Really wanting a pump...

Due to recent experiences (money tree dying, paintball fun-levels declining, guns breaking, ect) im seriously wanting a pump right now.

I used to be able to go to the field, spend 70 or 80 dollars for a days worth of playing, and in the end truely think it was worth all the money. Well due to my lack of interest in paintball lately, i dont think that its worth it anymore. its the same routine every time I go ballin: Arrive. Guns immediatly have issues. Spend first half hour fixing gun. Get gun(s) working, shoot some people up, because the noobs wont have a chance, guns dont work right soon afterwards. Watch my entree fee money go down the drain while wasting time fixing gun. Finally fix gun again. shoot a few more people. leave. feel bad that i spent 80 dollars to play 10 games, 5 of which with a broken gun, in an 8 hour period.

i just spend 140 dollars overhauling my timmy, and now my shocker needs a new noid. perfect. im sick of the guns breaking.

Im thinking about fixing my shocker to sell it, so i can use some of the money to buy a super nice phantom, but first i have a few questions.

1) Where do you get them at? lol dumb question probably, but i can't find them anywhere online or at my proshops.
2) I kinda want to use a regular air source, not the 12 grams. is there any way to do this? Can i use a high output nitro tank? How many shots would i expect to get off a 45/45?
3) How much does a nice phantom cost? Also what kind would you recomend?
4) Where do you get that velocity adjuster rod/thing from? Does one come with a phantom?
5) Do you think switching to pump will give me the challenge i need and the dependability and cost cutting too?

1. Wevopaintball.com, stockclassforum.com (go to message board and bst), bunkerboyz.com/phog (bst), pbnation.com

In that order.
2. 3.5 ounce tank. Also availiable from wevo. It's the way to go.
3. $200 to $250. I reccomend VSC. 15 round feed tube, vertical air, 45 grip. Perfect for 3.5 ounce tank set ups, and you can run a bottomline too.
4. I think so, but if not they cost like $5 from wevo, I bought an extra one just in case.
5. Yes.


So to recap...

If you want new, go all out on a good phantom, tank, and accesories from wevo.

If used, buy off of a bst in a package deal, most are $200, many come with 3.5 ounce tank, velocity adjuster, multiple set ups (direct feed and stock feed), and many other goodies.

Step 1: Sell off your other electros and get a viking if you want a electro that will be a workhorse.

Step 2: Figure out which pump style you like more. I was used to cockers when I started playing pump and found a phantom to be to small and hard to shoot people with. So I switched to a sniper2 and found that I was able to play pump much better. If you have been playing with the shocker a lot you would most likely like the phantom more. If you have been playing with the timmy more, you might like a sniper 2 more.

if i were you I'd sell both, pick up a dm4 and a phantom.
you won't have nearly as many gun problems, and you'll save $

i think im going to go with a phantom because honestly, i like the way they look more. and i like that they are smaller than the sniper's.

thanks for the advice
