"To me, Bud Orr isn't innovative.. *poof* !"
Just to set the record straight:
Bud didn't put a ram on his guns until I showed him how to adapt my system to his guns. However, you are close to the reason why pumps got automated. I built the first functional, gravity fed semi for myself in the fall of 1988 because I have a very bad shoulder left over from a Hi-school football injury and the act of pumping a paintgun several hundred times a day was killing me. I was faced with a choice of either figuring out how to automate my gun or basically quit playing Paintball. I was too badly hooked on the game to quit.
