Just to follow up with Groombug's comments about upgrading, here in Saskatchewan the groups that play (Regina, Saskatoon, and Moose Jaw) have a simple rule for new players and upgrades: Minimum 1 year of playing stock, and earning the right and trust to use an upgraded gun in our games. This helps protect others from you not knowing the strength and damage an upgraded gun can cause up close and on certain parts of the body.
