like most of these guys have said it comes down to preference, i think starting with semi seems to have an easier learnig curve as to moving from pump to semi if you ever want to make that jump

I think that this is the best advice that you have received. You can convert it back to semi if you find it necessary, and you will have a great pump to play with.

IMO it's much easier to go pump to semi than semi to pump. That's kind of the point.

Unfortunately, most people confuse an ability to shoot lots of paint with ease of use.

One of the key reasons I suggest starting with a pump is that many of the players in their earliest stages are still using slower guns. Also, playing limited paint can only allow a person to play more often, financially. Last, lower volume of shots increases the chances of eliminated players returning.

Pump is where I started. I moved on to some other things just to try them out, but came back to pump because I loved it so much!

It's a great idea to start using a pump as early as possible in your paintball career. I see so many people these days who start with semis and/or electros and it really prevents them from learning the fundamentals of the game.

With a pump you're forced to make intelligent moves on the field and tighten up your shooting skills -- otherwise you won't have much fun. Once you figure it out, you'll see that you really aren't at much of a disadvantage. And if you pick up a semi, you'll be able to annihilate whole teams with ease...
