1. I only want to buy Tokyo Marui products, since they were nice enough to introduce me to the sport. is this feasible/advisable? I've heard mostly good things about them... is there any retailer in the GTA that carries them?
Yes, but you need to get age verified, there are a tonne of TM products in the classifeds, although there are better metal guns

Dual wielding is fun but past CQB its entirely impractical and you cannot aim worth a damn

You can carry it, but it'd be classified as your "Primary" most likely and in a lot of games you'd be restricted for ammo.

Depends on the game, sometimes there is a "colour" that each team wears e.i civies, tan, green. but mostly just wear what you are comfortable in.

different games different rules some have medic rules, some have you wait 15 min or more, depends on the game and host really

you really haven't read much on here have you? the community is rather accepting and easy going some people hangout after games and go for beers.

you do not need a team, there are plenty of "walk on" players, if you are new and want to attend a game, first of all post in the game thread t make sure you aren't walking into a 72hr hard core only real gear milsim, most of the guys/girls are quite nice in helping newbies out.

1 more thing, the TM anime is all well and good, but its not a very good place of information for airsoft in CANADA, read through the forums again.
just because they can dual wield and get sniper rifle accuracy means nothing in the real world
