Just don't buy that Can'tire crap
As already said you WON'T have fun with it, especially when you'll realize you'll have wasted 70$+tx after it has broken (because it WILL break, and sooner than later)

I'll had my voice to the others and add this: Get a job, gather at least 400$ so you can buy a decent gun + battery + charger and next year or so you'll be set and good to play at games.

The other ONLY option would be to buy a Crosman pellet gun and shoot targets with it, if you absolutely want to mess around shooting things.

As a new player I'll let you know what I was able to buy for $100.

-set of MP5 mags, set of used G36 mags, used (damaged) G36 top rail
or
-used cheapo vest, two used BDUs
or
-one trip to the gun doc
or
-batteries and charger
or
-ten packs of BBs
or
-four days of admission at Flag Raiders
or
-gas money for three games (one was far away)
or
-a cheapo shotty that broke after a few weeks
or
-food for about 5-7 games
or
-one time raping by UPS brokerage fees
or
-1/5 of my first AEG
or
-tightbore, hop-up chamber + bucking
or
-one G36 drum mag
or
-paintball goggles, facemask and hydration
or
-Contour HD camcorder (on sale)
or
-printer, paper and ink to make resumes, get a job and earn a real airsoft budget


Personally, I'd choose the last one. I suggest you go to a game and rent a gun to see if you like airsoft. There's no point buying into a sport/hobby if you don't end up liking it.


Edit: Everyone beat me to it. I need to stop taking so long to type.

$100 bucks gets you a pack of bbs a day pass and a rental with lunch and dinner after.. that is about it.

Lets see if I can make this clear:

YOU CAN NOT BUY AN AIRSOFT GUN FOR $100. THEY DO NOT EXIST.

If your intent is to plink in your basement, then just about anything will suffice. However, if your budget of $100 up front is with the intent to go out and play at games, then put it toward a good set of eye protection. Nothing beats having your own solid set of eye pro. Then just rent and play as you can afford it.

$100 bucks? I have a hammer on a pistol that costs around that.
