waht are you looking for in a gun? no kick? smooth shooting? great efficiency? narrow it down to the specs you want and then look at guns that fill your requirements.

i got an ego 05 for a amazing deal shoot great and keeps up with every gun on the field, you have a mini there decent guns go practice at local fields play as a walk on, that's what i am doing now and play next year, make sure your other gear is upgraded mask, tank, hopper, playing gear(pants jersey) maybe a nice pod pack upgrade those before getting a new gun IMO

This is quickly going to become a vs. thread

Honestly you are fine with a mini. Make sure you have a good mask ( I can personally reccomend events, profilers, and proflexs) Get a good pod pack, just make sure its not too large ( example. if your playing front go for the 3+2 not the 4+5) Some nice knee pads and elbow pads are nice, but not really needed. I would upgrade the other gear before you get a new marker personally, unless you just hate the mini.

honestly, as far as guns go, you should be OK with a mini if you're comfortable with it and can play well. If you are in the market for a new gun that won't break the bank, look into gen3 intimidators, ie. Alias platforms (and all the PL's like RL, naughty dogs, ripper2's, etc) They are amazing shooting guns and can be found cheap.
It seems to me that people are making a big stink about gear here. Gear won't make a player, yeah, it'l make you look more "professional" but if you can play, I could care less about how you look, Once you make it onto a team, then you can worry about a jersey, pants, etc. I will say though, look into a set of pads (arm and knee), they help a LOT if you're diving or sliding.
Learn as much as you can, play walkon, hop into all the games you can, ask people questions, get pointers, if there's a clinic, go, etc. etc. That's what's going to really make you a better player, not a brand new ego or matrix
