Unhappy tourney entry guns?

Yes i know the sticky says no posts about this but out of curiosity, what are the cheapest tourney guns u can get(im assuming an ion is one so besides that) The only restriction i can think of is ROF adjustable... Would spyders be considered tournament approved per say? haha only reason im asking this is i have a few friends who want to play but own either A tippman or dont have guns and want to buy a spyder....

If you play a non PSP/NPPL event, like a local field's Young Guns or summertime event, then perhaps. Cousin's noob team won an event with all spyders back in like 05/07. I was stunned. I thought they were gonna get mowed down.

If it can get 3-5 pods per fill, and can ramp 12.5 or 15bps then I don't see why it couldn't compete. Weight and size can be overcome with training and drop forwards.

I'm very tempted to mod an old impulse with a shocker board so I can rock one in a tourney series. The old impulse is by no means a tourney gun these days, but its so consistent and reliable that if I could get fire modes on it I'd definitely shoot it and rock people with it.

Used Dangerous Power G3's, Proto SLGs, and Invert Minis are great guns for the money. And if you can splurge enough, Empire AXE is one hell of a gun for 450.

Honestly, you can get a nice Shocker for EXTREMELY cheap nowadays and they shoot just like modern day guns with the right parts.
