looking to buy an airsoft pistol

Hey all, airsoft noob here :]. To be honest I've never played airsoft in my life and don't think i ever will, not because of the actual game itself (it looks like hell of a fun time) but because there are no local fields around where I live.

Well anyways, I'm looking to buy an airsoft pistol to play with around at my house, just for plinking cans off in the backyard, wont be shooting anybody or anything living. Specifically looking for a pistol with over 400 fps and *no see throughs*, can be metal or strong plastic that runs off Co2 or green gas / propane.

I also apologize if this is the wrong section to post this thread at but i thought the general section would be the most appropriate. If any of you are wondering, I'm 19 years of age but don't think ill be able to get age verified since I don't play airsoft and won't be at any fields (if i read the age verification thread right).

So, if any of you could suggest a place to purchase an airsoft pistol that fits my want description that will ship to BC canada I'd really appreciate it. thanks.

you need to get age verified no matter what if you want to buy a pistol here, but you dont need to meet an AVer at a game, you go to their place as well, anyways, most pistols shoot around 300 FPS just FYI,

They're called priorities. Get yourself some.

You want to go to Canadian Tire, they have a good selection of CO2 powered air pistols that look surprisingly real and would be great for plinking. Not the "soft air" clear crap, I'm talking about the black walter pistols that shoot metal rounds. These pistols shoot quite high and I think you'll be satisfied.

Also, there is a very clearly labelled "newbie tank" area of this board; it's for stuff like this fyi.

.177 air pistols are best for plinking. Seriously, a lot cheaper, more accurate, and overall great for that kind of stuff.

You can get "serious" air pistols like they use in the olympics like this one: http://accurateshooter.net/Blog/anschutzair02.jpg (be warned these get pretty expensive if you go to "Olympic grade" levels)

or you can get something for fun like these ones: http://www.dlairgun.com/Air-Pistols.html (they will shoot a .177 cal pellet at around 495-500 FPS (any higher and you will need a PAL)).

ah i should have mentioned the only reason i'd want a airsoft pistol over a pellet/airgun is because i want to shoot some 6mm metal bb's i already have, which is also why the pistol needs to be over 400fps to be able to fire them.I've had really bad luck finding a website that sells pistols like that in canada so I thought i'd ask you guys for a reference.

If you're over 18, get Age Verified.

If you aren't, wait til you're 18. Don't worry, those metal BBs will still be good.

BC, but if this is about age verification forget it, i don't want to do it because its a waste of my time. I'd just like a straight answer, it could even be "there aren't any stores in canada that sell airsoft guns" which i doubt's true. It just seems i can never get a straight answer on any airsoft website. But i do appreciate the help from the people that suggested getting a airgun, even though it's not what I'm looking for.

You said you wanted to buy an airsoft pistol. So if that is true, you will drive to where fucking ever you need to, in order to meet an Age Verifier, or you won't be buying said airsoft pistol through anyone on this site.
And if you keep pulling attitude, being 19 won't even get you verified, as they look at your maturity level. And from what you have displayed so far, I think you just got fail verified.
Now you are starting on a very bad note here at ASC, with the people who will help you, if you fucking grow up, and act your age.
