    Good footwear like walking or combat boots are a good investment for a beginner in woodsball or scenario, they will help prevent ankle injuries and make it easier to grip mud and uneven ground.

    Fairly new to the game, using a very very basic gun in a Tipman gryphon (yes I'm well aware these are terrible guns but it was a buy to get into the game with the view to upgrading very soon after) would anyone have any advice on where would be best to get a second hand etha? I know a few players that use them and with limited funds to get an upgrade I've been advised a second hand etha is probably the best way to go?

    I would agree with GRIMLOCK with the classifieds, I only joined P8ntballer since sept and ive been looking at the for sale forum on here and this is the best place to pick up some reasonably priced gear, At the moment I'm looking to get a Planet Eclipse LV1 and i am seeing they are going for around £350-£450 with 50,000-90,000 shots and compare that to brand new you be looking around £1000 and with Models that would be cheaper new the price goes down, you can pick up an Etha for around £200 on here.

    But for other people out there here is everything I bought the first time I bought my own gear :)

    Tippmann Sierra One
    Proto 3k/48
    Proto Primo Hopper
    Empire Events

    All this cost me £301.85

    Extras I wanted for my set up.

    Valken 4+1
    Remote MicroLine with Slide Check
    Valken Marker Case
    Exalt Barrel Maid
    Empire Events Lens Ninja Black (Got this extra for sunny days)

    Then the final price was £400.60 with the rest added.

    I hope that seeing a list of everything I got with price it helps some people with looking for their first set up and the kind of things to buy first and somethings that are extra :)
