I think for 200 you could get an open class phantom and a 4oz tank. 50rd hoppers are super cheap. For 300, you could have anything but the most rare phantoms. And when budgeting is an issue, phantoms are a great choice for saving on paint, and you get your money back whenever you sell it.

I started playing at about 35, and I am turning 40 this year. When I was young, paintball was just too expensive. Now I have three young kids and almost zero time, but I bargain for about half a day a month. I miss some months, and MCB tides me over between playing.
