I'm fond of firefly rubbers, I find they increase my range by a huge amount.

My dad and I went paintballing a couple time's together before I actually got into it cause he's the one who got me into it... Would a field let me play if my dad was with me playing?
I doubt they will even allow u play even if your father play with u. They like to enforce 18+ in most fields. some place will accept 16 but I don't know if there is one with except Xtreme tactics in Winnipeg but they don't allow sniper. But u are lucky to have dad support u. Just wait 4 years more to access all location. Or try to find place that accept 16+ with rental so u can try out different guns like I do before I decide my gun. Sniper don't always is best role for Airsoft game. Most operation has CQB involved.

To add to Kal's post, perhaps you should consider buying one of the aegs he suggested, something simple like an M16, and work on the sneaking and recon aspects. When you think about it, if you're going to get into playing a sniper role later on, it would do you some good to substitute the sniper rifle with an aeg such as the M16, and work on movement, hiding, camo, as well as the other things that have been suggested, such as the combinations of BB's, different brands of BBs, different Hop-up options, etc, etc. This will give you a good understanding of how everything works, prior to you dropping the cash for a sniper and its upgrades. It's always good to get some experience with a gun before you decide to purchase it, and the same goes for the role you want to play in the future. Maybe you'll find sniping completely boring, and want to keep the M16 as your primary. Whos knows, but it's something to consider at the least.

Another thing to add:

With a sniper rifle, you can play only one role. That's it. With a long-barrel AEG, you can do almost anything but CQB effectively.

Sincerely,

Jake,
none, wait till you're 18 before you get a gun, and don't get a sniper rifle for your first gun.

If you're a sniper, you won't need enough ammo to warrant a vest. If you do then you're not playing a sniper and you'd be better off with an AEG. As for ghillie suits, make your own. Self made ones are always superior to store bought ones.

If you're asking about adivce for paintball, wear a deglo orange jacket or whatever other puke colours paintballers wear these days.
