These questions will help narrow down your gun choices. Have fun!
LOL >> i am 42yo, play Xball and supair tournies, i have spent ~$4k on gear.
Where will he play?
The local field will probably use C02 or compressed air >> that will narrow your choices as what to get.
If he is not interested after 12 months or so the marker can be sold.
If he is serious then expect to cough up for an air system ~$200 and a decent marker ~$900-1300
