Then you'll definitely be wanting an electro gun with firing modes. Those guns will be great, i've seen many people start with them with the intention of upgrading when they get more into it, all to realize that there was no need to. I'd highly recommend the PMR over the Ion just because it comes with a better feedneck and i like the trigger frame more. If you get an Ion, make sure its an XE, the regular ion has to be completely taken apart just to clean and lube the bolt.
Both these guns will work great for you as they are stock... but, if you do feel inclined to upgrade heres what i recommend:
Out of the box, the PMR is great and really doesnt need much, its smooth and relatively easy to maintain. If you get an 07/08, the first thing you should do is get a metal back cap. As for performance upgrades...the only thing i can see you may want to upgrade (and this is over time) is the trigger and a new barrel.
As for the Ion Xe, the worst thing is the feedneck, hands down. After that, the second worst thing is the trigger. Then i'd say barrel, and possibly an ASA
The PMR will have a nicer shot with less kick, to get the ion to feel like that you'd have to get a bolt upgrade.
