In Topic: Gear, bad idea?

probably a bad idea. If it's hard rubber/plastic it will cause more breaks, meaning you'll be getting shot out easily if people get a shot on that.

Really, you could just wear a t shirt, a hoodie sweater, and you'd be fine!

You could find some pants for like $40-60... as long as it's not the latest edition pants and probably pretty simple it's a great buy. I think out of all gear, except the mask, pants are the thing you want to make sure you have DEDICATED paintball pants. built for paintball. The padding helps so much. Went in jeans one day and hated it.

Other than that, just run around in a baggy sweater with a tee underneath. Gets a lot of bounces too.

I wouldn't go with RPS Polar Ice.... Some people have good experiences, and some have bad. I think there's an issue with polar ice's quality control. But yeah, use something with a thicker shell or you'll be getting barrel breaks a lot.

If it's really about budget, and you're still new to pump, check paintballgateway.com if you want to buy new.

If you want to buy used, look in the BST or ebay for autococker sniper pumps (sniper just means mechanical converted to pump).

You could save a bit more and get a used CCM gun, which are basically the Egos of the pump world. The Empire Sniper's main allure is its attachments that it comes with: the barrel kit, stock class stick feed, hitman mod on the pump handle.. I haven't heard much raving about the actual gun design or anything.

I traded my old invert mini for an autococker sniper, bought some CCM upgrades for it, and a small barrel kit. Saved a bit of money, and when I get my parts later today it should shoot pretty great.

I'd pick up a good CF tank, steelies get the job done but the lighter carbon fiber tanks just make a world of difference. Then after that probably a gun of your choice, if you really feel like an upgrade. New hopper after that, but not necessary I guess. I liked the Empire Prophecy a lot, not a fan of rotors and haven't tried a pinokio yet. the Velocity gets the job done though, unless you really pimp out your marker or go to a field where refs don't care your gun will have capped bps and most ramping modes are setup to have caps too.
