    Hi everyone.

    Notice that 'pump action' has a lot of fans; wondering what the attraction is? I notice the phrase 'more tactical' crops up a fair bit, as opposed to 'spray and play' but surely youcan do this just as well with a basic mechanical marker?

    But I get the feeling there's more to it?

    A lot of rubbish is spoken about pump play such as your ‘more tactical’ quote, or they are ‘more accurate’, ‘cheaper’ due to less paint shot etc

    These are more related to the person behind the trigger and how they use them
    It’s just the fact that you have to pump then shoot it as opposed to it cycling

    Pump play is fun if you like that - I do
    It can be played with limited rules (such as mechanicals, limited paint, pump only etc) or in a ‘normal’ game giving you a firepower disadvantage which incentivises you to play differently
    I like pump play as just one more of the many different options to keep things interesting. Variety is the spice of life

    Ah, ok thanks. Useful to hear. I imagineeveryone just thinks their own 'gig' is special? Human nature.

    I have played every form of paintball that I am aware of
    I’ve enjoyed all of them
    My favourite is Scenario Paintball, but how i play varies
    Despite me not actually having played for a few years, I have been on the field and have enjoyed what I have been doing

    My name is tom, I am a Paint-a-holic
