The first gun I wanted was a 32* pt extreme. One of the guys at the shop said "No! You want a tippmann or a Piranha!" The asking price for both set-ups was $140-$180. I went to a local Wal-Mart wanna-be and got the piranha set for $79.95 clearence. I was happy played with it for 7 months got a cocker and then a few more cockers then my phantom, stuck with that for two years and then got a USP sold it and I now have a Sydarm.
I'm happy there is a nice pistol place to hang out at.
