First Strike FSC Pistol
The First Strike FSC Pistol is a popular sidearm for woodsball scenarios and can even be used for self-defense in some cases. The gun is designed to have a smaller modular grip frame with a short overall length to help with portability and concealability. As such, it makes for an excellent sidearm.
The FSC is powered with portable CO2 cartridges whose weight can be either the 8-gram or the 12-gram cartridges. These cartridges fit inside of the magazines which also hold 6 paintballs. The FSC can use T8.1/9.1 barrels making it one of the most versatile sidearm platforms on the market.
