Hello, I've been looking into the sport of airsoft for quite some time now. I'm not yet 18, but turning 18 this september and hope to get verified when I am able to.
Just wondering though, since I'm not a dedicated hardcore airsoft fan, I'm wondering if you guys think getting the L96 wouldn't be too bad of a choice just for playing around in my backyard (My backyard is enclosed, so there's no chance of anyone seeing me or anything, it's pretty big as well)?
I just intend when I am 18 to play with maybe 4-5 friends in backyard skirmishes with no real rules or anything like MILSIM.
I love accuracy more than anything, and am looking for a sniper rifle with a budget of 200 bucks at most.
I saw this video on youtube by airsoftreports
YouTube - Airsoft Reports Quality Review- WELL L96 Sniper Rifle
It seems like something that'd be worth the money, considering how I intend to play airsoft.
I've of course heard from any a posters about advice on how a sniper rifle should not be a first choice for a newbie, but is that only in regards to people who plan to become a completely dedicated player? Do you guys think that for the type of player I intend to become, that a sniper rifle would be an alright choice (because I love sniper rifles) for just playing with some friends?
Thanks for the advice.
