Arrow Dextah's Introduction+ Gun selection in the future?

Hello fellow ASC members!

I'm not to foreign to this sport I actually known this sport 4 years ago but became interested again and researched last year. I am underage (14) and know what to do (wait till you're 18 and get Av'd! ) I live in Ottawa and know plenty of info and details. (because I come on this site practically everyday!) I like small and compact weapons (I don't plan on hiding under my jacket its against the law to brandish it in public!) and CQB. I heard about airsoft when I went to Philippines for a family vacation in 2008. When we stopped by my uncle and aunts place a few days before jumping on the plane home we slept on their top floor where we found a TM G17 and a M16 VN (idk which brand maybe G&P? ) in that room with no gun bags or cases! I picked up the G17 gingerly and inspected it it had all the fancy stuff TM was known for: trades and everything! I tried to pick up the m16 but it was too heavy for me ( I was 10 at the time). Later that day he showed us his SCAR-L which had a forest camo. I didn't try it because it was too loud and heavy! XD Jump forward to March 2011 where a friend of mine who is over 20 years old and he has a Classic Army M15a4 Ris Cqb , Custom DMR and a KWA 1911 MKIV PTP OD. I haven't went to his house that much ever since. I have my sights on 5 guns: ICS Sig 551, VA36C/ JG G36c, King Arms Colt M4, Classic Army P90TR Proline and a G&G MP5a4 Max to choose from. What do you think is the best? I'm waiting 3 more years (turning 15 this year) to get AV'd and my brother 2 more. I have a useless Cybergun P226 springer and a springer Crapsoft colt government which was such a waste of $$$. Anyways that was my intro to you, ASC.


Cheers,
DextahBoy

When you get AV'ed, I'm sure there will be alot more discussion for you to make.. At this point in life, talking about this topic at 14 would only make you even more want to buy it.. I suggest you wait a few more years, focus on school work then talk more about this when you're AV'ed at 18th birthday.

Personally I wanted to get into airsoft back in Grade 8 (14 years old) but I never discussed about this until now that I'm legal for this stuff. Time flies by!

But I'm buying the Colt M4A1, I'll let you know about what I feel later!

Save money now, buy King Arms M4A1 when you turn 18.

Enough for the gun, how about pants, shirt, jacket, radio, vest, extra mags, mods, scope, protection gears, shoes, side-arm and so forth....you're looking around the $1000+ mark.

There is no use in spending a lot of money in a gun you wont be able to use. In 4 years im pretty sure there is gonna be much better stuff on the market, so why would you buy something that in 4 years might be not that good.

LOL hit the nail right on the head.
The market's changed SO much in the last 4 years, what we recommend now could be total crap in 4 years. Better off just waiting and keep checking reviews.
Save up money and figure out what to buy when you turn 18

I suggest not thinking about airsoft anytime soon, it'll just drive you nuts not being able to do it for a while. for the next 4 years, go chase girls (or boys, no judgement) and come back to this when you're of age. You seem to have a good head on you though, so it might be as short as 2 years.

I tend to think more than average spoiled 14 year olds who have fantasies about pwning noobs like in COD -.- then again the imaginative side of my head thinks like that too xD

you know i remember when i found out about airsoft; I was about 14 as well; I loved guns and thought it would be cool to be in the Military. Let me tell you it did drive me crazy but after not thinking about i was fine. I even abondoned ASC for awhile. Now that my 18th Birthday is in a week i'm back here again with new interest. Like said just wait, its worth it.
