No set prices and rarely will the fields have rentals, you'll usually have to rent from another player. So far as i can tell $ of renting averages between $20-40

Usually $20 for a gun/battery/some mags...maybe BBs, but you should have another $10 to buy a bag of BBs (they'll last a while).

Post up in the game thread that you're a newbie and need a rental. Someone will reply/PM one way or another.

IMHO...you're a ways off from worrying about upgrades. There'll be plenty of time to do all that once you've picked out what you want to run with. Nothing is more of a waste of money than buying an AEG, dumping $200-300+ of parts into it...and then finding out that you'd rather have a different type of AEG altogether.

So far as buying from overseas or buying locally...lots of guys go either way. For me...I buy local. I like to chit chat with the owner of the shop...hear what's coming down the pipe next...physically see&touch this and that. I also prefer to see something, pay for it, and walk out with it in my hands. I really don't like ordering off a website, hoping that it's being packed/shipped ok, hoping that customs processes it quickly, hoping that the postal system doesn't lose/break/damage something. I don't like missing deliveries and then having to run over to the post office to pick up parcels.

So...I buy local. With a cash deal on the table it's about the same as if I ordered it from overseas, shipped and got dinged with duties. Sometimes better...sometimes just a bit more.

I deal with Jugglez at Airsoftparts.ca. I cannot recommend him enough to anyone looking for quality parts/accessories with fast shipping.

OP:

Keep in mind that m102404 is referring to no prohibited parts/items. Prohibited parts/items (ie. whole guns) you should always buy locally.

As for rentals they can be as cheap as $20 or up (or a case of beer or w/e).

A day of play should cost you about $60-80. Say $20 for field entrance, $20-30 for rental gun, mags and whatever, $10 for a bag of BB's, $5 for gas (if car pooling), $10-15 for timmies and lunch (picked up from your local grocery store on the way to the field or w/e). Good idea to pack your own lunch though, make it something simple and healthy like an apple and a sandwich, a cheese toastie, or a cornish pasty (my favourite, since you can hold it by the edge and even if your hands are dirty it's no big deal)).

As for upgrade parts, it's really your choice, internal upgrade parts aren't prohibited for import only things like receivers and such. I prefer whichever offers the better blend of being cheaper and easier (ie. $50 and wait 6-8 weeks for delivery and get dinged $15 for duties or pay $80 and get it in your hands the same day or have it mailed to your doorstep in a week or so).

Also, don't worry about upgrading your gun at all when starting out. In fact I haven't touched my gearbox yet and it's been left the same as the day I got it (I however bought my gun used and the previous owner was a gundoc). Play with it for a bit and figure out what you want from the gun first. As well, "upgrade the player not the gun". Sure there's a minimum level of performance that you should have but don't spend money on unneeded upgrades when stock is alright. That said.... I've been taken out with a dollar store 100FPS springer pistol before but only because it was a small field and a FIBUA kind of scenario.
