Why Pump Markers???

What is the point of pump markers??

I could only think of 2 possible reasons why:

1. Bored of playing with a semi gun.
2. If you play scenario games/ woodsball and you basicly just run to get the flag or whatever is need to be gotten and the marker is used as a simple for of protection so you can run easy.

sorry dude. Im just curious cause they seem kinda cool.

The idea of being a scout or w/e is kinda cool. You can run around the field without having to carry a heavy gun.

playing with pump makes u a better player
makes u conserve paint by making shots count
makes u aim better by making shots count
makes u snap better by making shots count
makes u gog better by making shots count
makes u save money by making shots count
makes it more challenging by making shots counts

and plus, everyone is doin it, i just wanted to be popular...by making shots count.

The challenge.

Anybody can go out with an electro and hose the field with 500 rounds and convince people they did something useful. It's a lot harder going out with a pump and doing something useful.

It puts you in the position of a frontman, even if your not specifically playing front.

Eg. Your snapping, body position, aim, etc have to be perfect and better than everyone elses. If it's not, your gonna fail.

So when you pick up an electro, your 100% comfortable and tearing up the field.

Why not?

It's more fun (TO us pumpers anyway)

It's a challenge as compared to a semi.

It's cheaper.

It's not mainstream.. I like beaing a leader not a follower.

CAN CAN CAN make you better. Just like practice doesnt make perfect, but perfect practice does. You have to be willing to learn the way of playing with it.


It's lighter.

Did I mention fun?

srry for the beginning bro, ive just had a killer headache all day. 7 miles kayaking in the sun = long day. anyways, im pretty sure a large reason for many pumpers is money. or it certainly doesn't hurt. i would suggest that you jump on this bandwagon now, because pump is growing. most paintball veterans, tourney and rec, know what pump is like and respect those who play pump. think of it as a much more pure form of the sport, much the same way fly fishing is to fishing and bow hunting is to hunting.

With semi its hard to tell who really loves the sport, but with pump, you know that everyone of them is a true player and ambassador to the sport. why wouldnt you join?

Ahahahha

QFT.

The one in bold is the main reason why I started playing pump and it's probably the main reason why alot of other people got into it as well And once people get into it they start to like it
