Getting pissed off

Here's the deal..

My friend is a complete ****in' noob to paintball. I'm stuck helping him what to get cuz he's getting $1600 for his birthday. He doesn't want to blow it all, so this is what i've got him getting:

Ion
45/45 PMI Tank
PROfilers
Halo b or Revvy

Now, he keeps sending me links to useless crap he says he needs. I keep telling him to get his gun, mask, tank, and hopper first before he buys anything else.

Can you guys help me out here and suggest what he should do? And make it easier for me to do this ****. He just started talking about woodsball, and it's making me pissed off.

Thanks.

Why don't you guide him to a proshop and they can talk to him and explain to him all the guns and gear, and what each and every thing does.

I know people are going to say "He needs to start with a low end so he can learn the basics and whatnot and move up." I strongly disagree with that for many reasons, but am to tired to type it all out right now.

Personally I'd suggest an ETek, 68/45 Crossfire HP, Halo B, Empire B, or Vlocity, and a mask that he thinks is comfortable.

You must have missed the part where he doesn't want to blow all of it.

what sort of "useless" stuff is he wanting? it would be a good idea for him too get a pack, gloves (if he wants them), squeegee, gear bag, and pants and jersey (again, if he wants them)

We can get all this stuff at Air Assault, just he wants to get this shocktech barrel bore thingy for his ion, which is extremely pointless.

I'm almost getting ready to tell him i'm not gonna play paintball with him because he's like a ****ing girl to shop for.

ETEK-$749 (can find cheaper)
Used Crossfire 68/45- $110-135
Used Halo B/Empire/Vlocity- $70-110
Mask (used or not, doesn't matter)- $40-75

Total- Ranging from $974-$1,069. Out of $1,600 that isn't blowing all of it. To save even more money get a used 05 ego thats even cheaper (around $600-700).

He's also cheap. He doesn't want a gun over 300 bucks.

Why? Why would you care what he puts on his gun. Let him do what he wants with his money. You are the one that sounds like a ****ing girl. Why wouldnt you play with him because he wants a certain up?

I've known his for 9 years, he only used to play woodsball, he wants to buy a ****ing spyder, he thinks he needs all this extra stuff when he doesn't.

Plus i'm starting a team and he wants to be on it, but he hasn't played paintball for about 2 years.

tell him when he start knowing wut the game is about and how to paly ti then he can upgrade his gun..upgrades r only if somehting is holding u back in your game...then u buy somthin that is a little bit more forgiving and will let u do more, or help u out.
