i whored myself out to guns a while back... literally had a new one every weekend.. but that phase blew over quickly (once a certain loved one looked at our joint bank account XD) and now i have one AR which i can use in either sniper, assault or cqb modes with just a set of allen keys and 5 minutes. i think it's better to just have one versitile (sp?) gun. muuuuch nicer on the bank too...

Tell me about it. I'd been collecting air guns since I was 15 or 16. When I finished college in 1997, I had over 50 of them. Unfortunately, I didn't find work for many months after I finished school, and had to sell them off, since they were the only things (other than my guitars - which I would never part with) that were worth anything. I ended up selling the whole collection, including some now rare models like the Crosman 16 and Uzi models.

A couple of years ago, I got bitten by the bug and bought up a Crosman 357 with the 4 and 8" barrels (I used to have the 6" model before) and a Crosman 1008. That satisfied me for a while.

The urge to buy guns and rebuild my collection again started a couple of months ago when I saw an airsoft AK47 at a local army surplus store and HAD to have it. And so it started again. I've bought a lot of I figured as of today I'd have everything I needed and still I ended up putting a down payment on the chrome WE M92FS in the classifies... Ugh.. this shit is gonna break me.

Umarex have some awesome guns. I currently have the Walther PPK/S, Beretta Px4 Storm, and Beretta Cx4 Storm, and will be getting the Walther CP99 Compact next, and eventually their Desert Eagle too. I'm really liking the blowback action on these guns, as they give a nice recoil and feel more real. I'm loving all of these new guns.

I saw the "non LTD" black version of the S&W revolver at our local shop. Very nice gun indeed. The only thing I really don't like about it is the "real" cylinder that holds the pellets stands out so much, particularly on that chrome gun.

Dude, switch your gun love to either real guns or airsoft guns.


If you like target shooting and or killing people; switch to real guns.

If you like target shooting and or hitting people; switch to airsoft.

I just don't see where BB guns lay as they are not realistic and shooting each other with them hurts a bit more...

Airsoft is my new bitch. I have to complete my collection of blowback pellet & BB guns with these 2 last pieces. Once I have them, I'll consider my collection complete for now. These particular guns that I have are VERY realistic, and that's why I bought them. Otherwise, I wouldn't bother with them.

So far for airsoft, I have a KJW M92FS, a TM M4A1, and CA M15A4 rifle. I'll have a chrome WA M92FS on the way next week. Plus I have the DE AK47 that started my interest in airsoft.

So yeah, airsoft is what I want to focus on now my and build my collection from a MUCH better selection of much more realistic weapons. And as much as I enjoy target shooting with my pellet guns, the idea of being able to shoot SOMEONE with airsoft in an organized game is very appealing to me. I tried paintball once. I liked the idea of the game, but the guns and the paint were just a turnoff for me. And it felt more like playing a frantic real-life version of Counterstrike than an actual tactical scenario or real skirmish. From what I've seen on youtube of airsoft games (the real things, not kids in their backyards), it appears to be something I would enjoy.

As for real guns, I have my POL and own a 1950s .22 rifle and a 1917 Lee Enfield .303. The thing is that I live in the city, and have no place to shoot them. I could probably easily get my PAL and buy some rifles, but have no use for them since I don't hunt. I'd love to get handguns, but again the process of getting licences, registrations, etc is just too much effort for the payoff. Especially when there's airsoft! I can get guns that look real AND I get to shoot people with them.

Yup I shook the Warcrack habit and thought hmm a hobby that may get me into shape and fun. Played paintball many many years ago but, did not want to go back, so I thought why not airsoft. Wow now the addiction bug has bitten me again!.

It's like having sexual intercourse with your wallet. Always sticking your fingers inside and taking money out!
