Plus 1, it's V2.
Think about getting age verified anyways, especially if you want to be taken seriously within the community. You will get access to more information beyond just the classifieds as well. Age verification is an important part of all of us collectively protecting our sport in Canada. It gives us all good control points as well, while dealing with individuals online, that we can't meet personally.
As far as your loadout goes. The King Arms is by far my recommendation for a starter. But as stated before, "expect" to dump more Money into it soon. Unfortunately Airsoft is a never ending whirlwind of products and upgrades. Depending on whom you play with will inevitably determine what you will buy. That's just a fact, and something all new airsofters will go through.
A well, properlly tuned gun is essential. And if you want to run a heavier BB for stability, you'll need the extra FPS boost. Not for accuracy, just to make sure your BB arrives on time. Remember, a working reliable gun that doesn't stack up against your competition may inevitably turn you away from airsoft. Accuracy, range, reliability will all play factors.
Think of your Airsoft guns/gear like this. Your new; and entering a world of airsoft at the beginner level. The guys you'll be playing with have experience. Some have bought gear/guns at the Ferrari level, and have payed or spent time to have them tuned up properly. Others spent some cash on a Honda Civic, and threw $50,000 under the hood, and another $20,000 on the outside. Your standing there saying "I bought the Civic, and some stickers for the outside, because it's reliable". It won't however keep you up in the race.
Although Airsoft comes down to the players ability mostly, the tools they use have a direct impact. Their guns hit their mark, and their camo hides them. Your equipment must do the same, not just "work". Getting AV'ed will give you access to endless info on this sport, so you know what your looking for in greater detail.
Welcome to Airsoft, have fun.
ďREALITY IS LIKE A STONE. TO MANY ITíS HARD AND COLD, THEY CANíT HUG IT OR EAT IT, IT ONLY FRUSTERATES THEM AND DOESNíT DO THEM MUCH GOOD. TO OTHERS ITíS STRONG AND DEPENDABLE, YOU CAN BUILD WITH IT, BUILD UPON IT, OR WORK WITH IT, ALSO USE IT TO SMASH PEOPLE IN THE FACE.Ē
