Question Gun Set Up

I have noticed that out here many people run very different setups. On the mainland the whole group will have 3 or 4 different guns but out here almost everyone has a different setup.

What do you run?

it really depends , I play mostly woodsball but I have multiple set ups..

Extended/modified Smart parts Sp1
Stock Smart parts Sp1
Smart parts sp8 with both front shrouds and but stocks
Today Ill be receiving in the mail Milsig K Series Elite

Speed ball I have (and I see no reason to upgrade) my trusty old shocker sport..

Pistols I sometimes use as side arms others I run as primary

pre old school pgp
Duel Tiberius T8.1s..

Pistols I like running with on structured fields or where playing gets close as they just move faster then drawing down with a larger marker..

The sp1s and sp8 I like using more on fields with a little space to them or distance between you and other players (for obvious reasons )

on feilds that have a combination of open space and structured Ill run with a primary and pistol, you have the primary to cover the distance of getting from point a to the structures then when inside switch to pistol for being able to move easier and stay smaller as a target.


What do you run? what do you prefer,are you thinking about switching it up?

See other places you don't see people rocking the old school guns like the shocker sport.

luxe looks nice i just havn't had the chance to try one since i won't pay that kind of money on a paintball marker.

Here's one theory, Hawaii being relatively small, most players get to play with most other players here at some point. That means the newer players play against all the oldschool guys a lot, many of whom play with pumps or oldschool guns. They see that those guns are still very competitive on the fields, so they don't get the false impression that only new/expensive markers can compete. Opens up the options.
