I don't think there's any issues in recommending any gun even if not Age Verified, however we can't post to any store or guns and 18+ stuff like so.

DarkxKilla: The King Arms as stated already is most likely considered the starter gun by excellence. However, you'll want to get at least twice that money in order to start airsoft "for real", as you'll need to buy (beside the gun of course), a good battery and charger, boots, eye protection (mandatory for obvious reasons), some magazines for the gun, something to put your mags in like a vest with mag pouches, a canteen or hydration carrier (you need water on the field), and the likes.

The total can amount to 600+$ to a few thousands, depending on the brands and quality of stuff you buy. In general, you get what you pay for, sor pay for cheap stuff now, you'll buy again next year, and the total will exceed what you planned on spending. Exactly what happened to me. Last year I spent 800$ to start + a few more to get some more optional stuff.

This year, I bought another 800-1200$ of gear and accessories (a second gun in that too), and I want to change my cheap vest and pouches for a better one, etc etc...

Not everyone will do like so, and a lot will play for a while by spending just a minimum amount of money. But what I want to illustrate is that airsoft is expensive so you'll want to pile up some cash before getting into the game.

Also, another very important aspect (not of airsoft but of Airsoft Canada's forums) is to get Age Verified. The FAQ section will fill you in on this.
