If your just getting into paintball Tippman 98s are nice little markers, it's what I play with

Get a Bob Long Intimidator for the pwnage. Seriously, I have a Spyder Flash from my days of paintball, and it has held up great.

It depends, if you are going to be playing speedball, don't get an ion. They are not reliable. Save up and get a PMR (Proto Rail). They are the best money can buy.

If you are gonna be playing woodsball, get eith a 98 Custom, or an A5.

The good thing about Tippmanns is that you can use CO2, and you don't have to buy a $100+ HPA tank.

I would go for the A5.
a Spyder MR-1 is good for woodsball, pretty accurate, good stability with the stock, and they look like an assult rifle!

For Christ sake she probably couldn't get to the center of a Tootsie Pop let alone suck your **** properly. Just get someone your own age you tosser.
thx every 1...what kind of barrels for long /med range and accuracy to fit on the tippman 98?....mainly for woodsball?and what other upgrades are good?
best barrell for the tippmann is the flatline barrel.

if your talking about high end markers, as the guy above said, Angels are really nice.

If you want to get really technical about it..

1. Grab sticks.
2. Bang sticks on drums.

^how to play drums.

I really like the 98s and the A5s go for one of those

Also TS, I agree with TheHobbes about visiting http://www.pbnation.com/. The folks there could probably help you alot more in terms of getting started, also I think folks who play Paint ball regularly prefer the term "Marker" instead of gun
