Well I was exited when i first went out to play paintball, because i was going to get to try out my new Spyder. I came out and chopped so many balls that i was considering renting. My friend then suggested that i use his sterling that he had brought as a backup. I knew it was a pump, but i didn't want to rent so i agreed. He set it up for me and i began to play. On the third shot i took i took someone out from fifty yards up a hill with only his leg sticking out from behind a bunker. I was then hooked. I had a blast. I was sneaking around and making shots that i had never made before. I always used to make fun of him for using that pump while we were using semi's, but i then realized why. It will totally change your play style. You will try to MAKE shots, instead of just taking them. I would recommend this marker to anyone. A great buy for anyone that wants to have some fun, while making fun of his friends at the same time for getting beat by a pump.
