Not much has really changed. The guns from a few years ago are still around and just as good. Buy what you like

Since a marker is such a personal choice, the best way is to rent or borrow different markers and play with them. I find myself going back to mechanical autocockers and having more fun than the newer stuff.

I agree definitely see if you can borrow someone's gun for a game. Last year I got back into the sport and I went from using co2 spider back in 1997 to using an empire axe. I only just decided to join this forum cause I'm deployed and well....bored..but yes borrowing guns on the field is how I caught back up to the current state of the sport and found the gun i favor

Wanted to thank you for your duty!

Back to business. Depending on how much you want to spend will be a large deciding factor in your purchase. Use a lot, hold a lot, shoot a lot and ask a lot lol. Unless you go to a field with a bunch of stuck up f***ers, everyone (mostly) should have no problem showing off gear and letting you shoot a few rounds through them.

Like people have already said, not MUCH has changed.... but enough to make a difference. Now'a'days (just like in the past) most of your decisions will be based off of what you use and how you like the feel for it. Rarely do you find one High-end marker that is waaaaaay better than the rest of the market.

Hope this helps!

If you get a solid 06 or newer highend gun with a board that has nearly every mode (either stock or aftermarket) you will be good to go.

Honestly you can spend $200 and get a marker that will shoot just as fast as the most expensive markers on the market. That can be just as efficient, etc.

Heck you could get a techt bolt ion with a qev and virtue/tadao board that will shoot essentially as good as anything.
