Positions aren't gear specific, so if you want to keep track however you choose, you still can.
Also, the whole positions thing as a whole has somewhat diminished (ok, diminished a lot) since the days of old. I wouldn't worry too much about them, and just play however comes naturally for you. If you love playing pistol, do it. It's a lot of fun, and my only gripe is the cost of 12 grams.

Furthermore - if you are "deuce-ing" during a game, you have more things to worry about than camo kneepads. - ger

seeing how SO has ... revamped.. who knows about elite weekend 2012, it would be awesome to go to.. but of course space is extremely limited on such an event, even if i could not buy/win my way in i would love to go to work for SO just for that weekend so at least i can say i was apart of it.
i dont think i would consider a pistol player a dagger
1)the player is using a pistol, and by no means is a "light rifleman"
2)player is only carrying mags and 12g (unless if the player runs a remote for his or her set up)
now the concept of a pistol player is about the same as dagger
like the player has a LIGHT load, and the player should be quick on their feet to move in and take out suppressed targets.
now could a new position be created for just pistol players?? yes and no. it all depends how you look at it
if anything i would be all for a custom player slot, where if you are not a hammer, light, medium, heavy gunner, commander ect..
you can fill out what your position was.. but with all the add ons they have added over the years the list is pretty well covered.

As to the OP: Dude....play whatever position you want. Make up anything! I play the NERD position. Its like.....the guy who always gets shot 'cause he was looking the other way. Every team needs one of those. I also play the douche position sometimes. You know....that guy who had one great play the whole day and can't stop rubbing it in....Yeah....I rock that.
The Spec Ops positions were not really official at any type of game or event outside of an SO-exclusive event. (IE: EW) So...yeah....they were not rules for basing gameplay off of. They were (and are) simply definitions of he different types of tasks that ANY PLAYER may perform in a given day/event. Hence the reason they ask you what position you MAINLY played that day when you log it. It is a guideline. I think they were useful definitions, and that they also helped hype up SO's stuff and created a market. Yep. I said Hype. But what's wrong with that? Gotta feed the kids somehow. And its not as if they sold you crap. Hype is what this market is all about.
**Flame-retardant suit - ON** All paintball companies try to create HYPE. They all try to generate excitement about their companies and their products. Ya know those companies making those $1000 electros? HYPE!!! Doesn't HAVE to cost nearly that much, but it does because of the brand, and the HYPE. The NAME is what carries the value. (I am not discussing quality in any way.) So if you wanna buy into the hype...go for it!
Anyways.....I think the next position I wanna play is TERMINATOR. You know.....the guy you can shoot a million times but never seems to die, so you're sure he's wiping so you end up running him down with your tank....
Now where am I going to get a hanglider to really make that work?
