I'm thinking of starting up a small recreational paintball club (i.e. a
bunch of buddies) in which we all only use pistols (no hoppers, no constant
air). These are the pistols I'm thinking about recommending (for those who
want something better than a $20 Walmart pistol):
Recently came out, no reviews yet, no track record. I'm interested in it
because the PT Xtreme is a fun gun, but I don't trust its reliability.
Maybe 32 Degrees improved that with the Delta 68... it's probably too soon
to tell, but does anyone have one yet? If so, how does the build compare to
the PT Xtreme?
Armotech Zeus G2 (or original Zeus)
I have no experience with the Zeus or Zeus G2, but the seem to get high
marks at pbreview.com. Some say if you get semi-auto, go with a Zeus...
anyone have experience with either or these?
PGP2 (or PGP)
I owned a first generation PGP in the late 80s (no spring for ball feed, no
quick release). It was durable, but I really like semi-auto... anyway, some
reviews say semi-auto pistols suck and the PGP/PGP2 is the way to go.
Furthermore, some of those reviews get the PGP and not the PGP2. Any
Thanks for any comments!
On a side note, my reasoning for a pistol club:
1) Both equipment and operating cost are cheaper (per round cost is higher
with a pistol, but you fire a lot less rounds). This is important as some
of the guys who'd be playing are strapped-for-cash college students.
2) In many ways, the game pace seems more fun when playing with pistols
(less sniping and more rushing).
3) Nowadays, everyone says you're crazy to use a pistol as a primary
weapon... but if we all have 'em, that's not an issue.
