Aright, I just found out of a friend that plays.

So, he said 'Yeah, get a gun and we will go play'. So thats what im going to do.

I have the money as of now to get a better gun then all of them, but I dont want too.

However, it seems damn near everyone has the 98 Custom. I really like that gun too, shot it, and love it.

However, everyone (almost literally) that paintballs there has that gun. (sorry dev) So, whats another rugged gun like that? Thats not to spendly, I dont want to spend more then $300 for the whole shabang.

Ideas?

Edit-
Sticking this link here for safe keeping, I dont want to loose it in the depths of ebay. And my bookmarks are too cluddered.

Okay, well then ill get a gun that sucks.

I cant go out on my first day and have the most badass stuff on the field.

Im looking at Tippman A5s on eBay. There are some insane deals. And its made by the same people, so that saves me from any embarassment. And its used, not brand new.

Yeah, I really like the AFs, they're bad ass, the best thing about Tippmans is that they're so upgradable.

I have a 20 oz, CO2 Tank i'll sell ya :D

Go with a Tippmann, Spyder, or Piranha. You could go more and get a Smart Parts Ion, but it will require more care. For a first gun I would go with one of the first 3 I mentioned. The 98 is a tank, that's why alot of them are rentals.
