Imo pistol rounds are completely stupid and unfair and the rules need to be more clearly defined but still simple enough for FNGs to understand. I want to write a list of my issues with pistol rounds and my reasons and then try to put it all into a short, simple couple of rules that I can use at my wars and maybe some other people will also find useful.
Pistol splats. If your blaster has a spring in it that is so heavy you need a metal fucking lever so you can prime it, ITS NOT A PISTOL.
Turreted nightfinders that shoot 80ft. This is your primary, you've been using it all day against my primary Im not going to put my primary blaster down just because it has a stock on it.
Mavericks, Furyfires, Tek10s, tek6s. You have a cpvc turret on your nightfinder but I can't use my furyfire? Are you fucking kidding me?
Recon (the bastard child of the nightfinder and the longshot) Its not a pistol, it comes in a box with a stock and rifle barrel. I actually think the recon is fair in a pistol round but recently everyone seems to think that a 35round drum is somehow also fair.
Dart Tag Blaster, Basically what the maverick should have been. Defiantly not dangerous to anyone playing, good ROF power limited by weak priming mech. If turrets are allowed in the round, I say its a pistol.
Wildfire,Powerclip,Magstrike and Rf20. These blasters are the perfect thing to make a pistol round exciting. Fast and Furious, Take forever to reload and prime, forces players to run and gun just like pistol rounds were supposed to be.
ok, pistol definition.
A spring powered muzzle loading blaster with no additional mechanical functions.
Pistol round Definitions.
1. Game with each player using a Single spring pistol.
2. Pistols should be tested on owner at point blank range in an area that is most likely to cause discomfort for the remainder of the day.
3. Stock Darts, Single BB weighted stefens or slug darts (real slug darts are not made with hotglue.)
Modified Pistol round Definitions.
WORKING ON RULES.
