It all depends on if are a casual player or are you going to become a diehard player? Most paintball fields will rent you the equipment that you would need to play. I would recommend that you do that first to see what you can expect to purchase, if you want to be a paintball player. You can go to your nearest Wal-Mart store here in the USA and pick up a reasonable Marker term used for paintball guns that would meet most of your needs. You can also order on line. Talk to some of the players at the field most will freely give you what they feel is needed and why.
