Hicaps have always been frowned upon. Cheap guns and [repro] gear, combined with the strong dollar, make for some of the lowest entry costs into airsoft EVER. Are mags really that expensive? [rhetorical question]
I think this has less to do with what kind of cap you use and how many bb's one carries on their person and more to do with learning proper fire control and restraint.
Anyone that started playing before to 2003-04 realizes that mags are dirt cheap compared to what we used to pay for them.
