Edit button is there for a reason.

Why do you ask if it is a good package AFTER you buy it? What's the point of that?

Once you get it, shoot it and llocate anything that needs to be improved on. Is it slow? buy an RT or E-Grip. Is it inconsistent? buy a reg. Etc.

How much did you spend on that paintball kit. I would get a e-grip, because in ,speedball ,tourny would't allow the RT.

Ha ha. Angry newbs are amusing.

And I get what you are saying now. Really the best way to improve on the kit would be an E-Grip or RT; everything else seems to be in okay shape. I think HPA is a justified purchase; just spend the money and get at LEAST a 68/4500 CF tank. Anything less and you will run out of air rather quickly.

Oh, and get a haircut.

That's all that matters.

Once you get the E-Grip or RT, I advise that you not spend much more money upgrading it. Most people that spend a thousand bucks upgrading an A-5 end up regretting it. Just a heads up.

EDIT- The only way to know if your field fills HPA is to ask them. Chances are, they do fill it.

Yea i know thas what i planned on. i love tippmanns. i would rather have this than a G7. even tho i think the ions are pretty cool as as a speedball gun i might buy one and supe it up and i really wouldnt have anywhereelse to go with equipment in my eyes.

 

alright sweet. and look i edited!!!!!!!!!!! i bet ur jumping for joy

i dont have enuf money for HPA but is it worth the money even if u dont care for em? im fine with my 20 oz but if its a super duper upgrade ill save for one you know what i mean? o look i editted again dont wet urself.

Once you get an E-Grip, I highly recommend you buy HPA. The high ROF from the E-Grip will have problems with C02.

alright but the only thing i will use the egrip for is maybe 3 burst and full auto for my own cover when movin up so could C02 hold for like 5 sec of sustained auto?
