I know that all of you are probably sick of hearing some new dude get on here and ask what gun to buy but I have been reading all over the noob forum and I can't make up my mind based on those things so here it goes. Im stationed down in Guantanamo Bay and we play pretty much every week down here. We play woods ball but its not a typical woods course its pretty open. I am looking to spend around 200-250 dollars, and the only gun ive thought about spending more for was an Invert Mini which I can get down here for like 315? I shot that and it was real nice. I know I can go with a Tippman seeing its woods ball but I'm very interested in the speedball guns. However I know im boot to all this and I'm also worried about the maintenance involved and not knowing too much about the gun. What gun would you guys suggest?? I already have a viewloader electronic hopper so I'm just looking for a gun not really a package deal. Thanks a ton!!

Do you have access to HPA or just Co2 or both?

Well, you could get a certain Dangerous Power G3 Special Edition, that someone may or may not be selling on Ebay right now for $275 starting bid, that comes with an Evil Pipe kit...

But seriously, if you like the Mini, I'd say go for that or the G3/G4. All of them are very light guns, and the G3 is almost zero maintenance (6 orings total). If you are playing speed ball, I'd have to say the following things are most important:
Mask
Marker
Barrel
Tank
Hopper
Pods/pack

In order. If you decide to skimp on anything, make sure it's not the mask ;P Not only is it an important piece of safety equipment, it is also critical to playing. If you have a mask fog up on you, doesn't matter if you are making a great move on the other team's last guy, or the last one on your team trying to hold your position, a fogged mask will ruin your day.

mini over g3/g4 hands down, quieter, smoother, better efficiency no quality control issues from the factory

if you can get HPA fills i think the mini would be a decent choice, its pretty idiot proof in its design and the manual has a pretty decent diagnostics page, so if anything is leaking or something is wrong you can take a look at that and hopefully figure it out. and even if you cant from that you can come here! there are people here who know a lot about the mini (including myself) who could really help you out

like hurdle said, get a nice mask, one with a thermal lens so it wont fog on you

The big difference between woodsball markers and speedball markers is that speedball markers are just better. You can use any light marker to play woodsball, it's real hard taking a tippmann onto a speedball field. The Invert Mini is a good choice. Since getting my mini I've not even bothered touching my A5.
