2. Do you want to play with a pump marker?
3. Do you already own your own mask?
Yes to #1, buy a speedball marker. Yes to #2, buy a pump marker. No to #3, buy a mask so you can stop using a rental mask before you even look at a marker.
With a budget of $120 I have to ask, if you buy either can you even get out and play after a marker purchase?
You're not your job. You're not how much money you have in the bank. You're not the car you drive. You're not the contents of your wallet. You're not your fucking khakis. You're the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world.

a used trilogy runs about $75, a new primo is about $15 or you could get a plain VL 200 for about $5. with the grand total being about $80-$90 leaving you $30-$40 for paint and air.

Personally, speedball is more fun with a pump to me. you can't just sit behind one bunker and shut down a lane. You gotta play aggressive and really go for those kills, be sneaky (going through snake with a pump is awesome haha) and play smart.
That said, you've got a ton of options. Phantoms (mainly stock class) are typically really easy to work with. They're reliable and easy to understand.
Autococker pumps really aren't that hard to wrap your head around but to get them working as best as possible takes some tinkering and sometimes some upgrades.
If you just want to play, look for a used phantom or an already setup autococker pump.
if you want a gun that you could really personalize to all your preferences, I'd really push for the autococker. I picked up a Nightkast autococker pump from here a while back and have been tinkering with it and have some upgrades coming in pretty soon. Pretty much just tweaking it exactly how I like it, and when I'm done it may look like a $250 marker but it will shoot like a marker double the price.
