Look for used pads on PBN or a Facebook BST group.

In Topic: Etek 5 or a Geo 2.1

I would not go with a pre-3 Geo, so given that I would recommend the Etek 5 out of those two. But if you can snag a 3.1 within your budget, that's a great route. Obvoiusly, preference is big here--do you prefer spools or poppets? The Etek 5 is a very nice shooter and feels great in the hands but the 3+ Geos are fantastic, as well.

They look the same to me. I know for sure that the geo 3 and 2.1 use the same regulator and ASA, same gripframe and grips. I believe the only differences between the geo 2.1 and 3 are milling, eye covers, and the allen key adjustable solenoid. I myself have owned a Geo 2 in the past and it is a good marker. However I would not get a geo 1 or geo +. But the geo 2.1 is definitely a good option.
 
Edit: Geo 3 has a soft tip bolt, but an upgradable soft tip is available for the 2.1

They may look similar but that doesnt mean a whole lot. Due to the Geo 3's solenoid it can get significantly better efficiency (I believe Eclipse calls it the ICSIS valve or something like that).

The Geo 2/2.1 is still great, but 3s barely $100 more now so unless youre on a tight budget its worth it to get a 3 IMO.

In Topic: Walking the Trigger

Dont put your hand at an angle. Keep your hand around the grip like you're holding a pistol.

That wont help you walk the trigger but it helps immensely with proper form.

What do you shoot?

The bargaining position is completely different. There is far more to their bartering than merely throwing out a low number.
