Well what type of paintball are you guys playing, speedball or woodsball? If you're playing speedball and need a good, yet cheap marker, try out the Azodin Kaos or Blitz. If your friends are still beginners, you want to get a cheaper gun (Kaos) so you can fit your budget. If your friends are pretty good, try a Blitz and let them rent out the other stuff. Make sure you get lower grade paint with the Kaos though.
If you guys are playing woodsball, do try a used tippman, as they will probably be in good condition. You'll be able to get your other gear as well. Since woodsball is a slower game, a Kaos wouldn't be a bad idea if you upgrade the barrel.
Things to look out for on the Kaos:
-bolt strikes hard
-no regulator (high pressure marker)
These all mean that you have to shoot slowly, otherwise your paint will constantly break.
I'd rather have the regulated Blitz or eNMy regardless of speed or woods ball, consisnancy might even be more of an issue with the longer ranges of woods ball
And I would get the "other stuff" (Mask and loader mainly) and rent out the gun than the other way around
