Well taken out of game for a little while So naturally have the new gun itchi

So natuarly I now have a hankering to get me a new marker to play with once back in the game. So I thinking (being as I on disability and not making alot now) to sell off a bunch of my gear to fund the purchase. I plan to sell my Tippmann A5, DP E1, and empier Traccer. Along with some barrels a 56ci 4500 tank and a halo 2 hopper. All to fund either a new Tippmann crossover or a coustom automag or kingmans new hammer 7, or a Empire Sniper.
So I need advice. I love mags always have been using them since they ruled the tourney scene. Also love tippmans and the crossover seams the best of both my loves. But on the other hand mag feed is fun and I mostly shoot pump these days.
And lastly if ya wordering my poor little kawasaki was a complete write off the front tire actually punctured the engine casing. The fuel tank was caved in by my body and generally the bike is just a mess. I am told and feel very luck to be alive and even luckier still to have both legs. That being said I will be back on a bike next summer the bike I still have in the garage I Love riding and will nof quite due to this in incident. Yeah it sucks yes this hurts more than I can explain, I still have a whole in my leg as there was not enuff tissue left to close the wound after surgery so I have nurses coming daily to pack the wound so it heals correctly. I have a steel rod hammered into the bone and secured with screws at both ends. But in spite of this motorcycles still mean everything to me and I can not wait to get back on the bike (just maybe a bit slower and with brighter gear). Oh and I also don't hate the lady that hit me it was an accident and I'm sure she feels bad. She did not see me and it's a risk I knew I take when I get on the bike.
But any ways enuff rambling what would you all suggest gun wise. Tippmann Crossover, Coustom Automag, Kingman Hammer 7, or Empire Sniper. Thanks all in advance and sorry for the long post.

Personally I would go for the Mag since you could get a pretty bad ass one for the price of a crossover. The crossover would be my next choice (out of the ones given) since its design is based off the automag lol )

But that being said. Most times i out playing I use my Tippmann SL68-II. It is my preferred pump and I enjoy the game alot using it. I have been urged at my local field to give a go at the empire sniper. Even been offered to have it lent to me for the day to try. But I have no fault in my little Tippmann it simply works for me and is easy as pie to use and maintain.
Also the kinsman is just cool. It offers the pump play I have always enjoyed since day one in this sport with the mag feed I just starting to dabble in this year with the purchase of my T8.1.
Lastly. My use for my gear I use it all the same. Is just general all round play. Rec, speed, indoors, outdoors, scenario it's all same to me I enjoy it all.

As to the bike, I really hope her insurance company is paying for a new bike and lost wages, so that you don't have to sell your equipment to get your new mag.

As for the lost wages well I get disability threw my work benefits and a bit fro
The auto insurance but still only equates to half my normal earnings. Enuff to get by but not much else.
As for the gun resale. Well I don't tend to sell gear too much. I still own my first two markers. So resale does not concern me too much. I selling off my less used markers to fund this next purchase for two reasons. One I dont use the guns I selling often (only one I really like shooting is the A5 but it chops brittle paint bad so don't get to use it much) and could use the $$ a bit. The other reason is I have a few more guns then I need and would like to down size the collection a bit. I want to keep my three older guns witch don't see use but maybe couple times a year. And my reg use guns I want a pump, a good semi all round use gun, and my pistol for CQB style games.

As to the marker, I'd still go Automag, even though you're not planning on reselling it, but I am an AGD fanboy, so I'm really biased. The thing with a Crossover is you get just that, a Crossover. Your Crossover will look like every other Crossover, and it will be really bland and boring. But with an Automag, you can make it as unique as you want. My goal, once I get a job and money, is to get a warp left body, cut the back half off and replace it with carbon fiber, get a Deadly Wind carbon fiber barrel and front grip, either an Airwalk frame or a 90* frame, an X-Valve, and a nice looking ASA. Figure it will cost me about $600 or so, when all is said and done, depending on what rail I get, but it will look gorgeous, and it will be all mine. Then I'll send it out for a custom anno, possibly some lasering, and I'll be the only person in the world that has what I have. With a Crossover, your's will look like the next guys.

As for insurance ya it kinda sucks. But some of the money is coming from the ladies insurance as she has been charged with carless driving. There were many witnesses and some of witch I credit with helping to save my life and leg. Cause when I came too laying on the highway a bunch of people were there at my side offering comforting words and holding me still to prevent me hurting myself further untill the paramedics showed up. As for my medical bills yes the stuff not covered by the Canadian government is covered by either my benefits my auto insurance or the ladys insurance.

I dont really know how to explain this but to sum up you wouldnt be able to sell it on paintball sites because tippmann are too well known for what they are truly known on here, and it might be hard to sell locally because it does not look like the average milsim tippy

I would go automag though. They are easier on paint than tippmanns, smaller, and more unique. Everyone and their brother has a tippmann.
Rest In Peace
