Great. Leave it alone unless you feel like you have a problem. Or pick up a pump

Maybe a barrel kit in case you are using different types of paint?

It's the player not the gun.

True. But it sure is fun to collect new toys.

Of course, but honestly what this guy has for his level is more than enough. Not to make assumptions, but I am deducing that he is a new player based on the April 2013 join date. An empire axe, compressed air, and rotor is more than enough to get started with speedball. Perfectly fine equipment.

If anything because you didn't mention it. Invest in a harness and real paintball clothing (Pants, pads, jersey). Even so, the jersey is still kind of optional if running on a budget.

I'm assuming you already have a mask

Very true. Knee pads were my best investment so far!

I see it is a Mini now, my mistake. Still more than enough though. The only complaint about those guns are usually from big guys whose hands are too big for it.

I don't mind the mini's size, just don't like the fore grip personally

if you really wanna upgrade, just save up like 220-230 for the empire axe/mini redline board/foregrip- it will feel better and change modes easyier. and possably get the Tech T Mr.T delrin bolt- it will help with better shooting with brittle paint... and you will have the shootin ability and feel of the axe but the smallness nd weight of the mini.... so just keep puttin some money into it and it wont let u down...

The mini is perfectly fine with the right upgrades. My mini has a freak barrel kit, virtue eyes, violent trigger, on/off asa, boss xsv bolt with short spring, ape rampage board, dye rotor and a 68/45 ninja tank. My whole setup was still cheaper than my ego11 and shot way quieter and smoother than the ego. I was disappointed with the ego11 so much that I traded it for an axe plus cash and the axe itself is a better gun that the ego. While I think the ego11 is a beautiful looking gun, it certainly didn't seem like it was worth the price in my opinion. I'd say stick with the mini and slowly upgrade it. You'd be surprised how smooth it can shoot if you mess with it long enough. Although I'm not a pro baller, I feel much better losing a game carrying a mini than holding an ego11....and it feels that much better holding the mini and winning a game haha

Don't listen to him, you went with the mini, I'm assuming your a smaller person. Some smaller people prefer a smaller tank it has more maneuverability

Its a nice setup all you need really if your not playing big tournaments. I think the mid-range guns like the mini, etek, axe ect are all you need if your not playing for high stakes. Your not going to see much improvement in your play if you had one of the high end guns instead. I agree on maybe getting a barrel kit but its not necessary.

If you like it 10/10. Don't spend money to get the newest gear, all that's a very small part of your game. Just get out there and play. That's what will make you the best, not some fancy 1,000 plus dollar gun. (Although they are quite nice)
