Paintball....

I'm sure a few of you guys on here play. Well, a few friends at work play and I'd love to get back into it if not for anything else but exercise, plus it kicks ass. I haven't played for about 7 or so years. Anyways, when I did play, I always just rented, but now I would like to own my own gun, but I have no clue where to start, or whats good (preferably something that doesnt jam a lot, and is reliable). I know I want a semi-auto (duh) but after that, its all chinese to me. Please help me out here. oh, and I would like to spend no more than $200...

Re: Paintball....

if u only wanna spend 200 bucks on a marker. go with a Spyder (made by kingmann)

their not a highend marker, but they are very reliable and there is actually a pro team "Bad Company" that uses spyders and fukin kill with them all the time.

good quality electro blowback marker!

Re: Paintball....

dont buy it unless you want problems... lol

all the "woods" players and **** swear by tippmanns cuzz they look more like a real gun, I started out playing woods ball, but once I played hyperball and airball .... theres NO going back lol. I played tournament paintball for about 4 years, and anyone that knows what their talking about when it comes to paintball will tell u that - tippmanns have about 50 extra parts that they DONT need, and when they brake down, or something "simple" goes wrong with them, field stripping the gun and fixing the problem is a pain in the fukin ass

dont waste your money or your later on frustration, get a spyder... or... atleast stay away from tippmanns.
