Enter the Next Level with the Tippmann A5

Moving on from the beginning level of paintball play can be a little hard, especially if you are planning to buy all new equipment. Beginner guns are excellent for several reasons, but they are for beginners for a good reason. When it’s time to move up the ranks, you want to get something that can offer you more for your game, like the Tippmann A5. When you move up to a mid-range gun, you can get better speeds, lighter weights, and more reliability from you guns. Choosing the right mid-range gun might seem like the hard part, but it really doesn’t have to be.

Tippmann has been one of the top names in paintball for several years, and you can expect some great quality from these gun makers. With this reputation for quality, you can buy with confidence and your gun will not let you down. The prices for beginner markers usually run around one hundred dollars, though you can find some that are even less expensive than that. The Tippmann A5 runs somewhere in the neighborhood of two hundred dollars, which is a great price for a mid-range gun. Some other companies offer guns similar to the Tippmann A5 for three hundred dollars or more, but why would you want to pay more for the same features?

When you’re ready to take the next step, there are other pieces of equipment that you might want to upgrade, too. As always, you will want to be sure to get protective gear for your head and eyes. If you’re ready to spend a little more money on your gear, then you can get masks and helmets that allow for more mobility while you’re in the field. Pads and other protective gear for your body can be upgraded into special pants and jerseys that have the padding built in. When you’re not as bulky, you can move better on the field.

Just be careful to keep your head when you’re making purchases. It can be so easy to get excited and splash out too much too soon. To protect your bank account and ensure that the game can continue, you should choose your products and paintball gear carefully and get the things that will help your game at your current level. Save the thousand dollar guns for a bit later down the road or if you decide to play paintball professionally.
