only options would really be something from aftermath I would say. Airsoft doesn't have to be expensive, but you really need to know how to look for deals, and be patient, very very patient. I have aquired 3 AEGS, 2 vests, 1 GBB pistol, and everything else needed *mags goggles, tracer unit, ect* and i have only spent about 2000... now thats over about 8 months.
BTW all the AEGS are TM nothing crappy.
How ever if your not age verified be prepared to spend more and get less as companies like walmart and canadian tire like to lure people in with *shiney* stuff displayed and stroke that good ol impulse buy part of their brain.
