Vibes are a good choice, it's fast, reliable, and from what I've read on pbreview, pretty light. It's cheap too, so you don't blow all your money on just the gun.
Yeah I use an M-16 grip, wanna fight about it?

Best webcomic ever.

Yes, i would agree with that but the only problem ive seen with vibes and as well as SP-1's is the ASA. The local field rents them out now and it seems that the ASA's crack and leak after use after a few months of play. Given its being used as a rental isnt saying its being treated well, but we do keep them clean externally as well as internally.

Anything light and fast. I prefer my little Proto Matrix Rail, light as a feather, and fastest shooting marker for the price range. If you're into Tippmann I'd suggest the new 98 Custom Platinum with E-Grip and get a Cyclone for it or some other good hopper.

I'm new to paint ball and don't know much about all the guns. I've been researching all sorts of guns for a few hours now, but there's just too many possibilities. I do know that the dagger position is the one for me, so I need something light I guess. I'd really appreciate your opinion.

i would start with a tippmann or a spyder (xtra) they both are small light reliable and upgradable. and thheyy wont breaak the bank either. i play dagger most of the time love it! i use a tippman carver one, 48ci tank and 12in carbon fiber barrel, it light and reliable. its totally upgradable and dependable, and remember its not how maany ballls youu shoot but how accurate your are with your shots. i only carry one full hopper and 2 140 round tubesand thats more thenn ii nneed for one game. hope its helps.

BT-4 is affordable, dependable, and expandable. I bought one after playing my first paintball game 3 years ago, and I'm only just now moving on to a TM-7. The BT-4 served me without fail all that time.

For any paintballer, a good starting gun is an affordable, but reliable gun.

Used Automags are great for this (but I disagree that they're optimal Dagger guns - a classic Automag is freaking HEAVY). Old Tippmann Pro-Lites are good too. You can get both for fairly cheap online. If you want something new, an Azodin Kaos or Blitz will be a good choice.

Honestly, a dedicated Dagger is going to want a super-light gun. One of the speedball guns in the 200.00 to 400.00 range should fit the bill nicely.

But if you're a beginner, that means you aren't there yet. You're better off with a cheap and reliable gun to start with.

Oh, and if you want to get into pump guns, I'd say a used Trracer off eBay is the best purchase for a beginner (it'll usually run about $50.00). Just make sure it comes with a feedneck attachment and velocity adjustment option (some don't have them). If you want a new pump for cheap, the Empire Trracer pump is the best option, although the Tippmann SL-68 and Azodin Kaos Pump are good too. Don't spring for a Phantom or tricked out Autococker pump until you're sure you like pump play.

Ummm...

If you haven't noticed, there AREN'T any other threads on this forum. This if the top topic on the forum.

No one is in this forum. No one is posting to this forum. The forum is nearly comatose.

So why on earth does it matter if people are pulling up old posts and updating them with new information for whoever happens to be reading?

Edit: I just read the other response. In future I'll simply start a new topic instead of necro-ing an old discussion.
