Where does pump come from?
Pump-action guns, or slide-action guns, date back to the late 19th century. The shortened pump is found on Urban Dictionary by 2003.
Pump has notably been used in rap songs, including Cardi B’s 2017 “Bartier Cardi” where she raps: “I’m from the motherfuckin’ Bronx (Bronx) / I keep the pump in the trunk (trunk).” This refers to a shotgun she, apparently, keeps in the trunk of her car.
Earlier, pump appeared on rapper The Game’s 2011 “Heavy Artillery”: “Take em back to Boyz in da Hood when I pull the pump out / Something like C-Murder on Worldstar when I dump out.”
First-person shooter (FPS) video games frequently include a pump shotgun weapon, which players often shorten to pump. Games like Destiny, Halo, Call of Duty, and Fortnite, all very popular in the 2000s, have featured pumps.

Who uses pump?
Rappers often use pump in their lyrics. Besides Cardi B and The Game, Offset and Fat Joe have each also used pump in their lyrics, usually in an intimidating way.
The only people who probably use pump more than rappers are gun lovers and hunters, yes, but also gamers. Since pump shotguns are common in most FPS games and are generally powerful close range weapons, gamers talk about them…a lot.
Looks like our sign-in services might've gotten double-ramp double-wall rushed into submission. Luckily, our engineers are build-gods and are working to get the high ground on these noobs. Please bear with us as we try and get this dub. (like if you miss double-pump)

Some interesting trivia: Ever notice pumps being used a lot in movies? That’s because they don’t need to be modified to shoot blanks like other guns do.
