are a nice compromise between full body looks and halfblock shortness.

I like halfblocks because you can hold them closer to your face when you shoot.

Halfblocks grew on me. I never liked them before. And now I am absolutely in love with mine. Plus it's gorgeous.

i prefer half/mids cuz of the tighter setup and nothing slapping you in the face scratching up your lens. if you do decide to half/mid make sure you get it done right. ive see some that are just

i like half block cuase there is not a giant piec eof metal flying at your face every time you shoot. also I like the looks full bodyed guns look way to old school and big and ugly. ( but it is definatly personal preference )

I would not determine if i wanna half block my gun purely based on if its ( rare ) or not. i do what i wanna do to my guns no matter what.

i love the guns that weekend ballers modify themselves. I like people who take there own initiative and do things themselves insted of just forking out a bunch of money and getting it milled. It adds originality to a gun.

its kindda like i love to see those guys that come to the field with coveralls, rental tippmans, gravity hoppers, crappy mask but just go ape poopey on field and are going nuts and loven it. I dont like seeing the bandwagon speedballen kids with all there new brand spanken new stuff sporting over 2 grand in equipment on and are complete cowards on the field. Absolutlely hate that.

Personally I love both, to bad there isn't an option to pick that.

Certain bodies look great full, and other's look great half'd

While performance wise between the two, there is no difference.

Just for kicks, i'll show my halfblock =]

I have seen that already, that's an amazing marker.

But what I meant is the option to choose "both" in the poll, hahaha
