paintballing

So my friend and I finally went paintballing the other day, and I gotta say. It's something I think I'm willing to cough up some money for a starter's kit, so I don't have to use the off centered guns that the paintball place has for rent.

Anyways I'm just wondering if the starter kit from walmart is one worth buying or should I consider another one I found on ebay?

walmart

ebay

no.. if u wanna buy paintball gear go to a offical paintball gear reseller store.. DO not buy that kit from walmart, u will regret it when u take it onto the field.. and ebay sellers tend to sell broken junk or junk that isnt worth that price (american to Canadian dollar) + shipping

www.paintballgear.ca
www.buypbl-paintball.com
www.badlandspaintball.com

the ion is a wonderful gun but the price maybe tooooo much for a beginner that wanna get the feel of the game..

i would recommend a tippman x7, or A4 or A5, 98 and 98 custom.. or you could get a kingman VS series, MR series.

http://www.paintballgear.ca/product/...Path=157_31_38

buy this now u get a free co2 bottle. pilot is not a bad gun, it already has a ACS (anti chop bolt) and its electronic trigger. for this price its totally worth it... all u need is a mask and a hopper and ur in the game.

I was at the paintball store in richmond at aberdeen centre yesterday. At first the guy told me about the starter package they had for sale. It was the Spyder VS1 starter package with the 12 oz co2 tank, mask and standard loader. The package was about $200 before tax

I was tempted to get that package, but then the guy tried to sell me one of the BT-4 guns freak. He wanted to sell me either the BT-4 Banshee or Iron Horse with silencer, scope and lazer for $500 hahaha.

i just bought a vs3 marker, all the VS series marker are great for beginners..... vs1 starter package for 200$ before taxes is pretty decent since the gun itself its about 170$ and a co2 tank costs about 20-30$ and a mask 40-60$ so ur actually saving alot buying that package than buying seperately.

accurate hahaha. I dunno I was reading how there is only so much any good gun will do. But if you can't hit a broad side of a barn. No matter how good the acc on the gun, u still might sux hahaha

btw of all the local paintball fields in vancouver, which one you guys best recommend? I've been looking at the most popular one Tsawwassen, but I have no idea wut guns they use and I heard they don't shoot straight at all.

Ambush uses tippmann 98s

Wut guns do Northshore uses?

Anyways, I'm planning to setting up a group event with my friends. so which place would you guys recommend?

Tsawwassen is the best field imo, very professionaly run, very fun to play at, and i really like the setup they have there

for gun owners, the best field is Tactical, which is only open on saturdays, and for gun owners only, it's also in Tsawwassen

ah. Ok, so one last question I got. So on all the paintball sites, they state that you cant use outside paintballs in their field. Why is this and what happens if you and your friends bring some in anyways?

thats how they make profit. speedball is bring your own paint at ambush

a case of rec(woodsball shit paint) 120

a good case of marbillizer 60-70 (which i love to death and is perfect for its price, never broke or had jams in my halo wit this paint) i recommnd this to anyone especially speedball players who dont wanna spend too much (use a .692 bore its a perfect match)

note-if you wanna go expensive chronic,evil and gold xball and dxs are pretty good

*******

my ion's my backup now :P

i love using the ego for woodsball, mainly because when i'm stuck in a bad position or i know i can assault and use my position as an advantage, there's nothin like lighting up a group of 4+ guys behind a tree/bunker with 20bps
