You could learn something from stock class play
Alvin Caragay  November 1995


Games played with 50 rounds in your pocket can be done, and are done every day on the west coast. Stock gun games are a big thing out there which is rarely seen here on the east coast of the us. I myself just got back from a pleasure/paintball trip to Hawaii, and i must say that the level of play there is very competitive. Team Ronin, and Tropical lighnting are probably the two largest, most experienced teams on the islands, and they are very good players. I think half of the reason for their great skill lies in the fact that majority if not all of the players play stock class paintball on a regular basis, against pumps as well as the fastest semis, and let me tell you that they can hold their own against the semi's.

 Stock play teaches the importance of movement into position since your rate of fire is very limited. You have to make your shots count. With this in mind, they become excellent movers and crawlers, so their movement skills are second to none, as well as their accuraccy. Now if you take those movement skills and you combine them with the rate of fire of a semi than you have one hell of a paintball player.

 Stock guns are by no means a thing to laugh at at the field. One of the guys that i heard about had moved from the islands,and went to play at a field somewhere on the mainland where even pump class was unheard of. He strolled out onto the field with his stock class paintgun, and most of the people on the field laughed at the fact that he had the guts to go out there with just a pump, much less a stock class pump. Well, much to their surprise, many of those people found themselves on the recieving end of that stock gun and soon found themselves walking off the field in bewilderment. When asked again about his experience as a paintball player, the guy with the stock gun replied," Where I come from, I'm just an average player." The point i'm trying to make is that pumps, and stock class guns are no joke. They're a great addition to any players arsenal. It'll help your playing skills if you're already an experienced player, and will help you build a solid foundation to build on if you're a new player. If you're on the field, and someone walks out there with a nelspot 007, don't laugh. You may just find yourself eating your own words even though you spent a bizillion dollars on your gun and you can shoot a bizillion shots a second.

 By the way, In case you were wondering, I myself play with an autococker that can probably shoot a bizillion times a second, but right now, I'm planning on busting out my old nelspot 007 that I had carter machine breathe new life into, and working on my stock class game. I think it will be a very beneficial experience for my game.=)
