Pump play is just a different style of play. No running and gunning.
Actually there is plenty of running and gunning in pump play ...

Thanks allot for the reply's guys.
1) Where do you recommend buying pump guns from? ansgear.com only has the new bob long mvp pumps and empire sniper pump guns.
2) I think for a pump gun I would want one with no regulator. Seeing that having a light setup is one of the perks of shooting a pump I'd want one with the least amount of bells and whistles. What do you recommend?
3) - I heard that stock pump guns are not allowed on some fields because the owners do not want to deal with the disposable tanks. True?
- Can any open pump gun be made into a stock and vice versa? Not really sure what makes a pump gun "stock"
4) Whats the best tippman pump gun. Only wondering because there are tippman events where I live and pump events and it would be nice to have a pump gun that can compete in both events.
The light setup comes mostly from the smaller hopper and tank. The difference between open class with 13ci and 50 round hopper to stock class is not that much.
Some fields may indeed not want true stock class due to powerlets being left around on their field. In those cases you can probably play modified stock (small tanks).
Most pump guns can be configured for stock class but it's easier with the ones that have factory support for it such as the phantom. Stock class basically means horizontal feed tube mounted directly atop the barrel/body tube, and powered by 12g powerlets in a screw plug/bucket type changer. There are some other small rules as well but this is the basic definition of stock class.
For tippmann you're looking at the SL68-II.
