It's a statement of fact. You are entirely correct about a good battery and charger being necessary for participating in airsoft at anything more than a 'basement firing range' level. I was merely trying to suggest an airsoft gun that would be massively less frustrating (and actually usable) out of the box.
Oogee, I'll add:
'You should always plan on spending extra for a quality aftermarket battery and charger, regardless of which gun you choose.'
