Pretty much this. It's sad, but it's only considered high end in paintball if it has a high end price tag.
Due to today's electronics, hpa, parts, and in many leagues caps on bps... A $500 gun is just as good as something that will cost you $1500
The only reason to get the $1500 gun today is for snobbery and bragging rights. It will not make you a better player no matter what the advertising says.
