Field Rentals/ blah blah, lots of guns... even an angel... well I didnt get to shoot it, but i held it!!!
None really, I don't buy a gun to spend another 200 dollars upgrading. Try to find one that basically has what you want.
Built like a tank
Easy to field strip
Easy to reload
Its not semi auto!!!!
Sights snap easy or snag on holster
I read almost every review on this sight, and honestly feel most people don't tell you what you seriously need to consider. I bought this gun because it was supposedly soooo accurate and you could compete with semi's. Wrong.
This gun is really not that accurate at all, its very average as far as markers go. A friend just purchased a Spyder Victor II, and firing them both at a range of roughly 40 feet his was just as accurate as my PGP, maybe a little more accuate... now maybe im wrong but I generally dont equate Spyder Victor with "accurate".
The biggest problem however is that it is not semi auto. So if you miss your first shot your going to get penned behind a bunker. Now that wouldn't be all that bad, if the gun was accurate, but like I said it is just average. The worst part about it being a pump though, is that you actually have to pump it. Every time you pump you loose your aim, so its impossible to just adjust a little bit and hit your target, which is especially bad if it is even a little bit windy.
The last problem is that I always had trouble with the first few shots. So if it's your backup you can't just pop a 12 gram in and expect it to shoot fine on the first shot. Expect to shoot it a few times to get it working. I want a sidearm that I can just whip out of the holster and lay some paint down.
And yes there is paint overspray... and yes it is extremely hard to get off, I tried using brillo and metal scrubbing pads to no avail.
However if you are determined to get a pgp, get the pgp II, its extra features are all really nice. Actually I plan on putting mine on ebay in a few weeks...
Definatly don't buy it if you plan on playing against Semi's and it is your main gun. It is not an incredibly bad deal though, after all PGP's do tend to give you warm fuzzies. But in my opinion most people would be better off spending another 20 bucks and getting a semi pistol.
It gets a 5 because that is exactly what it is! Average, nothing spectacular
5 out of 10

Hey moron. Dont give it a bad review, because it's a pump! You complain that it's not semi-auto, it's a pump dip-wad! God you are an idiot. If you wanted a semi-auto you should have bought one! Dang NOOBS!!!!
