Help Decide For My Back-Up Gun!!!

Need Advice!!! Plz give opinions on what new guns and used guns that would be a good idea that would be good for $500 and under..... My main gun right now is Ego11 if that matters..... If you list a gun and have reasons why then by all means list them!

I would get the Planet Eclipse Etha or Empire Axe. They are both reliable and under $500. I have looked around everywhere and from what I can find these are the best two guns for that price range.

There are going to be soooo many fantastic markers in that price range on the BST. Take a few days and look around.

A second Ego. That way, you don't have to worry about the feel changing from your primary to your backup. Plus, there will be some parts commonality, so you only have to have one parts kit. But the main thing is feel. If you're used to one gun's feel, and change over to something else only once in a while, it won't feel right, and you'll be uncomfortable with it on the field.

I like to have the best of both worlds.... so i'd say a DM. Use the DM if you know it wont be a long game of shooting, and then the Ego if you're gunna be sitting in the back shooting pod after pod. You can def get a DM10 for at or under 500
