Judging by your hand your a female ? (Long thin fingers and manicured nails
How often do you play ? Do you play at the same field all the time ? Do you use the same paint all the time (field paint) ?
I agree with Blackrain, I would get your safety gear first, then a decent harness/vest to carry your paint in. NXE makes a great inexpensive harness.
NXE Black Harness
NXE Digital camo Harness
As for masks, I recommend a JT Pro shield/Pro flex/Flex 8/full coverage;

As far as upgrades for your SP-1
You can go with Blackrains suggestion for a loader;
Tippmann SSL 200
- my best friend uses this loader and loves it
or the one I prefer is an older ViewLoader Revolution XBoard -:
I have the stock G-1 board in my SP-1 and it only shoots 11 bps max, so this is a cheaper alternative and feeds 12-13 bps, more then enough to keep up with your paint needs.
I also recommend a hpa Tank, even though it will run fine on c02, in those cold Canadian winters HPA is far superior to c02.
As for a barrel, I recommend the Freak Jr kit - 99.95 comes with 3 inserts, and if you call GoG Paintball, they will actually sell you a Freak Jr kit with your choice of insert sizes. Make sure you get Ion/Impulse threads !!!
Also, I dont recommend having your stock barrel freaked, this limits you on options down the road. Say you want an APEX barrel or a longer barrel, the Freak Jr allows you to just buy a tip vs buying an entire barrel thus saving you money down the road.

- buy it from GoG paintball _ suggest calling them first.
If you just want a single bore barrel I recommend a CP Classic or Tactical, .685 bore, 14" length.
