2 years
Marker Setup: Raptor SE w/expansion chamber, macroline, T-stock, 24-oz tank
Pure stock PGP
None whatsoever
Strengths: 1) Tried and true design; a true Old School classic marker. It's the '57 Chevy of paintball markers
2) Heft and feel: it's heavy, yet well-balanced. It feels just right in your hand.
3) Built like a tank; it's all-metal, and as close to indestructible as you can get in a marker.
4) Cool; it gets noticed a lot.
5) Incredibly fun to play with; stock class forces you to play with your head instead of your trigger finger. After a few games you note a real improvement in your skills, as you learn from mistakes that a semi's firepower would have rescued you from.
6) Gives you an excuse to wear a tactical holster and web belt.
7) Allows you to pull attitude at people: "You NEED that e-gun?" Of course, often they don't, but there's no glory in nailing a guy using a PGP with your Angel, whereas the other way around..:)
8) Incredibly handy in close quarters; my main marker is a BE Raptor with a T-stock, which can get in the way in a tiny bunker. The PGP is so small you hardly notice it.
9) Surprisingly accurate.
10) Did I mention how fun it is to play with? A game of speedball with everyone armed with PGP's would be a gas... No hosing, just sheer shooting and tactical skill, and actual speed.
Weaknesses: 1) It is a stock class marker and some people will not be able to get over this. It holds 10 shots, is pump-action, and 12-gram-fed. If you live to shoot 400 rounds a game, you might find the PGP hard to adapt to.

2) Modern, small-bore paint sometimes rolls out the barrel.

Aside from this, the PGP has no flaws in my opinion. It's the best $80 I ever spent on paintball. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
Conclusion: If at all possible, get one of the older snub-nosed PGPs rather than the PGP2; the PGP2 is apparently not bad, but it just isn't a classic PGP!
10 out of 10
