yeah, if you're looking for an OK starter, look up the Kraken AK-47. It'll last you a while, until you want a really good gun (or just wait until you're AV'd)

Why would he ever pick up a Kraken if he's getting access to the Classifieds?

Check out Ken and Mach1 for some pretty good starter rifles, also there are retailers in the classifieds selling everything from cheap crapsoft to "cansoft" to higher end ones.

"Good value" is going to start around $450+. Any cheaper than that and you get into the "cheap" part.

Actually with the proliferation of "Cansoft", good value seems to be starting at $400+. I know it seems to be a lot to pay to start out but it should last you. Whereas some of the "clearsoft" (1 step above crapsoft) is pretty hit and miss. eg. Aftermath Krakens, Broxas, etc. these might last you a few seasons but still it's probably better to go with the $400 "Cansoft"

Looking to get into the sport slowly and cheeply, don't care really about quality the guns I'm looking to buy are just for target practice, if I'm going to go full bore, I need alot so want to get my feet wet first.

The problem i have is that almost every thread dealing with online vendors is "they sell crapsoft, cheapsoft" then the poster gets referred to a AV only section, or called a noob for not being AV'd.

I am just looking for some cheap rifles to get my feel for them. Looking at a few on websites, just don't know if they are reliable sources, hard to find that information, here due to most of the info being locked in AV sections.

Any hints beyond getting AV'd which I will when the AV'ers for Orillia or Barrie contact me.

Edit: for grammar and spelling
