brother and his gun

my brother is getting a gun soon and he wants an A5 he is 14 but i dont think he shoulkd get one yet i am thinking a 98c what do you guys think?
Ghostslinger

is he paying for the gun? then let him get wat he wants if he is but an A-5 is good (e-grip, flatline, r/t, etc.)
idk too much about them tho but they sound nice enough
TriggerHappy1

Hmm, A-5s are very nice, but a bit more than a beginner gun. A little more care needed in them. But still its a great gun. Id do it.
g36 monkey

a-5 was my first gun and still is what i use...it is awesome and extremely reliable...i havetn had one break yet...i reccomend a new barrel and possibly a new trigger first....i got my bigshot and doubl trigger before i ever played with it because i was grounded. Laughing
P8ntBallKing10

really u guys think an A-5 over a 98c for a first gun?
g36 monkey

i love my a-5 and i dont think i can ever part w/ it...even if i dont use it i dont think id be able to sell it....its a great gun for anybody...granted i had been playing for a year when i got it...but still....
Ghostslinger

sure, and it is more customizable than the 98c (as much as that tears my heart). the only problem i have with it is that tends to be a target for hopper shots (like i always aim for the cyclone Very Happy)
P8ntBallKing10

alrite i will tell him to get the A-5 i dont have a problem with your answers ty
g36 monkey

ive never been hit in the hopper....only gun hits are on the barrel and my fingers on the trigger got hit....i pnly got hit in my hopper when using other guns (98c...proto.....shocker...dm4....procarbine....must i go on)
P8ntBallKing10

no it is ok u dont have to go on lol
g36 monkey

I feel like i made a poitive impact Thumbs up

Get him to get the A-5 and a new barrel. Everything else can come later when he wants to upgrade. The big thing is to get him playing so he doesn't want a "super sniper scope" or anything like that.

All the new guys want that (i never did....but i had read all these magazines and stuff before i started) and its funny to see how excited they get about the super sniper scopes. Laughing

I haven't gotten hit much in the hopper either. I have taken them to the bottom of the cyclone on the side of the marker. The hopper sits closer to the marker on the A-5 then most others. I get hits on my forearm more often.
g36 monkey

yea...and some guns have the hoppers up really high....i dont see it as so much of a target as everyone makes it out to be...it just has a mungo neck....doesnt seem so much bigger to me...i am gettin the r-5 though cuz i would rather have the smoke look...just my preference.
P8ntBallKing10

i gotta a new issue now he wants this gun looks like a 98c but has a butt and scope and a long barrel the decreption says it is used for snippering but is there snipping in paintball
Ghostslinger

wat magazine are u getting and tell him there isnt such a thing as sniping. tell him to talk to me on AIM and ill tell him about sharpshooting
P8ntBallKing10

alright i will tell him soon
abr5

nononoononono, don't have him get an a-5, tell him to get an ion!!!!!

for real, an A-5 was my first gun. it was pretty nice, and i liked it, but he will probably want something better after his first few times out (i always wanted to get something faster)
if i were him i would get the A-5, if he has alot 200 more than it would cost to get it. that way, he will have plenty of money to upgrade it with, or start up money to buy something a little more high end (NOT an ion)
but it all depends on what he wants to play. i love speedball, so i got a faster gun. if i liked woods more, i probably woulda kept my A-5, and tricked it out with a super sniepr scope Laughing
Ghostslinger

plus u dont have to get HPA if u get an a-5 (unlike if u got an ION)

Are you sayin hes a speedball or a woodsball gy?
P8ntBallKing10

abr5

either way, don't get an ion, or an SP68, or w/e it is called

get a tippy, most reliable in the world
g36 monkey

Yea...they are super duper reliable and super duper upgradeable and can be quite the beasty guns Rambo
abr5

super duper! :wee:

yea....
P8ntBallKing10

alright a tippmann works Laughing
GoTsKiLLz

God lol just get an A-5 thats it period! Smile

The big advantage of the A-5 over the 98C is that you dont need to buy a hopper with the A-5. Just screw in a tank and load it up w/paint and your good to go.

Players allways forget that you will need a good mask. Spend the money NOW on a good mask (I like my V-force Profiler). If ya cant see ya cant play. Then get a barrel (j-j Ceramic, All American or St!ffi nothing more that 14" and use a .689 bore (best bore for most paint)

*Off topic discussion.
If your getting hit in the gun and mask only I think your doing what your supposed to do by hiding your body and giving the enemy very little to shoot at IMO!! * Think about it.
P8ntBallKing10

OK A-5 it is Smile thank you all

I agree. Most of my hits are in that area and my forearms. Sometimes I do get hit while I am running though. I would get weird hits like only on my hand as my arm was swaying while I ran, now I tuck in my limbs when I move.
g36 monkey

i actually dont get hit very often anymore....when i get hit anywhere besides my mask and gun and hands its when someone does a bunkering run and gets me in the chest or w/e
abr5

i get hit in the knuckles alot. i guess this is becuase mainly my hands and gun are sticking out. At the tourny i went to, i got hit in the hands 3 times, and i bleed each time.
g36 monkey

those shells can cut suprisingly well.....or the velocity was a lil high...ive been hit in the knuckles w/ 325 or so fps.....we made them chrono after we got hit....ouch....
P8ntBallKing10

sounds like it hurts alot
g36 monkey

i thiunk thats the worst place to get hit because ive never been hit in my crotch before....thats why i bought those gloves i havent even been able to use yet Laughing
sinisterNorth

A5s are great guns, whether for a beginner or experienced player. Upgradeable and reliable, so he wont have to worry about babying it so much.

If he wants that other gun, let him get it. It's his money and it'll be the gun he uses for awhile. There's no sniping in paintball for oh so many reasons, just make sure he knows that.

I usually get hit in the hands or mask. Knuckles hurt. My first time getting hit there was an old 4x4 Shocker, 300+ fps, and no gloves...Learned something that night.
