I understand somepeople URGE others to buy higher brands and such. But then again are you going to play as much? if not why not start out with a broxa or kraken.
I'll leave the gun argument aside, we all know the merits of buying a high end gun over a lower end one (even if I didn't play much, I'd still want a gun that shoots well). Certain things though you really can't skimp on:
-Good battery (the ones that come with cheap guns are crap)
-Good charger (see above)
-Good vest. Cheap vests are exactly that -cheap
It's all those costs that add up in airsoft.. the gun is only part of the equation.
