I played a mag fed indoor game, it was fast paced so no one was hanging around hiding in woods, i think mag fed guns are fun in that environment.

This is a growing market.. In the last year Magfed has increased by over 8 times.. It's sure to increase over the following years at all types of players..
I'm just glad I was part of the beginning of the revolution

I think mag fed is more fun for sure. I played my first mag fed only event a few weeks back and what a difference. You can actually move and pick your positions without worrying about getting hosed down by some nutter with a gazzillion pods and blurred trigger fingers.
Seriously though I think hoppers have their place on speedball fields and tourneys where you need to cover and move where a mag fed couldn't provide that same guarantee the guy won't pop his head out and have a try under fire.

It changes the game.. Makes tactics better and easier and its less painful ;)

Although at big games even though i have 9 magfed guns always use a phenom :/

Personally i can't see the point of mag fed unless you want to play milsim, and if you think about it if it was possible to have in real life assault rifles and the such that could easily carry and feed a couple of hundred rounds you wouldn't choose to use a magazine that only holds 30 rounds would you.

BOD i love you......he he....some one who sees the light...

mag feed is a very very limited market...its would not pay..and paintball sites would make no profit,,,also your a big bunch of girls...who cry if you so much as get shot twice,,,or get paint on your camos,,,LOL...< im smiling >

mag feed games used to be great,, you could use a tac cap.. which is a magazine,,, which as a loading system is way above the well type mags that you stick in the bottom of your gun...

dudes really, stop playing soldiers and come back to playing paintball...lets just have games with limits...or let us have ten shot tubes in our torny guns,,,oh i forgot,, you dont like that,,as then they dont look real and are also far faster to load..

lets have a adult chat about what a magazine is...in my eyes a magazine is any thing that is used to load rounds into your gun/marker.. be it drum / stick / mag / or box...or even hopper..as in bullet hopper...yes the japs had machine guns that you dropped bullets into .. this just sat on top and to one side,,,hey just like a paintball hopper... there are also magazines that come under the barrel and in the butt stock...these are called tube magazines...

so what is a magazine....
