Those are pretty good prices. I would say that a barrel is one of the best first upgrades. The LAPCO Bigshot is a very reliable and affordable barrel. If you are having trouble deciding between barrels, check out www.pbreview.com Good luck!

I would get a barrel first. The J&J ceramic and Lapco Bigshot are good and not too expensive. About websites. Paintballgear.com is good. Some other websites would be www.countypaintball.com and www.888paintball.com!

Wow, you got the 98 Custom, 9 oz. tank, and 500 paintballs for $300?

You can get all that plus things for under $130 at ActionVillage.

That should not have cost you $300.

I'm tight on money too.

I'd say get a barrel and maybe a new loader (Viewloader eVo II) will be a pretty good start. Just save up to go the fields and play which is the most important.

it doesnt matter, a barrel is the most important upgrade you can buy and it should be bought first.
