I wouldn't cheap out on boots.

The last thing I would want is sore feet at the end of the day or worse?.
The boots i have are black issued boots to the US army, and i putted some gel thing inside, feels great, but when the ground is wet, water gets inside too.

Thanks, I will order it as soon as possible!

Any place you'd think about to get some metal real or low or mid's for under 15$ each?

Oh well, I'll look for it, i like my goggles, since I can wear them over my helmet. Would you recommend Spray on or normal Cat Crap?

Well, for now, I don't know any ''Official'' fields near my place, but i've heard something about a game at a paintball field in my city, maybe they'll do more games. For now, I only know one place, and its in the backyard land of some friends i know from long time ago.(he have a really huge land, i mean we can go with the 4 wheeler on some straight trails for 30 mins, and we are still on his land. i'll try to post some pics, sathurday I'm going there. Oh, and theres no one around to sneak out and call the cops.)

Muskol is great stuff. It's acidic as all hell though. I've had it melt plastic untensils in my hands when I was out camping. I'm not sure if you want to use something like that around plastic guns. While I love muskol, I've settled for Off, just in case.

If you keep an eye on the classifieds you might find some, but it's unlikely. You want metal you're going to have to pay for it. Personally I use plastic Star mags and they serve me fine. And they're cheap enough that I don't really worry about dropping them or loosing them.

I've never used the spray on, but the normal stuff works great.

Sounds like you have Jungle Boots...they're designed for an environment that, no matter what you do, your feet are gonna get soaked anyway because you're waist-deep in a cypress swamp. They generally have drain holes to let the water out, but of course they also let water in.

I'd suggest not cheaping out on boots - once your feet are wrecked, you day is no longer fun. Buy a good set of boots from a well-known brand - Danner, Belleville, Altama, Merrell, etc.) Get some with GORETEX lining for really wet weather, and save your jungle boots for when it's hot/dry. Also, get GOOD orthotic insoles. Expect to pay upwards of $100 for a good pair of boots, and if you take care of them and don't wear them every day, they will last a very long time.

The classifieds, though you can buy them practically anywhere, they're just cheaper in the classifieds. Brand new they're usually about $70-80 for ten where you can get ten for $50, shipped in some cases, from the classifieds. All my mags, m4, ak47 and mp5 are all Star mags and I've never had a problem with them. The average price of Star mags is $5-7, perhaps alittle more for the rarer types. I wouldn't advise paying any more then that but if the price is any less then ask questions.

I'd stay away from KA mags, especially for m4/m16 they don't have a good rep.
