wow, i just only post this a while back and already 4 replies. Thanks you guys for the fast reply. Eventhough I'm a newbie to this sport but I actually hear people at the paintball place talk about Tippmann alot. As a matter of fact, most of the rental guns there are Tippmann. I also hear about smart parts too. I did some research before i came to this forum and these are the ones that I like: Tippmann A-5, X-7, Smart Parts SP1 and Kingman Spyder MR2.
As for SLC I did check them out and they look pretty good too. I forgot to mention that I want an electronic marker.
Also, I want to know if it's better to buy everything separately or buy a package deal?
Well we really need to know your budget, and in all honesty, I think you should rent a few more times before buying. I mean, you've only played once. I'd say rent at least twice more, and then when you have some cash, we can discuss some packages.
Feel free to PM me whenever with questions. I tech guns and I also put gun packages together for people (when they don't know the sites, etc)
I did mentioned about my budget range. I want to spend somewhere from $200 to $400 dollars. Well, the thing i don't like about the guns at the painball place is because it doesn't shoot straight. When you shoot, the ball kind curve to the side instead of going straight. Also, i don't like how you keep having to pull the trigger for every shot. I see one guy brought his own gun and he said that his gun has semi-auto which shoot like 15 bps. I like something like that.
