Equipment recommendation for someone coming back after 10 years

Hey everyone,

Like the title says, I a have been out of the sport for about 10 years. When I started I didn't have the time(to many jobs) or money(high school) to really enjoy the sport. Now I have money and quite a bit of free time and I was looking for a hobby to get behind and after thinking quite a bit, I think paintball fits the bill. So assuming I have a 68/4500 tank and a good thermal mask, what marker should I be looking at in 200-400 range. New or used, it does not really matter to me. Things that I am looking for in a marker are:

1. Reliability
2. Parts availability
3. Ease of Maintenance
4. Resale Value
5. Darker color(black, blue, green, camo)
6. Versatility

Please state the marker you would choose and why and if you have a recommendation slightly above or below said price I want to hear. Thanks in advance for all of your help and I look forward to getting involved in the paintball community.

I like a mini or if you want to spend more, get an axe. They are stupid easy to modify. The modifications are not needed. Plus the manufacturer Kee is the best customer service.

It's like one big Special Ed. field trip to the shooty paints field.
