While I was lifting in my basement I was poking around between sets.  Decided to check through some of my paintball stuff and saw the Ariakon ACP 2.0 off to the side with a bag full of 12gram cartridges.  It came to mind that in the 4 years that I've owned the marker, I've never fired it.  That had to be remedied after my workout.

I purchased it brand new with a holster and two extra 10 rnd clips for around $130, which 4 years ago was a steal.  Couldn't be passed up.  Buddy was trying to grab up a bunch of Rapides on eBay so we could play a pistol game, so I had to get my own pistol.  Never liked the long trigger pull of the Rapides anyway.  Found the Ariakon deal and jumped on it.

So, I loaded up all three clips with 10 rounds each.  As I recalled, the Rapides were lucky to get 20 rounds out of a 12gram cartridge.  Wanted to see how efficient this pistol was.  Went through the first clip with no problem even with 2 year old Marbalizers.  Shot about as well as I expected.  Got half way through the 3rd clip when the pistol refused to re-cock.  25 rounds out of a 12gram is about it and totally acceptable.  Did a quick breakdown of the marker after I was done and found it to be more or less a Spyder clone as far as the innards were concerned.  No matter.  I thought it shot great.  I'm definitely interested in playing a pistol only game now.  Just have to learn to swap out magazines fast.  With some practice, I should be able to do it.

I still want to try a pistol only game. Especially somewhere like CPX that has an Urban style field. I think it would be a blast.
