Your not bright, are you. Read the rules first thier dude. Mini are nice and small and all that stuff. But they have a lot of little issues. Especially at first. EOS is really nice with some nice features added that comes stock with the gun. Plus, it just looks awesome. But any gun should be tried out first before bought to see if you like how it feels. Go to your local paintball shop and see if they'll let you hold one or maybe even shoot one. I have an EOS and I love it.

Go to the mini forum and you'll here the exact oposite answers. But the minis at my store are 349, and 425 for the EOS. That 75 bux I took and spent on a new hopper.

I won't tell you to buy an EOS just because I own one. I will tell you that the Mini is not that great and has several issues, which you can read about all over the place. I have alot of friends that own Mini's and 2 of them already sold theirs to get PMRs. Almost all of the rest are on the verge of selling their gun. A few guys I know don't have any problems, but they're the minority.

Read up on the Mini and you will see how much it chops. Out of the 50+ Minis that I've seen, only 7 or 8 didn't chop. They're also a pain in the *** when it comes to maintenance. Versus the EOS, I really couldn't say which would be better for you, because it's for you. You need to go and hold and shoot them both, then decide. However I definately suggest you do not get a Mini, but that's my opinion based on my experiences. You'd be much better off with a different gun, and that doesn't mean you have to get an EOS.

Where are you getting your info from? First of all, most local shops are willing to bargain on pricing to get your business. I got my EOS for $350, and a few friends got their Minis for $325. And if you go on eBay, the EOS is selling for $390 with free shipping. The Mini is selling for 320-340. Plus, most online and eBay sellers won't charge tax.

Ozean: Also wanted to mention that it's good to support your local shop. I get lifetime support from my local shop since I bought my EOS there. Plus, I get discounts on paint and other stuff. Talk to a guy at your local shop and see if he's willing to work out some kind of discount on whatever marker you end up buying.
