Today, 08:28 PMIf you dont know which one you want you arent ready for one yet. Spend your money on paint and hold and shoot as many different markers as you can. Once you have an idea of what you like and dont it will be quite simple to find the marker that fits you.
This man speaks the truth. Only way you can decide is to get ya hands on the guns your considering and try them, especially with a purchase that expensive.
19 May 2013 - 11:48 PMThe E1 has a better more adjustable trigger and stock break beam eyes so for pure semi play I think the DP E1 is the way to go in that price point. But honestly there both really good little entry level shooters.
I opted myself for the E1 for a few reasons I only shoot semi, I liked the fact that it had eyes without the need of a upgraded bored and that it is constructed of all aluminum and has a very good ano finish. Also as I have two other guns with cocker barrel threads that too was a selling point for the DP E1 to me.
I run mine with a 14" Proto barrel (easier aiming reference), and DP clamping feedneck. Other than that I see no reason for other upgrades.
But there are a few reasons to opt for a Envy instead. For one the Envy is slightly more efficient, also it can be run on Co2 in a pinch were as the DP E1 requires HPA ONLY. And from Internet reports I hear GOG has far better customer support than DP but I can not comment on that as in the 2 years I have owned my E1 I have had no issues and thus never dealt or contacted DP for any reason.
19 May 2013 - 06:57 AMPretty much as stated in paint ball scopes are pretty much useless. 15 years ago when I was a newb I wanted a scope on my Tippmann Pro/Carbine so I took the 4x zoom one I had on my .22 rifle and put it on my carbine. Learned real quick it was pointless for anything but looking ahead on the trail and even then kinda silly as anything I could not see naked eye I had no chance of hitting.
If you must put any kind of optic on a paintball gun I find I like Red dot sights. They offer you a very quick sighting REFERANCES and you can adjust from there. Actually found a pic of my Carbine with the scope and my old Phantom with a cheap crossman red dot sight.

17 May 2013 - 01:05 PMAfter buying and selling as many cars as myself you get used to the game.
Had a 99 Ford Ranger for about 4 years. Bought it a year old with only 25,000kms on it from a small used car lot. Truck was immaculate but the check engine light was on and ran like a bag of crap. Got it for $14000 due to the issues. Drove away from car lot Streight to Ford dealer got the O2 sensors and IAC replaced under warranty and even got a free rental for a day. Drove it for 4 years after with absolutely no other issues and sold it for $9000
I bought an 04 Jetta TDI once for $17,900 back in 05. Three years latter and another 100,000kms and I sold the car for $16,000 to a dealership no less.
Bought a older 1986 golf diesel for $1000 with a bunch of spare parts including a spare engine and trans. Sold off the spares for $600 drove the car for couple years lent it to my brother for another year. Put only maybe $400 into it or repairs and sold it for $600 in all that time. Heck I rarely bought even fuel for that car as I'm a diesel mechanic for a living. Every fuel filter I changed got drained into a Jerry can and put in that car.
You can get cars and not spend ALOT of cash and have reliable transport for many years. Just takes a bit of patients and to know we're and what to look for.
That being said my last three cars and few of my bikes I purchased new. And you will always get screwed on new cars purely out depreciation. But ALOT of those "dealer fees" can be skirted with good negotiating. My current Toyota I purchased new and got it at price advertised even with the options I added.
