I really dont get why, if you ask a newb question on asc, you will get flamed. But when you go to our local fourms such as joc and the tac ops fourms, and ask the exact same question, you will get a polite reply. Here's an example from today.

Not sure standards in the area, do i need a permit for a gun? I don't want to start with a beginner gun I think it ruins the first experience so im willing to shell for a good gun what do you guys suggest? also i have a pellet gun i got from canadian tire can i use the bbs in that? it's c02
Now if you ask me, this thread would be locked and trashed (well at least on asc) now take a look and see what people said.

as for starter guns. lots of people have m4's or mp5's both guns are awsome i would sugest the m4 because it is most versitile. or get a shotgun cause they are tight too.

But also all of our "airsoft" guns that you will find that those sites have a hop up system which gives the bb backspin making it really accurate... soft air and what not, does not have one. So I'd ditch that thing. You can rent guns to if you want to try one out before you buy. not a bad way of doing things

Those are the Augs and others with the magazine behind the triger, you usualy get alot longer barel and a smaller body gun, i love my Aug more than anyother gun out there. Shotys are prity nice too, most shoot 3 bbs in a triangle formation and are hella arurate but have a slower rated of fire.

As you can see your choices are really open
Have fun and hope to see you soon in my sights

The G36c is great for out door and in and a solid design with a nice weight, not to long for indoor but also just as great for outdoor also lots of mods for the gun you just gotta get used to the futuristic look of the newer Hechler and Koch guns.
If everyone made replys like that/or didnt reply at all we wouldent have a problem. Now I know i'v said some things to people before myself that might have not been the nicest things, so I'v decided If I dont have something nice to say, I wont say it.
I can't measure my sig so I got this stupid tag line instead.
