I'm from Richmond Hill.
I caught airsoft fever while walking around in Pacific Mall one day and it led me to start looking around the web for airsoft guns. My search eventually led me to this forum, and after a bit of deliberation and procrastination, I signed up. While in downtown on other business, I stopped by TTAC3 and got age-verified, so now I'm mostly just waiting for it to go through.
My primary motivation for taking up airsoft is for collecting the guns.
I like guns. However, I don't want to go through the trouble of acquiring real steel, and in any case I'd like something I could practice with at home without seriously damaging the plaster. I also like tinkering with things, and from what I've seen so far, airsoft gives good opportunity to do that.
I don't exactly have a lot of cash at the moment but I do want a good quality airsoft gun, namely a pistol. Since that will likely set me back quite a bit, I probably might not have enough money to spend on equipment or a primary AEG. I probably won't be joining any games in the near future, but I would like to eventually.
