Is there anything I can do or am I stuck until I get a summer job?
I think this may help you out a bit.. YouTube - How To Make- 9mm. Pen Gun
Just kidding around...
You'll need at the very least, twice that to get started with any sort of AEG that's NOT from CT or the likes. Good news is after you purchase your AEG, battery, and charger - BBs are so cheap that after your initial purchase, budget won't be hard to keep. Mind you, then you get addicted to airsoft like "Bobby on the corner gets addicted to crack" and it's all over. Budget out the door, Kraft Dinner, face paint and war movies... oh and obviously, you'll need some camo to run around in the woods too...
Anyway, start hunting for a summer job, save up and get something you like.
