Yes ladies thats right Sonny Lopz of the LA Hitmen will be joining me on TechPB radio on Tuesday.

Parhaps best known for his pump play and love of ALL aspects of paintball he has recently taken on promoting paintball in paradise with the Oahu Open.

Check out:
Oahu Open
LA Hitmen site

In regards to the show, I will not be taking gear question calls, so if you have any questions for Sonnt post up in this thread and we wil have them answerd.

Some of his pump vids.....









Questions so far:

anthoneyk123 - Whats your favorite stock class pump?
Did you play a lot of pump before you started playing on hitmen?


Lewthor - Do you have problems using a force fed loader on a pump? Isn't that kind of heavy and a huge target considering it's not needed, when a Revy would do the job?


bigvin95 - What was it like playing with the Hitmen?

What was it like going into a tournament against electros?


schmidty11111 - when and how did the hitmen get started?
what do u look for in a good pump player?


paintballer4ever - What was the first time you played pump?
What is your all time favorite pump?


Old school player:
How does your strategy differ playing pump (as opposed to semi) in tournaments and scenarios? Do you find yourself more effective as a player playing semi or pump?


WhatsHisFace - Whats the biggest mistake you commonly see first time pumpers make?


Trum15 - i have a good question... what was the first pump gun you owend?? and do you still have it and use it? how did the la hitman come up with the hit man mod (i recall mike saying they came out with it?)


Ze German - "Sonny, when you play scenarios, do you have a barrel(tip) for rainy conditions, and if so, how dry did it keep your barrel? Do raincovers affect your game, if you use(d) them?"

In the "One With the Gun" videos most of the guys were having trouble listening because of that chick in it. I was having trouble listening to these videos because of that aurora pump in it. :wub:

Ooh, I'll be tuning in to this for sure.

How does your strategy differ playing pump (as opposed to semi) in tournaments and scenarios? Do you find yourself more effective as a player playing semi or pump?

Didn't Sunny Lopez work for WGP? Does he still work for them or has WGP folded or what? I remember he was in a video showing and describing the Karnivor back in the day.

favorite pump gun
Don't you hate it when you've stopped believing but Journey won't let you.
If you play with skill, style, class, finesse, honor, integrity,
and all of the above, you play pump.

B.P.S.: Unit of measure for the absence of Skill

Thought of another one:

What is the best tip you could give to a new pump player? And what is the best tip you could give to the other, more experienced pump players?

I have a few:
-Why is an 18in barrel used by yourself and Derrick Obatake, when 14 and 16 are most common? And what bore size is your favorite?
-Is the Aurora Cocker your favorite marker of all time?
-What is the reason for LA Hitmen's "no autotrigger policy?"
-What tips do you have for a pump player playing against semis in big games?
-Sonny, why you so damn awesome? :D

What do you need to do to start/run a successful paintball team, such as the hitmen that play all forms of paintball?

Also down here in south Florida its hard to find any pumpers any idea on how to get more people into pump paintball?
