How do you carry three guns at once?

My (younger) brother uses his CPS 3200 with a Pirahna as a backup.

Two of then have straps. The 4100 in my right hand and the 600 in my left, both hanging from straps. The 500 is on a holster :;):

Hmmm, that's cool. Do you find the pistol effective at all in actual combat? ???

In one battle last year I had to wield a CPS 2500, a 21K, and an 1100 all at once, no straps. When you are outnumbered 4:1, you do desperate things like that. I don't suggest triple wielding unless you are in serious trouble or have really small guns.

Wow, that's a lot of cannons. My 1700 and 2000 should be plenty for me, both having straps. Do you think I will be able to sprint with all that? I am easily able to sprint with my fully-loaded 2000, but once I repair my 1700, I am wondering how fast I will be able to go.

I rarely hit a top speed sprint with more than one gun. One is optimal if you want to run your fastest.

Yes. The Storm 500 is excellent in combat despite what others may say.

I like running, it means I can unload on someone, using my CPS 2000, and run away a bit to repump. It also is more fun. :D But I guess there is some sacrifice for extra power. In your wars, do you prefer heavier, more powerful guns like the 2000/2500 size, or less powerful lighter guns like the 1000/1200/2100 size? And would you prefer to have more guns and power, but be slower, or less guns and power, but be faster?

I have found one of the most effective ways of using speed to your advantage. When the enemy retreats, what I do, and a few others on my team, is sprint them down and try to nail them in the back. This works amazingly well, as long as you are able to pump somewhere along the way. What really sucks is closing to within 10 ft of a fleeing enemy, firing, and having nothing happen.

As for the other question, I am a big rebel there. The weight of my gun rarely affects my speed and I like to put big power in medium sized guns. The CPS 2500 is still my favorite stock gun, although I've figured that the other team is more intimidated by my long range 2100-based modded guns, so I use those more often.

So you don't like the 1500/1700? I elected to get my 1700 rather than the 2500 because its PC is bigger and it shoots a bit farther. And the 20x nozzle isn't that much of an advantage.
And yeah, I probably would be intimidated by one of your modded 2100's. I should make a deal with you sometime to buy one from you. :D They sound pretty good.

EDIT: 20th post in one day! :D

I actually am looking to acquire a 1500 or 1700, but not for the usual reason. When I get one, it's going into a 1521 or 15.21K, the most powerful spherical pc integration one can make.

If you want a 21K, send a PM. It would take a while to make though, since Sports Authority ran out of the 2100 overstock months ago, and I would need to find a 2100 somewhere...

Which kind of mod is this? Do you put the 1500 PC into the 2100 or the 2100 PC into the 1500?

Yeah, I might just do that sometime. I'll have to think about it for a bit though, and I have no idea how I would send you money but by mail, and that's risky... :cool:

This whole page explains it.

Money orders are safe, as is Paypal. But we are getting off topic, so any further discussion about it should be done elsewhere...

Tried out my 1700/2000 combo, though not in an actual war. (Fixed the strap, Yay! It works better that if te strap hadn't been broken in the first place!) I definitely move slower, though I can still use my guns and pump them effectively. I'll have to try it in an actual war sometime. :cps2000: :cps1500:

One one occasion in a story I'll type about this, but I dual-wielded 2 Storm 500's in an evening fight.

I had a WG fight a couple days ago and I used my Piranha as my main and a CPS 1000 as a backup.

I'm using my CPS 1000 as my main and my Blazer. I might drop the Blazer this year for a MI Flash FLood. And my CPS 4100 MK2 will find use after I fix the trigger.

I going to try to dual weild two XP 310's. The only problem is that my aim is off greatly and i'm not usally to good at handling to waterguns at once, I might be able to double weild two waterguns with straps though. :)
