I find these forums and EBAY are a great place to buy gear. Just don't rush out buying a ghillie suit or other such "leet" items till you actually get to a game and see what people actually wear. Creative Outdoors prices on mags and bb's are fucking outrageous, you can get them here for 1/3 the price.
Ack! Replicrap, doesn't sound good
Well, I guess I'll see if I've been owned when I get out to my first game and have a chance to compare
Fortunately I didn't pick up any mags or bb's whilst there at least. Hopefully this influences other noobs before they buy a bunch of crap thinking it's all good. Ah the learning process, hammer that knowledge in! :smack:
