Hey everyone, I took a long hiatus from these forums and am back now, anyway, I was wondering how I should get into pump.

Should I try pump out first with a cheap pump before I get a more experience and decide if I like it?

What is a good pump that is cheap and good to learn pump on?

There is an indoor paintball place near me now and am revving to go paintball.

If I get more into pump and stock class play I'm getting a Phantom.

Thanks all and good to be back here at the forums.

I'd advise trying out a cheaper pump first, but if you can afford it you could just pick up a used phantom now. If you decide you don't like it, you won't lose much cash in resale.

Depend on what you want, im sure there are people at your field, and you can try out there pumps.
Maverics/tracers and good and cheep, also snipers ( autococker pumps) can be found pretty cheep.

well a great starter pump gun is either a maverick, Trracer, or a PGP... you will have to buy these used, most likely on Ebay... ...

If your not sure if you will enjoy pump play you should try an aci maverick. They are 80 bucks on this site, http://www.bulldogpa...m/maverick.html

this marker is the best buy for a cheap priced pump.

trracers are a decent gun...

...with the exception of wal-marts finest, youll be hard pressed to find a pump that wont serve you well...

Just to simplify mavericks/tracers are the same gun, just different names.

A lot of people suggest a mav as a good first pump gun and I agree, but a used OC phantom can be had for a little bit more and it's much better imo.

the mavericks arent a bad idea at all, but i would reccomend a sniper over it. the reason being with an autococker pump it would be very simple to convert the pump into a great performing semi if you dont like pump play
Can YOU stand straight up behind a pillow and not get shot? Didnt think so. Being short ftw!
