New To Airsoft!:)

Just like to say hi to everyone...my names andrew..obviously, im just getting into airsoft. I bought an airsoft gun from walmart months ago and thought it was interesting and now i just ordered a m4a1 carbin and im going to upgrade it and hopefully have the chance to come out one time and get in a game with you guys

Just one question..

If i really want to get into airsoft, what should i look into buying..the gun is pretty good its not plastic most of its metal..but internals an exterior..shoots about 350fps if i member correctly...should i get a camo outfit or anythign?

All suggestions are appreciated.

First fill out your profile so you can meet local players. Since you left out your age most clubs require players to be over 18. other than that pick up a set of BDUs, some good eye protection, and some extra mags and a way to carry them (vest ect.). A good pair of boots prevents twisted ankles too.

Hey Andrew,
Where did you order your M4 from, and which one did you order? Did it arrive yet?

BDU = Battle Dress Uniform. It's your camo shirt and pants. Don't cheap out on your goggles, better to buy a nice pair up front then the go through a few crappy pairs first. I might love CADPAT, but if it's ACU/MARPAT/Woodland/3 or 6 Desert you want, it's all US and shouldn't be hard to find.

Dude, ArmyIssue sells pants.

Orange tip? Unless you are buying from out of country you shouldn't need to worry about an orange tip. Altogether you shouldn't need to worry about an orange tip because you shouldn't be buying from out of country and if you are, you won't need to worry about the orange tip because you'll never have to use it..or get to use it...

Orange tips are a US law, not Canadian.

BDU's are your camo. your probably gonna want a U.S woodland or MARPAT.

I hope you didn't order your gun from the states or it's going to get seized at the boarder.

There are only three sure fire ways of getting guns in country:
http://www.007airsoft.com/
http://aasurplus.ca/disclaimer.html
The classifieds on this site. Anything else is a risk. In your case especially, since you don't know what you're buying, you might get stiffed by a "top of the line" AEG which is crap in reality.

Buy from trusted sources.

Anyway, Andrew. You should make it a point to go over the FAQ and just re-read the parts on importing airsoft. Your seller assuming all the risk is kinda sketchy, but believe you me, you avoid a lot of worry, panic and hassle by just buying from a Canadian retailer or buying used or NIB on the forums here.

I actually find it interesting that you continued on after experiencing the crapsoft from Wal Mart.

I havent paid for the gun yet, hes ordering it first...hes got two ak-47's right now for sale so he must be able to get them over the border somehow. Alot of people i know have done it.

As for the website,
http://aasurplus.ca/disclaimer.html

Would i be able to order right from this site? Or do i have to have some sort of liecence for this cause it said somethign about training/movies.
