Well with much debate and a million differing opinions as to whats best for a "noob" it boiled down to 2 choices for me.
Socom diablo (tan)
King arms full metal M4.
The winner here is the M4. By far the most recommended by all.
Seems I can pretty much make the diablo with it, have the full metal body and come out ahead in the money game. Winning all around
Going to hit up my first CQB this friday. Hope the peeps there are respectable and it goes well
1911 full metal gas side arm is also being considered
Glad i found this forum and props to the peeps kind enough to PM me with advise and being cool.
