Welcome to ASC my friend, maybe we shall see eachother on the field when you'll be 18 (im from MTL too :P).
I was from paintball too and changed for the realism of airsoft. If you have the patience and a lot of love to give to a gun (and cash XD), look at gas gun!! Got one and im pretty happy with it (but AEG are more "noob friendly" i admit)
