hey whats up...im looking for a good gun around $200, right now i have a model 98 (not custom) which i love, but i kinda want something new. i will definatley consider another tippmann. actually i am looking a an a-5 from www.actionvillage.com for about $220 i have a question about it though...at action village it says that you will get 500 shots from a 9 oz. co2 tank, but at www.xtremez.com it says 250. which one is more accurate? also if you have any other suggestions for what gun to buy, i will really appreciate it.

There are a few variables to deal with, but a stock A-5 should be able to get around 200-300 from a 9 oz.  I wouldn't even bother with a 9 oz with the A-5, really.  It's not enough to make it worth it.

Get a 20 oz and go remote, or switch to CA.

And about the marker....the A-5 would be my choice.  Many upgrades, and the marker will grow with you.  It is easy to learn, and easy to work with, and when you upgrade, there is too many possibilities to mention!

500 shots sounds about right, maybe subtract a few.
NASA and the Americans spent millions of dollars and hundreds of hours to develop a pen that would write in space.....The Russians used a pencil.
