Pistols are provably some of the most practical markers for the sniper position.

I'm considering getting one but it is at the bottom of my "things to buy" list.

I'm currently in the process of designing a field that would benefit the pistol user as much as regular marker user. I'm hoping that I can encourage different types of game play giving people more freedom to be creative, both in how they approach the field to what marker/pistol they feel best fits their type of game play.

I love pistols, almost as much as my Marker, but since most fields are design for that quick assault or woodsball, I felt it was necessary to try a different approach. I won't state the details but when Its up and running I'll post some pics to let you guys see what I mean.

Oh yes, leave whatever soul you have left in the field man, I'll be collecting it along with your pride.

it depends on what you doing if your in a airball or woodsball it's not that necessary but for house to house or cqb it would be handy

I carry one every time I play and for all positions. It's a good item to have in your kit.

IMO, it's better to have, then have not. :laugh:



Totally Agree!
once i got a T8, i used it and now am liking to leave primary back at staging and only use the pistol.



Not as a sidearm but primary:

I find the apex to work better on a shorter barrel, 9 inch is perfect for an apex.

and that little guy as evolved a little.

Sidearms are more handy in paintball than in real life. They have all the same range and accuracy potential at a tiny fraction the bulk. I dare say they're probably a lot better than your average full size paintball gun. Unless you're playing speedball where the aim is simply to spray casses and casses of paint the whole time, they can't compete in terms of capacity and rate of fire. Well T9's and maybe some others can compete in terms of capacity because they can be fitted with hoppers...
