Ankle-rolling is one of the biggest dangers in airsoft... I personally have extremely weak little girl ankles, so I wear braces on them under my boots, but good ankle support is absolutely required.

If you roll your ankle bad enough it could take you out of airsoft for an entire season.

I don't plan on cheaping out on the kneepads, I have been eyeing a nice set at the surplus shop, military knee pads, same kind our special ops guys use, and some military house wives use out in the garden

My mom also has a shed in her backyard which I am going to see if I can use that as my little work shop and I think I might want to invest in a chronographer....possibly later on down the road...

Hmmmm..I like the silencer idea...Would having a silencer attached affect the shooting anyhow? Like would there be any change in the distance of the bb's being shot?

No, no effect except muffling the muzzle report a bit.

get a flash hider, or just paint the one that comes with the gun. I personally don't like the idea of making the gun longer just for looks .

Nope not at all, in fact some people hide longer inner barrels INSIDE silencers.

Yes go for a good charger, ie. "DuraTrax ICE" charger. Go to an RC shop, they'll be able to tell you everything you need to know about chargers and batteries and in most cases sell you a charger for cheaper than an airsoft store will sell it to you for (beware for them blowing smoke up your ass sometimes though cause I've found some people will do that, find a guy who is knowledgeable and doesn't bullshit).

Also most of the noise doesn't come out of the flash hider, in fact the noise comes from the motor and receiver area because of all the moving parts and such.

Also in the case of mags, you'll probably end up buying twice anyways since you might drop some mags and never find them again. If you do invest in quality metal mags though what you should do is take a can of sky blue, pink, safety oragne, whatever spray paint and paint the top 1/4 or 1/3 of the mag for easy identification in case you do drop them so it's a bit easier to find.

Hmmmmm...Thats a good idea with the spray paint..The mag I got with my gun is a Metal Hi-cap Mag, those are the kind I want..I like them
