Getting started in Paintball

Paintball is growing by leaps and bounds. It is a great form of exercise that can be loads of fun and involves endurance, tactical strategy, shooting accuracy, and many other skills but can be played by contestants of all skill levels. It can become an expensive hobby but it does not cost much money to get started if you know what you need and where to get it.

First, I do recommend borrowing a gun or renting one before you invest any money. When you do get ready to purchase all you will need is the gun, or marker as it can be called, a mask, and the paintballs. The gun should also have the hopper to hold the paintballs and a CO2 tank or other kind of pressurized air to propel them. You should also get a barrel cleaner and some lubricant to maintain the weapon. Most guns are very easy to take apart and clean. They can usually be taken apart with an allen key and then should be cleaned and oiled. The mask you get depends on you but only needs to cover the whole face. There are some masks that are made for paintball but any thing you have that does the job will suffice to get started. Just make sure you don’t forget the paintballs.

I recommend going with a new gun when you decide to purchase becuase they will come with a manual to break down the gun and usually the key as well which makes things a lot easier. Purchasing a name brand is also the best option as to make sure you are getting something that will last and not give you as many problems. The best option in my view is to go with the Tippman 98 because of it’s price, durabilty, and versatility. You can get one of these in a package that includes everything you need except paintballs for about $150. This gun will last and is easy to operate. It also has numerous kits you can buy to upgrade it to anything from a sniper gun to an AK47 which helps you not get bored with it and can get basically a different gun for very little money. Simply buying a scope and a barrel can also change your weapon for the better for even less.

There are many other things you can get from a full camouflage suit to vests that will carry a backup pistol. All of this means that you can get into a sport that is fun, helps keep you in shape, and requires many different skills to become very good. You will at least be able to enjoy the outdoors, usually, and have the camaraderie of others.
