Using Only Two Paintball Pistols

"You only use two pistols?"

I'm often asked that question. Yes, I only use two pistols, sometimes three if you consider my Sarge Kit a pistol. I've been using pistols since I started playing paintball in 2008. I've owned all types of pistols and used them in all types of environments.

When you only use pistols, they have to work every time. I have my share of stories about pistols that have failed me. That is of course until I was given a pair of Tippmann TPX’s and asked my option of them. Well, that was in 2010, and for the past four years I have only positive stories not negative ones. I have since acquired 6 more, and my original ones still work great.

So, why only pistols? My playing style dictates it. I like playing CQB. My home field is Hollywood Sports Park in Bellflower, CA. It’s an old golf course that has been turned into a paintball park. It has lots of houses and mazes that I like to run, hunt and hide in. Because I use two pistols, I’m able to maneuver quickly and cover twice as many locations as say someone with their focus on one door or window.



I do a lot of surrendering because I have limited paint, also it’s my attitude and I try to play like a gentleman. A lot of times I even do “Catch and release” allowing the player to continue the game.

I’m sponsored by several companies, and can afford to use endless amounts of paint per day. I actually only use around 50 to 70 balls per day. It takes me around 6 months to use a case of paint.

I know I’m not the only one who uses only two pistols, in fact here are some other guys that duel wield:
Hector V. Austad, Las Vegas NV, Antonio Falcon Chicago Ill, Colt H. Farmer Los Angeles CA


If you see any of us on the field, come over and introduce yourself, I’ll even let you use my extra pistols.
