I think in my opinion you shouldnt start out with the best gun that is out in paintball.
I think you should start with an average semi automatic that isnt to complacated in taking apart your gun or putting back to togther.
Also you shouldnt grade the guns on the price of it because to me that means nothing about the gun.
From my list i think these are the best start out guns as a newbie.. Not to cheap or expensive and the top of the list for how cheap they are!
1. Model 98
4. Rebel Deluxe
5. Brass Eagle Advenger
7. The stingRay
8. KingMan Agresser
9. Brass Eagle Raptor
10. Avolan Gt Commando 2
Well there are my top ten guns to get if your a newbie! and want a good average gun....
plz list your own if you dissagree with my opinion.
