play pump

you can get a pump trilly for under $100 and youll hardly ever shoot over a bag when pumping.

all these guys saying play pump... how is he supposed to get the gun to play. first question for spaz... is there a field nearby? if so, hang out alot and become friends with the employees and owner. Offer to ref for free, yeah that sounds like it sucks but trust me. after some time, ask if you can work for store credit or even free entry. That's what i did to get started and i now work there as an employee gettin paid. sometime's you gotta work your way up. hope this helped

Yeah, play pump for now, when you have the cash to get a mech/electro, you'll be a better player anyway. It builds fundamental skills to play well.

Best thing is to get a job. Lawn Mowing/yard maintance for the neighbors, Dog walking, extra chores etc. Also reffing at your local field is good as well. You are not only earning to play but you will be able to look at how other players play you and will be able to learn alot.

people toss coins all over. trust me, it helps to save change. over a month, i saved $37. sounds stupid. i know, but hey, money is money.

that or just simply cut down on unnecessary spending.

Sorry but you can't always get what you want. You have to save up if you want the tippy top gear, if not play pump, if you can't get that then, like i said, save up.

just a question what gun do you have if any..and what about gear also cause gear is first then a gun..
1st get a good mask
2nd hopper co2/hpa tank
3rd gun
you can find good deals in the b/s/t fourms on all this gear
