Pump for beginner?

Hi, I've been playin pump for a while now and my friend is a beginner in the sport but I've kind of influenced him to play pump because I'm always talking about it. He kind of wants to buy a phantom now but he's worried about getting owned on the field. He's been using my back up spyder but I recently sold it so he doesn't have a gun to play with now. Anyway, do you guys think he should buy a phantom or buy a semi auto and get a little better. Thanks for the help.

I duno i say buy a spyder for beginners, even tho there not reliable at all, or get a tippman 98 cuz they can take a beating and there easy to fix. I guess if they started out with a pump they would be ok, its just he conversion is a little trickey.

Id get a pump to start out but tell him to get a cheaper one in case he dosnt like it, like a pgp(very good for beginners). If he wants a semi tell him to get a 98c mines served me well for 3 years.

Well does'nt matter He'll get owned anyway since he's new. Well I would say go pump first and learn the basics. With some TRAINING (not just running out on the field and play) the learning curve is much steeper when playing with a pump.

beginner Gun

Hi , i think if you are a beginner , why buy an expensive Gun. Buy a less expensive Gun , and if you have Fun with it than buy a good Barrel. Together you are better than an Expensive Gun and the price is Equal.
Like you bye for example a Sterling Bronze after you think its Fun buy a Freak Barrel for it. This two Parts together are the same in Price like a Phantom with Standard Barrel
