905 for low money don't ask for advice on this board. All you will get is ridiculed. You should be able to pick up a kraken, like you said for $120 - $150 bucks. If you are looking for an ok, but not metal side arm you could look at something like a cf11 - co2 pistol for about $60 or some similar co2 based pistol in the $60 -$120 dollar range.

Now how satisfied you will be depends on how you want to look, and how you want to play. These may start you off ok in the sport, but you will quickly decide, if you play quite a bit, that you want something better.

At that point you may look back on what you spent and go "Dam why did I do that, I should have waited" or you may play happily for several years.

Now I expect to get majourly flamed by all the PURISTS on the board who will advise you that if your not spending at least $1000 on your stuff you should be looking for a different sport or those that tell you no advise till you are 18 and age verified.

One more thing you may get more and better advise using Google than asking here!

You really don't need a sidearm.

I bought one, and honestly, i almost never use it. Its fun for plinking, but if you seriously want to game, your money is probably better spent on mags+gear

Yeah, I should have considered it more before I dumped 500 into a gun without a lanyard attachment point.

Seriously all you really need to start is a gun Kraken is fine to start, good eye protection(Do not skimp on these), a battery and charger, and a set of boots.

Yes you heard right, low end airsoft guns give you syphilis.

Along with what everyone else said, airsoft isn't cheap. With what I have, I've dumped quite a bit already. To help encompass what that is, here's a list:

Woodland BDU. Pants, Top, Hat. About $60
CyberGun SiG552. Roughly $310 (Fuck you Forest City, you sell it for $200 now )
Molle Droplegs x2. $50 incl. shipping.
Molle dual m4 pouches x2 $50 incl. shipping.
Vest that isn't a piece of shit. $90 incl shipping
8 Mags. $175 incl. shipping

The droplegs, pouches, and vest are budget. Not "poor" budget, just I can't afford Pantac gear. They do the job, but they do have some flaws at times.

So far, $735.

247mm and 455mm TBB. $101 incl. shipping
Type 0 cylinder. $23 incl. shipping
Scope & Scope rings. $40
High speed motor (that I don't even use ffs). About $70.
Intellect 8.4v 1600mAh NiHM Battery. Another $50 roughly.
A silencer to cover the longer inner barrel. $50 on the nose.
New CNC Allwin handguards, $68 on the nose.
Metal Hop-up that I don't use because it jams all the time, $48 roughly.
Other miscellaneous shit I don't use, about $60.

None of those parts are high-end stuff. It's all fieldable, or just above fieldable.

Sitting at $1,245, give or take a few bucks since some of those numbers are just kind of rattled off with approximate shipping applied. I'm still looking at roughly another $200 or more for a SiG 552 metal body, and probably another $150 for "fieldable" (Because I know Amos will comment on it about his prometheus buggery ) mechbox rebuild with all Modify parts. So after it's all said and done, lets just call it $1,600, and I don't even have a side-arm yet. Definitely not a cheap sport, especially if you're an idiot about it. I was an idiot. Bought a SiG 552 without researching it, and now I pay buckets of money to do upgrades that for more common guns costs about 2/3 or even 1/2 the price.

If you want something that is fieldable, but not a piece of poop, I'd suggest the M4 line that G&G has. You're looking at about $400 for one, but they perform quite well right out of the box. A lot of people recommend Aftermath Krakens. I know a couple people who run a Kraken, with only minor upgrades, and they are field-worthy as a result. Krakens are only about $170-$200 depending on shipping. I'd give you a link to a retailer, but you're not age verified. Kraken's are for the budget man. You will be outperformed by some more top-end equipment, but you'll still be able to perform, and depending how skilled you are in the field, you might be able to outperform someone and their $1,500 gun.

My only advice, don't get a SiG552 unless you're a sadomasochist, rich, or stupid.

You can get a G&G M4 (CAS version) for $308. Or if you get age verified I know there are a few really excellant deal for a gun, a whole whack of mags and a vest for about $300. In short, get av'd, its free and will probably save you money in the long and short run.

Many players who have played for a year or more will probably tell you that they regret spending money and cheaping out earlier on because they just ended up with junk they should not have bought in the first place and couldn't sell. The money is best saved and put toward something else. At least $300-$400.

I rebuilt a Kraken for some poor sap who shelled out like $200+ for one and it's just a piece of junk. Krakens will shoot decentely, but the plastic reciever is so weak, it cracked and I had to hold the lower and upper reciever together for him with hockey tape. The bolt cover spring was so weak, it doesn't stay closed. The battery that comes with it is the worst, a 1200mah Ni-Cad large battery. The whole thing just feels incredibly cheap but I've known people to paint Krakens and they feel a bit better. I'd replace that clear plastic reciever right away and the clear plastic mag. That material is prone to cracking.

I'm probably gonna get flamed to hell and back for this... but

MP7 ... it's outdoorable... it's indoorable.. and when you save up for a better bigger shinier expensive gun... it's a sidearm

or.. the 3shot crossman shotgun... it's just so much fun..

Yep, Getting the minimum gear for hockey is way more then the minimum for airsoft. Get a kraken and some bdu's and your set.

unless your talking about the TM MP7 then I disagree... I've tried the Well Mp7 and... I am not impressed... My cheapo CO2 backup pistol is way beter as a primary.
And the TM MP7 is WAY outta this dudes price range.
