maybe I am a better shot than you :P
All the info you will ever need.
just a word of advice though bring a reliable AEG with you for the first few games as you find things that need to be replaced/fixed/tweaked. Oh and carry a bottle of locktite with your kit. Your gonna need it.
no sounds like you die alot actually. you have time to sit back and reload and re-gas each mag at you spawn point or however you play the game.
however if you play milsims or just fairly long skirmishes and go all day without being shot or taken out of the game, 4 or 5 mags is not nearly enough, being stuck in the woods without the luxery to just refill mags you won't last, I fire one shot at my opponant and I hit them. 5, 30 rounds mags were not enough for me in an 8 hour game, I now carry 11, sometimes I only make it through 8 mags but having to refill mags is really gay because you loose out on game time
