Don't buy anything from Canadian Tire or Walmart it will crapout on you and leave you wishing you had that money back to invest in a better gun, please trust me I know this from experience.

A lot of people consider JG's to be absolute crap but for $250 or so you get a gun that is far better than anything you'd find at Walmart or Crappy Tire. These guns don't have the same quality or quality control as some of the more expensive brands so there is a higher chance of getting a lemon, but I have read about many people who are happy with their JG gun. If you understand that this is a plastic gun and needs to be treated gently, cleaned and cared for it will perform well for a long time. The other benefit to JG's is that they are TM clones so it will be easy to find upgrades, replacement parts and mags.

I know you don't want to hear this but if you are actually 18+ it is well worth getting age verified just do it and you won't regret it. Find an AV'er make an appointment and hop in a car, bring a friend they can get AV'd too it'll be fun... ROAD TRIP!!! It is very easy to do and you'll have access to many AV retailers not otherwise available, and a large selection of guns. The classifieds are also good, if you're patient and do some research you can find a good used gun for a great price.

The most important thing is to do your research, find the gun you want eg. M4, Mp5, G36 ect., this should be based on your body size and playing style. Doing your research does not mean starting a thread saying hey guys is this gun any good? It means searching this site and others for reviews on the gun. Put in the work and you'll be rewarded.

Edit: don't be too concerned with FPS an inexpensive spring will easily fix a hot gun and your retailer can probably get it shooting in your desired range if you ask.
