On the topic of paint prices, if your field offers first strikes, you may want to at least try/barrow a first strike capable mag fed. Only radical new thing to come along in the last 6-7 years. Well, unless you think a tournoment marker that can be abused like a 98 is something revolutionary. Gtek can be lubricated with peanut butter and still work, provided that's it's extra creamy peanut butter. Just need a mechanical or pump mode for those times you forget batteries, or are caught in an EMP. Folks don't think being able to play in the rain with an electro is a big deal anymore.
But you still see plenty of phantoms, autocockers, and the like in recreational play. If you feel like playing with gear as old or older then most renters is still not enough of a challenge, you have the goblin double deuce and airowgun.
