That is a very bad deal. I do not mean to sound unkind about it, but $100 is about 5x the amount of what you can get them new for. It depends on how often you get punched by older brothers or do rough things. As a child, my neighbors and older brother beat on me a lot because I was much younger then they were. I was brought up to be pretty strong so when I started playing it did not hurt. My cousin on the other hand was 15 when he played for the first time. He was like tearing because it hurt. I do not want to discourage you, though. I bet you will be fine, just don't think about it.

Also, just remember, if indeed it is painfull, the pain will pass in 10 seconds MAXIMUM! Just like getting a friendly punch by a friend.

If you are preoccupied with getting hit and waiting to feel the ‘pain’ then yea It might hurt a little more. The only time that it really has hurt me to far was getting hit in the hand with no gloves on.

I would recommend that you get a Spyder or Tippman for a first gun. You have to realize something. Guns do break down and you will need to get replacement parts.Just about every Paintball Store carries parts for Spyders and Tippmans. Do some research beforew you buy your first gun. A good used gun is a good idea. This way you can get into the sport at a lowere price and you can see if you like it.

Also, protect your damn head. I'll be the first AND the last person to tell you that head shots do hurt if they are in the right spot. Wear a beanie or a hat or something.

if i were you i would get the talon the pumping of the gun increases the exercise you will get. whatever you do don't get a matrix or a halo or an RT.

Somehow the question and sig don't seem to match

Yeah, that sig is totally inappropriate. I have seen numerous amounts of fights because of overshooting while bunkering and just regular overshooting.

If you mean it in a kidding manner, at least use the please. I personally don't mind it, but you never know who takes these sigs seriously.
