So I am 13 and getting into paintball and I own a spider emr1 that I plan to use for tournament. My problem is my local field (Jagger's) won't let you use a etriggerd paintball gun on there field except in tournaments. But I want to get better before I do any tournaments by playing up there on the weekends. So I have to buy a semi auto gun for up there. I also don't know what gun would be good because the paint balling up there is in caves so I don't know what type of gun to get. Oh hand I forgot to mention one thing I only have 150$ so please help me.

Go look at the gog enmey. Super light, and a much better option than the kaos and A5. The enmey is light, smooth, and has a nice trigger pull. It has a tool less bolt cap, and has no metal on metal wear. Plus it's only 130.

This is a tough answer. Some are going to say you need to spend at least 100.00 on a mask to get the quality. Some will say cheaper models are just fine. To me, the best mask available is the VForce Profilers. Midrange price, high end quality and best field of vision in the game. They fit the vast majority of faces and have a quick change lense. However, you really should try on as many different masks as you can before you buy.

Jaegers will let you use electronic markers. But the enmey blows every markers in the sub $150 price range. As for masks try on as many as you can. I recommend the proflex or the profilers for a budget.

Also, a mask that I got for my brother that actually isn't too bad is the Valken/Sly MI-9. Rubber bottoms, quick change lenses, comfortable foam, and decently breathable and doesn't restrict speaking.

Everyone is different. However, as you play in caves, I'd advise against the Sly Profit's. In Arizona, it's a death sentence to play in them because of the intense heat and the lack of good breathability. Try on as many masks as you can, and, if possible, do so without a cap on money. Don't even think about the price. Just look at all the high quality masks, even the higher quality mid ends are worth looking at. Pick which one you like the best. The I4's are the most expensive, but that doesn't mean that they're for anyone. Grills are the cheapest of the high ends, yet are excellent for many people. Don't think about price, just look at what you like.

Get the GoG Enmey. It's my field's rental markers. I used one when my gun went down at the field and couldn't fix it. They shoot smooth, are regulated, and have a good clamping feed neck. Down the road I would think about upgrading to a CP one piece barrel.

Jaegers (Missouri?) will let u use an etrigger but you have to play with the adults. You can't play in the youth fields. Also, 280 paintball will let u use an etrigger but there aren't as many players
