Get whatever brand your local field provides. I would stay away from big stores. Even the good paint sits on the shelves for a while.
Stay away from co-2. Go with HPA. The hammer is unregulated, so it will benefit from a HPA since its a reg'd air source. Ninja is the best choice.
Just go visit your field and people will help you. Its all part of the experience. Have fun, learn a few things, and meet new people.
I can go on and on about what you need to do and learn, but it is best learned through experience.

-^^^ same question as above but with co2 and/or gas sources... Whats a good brand and best bang for my buck? Where do I get my tanks filled? With my Hammer 7, what size tank should I purchase?
-Anything I should know before I visit the local field for my first time? Outside of goggles and gloves, any other gear thats a must have?
