Also, technically it should be 'which do you like best', because there are more than two choices.
Pump for sure though. We get all the fun toys. My fastest paint slinger is my Pro-Carbine. I can get it up to 7 or 8 bps though.

I try to not focus on electro/pump/mech but rather why marker X is better than marker Y. Usually it depends on consistency and efficiency, which is why I'm starting to like electros.

HOWEVER, I absolutely balls-out LOOOOVE playing pistol. Just, in a different kind of way. When I walk onto the field with nothing but my tac-8, I feel like I'm on top of a windy mountain covered with ice and polar bears! Which is fun, somehow.
But for performance, maintenance, accuracy, effectiveness, and great happy success.... electro.

I've played all three styles, with markers ranging from new hammers and razorbacks to my timmy and recently, a borrowed shocker (bleh)
Electro is by far my favorite. the blowbacks have a certain realistic heaviness to them, but they're really not that much fun to shoot. Pumps feel like toys, too light and flimsy (I've broken more than my fair share of pumps- arms and frames, especially.
I love my Timmy though. Hell, I love my IR3 (even with as broken as it is). They're lovely to shoot, they're sick to play with (especially the angel, which was my first highend, and will always hold a place in my heart) and they're durable as hell.
The other side of it is, I'm a technophile. I'll admit it. I love Tech toys- my room is filled with bits and peices of varoius custom and prototype bitz for a half dozen markers, and I'm always looking to build/buy the next toy for my rig. Mechs and pumps are too simple for me. I mean, I own one of each, as backup and thrid markers, but my electros absorb most of my tinkering time.
