Welcome first off.

Lets see start off by adding more info to your profile especially your age. Next start reading the FAQ section, much of the information you seek is there. As for Canadian retailers the pull down menu has some but, only 007 and A&A sell airsoft. Also find out who is your age verifier where you live and arrange to pay him/her a visit. Once your age verified, you will be able to browse the classfied sections for used equipment etc.

Before you start anything best thing to do is read the FAQ which can be found here:

http://www.ascforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=21

Step two is get age verified you need to be 18 yrs old to legal purchase or own an airsoft rifle in Canada.

Generally you want to get an AEG rifle rather than a spring rifle unless you are becoming a sniper and that generally comes further down the line with experienced players.

Does it hurt, depending on where you get shot yes it can. Can you feel it, yes unless you take one off the rifle or you are wearing a butt load of gear.

Don't know about the speedfeed, one of the more experienced guys can answer that??

Range varies from rifle to rifle, longer barrel and more fps gets you better range accuracy ect....

The only two stores for rifles at the moment in Canada are 007 airsoft and A&A airsoft if your looking to buy new but you can get used/new if you get age verified from the buy/sell section.

Welcome to airsoft. Hope that was what you were looking for.

If you find paintball to be getting too expensive, you maybe in for a horrible surprise when you see how expensive airsoft can get.

As per your inquiry though.

1.http://www.airsoftcanada.com/showthread.php?t=253
Read that, you will find details in regards to diffrent kinds of aegs, GBB's and springers. What is best, is a matter of opinion, most people use an electric based gun, AEGs essentially all work on the same concept. Gas guns are usually pistols or sniper rifles, there are a few long arms out there that are gas based but they are few and far between. As for spring guns, you will find some decent pistols and sniper rifles out there. Every item has its role and essentially what you choose should reflect your playing style.

2. You will know when you are hit.In some cases during a heavy rush fire fight you may not notice it, but the majority of the time you will. Even through a vest or jacket.

3. I Have no idea what you mean by speedfeed.

4.Ranges do vary, depending on what internals each gun has.

5. There are two online suppliers in Canada, I do not suggest ordering from outside of country. This link will shed some light on why. http://www.airsoftcanada.com/showthread.php?t=40318
The two online retailers that are available are very respectful operations, they do however get very busy, and the owners themselfves do have outside airsoft lives. So please be paitent. As for if they take COD, I do not believe so. Paypal, EMT and credit card I believe are the standard forms of payment.

Welcome to ASC and welcome to airsoft in Canada.
I would like you to take the time to read this.
http://www.airsoftcanada.com/showthread.php?t=29
It is the Canadian airsoft newbie guide.

As for this link it is this websites frequently asked questions section.
If you have any other questions, you may find the answers to them here.
http://www.airsoftcanada.com/forumdisplay.php?f=21

I have taken the time to answer your questions and supply you with the info you require. I hope you take the time to read and absorb it.

Cash on Delivery- You would place your order and pay the post office or courier when your package was delivered.

You don't have to be 18 to use the forums etc but, do need to be 18+ to play airsoft, own an airsoft gun, and to get age verified. So while you wait for that day to come when you turn 18, use that time to learn as much as possible.
