Getting started in paintball, or any new hobby can be overwhelming. After talking about paintball every day for the last 15 years, I’ve learned a thing or two about which paintball guns are best in which category. Lets take a look at some of the best starter markers, wether you want something that is super basic or something electronic with a high rate of fire.
