I was thinking of buying one of these for my next gun. What do you guys think? Negatives? Positives?

It looks pretty awesome as far as pistols go! Think it'd be practical to use as a primary? Cause it'd be a giant waste if I didnt lol

Yea I noticed that.. what in the world makes the squall COST so much?

Big question: A phantom setup + gear? Or a squall?

A Squall would be straight pimp, but I couldn't justify spending that much money on a pistol. But that's only because I suck with pistols :panzer:

A Squall isn't just a paintball pistol, it's a custom-made, handcrafted piece of paintball art. In terms of raw performance, you can't beat one-the Squall is just a shortened Typhoon that's fed by a 12-gram and a spring feed.

If you can't justify the cost, try finding a used one-they usually go for around $500. Then, if you like it, sell it for what you paid for it and get Palmers to build you a truly custom Squall. That gun will definitely bring the sexy.

Well, Palmers guns are heavy. I'm going to say that right here. The Squall won't balance as well as some other pistols, and some, like the Tac8 or AGD Sydarm, have similar performance but better weight and balance (while also being cheaper). The only Squall user that I know of on this forum uses it on remote, and theirs is a converted PGP instead of a true Squall (Strokers are lighter weight than Typhoons, because of various design differences).

whats wrong with semi pistols? I do admit a pug looks nice too, but it seems just like a nicer pgp. Cheaper than a stroker conversion at least right?

warden- isn't the squall also somewhere like 3 inches longer than the stroker? Thats a lot of brass!

I can't decide if I want the squall because I'd like using it, or because I'd love the sheer awesomeness of it.

I have a few Palmer products.

Pros....
-unique, you will not normally run into another Palmer gun...let alone a Squall on the field. Last time I saw a Squall in play was five years ago!
-compact, full sized performance in a very small size
-resale, a Squall will hold its value so if you do ever decide to move on you will have something worth selling.
-brass, adds a bit of heft to the thing so it is a very stable platform.

Cons....
-unique, You will not normally run into an...ok you get the point. But if you need it repaired you have to ship it back to Palmers.
-limited shot count, this thing is not a pump! It is quite accurate though, but most semi users have a hard time ajusting to the technicallities of shot counting and patience to only shoo when you know you can hit the target.
-12 grams, always one of the sownfals for pistol play in my eyes. so many thins to talk about here, but it will get 25 to 30 good shot per 12g.
-brass, adds a bit of heft to the thing, so you will need time to condition your arms to playing differntly. Trust me though, this is a ery tiny con!

Overall....would I buy one...no. But I rellay know what I like after years of playing...now if you are talking Hurricanes...then I am all over that!! I will have a Hurc one day, but that is another thread!
