Getting back into paintball

Hey Everyone,
So I've been out of paintball for a while. My son has recently taken an interest so I picked up a spyder electronic gun for him. I'm looking to get back into it with him and looking for suggestions on guns. For reference my last gun in 2003 was a 2k2 Viking with WAS board and some other mods. I'm not looking to spend that much on a gun again. I'm thinking $300 for a gun and N2 system. Any thoughts on options? I was looking at a SP Ion, or maybe a Timmy but don't want to be stuck looking for upgrades if I want them. I was thinking of a Dye barrel and maybe upgraded bolt and that's about it. Just looking to play rec ball with my son and want it to be reliable and shoot well.

Thoughts?

I've still got my Dye mask that is in great shape. I'll look at the Mini. Thanks.

Pick up a Timmy and you won't be disappointed. There are some great deals here on PBN with upgrades as well as eBay.

The Timmy is always a valid choice. Solid guns then, still solid today. If you like the looks of the Mini, get around one and put your hands on it. I like the look myself, but find the gun itself is too small for me.
