Pumps in the U.S. are widely use and brings me chills when playing againts one. Even the marvelous, brilliant and lovable DVS1 admitted of using it once in a while.
The obvious advantage such as using less air and paint is also learning how to shoot discriminately thus improving overall skills. When I watch pump players I notice one thing, their patience something I lack.
I have played with pumps as well. The biggest disadvantage is the ROF, of course. But once you get used to it it's a pretty exciting marker to use. Yun nga lang if you are going against someone with an e-marker you better have lots of cover or maneuvering space. It is a good training gun for such purposes.
