Straight pump team-Anyone Interested?

The Story- About a year or two ago I went crazy buying gear and playing speed ball as much as I could. Good times all around, but Money got tight and so did time. Well to make this short I miss paintball!!!!!!!!! So clearly the only thing to do would be form a Pump team.

Me- I am 29 played a little here and there but not to much tourney exp. I was playing with electors, but I have no desire anymore to burn that kinda money on paint. Thus a Pump team will be born.

Team- Will be looking to enter every three man event I can set my sights on and field a team for. I know for a fact that there are some good speedball event for pumps around New England that would love to see more teams. I will also like to try to show up at some big game. I know nothing about these but should be easy to figure out.

You- If you have a pump gun and want to get better at paintball your in. I don't care if you are holding a $50 or a $1000 GUN. I really don't care about age ether. You can sign a waiver and buy your paint I am good. Just looking for some good guy and girls to shoot paint with. PM OR POST

I usually play pump these days to be honest, play more for fun but I could be interested. I'm usually at Hogans Alley myself.

Thanks for the reply guys I will keep you both in the loop when I head out to play. Good luck with the cash for a pump, and Hogans is about an hour from me but that is pretty much any place worth playing for me so that works just fine. Shoot me a pm if ether of you head out.

There are a few more people that play pump at Hogans too but I'm not sure when they come around. There definitely has been an upswing in pump players at the field there even if it's just for rec play.

yeah it seems like allot more people at least like the idea these days. I think it is a good deal all around. I am going to see if anyone is around to go to PIP so I can try out my new gun. I haven't played in a long while so I got the itch.

I know hundreds of pump players in CT, MA, RI, even NH & VT.
Most have one thing in common ~ they use a pump for fun.

If you organize a pump-only game they'll crawl out of the woodwork to come play, but as soon as you use the word "Team" they assume tournament style play and that's not why they use a pump.

In fact, the majority (that I know) are older guys who did the tourney thing decades ago and gave it up to the younger kids but love the game too much to let it go entirely. So they gather for more "laid-back" games that are organized private game as legitimate fields or run Outlaw.
During the Summer months there's at least one each month somewhere locally.
Not so much during the Winter.

T.A.C. runs Spring & Fall Stock games, Fields of Fire in Mystic is a new place but has already had one stock game and looks to have more in 2014, AirSports in Ludlow, MA has an annual pump only day (which includes woods & speedball).
Splatttland is outlaw and pretty much limited to "invite only", but it draws the most experienced pump players in all of New England. (I've been playing since 1988 and they call me the noob...)

If you want competitive speedball using a pump, and I know some kids do, I would suggest looking up Eric at Yankee Paintball in Oxford, CT (just South of Waterbury). He hosts the Gravity League several times a year, which is an open-class pump-only 3man league. The League tourneys happen at several different fields, Yankee is just the one in CT.

Good luck with your team building, there are lots of opportunities to find pump players at local fields here around CT ~ but I'll leave you one caveat, you'll find more of them on the field than on the internet. You need to hunt where they are, they won't come to you.

Thank you for all the replies. Jim I got to thank you in , I hear you on all fronts and really appreciate the advice. I will be doing all of that when the weather is a little nicer. I know online is not the home of most pump players but In the wee months of winter I am happy to send out feelers for this coming season. Seems like I have got some interest already. Thank you none the less. As for anyone else that is on here looking for other pump players hit me up or post up if you are going to play any where local.
