Yup. AEGs are a safer bet if this is you're just getting into airsoft. The MP5 is flexible enough for you to participate in both Mil-Sim and CQB games, and the TM MP5 series is less expensive than other, larger AEGs. But from my experience, it may not be as satisfying as a larger weapon. I've had quite a bit of experience with the TM MP5s and in stock form they're not very powerful - although more than adequate for experience building as your first AEG.
