foam pellets? some airsoft rifle. Anyways listen to those guys, they know what their talking about. I've been checking out the forums for 2 years maybe longer without even getting a rifle (borrow or rent) and trust me when i say there is a large amount of imformation out there. Also start basic like the KA m4 and build it up to ur dream rifle or get something close to that and build from there. Don't play in areas not designated for airsofting, or you might get some unexpected company.
