Paintball

Who makes a decent NEW mechanical marker in the $100-150 range? I'm not into hardcore playing, just want to drop some dead presidents and have something handy for when assholes piss me off. TIA.

P.S. I know this is not a "real" gun but who cares? At least it's the right forum...

If you're willing to spend another $50-100 you can get a used Smart Parts Ion. I'd say that's THE best entry level to entry level tournament marker you'll find.

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

Not worried about money. I just know I don't need one that's electronic and too involved. Also, don't want used.

If you're not wanting to spend more than $150 then you'll be limited to finding a gun at a place like Walmart or Dicks. Stick with either a Tippman or a Spyder because those will the the most reputable brands at that price. Just don't expect to get much at that price though.

That's the kind of info I'm looking for. Makers/models, etc...Thanks. I was looking on the Dick's website, and some of the Tippman's look pretty decent.
