I hadn't actually planned on painting it just yet. I went out and got some half-finger gloves and some eye protection. I'm planning on going to the meet in Toronto tonight.
I have a relatively low quality aeg, not clearsoft but not good enough to be a known brand, that i'll be taking alongside the clearsoft I bought. I will be likely renting some real equipment from the host to get a feel for some of the options for purchasing.
I'm also going to get AV'd tonight there hopefully and I'll take a look at the classifieds as soon as that's sorted and get something along the lines of the JG MP5SD6 for a starter gun.
