Just because it's the most expensive doesn't mean you have to have it! You can have it and if it's the best then you probably will. You have to work your way up. Just kicking into paintball with a Bob Long Ripper Victory isn't the best of ideas.

This is what I've been trying to tell people for years! I've been in paintball going on seven years, and I still have the marker I started with, a Viewloader Triton II. I learned on that thing, and that's how I'm fantastic at troubleshooting and fixing blowback markers, I learned its problems and how to make it more consistent and host of other things that helped me tremendously. I've always been a woodsballer, and so I've always shied away from the $800 tourney guns that most newbies these days sport, but I've started to see the light on these markers. The fastest marker I own is an AutoCocker, and that'll do 10-12bps on a VERY good day. Most modern markers will do that all day, every day. This builds a reliance on firepower that isn't good for newbies just starting out. I'd rather see them start out with a mechanical blowback at 5bps and get better markers as they themselves get better. Starting with a G6R or an Ego makes you rely on the firepower of the marker instead of using movement and accuracy to get better.
I've been in 7 years and I've decided to go with higher-end markers. I'm working on trading for something like a G6R, an older Ego, or something from Empire. This is working my way up, though, I've been playing two years with the Triton, a couple years with a 2k0 AutoCocker, and just this year I've gotten an A5 and a 2k4 Superstock AutoCocker, which is a step up from that old Triton. Anyways, now that I've megarevived the thread, I'll be quiet now.

On a side note, what the heck is a Spyder Aggressor AutoCocker?

PMR was my first gun. Lower end setup is smarter for beginners. Stuff wont have lost 25-50% of its value after a year or two
