I remember when you couldn't buy "anything" quality for under $500 - $800 to get started, and new players used to complain about that when they asked. Now you can buy a reliable "starter" that will still need some tuning/upgrading for $300 - $500, and we still hear things like, "isn't there a kick ass gun for under $100 - $200?" ....and they still get their knickers in a twist.

Go to an international website and you'll see the same thing.

Folks in the US complaining that $75 is rip off for a pistol at Airsoft GI or people in the UK complaining that Red Wolf Hong Kong AEGs are overpriced and so on.

It's human nature (unfortunately).

Well I must say as a newb and having gone through all 15 pages of this post I have learnt a great deal. I have a photography hobby and most of the problems here are the same on the photography forums. Thanks to all the experienced players that give your advice, can't wait to meet you out at an event.
Quick question, I was planning to go to ultimate airsoft to try it out this weekend but my real interest lies in outdoor gameplay. Would the cqb give a good introduction? Mainly I was considering it to be able to rent as I decide on my kit

You will probably find that CQB is the perfect introductory primer. Starting outdoors, if you are not aggressive you may find yourself hanging back a bit, making it difficult to "test the waters", get shot, and confirm a kill or two. In CQB, you are forced to be more aggressive, like or not... you're going to eventually have a toe to toe fight. CQB just speeds that whole process up, and erases any illusions of fear a new player may have about wanting to see what it's like to get "lit up" at close range.

Agreed, cqb will get you right into the heat of battle and is really fast paced, it does sting a bit more then outdoors for the most part just protect your face mainly teeth) and you should have a blast.
I preffer outdoors but cqb is fun at times as well.
If you dont enjoy indoors dont get discouraged befor you try outdoors it is a bit of a "different animal" so to speak.
Also keep an eye on the events when yoiu see an outdoor game youd like to go to just post tentative asking if someone has a rental/loaner gun im sure youll find that someone will have one to loan/rent you then you can chec out all the guns and ask questions to decide what youd like to buy.
Welcome to ASC hope to see you on the field soon.

thanks to both for the great feedback, I really appreciate it. Never thought of the CQB as a way to get "thrown in the deep end" and get over the potential fear of getting lit up

I actually had a model that was VERY accurate, went something like this;
Conditions specific to arsenal that make you not play oudoors;
-having two or more pistols
-having a fully upgraded pistol
-having more than 4 guns of any kind
-having 3 or more PTWs
-having an older rifle with custom made wood kit

Don't worry; airsoft has no "deep end".

Starting out in airsoft is the most enjoyable phase of things. There's just sooooo much stuff to be had. Every game should smack a big smile on your face or you're doing it wrong. You will be scared shitless about how much money you're dumping into this "let's play war with toys" hobby. Just get out, meet the local guys and play!!! (budget $2000 for everything...spread it out over the first couple of seasons to ease the pain)

The next phase is when you start to fine tune your stuff, your "needs" and what type of games you prefer. This phase gets very expensive too....lots of "keeping up with the Jones" and chasing that last FPS or meter of range. You spend A LOT of time reading/posting to the forum. Keeping a level head is key.

The 3rd phase is when you're really picky about what type of games you want to play...you tend to think the new guys are idiots, the older guys that came before you were right and you wonder why-the-f*ck you have so many bins of gear/guns. You tend to be very selective about buying only this or that piece of kit...and you really have to justify/rationalize why this particular jacket is so necessary and better than the other 7 jackets you have (which are in very good shape since they haven't been worn much....LOL).

There's 2 camps in the fourth phase. One camp where guys go mental and continue to buy room fulls of gear, guns...they spend endless hours chasing one specific combat smock that has a certain make/brand of a buckle placed in the same spot as that Navy SEAL who was in that picture standing on that rock (and similar guys in that same camp will know exactly what picture and what rock he's talking about). The other camp is where guys sell off pretty much everything and keep a minimum of stuff specifically setup for its purpose. One/two guns, 1 CQB setup, 1 green setup, etc... Need a SAW or a bolt action gun + gear for the next OP/mission/game?...they'll just buy what they need and then sell it afterwards.

That's kind if where I'm at. I've got a very nice, specifically tuned, primary load out, but not much else.

We were doing up a kit list for our guys, and after some shopping we found that you can outfit a guy head to toe in real steel, quality military gear from boots to boonie. that includes BDUs, plate carrier, pouches, holster, etc, etc, etc. This list also includes all safety gear from water bladders, to ranger blankets, to dead lights, to a radio and headset, etc, etc. that's no replica gear, no low quality stuff, etc. Really everything you'd need for a 24 hour game with proper and quality gear for about $1000.00.

That does not include weaponry, magazines, accessories, batteries, etc. but still, that's not bad considering what it can cost.

That's the real reason the Credit card POS terminals got switched to Chip Insert over the swipe.
The tortured screaming of the over abused payment Card is muffled by the pinpad.
