I am a Newbie, Please help.

Hey guys, I am new to paintball (sorta) and am getting back into the swing of things. I am hoping to start going pro and all that fun stuff, but first, I must pick a gun. I will provide you guys with 5 links to 5 different guns. Please help me pick which is better. The reason I narrowed it down, is because I am on a low budget and want to save some extra money to buy upgrades / accesories. So, without any further introduction, here they are.

Gun 1: http://www.ultimatepaintball.com/p-2...set-black.aspx

Gun 2: REMOVED ~ APPARENTLY .50cal IS OUT OF THE QUESTION

Gun 3: http://www.ultimatepaintball.com/p-2...set-black.aspx

Gun 4: REMOVED ~ APPARENTLY .50cal IS OUT OF THE QUESTION

Gun 5: http://www.ultimatepaintball.com/p-4...-mega-set.aspx

Please help, thank you.

**BTW, Yes, I know there is already a Mega-Thread up on this, but I feel like my post won't get any attention because of how big of a thread it is, idk, just help**

My advice- don't get the premade packages, you can build your own, and chances are it will be MUCH better.

Looking at your listed ones, you're on a budget, and a pretty tight one. Here's my suggestion:

Azodin Kaos $90 (Or get a used Ion if you're into electros)
Vlocity - $30 or a Revvy $18 (Or you can get a used Vlocity for $15)
PMI Basic Tank $40
Vforce Vanatage Pro $30

^Great Starter Package right there.

Let me know if you have any questions!

P.S There are tons of good deals online for used markers, tanks, and hoppers

You aren't going to see a huge difference in quality between the two Spyders, I would go with one of them. They're good starter markers, and they'll treat you well as long as you take care of them. The advantage of the Tippmann 98 is that it's a bit more durable, and has more options for aesthetic customization, but that really isn't worth the extra $50 IMO considering that, performance wise, they're about the same.

thats a pretty good starting setup and if/when you upgrade to a different marker the Vlocity will be able to feed it and the tank can be used too

add paintballs and your good to start shooting face at your local field
