i need some help!

Hi i have been looking into geting into airsoft for some time now for the simple fact that im tired of paying 160$ for a case of paint and then puting up with rich kids not playing with any form of houner. Now i have 3 questions 1Is there a good store in the barie or collingwood area(i prefer to go to stores than order) 2 What brand should i go for ( Iwas thining a CA m14 or an m16or evan a g36k) and 3 are there any local clubs that meet regularly. Any help would be apreciated thanks.

Please, before you get flamed go read the FAQS...

Welcome to ASC btw, there is a wealth of knowledge if you use the search button. Many people have come before you asking almost the exact same questions...

No problem, aslong as you don't ask a question thats been asked before, and you don't talk bout doing anything illegal or stupid. Believe me, ASC can be quite friendly.

Airsoft is very expensive in the begining, and the rules are tight.

You should be 18+, in some rare cases 16+ for some games.
Airsoft cannot be imported.
As said, airsoft is expensive. (~$300+ for a gun let alone mags, gear, etc..)
There is 2 full going retailers in Canada,
->Shootsoft.ca
->007airsoft.com
Also, getting age verified will work you wonders.
The FAQS will give you all your answers.

well im curently 16 and soon 17 the gear isint a problem as i have tones of surplus gear and vests to ware. From reading around i have noticed a strong dislike to younger players wanting to get started and as to this i asure you that i would be geting my father to buy the AUG for me and i have been around guns since i was 5. as for treating the sport respectfuly i have been fully trained with the real m16 (was in cadets) and respect the dangers involved with these real lookng airsoft guns and wouldent endanger the future of the sport So in your responces i ask that you treat my questions with the same respect i will show you and the sport

You chose about the worst time possible to try and get in the sport.

Right now pretty much the only way to get guns right now would be to get age verified, which you can't do, and browse the classifieds.

Getting guns while being a minor will get you flamed.

You're best bet would be to though out the last year you have to wait and pile your money. You will need at least 600$ to buy the basic gear, 1000$ to have a decent setup, 1500$+ for the cool stuff.

Good luck, but wait.
