Sorry to mislead you. When I said I checked out the classifieds I meant craigslist, kijiji, etc.. not the forum's classifieds.
And I don't really have the time to meet up with some random stranger to show them my ID and prove I am as old as I say I am, so don't worry about it. I've made my decision and decided to get an AEG.. Velocity Arms to be specific.
And the "wealth of knowledge and experience" you speak of took 23 posts before I was informed that what I was looking for simply did not exist. Instead, I was bombarded with a bunch of irrelevant suggestions and negative comments.
Thanks to everyone who had something helpful to contribute! :tup:
