I started in july, first gun was a G&G m14 socom max... about 10k rounds through it priced at just under 700 bucks after shipping and tax. Nothing wrong with it, no complaints other than expensive mags.... well and shitty plastic stock, but plastic breaks so it's not unexpected.

Opened it up at the end of the season, it was very well tuned from factory, piston was only starting to show signs of wear, upgraded the spring so it shoots 400 fps instead of 360. Need to install a mosfet to protect the trigger contacts and so I can switch to lipos.

Picked up a used kwa m226 ptp... 400ish bucks... replaced the aluminum slide on it because something was dropped either gun or something onto the slide that bent and cracked corner, still worked fine, but I worry about those things. Shoots like a champ.

picked up a used TM p90... I should've known better on this one... 350ish bucks hasn't worked right in the 4 months I've had it.

just bought a new CA p90 for 450. Works great, just need to get a lighter spring for it and install my mosfet from the TM into it so I can use my lipos with it.

I didnt listen to advise.
I purchased a used CA M16 sportline. so it was black but plastic
Withing 4 months I had bought a 170 dollar metal body. and later a systema gearbox. etc etc.

Anyway by the end of the year the only original part was the outer barrel. haha

I sold it at a loss. But to a friend who started new int he sport so he has a solid custom gun.

Purchased a tm p90 for 400
and than imported my own magput pts acr in multicam this year. Well aware I would sink 200 dollars into the guts. Which I just did

Still cheaper than hockey. lol

My first gun was a new VFC SR 15E3 10.5" for $600. I've bought other AEGs, but the SR15 is still my primary.

First gun was a crappy clearsoft H&K G36C for $180. Tried it, didn't like it and bought a G&G MP5A5 for $340 later that night online. I soon discovered that an MP5 might not be the best at long range outdoor stuff so a few months later I bought an A&K SVD. Then I thought perhaps that might be too ridiculous for close in stuff so then I bought my current workhorse, the full metal ICS M16A3 RAS for close in work and far out stuff. This thing is such a beast and has been reliable so far.

I paid $400 for an WA SV Infinity Prokiller F3.9 about 12 years ago for my first "real" airsoft gun.
