Everyone here starts modding at the beginning. It's a lot more rewarding blasting away with something you improved yourself. I can nearly promise you'll toast a blaster or two while you're still learning the basics but once you get there its so addictive.
Most beginner mods fail because the blaster they chose to start with is too complicated. I would suggest starting with something extremely basic - a Nite finder or a fire strike. Front loading, no stupid locks, few moving pieces. Very tough to screw up (but not impossible). Find a good write up and read it 3 times before even opening the blaster.
If a pre-modded blaster breaks mid war - you'll be out for the rest of the day if you don't understand what's going on in there.
To molest the famous quote buy Sun Tzu: Know thy blaster, Know thy self.
"and we should respect the people who make our blasters. Even if we do molest the hell out of them..."
