Just wondering what people preferred as their backup blaster or sidearm. i picked up a pack of hornets the other day (thankfully they didnt sting). But they come two to a package with belt clips (not the best clips but they still help). so post back with what else you use.
more reliable then a max-D trigger

I use dual CPS 2700s. It's actually not that bad, once you learn how to hold them right. I would also carry my CPS 1700 and 2100, but the 1700 isn't as good and the 2100 is still apart from my botched K-mod attempt.

Usually, I don't carry more than one soaker unless I'm dual-wielding pistols, though I'll occasionally strap a loaded and disconnected 3200 over my shoulder in addition to my Pirahna or SC600.

My backup is usually an XP-240 but sometimes I use bigger guns like the XP-70 etc. but I usually don't even end up having to use my backup.

I use a Storm 500 or an XP-20 :D Storm 500 is an EXCELLENT sidearm.:;):

I now use a FF (soon to be colossus modded, cvf-ed, and have the main nozzle drilled out a little) as a backup to my Colossus modded monster and APD combo. :angry:

hahaha! :bm2700: :oo:
wow, i would hate to be on the opposite side as you... unless i could sneak up behind! :cps1500: :bm2700: wow anyways i use double XP 220's and i might switch to a CPS 1k if i can repair it. i hold the 220's in my coat pockets. also they're durable. my mom ran one of my 220's over with her car and it still works perfectly. sometimes i use storm 500's but they only hold like a tablespoon of water...
