Just recently got into paintball and I am looking to get a nice starter gun. I am thinking of the VS-1 which I can get at ****s sporting goods for $119.00, is that a good price? The other gun I was leaning towards is the Sniper TS which comes in a kit also at ****s sporting goods. My question is which of these is the better gun? Thanks for the help..

Welcome to SOC.

Really either of those 2 markers will be fine for a starter gun. The TS comes with a second barrel, but it is not the best so really go with the one you like the looks of better.

Also check local Paintball retailers and here in the BST for markers. You would be surprised what you could get within your budget.

I Would Personally Go With The Vs1 It Is A Lot Better Than The Ts. It Comes With Eyes And It Is Electronic.

2. a VS2 is 200, so why buy used when you can get new for the same price?

Nope can't get it for $119.00. I called the store first to see if they had the gun and the guy I spoke with said "yes, it's $119.00." So I went down to get it and it is actually $169.00 so I will probably get it somewhere else.
