They are all the best on one hand.
If your going for power, hybrid is your thing. For usability, pneumatic is good in your backyard, and in the woods where no compressor is available, combustion does the job.
Electromagnetic ones are not really that powerfull unless youve got yourself one hell of a big fat capacitor array.

Id vote for pneumatics, since they are the most versatile in my opinion, and secondly, combustions are not legal in my country.

I also voted pneumatic. in combustions and hybrids you have to figure out so much stuff just to get it to shoot, and a hybrid usually costs more. for a pnuematic you just pump it up and fire.

pneumatics since they are relatively simple in use while still quite powerful when compared to other types of guns (well I know it's simplification to some extent)

Pneumatics. That suit every experience range, from simple easy ball valves to high powered complicated piston valves. They are always reliable unlike simple combustions, and slightly less dangerous and complicated than hybrids. I wouldn't really know where to start with an EM cannon!

I also agree with the rest in saying pneumatics.
Much more reliable from my personal experience

Well I said Pneumatic, same as everyone else.
Even after I made my hybrid I went back to pneumatics, the are just cheaper to make and so much easier to use.

Hybrid, satisfying muzzle flash. But a bit fiddly.

That was exactly the thought I had when I saw this topic.
But it was a long time ago since I've seen such a topic, so I think this one can be allowed right? And hey, 20 or 21, whats the difference xD

im all alone on this one.... electromagnetic all the way. Im more electrically inclined, plus, with the constant chance of dying or being severly burned, it has to be fun 8)

On top of that, electromagnetic can propel objects to insane speeds, close to the speed of light (partical accelerators). Only 5 KJ in a railgun takes it right past the speed of sound. Im a pyro too, but dense plasma beats fire anyday.
Psy, it doesnt have to be that big....


On the downside, there dangerous, and require lots of maintanece.
