Slam firing?

So I just picked up an ACI Hornet to mess around with. I noticed it will slam fire, is it ok to do that or is it not so good? For those of you that don't know about slam firing- it basically means that if you hold down the trigger and pump it will fire with every pump stroke. I'm brand new to pumps and know next to nothing about them. Here's the gun in question:





I found the ICD .45 grip at the shop I hang out at and put the bottom line together from the spare parts bin. Black fittings and line will come as soon as I get them.

It is not called slam firing... that hurts my eyes to read.. lol..
All the Nelson based pumps have an auto-trigger, and thats what you are discribing "auto-trigger" not slam fire.. I do not recomend doing it alot on an older pump such as that. While it won't damage anything, it does put a lot of extra wear on the marker. Its also insanly inaccurate. I suggest just pumping it normally.

Hm, sorry- didn't know there was proper terminology. In airsoft we called it slam firing, with real guns too. But I gather it's not a good idea though? Exactly what I needed to know, thanx

Yes, thats a major reason why paintball has changed the name. Paintball markers are not real guns, and do not want to be considered real guns. Thats also why the term "marker" is used instead of the word gun.

I've never had a marker break because of auto-triggering and I've never heard of it causing any problems. It can be ridiculously inaccurate and I don't think I've ever hit anybody while auto-triggering. I do know that there are lots of pump players that can rip off paint fast enough with an auto-trigger to put electros to shame but it has never worked for me.

Well it does slam the hammer back and forth more violently i guess.
I can see where it does more wear but not a considerable amount unless the gun is rather old or cheap.
