Thanks for the feed back guys!

I was talking to Matt my local AV and he said i got to wait 18 days before i can get AV so ill just spend it reading the FAQ and whatever else. One more question whats the cheapest gun used on here or new, that's AEG but very accurate and can take some punishment. If you guys can't tell me since I am not AV'ed that's understandable.

You've opened a can of worms with that question. I'll simply say personal preference. A decent "name brand" gun (not a clone) would be something like a Cansoft G&G or whatever if you're look cheap new. Used on the other hand all depends once you get AV'd and into the classifieds. I've seen (and sold) some WICKED deals there on airsoft guns!

prices change. supply changes. sit tight and wait the 18 days.

FYI, airsoft and cheap aren't 2 words that can be used in the same sentence. most times, the cheap guns are just that, cheap. they require a fair amount of parts and work to really compete on a regular basis. you get what you pay for so just decide if you want to pay once or multiple times over!

I would only like to pay once for a working gun lol for 450 bucks you could get a pretty decent one with everything like a battery wall charger. On 007 Airsoft I was looking at the G&G GR16 Combo for 350 bucks.

Battery wall chargers for the most part are garbage anyways. You clearly have no idea what's rated as good around here.

Smart charger from anywhere, online or at your local hobby store. Airsoftparts has a pretty decent $40 one, which I'm using, and it's good enough.

First rule of fight club....

We don't like to discuss the sale of guns outside restricted areas. (might be a forum rule) Check the FAQ's you were referred to earlier, it might answer a lot of questions.(like whether thats a forum rule that I should know) (I know the amount of info is overwhelming though) Also check the noobie thread for answers from people who understand new and old gen. airsoft. I have never tried a clearsoft but I held one at least once and it felt nice and looked great, not metal nice but nice....I'm babbling..Don't talk about gun sales. I'm done. Oh no I'm not, The hobby side of the sport (taking apart, upgrading guns etc) Is not one I have ever been good at so if you don't have a "knack" for tampering with things, don't! Get someone to teach you at least once. ok done.

Welcome to ASC,

This is the charger I have been using the past two seasons;
http://cgi.ebay.com/Universal-Smart-...#ht_647wt_1165

No complaints, very reliable and is simple to operate.

Thanks for respecting the age verification process, once you have access to the classifieds you will be able to see the vast availability wrt gear and AEGs.

You seem to have alot of questions, perhaps try hitting up a local game that is taking place soon? Check out the Ontario games section. Players love to show off their guns/gear and don't mind answering questions; you will learn more in a hour of "face time" than in a month of surfing the forums.

cheers

Cansoft G&G are decent although many don't like the clear bodies. Inside though they are still a "name brand" airsoft gun like the metal bodies G&G's.

But if you want something full black, look for a decent TM (Tokyo Marui) in the Classifieds within your price range.

Just be carful if you take you gun apart. My plastic lower cracked when I look out the pin above the trigger.
