: Hi All,

: After behind in physical rehab for 4 months, I can finally play paintball again. A friend of mine is starting a team and I'd like to join, but I have a question I need to have answered first.

: I currently own a Spyder Electra, which has semi-auto, 3-shot/6-shot burst, and full auto options. I understand that almost all tourny rules say that only pump-action and semi-auto markers are allowed. Is the Spyder Electra legal for a tournament so long as I keep it in semi-auto mode, or do I have to pick up another marker that is strictly semi-auto?

: Thanks for any help provided,
: Crimsus

Ultimately it depends on the rules of the tournament you plan to play. Most tournaments use rules similar to the NPPL, PSP, or IAO/Pan Am rule sets. These three rule sets allow multimode guns as long as they are locked into semi-auto and can not be changed into another mode without the use of tools (and you can be eliminated from the game for having tools on the field.)

See you on the field,
-Bill Mills
