wait to get a drop until after you get a tank, just so you can see how long of a drop you will want
Ghostslinger

yea he's right aboutt the drop cuz it can really get awkward if u mess it up

i know what you mean....no one is perfect....but i would stay the hell away from firstcallpaintball.com....if you google them....you'll probably find a PBnation thread that is four pages of people saying how they got screwed by them..

IMO...i really dont care for drops anymore. i find it quite difficult to run and shoot at the same time when using a drop becuz its way too close to your body. Also, i've talked to some Pro's at the PSP World Cup in Orlando which was like 4-5 months ago and asked wut they thought about drops and they gave me the same exact answer. Thats why not too many pro's use drops now days. But whatever feels comfortable to you. if you want a drop hey go for it.

IMO you should get your Up's in this order once you get money:

1. HPA Tank
2. Barrel
3. Hopper
4. Drop (Optional)
5. Trigger (went for trigger last seeing its a Mech. double trigger wont really help you shoot too much faster if any at all cuz its really difficult to run a 98c or any mech gun for that matter.

Barrel is always the first upgrade, especially on a Tippmann.

hmm guess so...seeing tippy's are built strong dont have to worry bout to much things going wrong from Co2. But HPA should be one of the top things as well.
RoboCop

It really depends how he plans to do things. HPA can be the last thing he gets besides looks and stuff like that. He can do firepower and then he would need an electronic hopper. HPA isn't necessary for a Tippmann, it is just nice to have. Now, with high end electro pneumatic guns, HPA is not an upgrade, it is a necessity. You can always upgrade the size of the tank though.

Since its a tippmann....like robo said you wont need a tank right away.....wait till you get an egrip or anyting.....i mean hpa was awesome when i used it and tere was an amazing difference in co2 but it was the last thing i got. I reccomend the new barrel first then a double trigger (i find you can shoot faster w/ just adouble even w/o firepower upgrades) then a new hopper. THis should get you goin until you may want a faster gun so you get an ebolt and an elctric hopper.....my 2 cents Cheers

ok that will work ty all

Get a barrel, an expansion chamber, and later a RT & hopper at the same time.
If you need more then that then buy a different marker. You can really blow some money on upgrades.
