Well I was interested about half a year ago but I never really went through with it so now for real I'm gonna get started with getting myself some gear I estimate I have close to $300 for everything. I know it's not a lot but whatever I'm beginner so sue me! Anyways my friend who, in my opinion, probably isn't that good (I've never played with him but will on next weekend I think) says for me to go with a Tippman A5 but I'm not ready for a commitment that big. So right now I'm looking at Tippman's and Spyders but I'm completely open to anything the good guys suggest. I would like a marker that would cost around $150. So please help me! Thanks in advance guys. Now I gotta search the other similiar posts.
