    You've never done a run through till you do it with a pump.

So I have a couple friends at school that want to get into paintball. They are splitting the cost with their parents 50/50. They are asking me for advice but they are set on getting a mid end gun to start out with. I know such guns as the proto reail 2011 are fine shooting markers, how do I get them to think a low end is a better choice when they are ready to drop the cash on a mid end.

tell them that a lowend with a decent hopper and a 4500 psi tank is better than a midend. I would recomend the extcy.

What I would do, is I would talk to them. Try to coerce them that it's a better idea to spend less money so if they don't like the game, they don't take much loss.
