I played speedball competitively for a long time and got burnt out. I now play pump and really enjoy playing just for fun again.
I would suggest a mag or well timed cocker to start with. Plenty of parts are available for both and they can dish out plenty of paint as well. Get one of those new revvies, and a compressed air tank and your setup will be less than one of the electros alone. If you get a cocker that is well timed, don't mess with it. Clean the bolt, put a few drops of oil in the Asa and leave it alone.
As for masks:
Test shoot the gun before buying it and most of all, have fun.
