Help a noob?

Currently waiting to get age verified but I am having a real tough time deciding on what gun to buy. I can't really go by feel due to lack of stores in my area (London,Ont.) As for type of player? When I was into paintball I played all styles. Sometimes hanging back, sometimes running to front.
I like the "look" of MP5, and some form of an M4. I see most Canadian websites sell CAS guns, are these any good? Is there upgrade capabilities? I am sure once I start I will be wanting more fire power.
Thanks in advanced for any help.

One thing you could do is check the events posting area of this website and see if you can make it out to a game to chat with other players, now it may not be the same as going to a store and checking out guns but I'm sure if you ask nicely players will be more than willing to let you hold and shoulder their AEGSsto get a feel.

Here is some info on CAS and G&G

In the future please make an attempt to be more specific when choosing a thread title.

Take a read through THIS. I wrote it a little while back with the new player in mind.

Best of luck,

Velocity Arms has some pretty good clear guns (the new custom VA line) however once AV'ed the classifieds are your friend.

MP5 or M4 you can't go wrong however the M4 is probably more "versatile" in that you have a plethora of accessories and configurations (M16, M4, CQB, SPR, etc.).

In addition AK style guns aren't bad for starter guns either since they're pretty common and easy to find replacement parts for.

I would say if you played paintball before then go with the style of play you like however since you play "every style" I guess pick whichever you like more. The mechanics behind all airsoft guns are pretty much the same so one isn't really better than another, all you need to think is that it's basically all the same motor and piston between different brands with a different shell outside (this isn't *true* since you have different versions of gearboxes but it's easier to think of it this way).

Velocity Arms

Yes, can't wait to get into classifieds. Funny you should mention Velocity Arms. I was looking at their VK416 Carbine, looks pretty decent and it's upgradeable. Any thoughts?

If you're getting AV'd, just wait. Then you can get a much better gun than a G&G, and a full black one at that, from the classifieds.
