The tentacles of Pump Play begin to spread out to all corners of the globe, taking a stranglehold on countries such as Finland so much so that they have no choice but to obey and pump their guns.

It's been actually refreshing to see the change in players attitudes towards pump from dissmissing them at first to everyone wanting to try it out.

We went from 2 occasional pump players in the whole country to monthly pump only events in just less than 2 years. I guess people just recognized how much fun we had and the results spoke for themselves when we went against electros. I named my S6 as "The Luxe Killer"

Azodin, CCM, Tippmann and the small shops that push their own brand pump kits has helped our "cause" a lot since we're no longer dependant of old school equipment and the general public can buy theirs at any major store within the nations borders instead of ordering abroad.

"dude is that a PUMP GUN he's shooting?" Yes, yes it is.


I wish I had them back in the day pics from '93 or from the Finnish league when my evolution went down and I was "FORCED" to use a Sniper II. Oh the humiliation, everyone was shooting guns SO MUCH FASTER than mine!!! Took 3 players out that game.

Our creed pretty much says it all...
