Pliskin has the exact right idea.
It's better to drop $40 or 50 on a day of gaming than buying a $300 gun that you might get $250 for at best (and have it sitting in your closet while waiting to be sold).
TM or similar are still the best way to go because of low depreciation however with other high quality brands (ie. STAR/ARES, CA, VFC, RS, etc.) out there this is becoming less and less of a selling point for TM. However that being said I still have my eyes on some of the TM guns because of the historical high quality control and it being almost a "household name" in the airsoft world.
