Need Some Help

Hey guys i posted this else where but wanted to get some opinions and maybe some references. I am form KC and just curious what the best store in the area would be? green dragon? jeagers pro shop?

also this is my original post and poll

Hey everybody just kind of been contemplating myself so i figured people with some knowledge would be the best to ask. So with christmas coming up i am looking to come out of the season with atleast the bare minimums, i have a mask picked out as well as a tank(except Whats the difference between the PSI of a tank 3000/4500, will either shoot on any gun?). Anyways i am conflicted by quite a few choices. I am really looking for something that i can play woodsball and speedball with but probably will be playing a little more speedball. anyways i just want something that is all around a durable/ good shooting gun that is user friendly for someone who has a good general knowledge of what they are doing. I know in this price range i will not be getting the perfect gun that will last me forever, I am a student so i just need it to get me by til i can afford to shoot a high end gun. Also i am interested in used guns but i only have 2 stores here in kansas city and they are kind of far away, just curious if this is a better route or if buying new is better. Finally i have one more question and that is, will any stores have really good deals for black friday? thanks in advanced to those who reply it is greatly appreciated.

Search the pbnation BST forum. I've never even heard of what's on the poll until you got to used lol.

Ego7's are legit and they'll work for both woods ball and speedball. You can get one for probably $300.

Dont listen to this guy. Go into Jegars and talk to Sam or Dave and tell them how much you are wanting to spend and Im sure they can hook you up with exactly what you need. Keep your money with a local store and not with some kid on the nation.

unfortunatley green dragon is out of business and he had the best selection IMO. look on craigslist for guns. i know a guy that has a pmr listed for like $150 on there. also i know 280 paintball has 48-3000 psi tanks for fairly cheap. if you like i can give you an email address to a guy that has a lot of stuff for sale.

If you're interested in a PMR8 I have one listed on craigslist. Search TOURNAMENT PAINTBALL GEAR, and send me an e-mail.

3000/4500 is just how much air in pressure that a tank can hold. they will work on any gun as long as you match up the correct amount of pressure coming out of the tank, high pressure (~800 psi output) and low pressure (~450 psi output). most guns will work with a high pressure output.

as for pro shops, like jeep said 280 paintball does not have a proshop. i have seen some pretty nice stuff for sale in their display case though. high performance in harrisonville also has new and used guns and gear for sale and can order items for you if you need them to. jaegers has a proshop and also the largest selection of items in house for sale, so if you like to hold a gun in your hand to see what it feels like then they may be your best bet. also, if you buy a gun from a local store chances are they will fix it for you if anything goes wrong.

that being said, you can always get a better used gun for the same price as a lesser new gun. the only problem is that is something goes wrong then it is entirely on you to fix it, or pay to fix it.

This. Head on into Jaegers sometime during operating hours and just talk with Sam and/or Dave. They're cool laid back guys that will chat with you and answer all your questions whether you're looking to buy something or if you're just trying to get more info on the sport.
