Going to be an airsoft gun

At around 7 o clock i will be purchasing my first AEG. I already know what it is. I am having some doubts about buying so can you guys convince me why I should get an AEG? Win me over to the airsoft community

If you are having doubts, then don't buy one. Only buy if and when you are sure that it is a 'good purchase' for you. What we think, is entirely irrelevant.

+1 for that.

This sport is all about what you like and what feels right to you. The feelings and advise from people here while helpful means nothing at the end of the day if the gun you end up getting dosent feel right to you.

My advise is to try a few different types of guns and judge from there.

As far as AEG vs GBB goes. That depends on how and when you play. GBB are great fun but there shit in the winter. AEG works well all year round but you have to deal with electrical issues. Six in one a half dozen in the other.

Bottom line. How and when you play will be a big factor in which gun you pick.

Hope that helps.

What I am worried is that once I buy it, I will outgrow the game and then I will be stuck with a $250 AEG. Could I sell it on Kijiji or something if I do not like the gun, or is that illegal?

Yes, you can resell the gun, in strict legal terms, to anyone over the age of 18, in any venue that will allow it's sale.

I thnk the bigger question that you need to ask, is if you are having doubts about $250.00, which is basically the rock-bottom pricing level as far as quality airsoft guns go in Canada, is are you going to be able to justify buying everything else related to Airsoft? Proper safety gear alone, is going to run you another couple hundred (gloves, boots, eye/face protection, hydration etc), game related gear (basic rig and BDU's) another couple hundred, things to make the rifle actually useful (batteries, magazines, magazine pouches, etc), ongoing maintenance of the rifle (ALL airsoft rifles have their bad mechanical days).. etc.

The airsoft rifle itself, is just the tip of the iceberg as far as airsoft expenses go. If you haven't the budget/haven't the stomach to stick with it from the get-go, don't bother.

The above bolded statement makes me snicker a bit, considering that general consensus is that this is an Adult hobby. A more accurate wording would be I will find that out this isn't like COD and get bored of the game.
