We know the kind of weaponry making heads turn at stores and intriguing eyes on our Ultimate Paintball website. Sure, the latest and greatest paintball markers by Spyder, Tippmann, and other manufacturers is a site to excite any paintball player, yet lesser known, lesser used markers are valuable as well. When was the last time you considered supplementing your big gun with pistol paintball markers?
To start, we’d like to encourage use of a pistol as primary paintball markers despite contrary opinions. Sure, using a pistol has drawbacks including the opportunity to hold less paintballs, less air, and the need for more patience, but there are advantages too. Sometimes simplicity and skill is all you need to make an impact on the field. Have you ever caught the look of an opposing player, holding a high-powered gun in hand, finding they just got taken out by a pistol? It’s a priceless sight!
However, we’re not opposed to progress. The design and response of markers has come a long way. There’s a lot of damage to be done with an advanced paintball marker. Taking a look through our site, you’ll see we definitely encourage the use of high-end guns too.
Using a pistol as a secondary weapon might be the best approach to take. If you like the idea, consider how fast you can load a particular model along with its size and weight. Some pistols are pretty elementary in design, taking a long time to reload. Others are relatively quick to load and worth consideration as a secondary weapon. Additionally, think practically. Pistols are smaller than normal, high-end paintball markers but vary in size. Make sure you can comfortably store the pistol on your person during play and easily aim, letting paintballs fly with one hand.
A pistol comes in the handiest when most needed. Imagine your ensconced in that crucial moment where it’s either going to be you or your opponent who soon meets their fate. Your knee deep in exchanging fire and it’s time to reload. You think, “Damn! Now they have the advantage.” And they might know it. However, if you’re packing an extra paintball marker you don’t have to sacrifice needed seconds. You can grab the pistol and continue taking those crucial shots.
