Why do people think pump guns are more accurate?

I just dont get it.

Because they are ignorant, naiive, and can't comprehend that they were beat by pure skill alone, that there was some other reason why they were shot by a pump.

As Evil previously showed, pump paintball markers defy the laws of physics.

It's simple. We take our time. Our shots are made based on our angles, we move to acquire our shots and we make them count. Therefore people believe we are more accurate. They don't have three balls that come kind of close to them to warn them that some one is shooting at them. We take our time and we place that one ball where it needs to go, because that's all we have.

i understand the physics that every gun shoots the same, and it all depends on paint to barrel, consistency, yadda yadda yadda.

but for some reason my ss-25 is the most accurate gun i've shot. even when i play with my semis, play the same, even take my time to pick my shots, for some reason i cant hit people like i can with my pump. just doesn't make sense in my mind, but hey, i dont mind.

Then obviously you DON'T understand that....




The reason it SEEMS so it subconsciously you know that you have the make the shot count. When I use a semi I'm alot less worried about 1 shot accuracy.
