*I Appologize If this is the wrong thread*

Hey all. I am thinking buying a gun, first one i've owned in about 4 years. I stopped playing after high school but want to get back into it. Last gun i had was a '98 Custom (like the rest of the world) but now i have a decent job and thus, want a decent gun.

I am thinking of buying a Invert Mini Empire 2009; just looking for anyone who have used it in tourny play, woodsball, speed/hyper ball basically anyone who uses it in game (not just shooting targets etc.).

For accessories on it, i am wanting to go the Nitro Route with it. Get a tank i put on a belt on the small of back, get 4 guppy holders (2 on each side of the tank), get one of those hoppers with a electronic feeder (the one with the blades inside the hopper so balls get to the chamber appropriatly. I also am looking to get a 14" Whisper Barrel with cocker threads for it.

My biggest problem is finding a place online to get all of this. I build computers and pick parts individually. I mainly use NewEgg.com for this purpose, is there a well reccomended online store for paintball equipment?

If anyone could suggest solid companies for everything i'd appreciate it. Lookin' forward to getting back into the game.

actionvillage.com and pbwarehouse.net are two sites I use often.

The mini is a nice gun, but I've always found it be be shorter then I would like causing things to feel cramped when I play. Also the gun likes to bounce when it fires.

The bounce can be fixed by increasing the magnetic return strength (lots of practice, lots of people I know have Minis, including my nephew). I loved the feel of my Mini, but I have very small, almost girlish hands. So that's something to think about, larger hands generally are VERY uncomfortable on Mini's, and even "normal" sized hands often don't find them the most comfortable.
