New To Airsoft, No Clue What To Look For

Hi everyone.
I'm sorry for the stereotypical Newbie post, but in this case I really am stuck. I am totally new not only to airsoft but also any other combat-simulation sports, like paintball, and have limited experience with firearms. As a result I am having trouble picking an airsoft gun that will work for me. My problem is that I am a fairly large person, 6'2" with a large frame (think linebackeresque), and I have large hands. The closest thing I have held to an airsoft gun was a disarmed M-16 at a museum and I found it bordering on uncomfortably small. This has been my only frame of reference and as a result I am not sure where to start looking. I have done some research online to see if I could find something, but the technical specs are little more than gibberish to me and it has not helped. I know that my best bet would probably be to go into a retailer, Imperial Airsoft in Calgary being the only local one I know, but I would really appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction, or give me some examples to use as a basis for further research.
Thanks, and sorry for the long post,
Ducking is useless, but gratifying none the less.
