Okay, short story is I have two paintball markers. One is a Pump "CCM S6" with JT revolution hopper and other is a Electric "Geo 2.1" with Empire Scion.
I haven't used any of the markers on the Field yet. So my question is... which one should I keep?
I like streaming paintballs (in the past I used a Ego 07 and SL94) and sometimes lighting up people, but on the other hand I want to use pump because I want to save money on paint. Of course my pump has an auto trigger pump "I can hold the trigger and pump as fast as I can to somewhat stream"
My thought of cons and pros about each of my marker "Geo 2.1" and "CCM S6" I got the pump first and got the electric 3-4 days after.
Pump "CCM S6" Electric "Geo 2.1"
No Batteries Battery (9 Volt) - my thought. I would save money on batteries, even though markers today
don't grain a lot on the batteries.
One pump shot or trigger pull shot or
pump stroking trigger walk and light up - my thought. I would save money on paint (if using pump) "make it rain paint" less pods to carry and no need for a paintball caddy.
When I watch youtube vids: people shooting electric, and stream or
single pull (sometime I like lighting people up, but I don't want to
scare them out of the game.
two hands (usage) one hand/two hand - with a pump, I can't load and shoot. with electric I can hold one
hand and shoot and load at the same time.
So my overall question: I like saving money, because I don't play paintball each week. I play once every month or so. I don't have friends that are committed to play every two weeks or so. (because of the expense)
I know paintball players give a lot of grace to pumps players, because people like to ramp or stream paint. I like the feel and look of my Geo 2.1 (even though I had it for 2-4 days) but overall, should I sell my electric and keep my pump. Saving money and not worry about electric board sort out and spending more money on batteries all the time.
Can you guys give me option and ideas?
