Paintball Guns Buying Guide
Paintball revolutionized war games and brought it to the masses. Since the 80s, paintball guns , also known as markers, have evolved in design to mimic the speed and capabilities of standard assault weapons.
Things to consider
- Your Budget: If you're just starting out, you may want to reserve some funds for extra ammo instead of splurging on the high-powered M16. Your high-powered guns often shoot more rounds per second, and thus will inevitably cost you more on ammunition.
- CO2 Tank vs CO2 Cartridge : The tank provides more CO2 than an individual cartridge, but once you run out, your marker becomes useless.
- Length of the Barrel: A longer barrel makes for more accurate shooting, but it can be more awkward to carry
- Ask Around: At a paintball club, ask the experts their opinion on the pros and cons of various guns they've tried. Those with more experience can help you around obstacles you haven't necessarily encountered yet.
