And in airsoft brand new doesn't mean better. There is a "breaking-in" period that shows a few kinks that might not enable a noob to enjoy his first rifle as much due to lack of experience with the guns.
The SRC is decent but getting AV'ed should be a priority. Attend a few games, talk to people about the rules of the sport; things to know about the guns, which companies are good and which ones to avoid etc...
While there you can also ask to hold and shoot peoples guns as most will be happy to do so. This way you can find out which guns suit you the best first-hand. You may find that the G36 is not the gun for you, thus saving you time and money. Show a willingness to learn and people will take you under their wing in a heart beat.
My trust is in whiskey, in weed and in Slayer, its GODDAMN ELECTRIC
