Talking Hey! Which gun should my friend get?

So, my friends 14th birthday is in about 20 days, and he really wants to get into paintball (I recently squeezed by wallet to grab a Spyder Victor). He's got a bit more money than I do, (Enough for a Fenix or Rail, but not a Luxe) and he really wants to akimbo TPXs. I tried to convince him that he should stick to a basic gun first, you know, to train away from tunnel vision and learn the game more before he throws himself headfirst into a Rail thinking that he can afford to spray paint and he'll hit everything. Granted he's a good shot, but kind of wimpy. What should I tell him?

Cheap is the way to go. Paintball may not be his thing. A spyder would be a great choice.

He's played twice before, and he loves the sport. He decided to go with a single TiPX and a T98 Custom. I hope he has the skill to avoid getting lit up with that scrawny TiPX... He thinks he's a god or something. Sigh...

I would've recommended an entry level electro to be honest... especially when an Ion can be had for 75$...
I feel like hes going to regret that decision he made.

But hey, whatever gets him out on the field.

Forget the rail or smart parts. Go with a mini. Light weight. It will keepip with the high end electros. And if he decides that the sport is not for him......its pretty easy to get rid of.

Umm... I can understand suggesting another gun.... but to say "forget"... is a little retarded. the rail and Ion does and is everything you just mentioned about the mini... Mini's ergo isnt for everyone either.

He already made his decision and bought a gun anyway.

Agreed Ions are pretty good markers for beginners
