Good Starting Pump Gun

If he rips my legs off, I'll bite him to death.
If he rips my head off, I'll stare him to death.
And if he gouges my eyes out, I'll curse him from beyond the grave.

Phantoms are a very popular choice. They are well built by a highly regarded company. They're efficient, lightweight, and hold their value extremely well. They are capable of being easily changed from using 12grams, a bulk tank, tube fed, and direct fed. ACI Mavericks offer a cheaper alternative to Phantoms. SL-68s from Tippmann can also be found used and are a solid option.
However, the lightweight of Phantoms bothers a fair amount of people. And as far as the pump market goes they are far from rare. Sheridan based markers like the PGP, PMI-I, and Piranha LB or SB are another option. They are made out of brass and you can usually find some on eBay. "Snipers" or Pumped Autocockers are another option.

Now let the Brass whore in me steer you aside to what the newbs and semis users call vintage stuff (real technical term there i swear). But just cause they are old doesn;t mean they can't keep up in the race or win it. Research some old PMI pumps like the PMI II SB or LB, or PMI I. They are great pumps and can be had cheap. The SB and LB can easily be had for under $80 with need of a little TLC, or a bit over $100 for running smooth. SB are short 8" barrels, LBs are 12 i think. They are direct hopper fed and take back bottle tanks, so you can easily shoulder the tank as a stock. PMI I's were stock class, not sure if you want to go that route yet.
edit: show off pictar
the SB is the marker under the Tippy SL 68, 2nd from the bottom, above the Super Stocker

Doesn't matter what gun you have, as long as you can hit what you're looking at.
