Not new (but may as well be), need advice
So, a little background:
I managed an indoor field in like 1996 for a year or two that was pump only. Fell madly in love with my "mostly stock class" Phantom (7 oz tank).
I've got a Cocker Trilogy (uhhh...red/black one, I can't remember which that one is)...played with it a few times but it's a solid meh.
I'm looking to fly clear the heck across the country (from Oregon to Maryland) to play outdoor rec ball with a few people I've been online gaming with for years now. I'm looking to buy something else that's a little snazzier than the cheap Cocker wannabe I've got now.
I remembering back when being dazzled and amazed by watching the how-to VHS tape of a stock Automag being dryfired to something mind-boggling (like 20 shots per second, I think?). Looking at the electo-pneumatics of today...flip a switch and it'll be full auto (or may as well be full auto) makes me weep.
So, I'm looking for some input. I want something that I can crank paint down range...but because I'm pulling the trigger fast. I'd like to avoid anything I've gotta stick batteries in (beyond, of course, the hopper), but I also don't want to look like a complete Luddite.
Anyone have any input? Are there any electronic guns that aren't complete cheese? Are Maggies still around, and have they gotten past the issues of "the tiniest bit of liquid CO2 on the seals and you're replacing them" and "it doesn't recharge between shots fast enough to sustain rapid fire"? Are Cockers still as obnoxious and finicky in their timing as they used to be, or has that been figured out?
