Well, 99% of the people will say NOT to start out with a sniper rifle. However, Im part of the 1% percent that doesnt encourage or discourage.
My first sniper rifle was an AGM VSR10, clone of one of the best sniper rifles, the TM VSR10. However, AGM is a clone gun, and clones are prone to be lemons, meaning they will break constantly and it's a money pit. in the 5 years I had it, I only had to replace the spring guide, and maintain the rifle.
The AGM is what inspired me to buy the TM (Tokyo Marui) VSR10, which was my best investment in the sport of airsoft. The CA (or Classic Army) M24 sniper rifle is also an excellent platform as a first bolt action sniper rifle. WELL can also make some good clones, but again, clones are prone to being lemons.
Overall, I started with a BA rifle because there were less parts that can break as opposed to AEGs and especially GBBRs, and because it was easy to work with
