I only have 187$

I dont exactly know which gun to get.
I was looking at an Ion or a Vibe.

If i got the vibe i could get a C02 Tank and if i got the ion then i would not have enough for anything yet and i would have to borrow for a while and ill probably only be able to borrow a grav hopper from someone.

Is there anything better to do?
What would you do?

Oh ya this will be my first gun.

Nope, not really.

The vibe sucks. Save your pennies and get an Ion and a steely tank used. You'll save alot since you'll just upgrade later. thumup:


really, your marker needs to rip


the vibe sucks? it comes from the same company of ion

Kid, I've played more speedball this year than you probably have in your life. Im playing d2 in Omaha and im ripping people with a shelled Tippmann. Backplayers need some speed, yeah. But no ammount of bps will make you a better player.

The vibe sucks. I manage the paintball section at Scheels Omaha, and it sucks. They come back all the time broken, and theres not much you can do to fix them. The ion is a far better gun. Yeah its made by the same company, I know. Also made by SP? The shocker. The shocker is a nice marker, dossent make the vibe any better.

I sat in the SP tent all this weekend at the living legends event and watched them fix Vibes the entire time. After seeing that I'm pretty sure I wont' ever recommend one, not ever

If you only have $187 for a gun, how do you plan on paying for admission, paint, and air?

Most expenses in paintball come from everything other than your marker.
