Thinking about getting a first gun??

So I'm thinking about ordering up a Aftermath Steyr AUG A2 as a first gun but i'm still having second thoughts because I would like to maybe learn to swap internals. so I'm wondering if i should go with a more popular M4, M16 or just stick with the AUG. personally if you had to choose between a AUG,Aftermath Kirenex Police AEG or a Game face M4 style gun (Doesn't actually tell you what the hell it is all it says is "Game Face Professional Grade Air Soft Rifle") which one would you choose? :-?

I would try to get AV'd first if you havent already and then get access to all the classifieds on here. From there you can see that you have lots of high quality option for first guns.

If you plan on tinkering with your gun you may want to consider the M4 platform due to there being a plethora of after market support for it.

An AUG would be neat because they are not as common as most guns. Maybe you can consider a G36 platform as well.

Yeah i want the AUG because it is a less common gun and i think would be fun for a while until it starts to fall apart on me and ill be scrambling to find out how to repair and make it better in the process im personally just deciding either to go with a common gun and easy to maintain or have a less common gun harder to maintain. As for the AV'd im pretty damn sure im too young

OK so I think I've made a final choice because i want a really good gun over the unknown I'm going to look at getting the Colt M4-A1 (King Arms) which i have a good feeling wont fail me.

I would never buy any of those. Seriously.... if you want a really really good M4 for about the same price as the crapcrapgamefacePOScrapcrap (seriously its a piece of MOFOin shit)
get a King Arms M4A1 Carbine or try out the WE M4 I haven't heard much about the WE AEG M4 but what little I have heard its not bad.

Yeah, wait until you're 18 to play. Your life will be a lot easier and you'll have access to the classifieds and other retailers. Don't worry, Airsoft isn't going anywhere. As for those choices, if you bring any clear guns to the field and you're under 18 most people are going to look down on you. It'll be an uphill battle to be taken seriously. If you lack the patience to wait then at least go with the KA M4.

Naw its all sorted out BDU and the gun, Looked down on or not I love Airsoft every time I get the chance to play I play. Plus in my opinion the faster I get started the more things I can accumulate and more learning experiences I can be exposed to but thanks for your input. It's the fact that people will look down on me that makes me want to do it more, It's when people are underrated that they look even better.

Spoken like a true kidiot.

Remember: you won't be a minor all your life, but you can be ostracized from the airsoft community for the rest of your life.

Unless you enjoy playing by yourself then go for it.
