let's say you're running and gunning with your team, and suddenly, you fall victim to an enemy, and you're pretty much out of paint in your hopper. if you took the time to reload, you'd be out. in order to keep the enemy off of you, you would be able to pull out a sidearm, and keep your enemy off of you. He'd be out, and you'd be able to re-load and keep going.
And as it stands, there are no rule precluding you from carring and/or using a sidearm during the SPPL.
Pistols are lighter than regular rifles, so if you ran around with a pistol that had the same stopping power as a rifle, that's like carrying two Tippmans or any two paintball guns onto one field. That's a lot of paint to carry around.
Huh? That is clear as mud. What are you trying to get at?
And you are right they work fine. In fact Grunt used one in his game against the California Gridlock team....he shot T-Devil with a Tac8.
So...do you think you should be able to use your pistol after your primary gun/hopper/tank has been hit? That is the question here.
