Yet, oddly enough, it didn't.

Now, if you don't mind, you're contradicting theyguy's post by being a dick.

Sure sounds like it. Could just be me, but the post came off harsh. Then, it's hard to tell how things are meant to sound when it's just type. I just things like this are completely unnecessary:

Airsoft isn't a sport I take seriously (by which I mean, not a sport I would spend loads of my spare time in), but I don't think it's necessary to degrade to insults like this.

It's not the hit, it's all the cleaning up afterwards. And I hate to Hell to have neon pink splatter on my cammies, vest, and gun.

Ofcourse we don't like getting hit by paintballs. We're airsofters! We like the little white hard balls

I don't want paint smegma all over my radio or my optics..

EDIT: my sentiment exaclty, tex.

my attitude was only in reaction to your posts, not the other way around, sorry about confusing you with speedball, which is truly gay, but next time you'll make more friends on an airsoft forum by keeping those comments to yourself

as far as research, it's been well established that full black guns are legal to own but illegal to import, the whole "not for civilians" thing is BS so don't worry about that, and really if you are responsible enough to own an airsoft gun, then it's really in your best interest to get AV'd the prices are way better in the classifieds and the guns are nice and BLACK or Metal so it's up to you

as a matter of fact, I JUST this weekend bought a TM Hi-capa, I won't discuss price outside of the AV area but trust me it was a way better deal than anything on that site, and it came with a Metal slide too

I'm a leftie; it was really cool to have a giant blob right smack in the middle of my field of vision. Not that I could actually aim or anything, what with the mask in the way of getting a cheek weld... not to mention the 20oz air tank stuck to the grip of my gun (I used an X7 with G36 front and M4 stock for one whole season of woodsball, until I saw the light of airsoft, and lo, it was good...).

First of all, Hes being honest, we hate to be harsh, but we also expect people to do a little reading before they come here. Also, you seem to have already made up your mind before you posted, why bother? We told you what you didn't want to hear, so you ignored us.

As for airsoft not being a sport? Get over it. I certainly don't think that ballroom dancing should be in the olympics, but i wouldn't go on a dancing fourm, ask about what pair of shoes to buy, then tell them that it wasn't a real sport....

External air rigs aren't so bad. You play with a sling, right? You can just run it along your sling, and have a pouch for it on your MOLLE compatible rig.

I wouldn't mind playing with an Escort HK416.... ooooh baby.

I'll keep that in mind. Sorry, I do realize I can be sarcastic.

I've done alot of research, especially here. The laws about owning and importing are well documented, but I couldn't find a single place to buy a full metal gun which abided by those laws. This is the first time I've been able to find one.

And hold on a second...007airsoft is situated in Canada. It's legal to own the guns if they import them, so why do you suppose they won't sell them? Maybe I should send them an e-mail tomorrow...

And yea...hoppers are annoying. I've been thinking of selling my X7 for a rap4 just for that reason, a friend has one, it's a tank. .68 calibre paitnballs, same as a regular gun, but no visible tank and no hopper. Only thing that's stopping me is the horror stories about rap's customer service.
