Save a little more money, it's worth it. You can now buy a fairly decent non-clone for cheaper. The other good option is to get age verified and buy used from the classifieds.
Remember my friend; buy cheap, buy twice. If it says clone, avoid it like the plague. $300 will buy you a decent gun. If you find a retailer that carries what your after, and you and a pile of friends are all going to buy one; see if they'll give you a deal on a multiple order. I have handled/used the King Arms Colt M4, and was impressed. It's cheaper than some of the clones, and a great starting platform. If you buy something and it breaks or doesn't shoot true, you and your friends will be disappointed that you didn't save a little more. If your looking to only spend $250 or less on airsoft, you'll be very disappointed with the result, unless your just plinking with it.
Start off on the right foot.
