Most of us have seen a recent wave of G&G guns in the wild and just about any out here has had an issue and died in action. For example your selector switch will snap off at just the wrong time and you're left with a dead gun for the day.

Now if you're savvy you'll have a backup so your day isn't ruined and you'll be able to take that thing home and fix it up. If it's your first gun and you poured every penny you had into buying it then you're out. You don't know how to fix it, you can't afford the parts you broke, or you can't afford to pay someone who knows how to fix it.

So you wind up in a much worse spot than the guy who paid a few hundred bucks more and had to wait another month before he could play.

You know what sucks about airsoft in Canada? I can't play until I'm 18(For some godforsaken reason only insurance companies know) and the prices. I looked at the same gun on an American site and then the same on a Canadian one. There's a literal 400 dollar difference. The gun I bought for 120 will run 300 here. The reason? Canada's weird and frustrating gun laws. Make up your mind! It's either a gun or it's not! Now I know why it's not popular. You have to spend 600 bucks for a good gun. That's a lot of money for someone who can't afford to spend that. In America a good gun might cost 250-400. A decent one 100-250. Here, 600-800 and 300-500. That's why a lot of people go clearsoft. Money. But not me. I got a JG and then upgraded the shit out of it. The same kind of gun I have know would cost me 450 easy. 120 (plus upgrades 200). 450. BIG Difference.

That is all.

Oh boy...

Complaining about not being able to play until you are 18 in regards to insurance companies is like bitching that no one wants to give you car insurance at 16.

Is it because its not an actual replica or is it because its not fully metal etc. Please go easy on me as this is my first post and I am just curious and want to hear more experienced players' opinions about G&G
I started playing airsoft at the local CQB arena. loved the game but didn't like renting equipment for 30 bucks a game and 280rounds. Since I was paying $120 every month to play anyway I figured I should buy my own equipment. or at least my own weapon. I went out and got the G&G model out of frustration and not being able to purchase here. (still not av'ed a year later) I did a lot of looking around and found that those that had them were happy with them. I gotta say I'm glad I got it 1 year of service down over 40,000 rounds through it and not one problem. At first I thought the clear lower reciever looked cheap and fake, but it hasn't affected performance. It's still my only weapon I carry into battle. And since I play strictly CQB its all I really need. Mind you I did buy a few add-ons in the past few months to improve my aim and conserve rounds. other than that its completely stock.

Now I'm planing on custom painting it something completely my own to cover up that lower reciever and no one will know the difference.

unless this was not a "start with" list

I admire your ambition. Can I also offer you some carriage returns and periods?

That's still not all of it but yaa the guns are not a start with just the gear and everything else will be to start with the starter guns i would mostly get would be the Gr16 blowback and the TSD SD96

so you say i really don't care iv heard but good things about G&G and TSD so i figure i would give em a try...plus ever since i started looking into airsoft the G&G Gr16 Blowback and the TSD SD96 were the main ones i always had my sight set on to buying and if i dont like them the most that will happen is i would buy a new AEG and have the GR16 as a wall hanger and i would be upgrading the 96 anyways
