I have a T8.1 and love it, but I use it as a primary and it had the features I wanted in a pistol. If it was for sidearm only I'd probably have one of these in a holster on my vest:
Actually, I wouldn't go with anything that ISN'T .68 cal.. Almost no fields have .43 cal paint on hand and some only allow field paint. With a .43, you'll find that you're limited. I suggest Tiberius or Tippmann pistols. I have the Tiberius T8.1 and I love it! Stupid accurate (more so than my A-5), light, fast. They've finally made the remote line mod part for the 8.1, so no more wasting money on ecologically unfriendly 20g CO2 carts.
I haven't fired the TPX, but it looks very sleek.
Check out the TPX and Tiberius Arms forums to compare opinions.
