Im new to paintball really enjoy but tired of using rentals. I was wondering what would be a good set for under $400 for everything (gun, mask, etc.)

You never want to buy those "paintball kits"

 

What are you looking for in a marker and are you willing to buy used?

I agree.  If you could give us a budget we would happily set you up with a great setup to get you started.  Those pre made ones are over priced and usually junky stuff.


If You're Not in the Front, You're Doing it Wrong

Current Setup:
Empire Axe in Gun Metal Grey with Matching Freak Barrel Kit
Dye Rotor
Ninja 50/4500

i feel like both you guys missed the mark completely. pretty sure he is talking about as a setup not a package deal.

Get a 2011 proto rail for 250
A halo for 70
A tank for 40 but it's not going to be the lightest

Ok ummmm

 

Proto EL switch thermal $50

Pinokio/Speed or Fasta $60-$120

and id really get a tank (ninja 68/4500 gray ghost) and throw all this on the rental gun

 

For a gun idk get the extcy black heart but that would all come to $470-500

 

48/3000 steelies are tempting but a 4500psi tank is just so much lighter
