Well at the time we were in a bit of a hurry my other mask had broken and there was a game that day so obviously I didn't have time to order it online.
I don't get any chops. Not yet atleast. I guess I might as well get them anyways

Here's your shopping list, in order of importance:
2. Something to hold pods.
That is all.
Although, you did mention you have a 24oz CO2 tank. Puz is on the right track: It might be a smart idea to get a remote line, and if you're going to run with pods and a remote line, you might as well get a vest.

Remote line: A 24 once tank is pretty large, definatly find a place to put that becuase it will really wieght your marker quite a bit. any yourself come to think of it. but it will feel alot less if its supported on your hips. ( not your lower back, big thing to watch. you want the wieght of the tank on your hips.)
E-grip: always a nice option, you can definatly ease the effects of trigger finger with this... or make them worse. but only time will tell
clicky pen mod: hasnt been mentioned. but in short. homemad modifycation that roughly 75% of tippmann users are aware of. the other 15% are becoming aware.
barrel kit: always a nice thing to have when your constantly changing paint or fields, unless your a sponsered by a paintball manufactorer who will supply you with a specific type.
My against ideas:
Larger hopper: stick to your normal 200 round cyclone loader... infact you have a local shop nearby grab a Tac-cap their great for helping you lower your markers wieght and profile. plus it might help your accuracy problem which you mentioned before ( nobody in this forum is a paintball crack shot. thier just used to thier marker thats all)
a stock: when you/If you plan on usuing a remote line try without the back stock, the usless weight will only slow you down. plus the stock itself tends to get in the way of your mask.
above all keep it simple.
kiss rule. K.I.S.S.
keep it simple stupid.
