I would like to see less posts about not getting a sniper rifle and more posts on thinking about the role he/she wants to play. That said, most airsoft sniper rifles have roughly the same range as a aeg, but you also have to consider that bolt actions are virtually silent, more accurate (somewhat in a physical sense and more so in a mental state). Right now I'm planning on getting a bar-10, but then again it is my fourth gun.

Well, I'm not sure how much guns are in Canada, but a decent gun over here costs around $150 (I looked at the dboys scar and the full metal m4), so I'm guessing the same gun would be like $200-250? When you buy a 60$ gun, generally you end up wasting your money because you won't be able to upgrade it (maybe minor upgrades), and you'll probably end up wanting a new gun in a few months anyways.
yes i agree with you, but, most of the 15-16 year olds here want a sniper rifle as a first gun, because they play Call of Duty, or other shooting video games....(I made that decision 2 years ago, when I was 16 and was playing COD as a sniper......and I later realize that it was a waste......). Almost everybody on asc started with a spring sniper rifle, and switched right away to AEG, because you dont really have advantages beeing a sniper in airsoft.

- projectile is so light, wind affects its trajectory .....
- your range is the same as a aeg, since you have a spring piston inside of the gun, your barrel isnt as long as the receiver, so....basically, the barrel on a vsr-10 is same lengh or shorter then a m4-m16 with a 14.5 inch barrel.....
- no point and shoot....

also. her ein canada, we have importation rules....so full black airsofft guns are "in a grey area" of the law....

Few are able to import some airsoft guuns, so here the choice isnt as big as in the USA... and prices are higher too....almost 2-4x the price, depending on avaibility.....

And back to the OP..... what is your budget for your first airsoft gun? and how old are you?
