Well it is an expensive hobby and sometimes its well worth the price considering the amount of fun we get to have. I have seen the clear ones and i dont really like it. We buy our guns a lot of accessories to make it look real. But i do think the clear ones has its uses because you wont be able to use it for mischief like some of the news in my country where airsoft guns are being used for robbery and harassment of other people. Theres a law here that you can get your gun confiscated if you expose it in public and dont have a license. Seriously its the stupid people that make our lives as airsofters miserable.
