Thumbs up Looking where to start my research

Hey guys, I am looking for suggestions on where to begin looking for a good woodsball gun. I want something that will be good to start with that won't be overly expensive.

I am also looking for something that I won't out perform too quickly.

I have only played paintball a few times so am going to go and rent a play a few times but I just want to know where to start researching because I will buy marker in the next few months

The two best places to start you research are at your local field and your local proshop.

Please don't make threads asking "what gun should I buy?" We call these "vs." threads because generally people ask about one gun vs another one. Everyone has their own personal preference and often these threads turn into flame wars because people take these kinds of decisions very seriously. Start by checking out the reviews on the guns you are interested in that are within your price range.

If there are no reviews out yet because the item has not been released or has not caught on, give it time. Once other users have them in their hands, we'll start getting feedback here on the site. If you want to be the first person to own one, then you are taking a risk no matter what it is. Badgering the manufacturer is not allowed and it won't give you the unbiased answers you crave anyway. They are after all trying to get you to buy something.

If you still want people's opinions about how one marker stacks up against another, post in the Endall Best Marker Sticky and ask.

However, the best way to choose your next gun is to try it out. Paintball guns are totally personal preference. Shoot everything you are considering, buy what you like the most. If no one local has what you want, then there's a good chance no one local can fix it if something goes wrong.
