Get a proto slg, or a proto rail. In my opionion, these are AMAZING guns for their small price their asking for. You should probably go for it.

get a gun that doesn't require a lot of maintenance dont from a spyder to an ego if you don't know how to take care, if you do than wait for the buy sell and trade to come up and look there or proto SLG
your life is in my hands and you don't even know it

pm5s are great, smooth, accurate, and dirt cheap. with all that extra cash in your pocket you can go out and buy yourself a decent mask or pants and/or a jersey.

i think you can get a used one w/ a virtue board for 160$ on ebay

browse badlands (www.badlandspaintball.com)

They have locations in Toronto, hamilton, winnipeg, Calgay, and Vancouver.

Look for something that catches your eye, maybe ask about it here, if you like what you see and hear from us, check around locally for better prices if you don't find any then they're more than legit to buy from. Though im not sure on they're shipping prices because i just drive to toronto if i can't get what i need locally.

I thought no one else would say this, they are amazing guns for the price they run at now and you can easily find nice ones for under 200.

For the same price that you buy an ion for, you can get that pm5 with a virtue board on ebay like " Garlic Man " said. It all depends on what your price range is, like I posted before, you can get an 06 ego for $400. And, Benjy.. just because she is a girl she has to have pink? maybe she likes it, maybe she doesn't. I have a pink dm8, does that make me a girl?

worst advice ever...... ions are no longer the bargain that they usto be....

get a used protege $400 - $450 that would be my personal choice, i have one, they are great

or you could get an 06 ego for the same price...

if you didnt want to spend quite that much, you can get a proto SLG in the $200 range and still be upgrading

Well, for starters, the equipment says nothing about how "noobish" you are. Consistently showing people that you're willing to take advice, and get better will make you not look like a n00b. But, to directly answer your question, I would agree with c0tt0n i joe and find a used gun like an '06 Ego.
