Your thoughts on CQB rifle and beginners

Hey everybody I am new here, I have recently played airsoft a lot of times and love it. I have been renting guns so far but would like to get into the hobby. I made this choice du to the games realism, gameplay, friendly community where I live and the ability to customize your gun for your style of play.

I have been looking for a airsoft gun to use in CQB, sadly I am to young to be age verified so I have been looking for decent guns that are sold in Canada and I have come across this gun:
http://www.shootsoft.ca/clearsoft/pr...roducts_id=213
Most of you guys may be thinking that that is lots of money for a gun for a beginner, I just do not mind investing the money for a gun that will last me four or more years.

The other gun I might get would be this one:
http://buyairsoft.ca/catalog/product...roducts_id=439
As you can see I like the M4's with plenty of space for attachments.

Just while I was writing this thread I buyairsoft.ca just updated their G&G series and I found this gun:
http://buyairsoft.ca/catalog/product...roducts_id=457
Have not had plenty of time to think about it but it seems to have pretty mush everything the G&G M4 has, just a smaller model, better for CQB. It has plenty of space for attachments and a decent range, adjustable hop up reinforced gearbox, blow back (nice and cool looking) the only problem I have with this gun is it is not TM compatible, will this affect how much I can upgrade it, if so by how much? It seems that G&G has plenty of options for upgrading so I should still be able to upgrade it I assume. Also there does not seem to be a rail on the top, is there anywhere that I could buy one for a scope?

My first question is which gun to get? I like both of them a lot, they good from reviews I have read. My problem with the first gun is the gearbox going to get wrecked with the fps? I assume no since it the fps is not too high but just would like to know. Another problem with the first is when I am old enough to play outdoor (all the clubs you have to be 16 to play, I am only 14 ) will I be able to upgrade the gun to higher FPS with springs or another method. I would also like to know if I can get a rail to go on the side of the barrel for the first to attach a laser or flash light? I would also like to know the approximate range for both at 350-360 fps? For the second gun I would like to know how hard it would be to upgrade it? It is TM compatible but I do not know if you have to be age verified to order parts for a airsoft gun. I would also like to get a fairly nice red dot sight, I have read that they are better than scopes due to their wider view range and that you do not really need a scope for CQB (figured that out myself ). I would like to also purchase a flashlight and laser I found this one, it is pretty cheap so I bet the laser is not very powerful.
http://buyairsoft.ca/catalog/product...roducts_id=230
I was wondering if there is any other 2 in 1 laser and flashlight that would be useful?

Another thing that concerns me is eye protection, all the googles I have found are 80-100$, although I would pay for them I would like it if there was any other ballistics googles that are a bit cheaper?

Thanks in advance for any help/helpful comments or criticism on my choices for equipment.

All are good buys, though that laser light thing is shit. Though, many players and forum members on this site are strongly against anybody under the age of 18 owning guns and in ontario it is actually illegal to own one if you are under 18.

Sorry kid, but you're missing the point. AV isn't just for Airsoft Canada, but it is something followed by most Canadian retailers. We're not going to give you advice on how to get a gun or which gun to get, because that basically defeats the point of preventing minors from acquiring airsoft guns.

Is having a proper pair of working eyeballs for the rest of your life worth saving a couple of bucks?
