My first gun was a KWC M9 springer I bought in 1997. Just bought as a showpiece. Had no idea there was a game of airsoft at the time. I had been an air gun collector in the past, and this looked MUCH better than any pellet gun I had till then. And waw

Jump ahead to fall 2007. I was still clueless about the existance of this sport. But I saw a Double Eagle AK47 at the local army surplus store. Had to have it. Then discovered the sport.

So at that point, I wanted to get involved. My first 3 guns (got them all within a couple of days of each other) were a TM M4A1, CA M15A4 rifle, and KJW M9.

The M4 was junk, TM or not. Didn't last a week before shit started breaking. Never saw a single game... Basically scrapped it and used a few of the parts to build another gun - a C8A3. The CA became my main gaming gun... Still is to this day. The KJW M9 also is still going strong and has been with me for many games....

My first AEG was, and only some oldtimers might remember this one, an Academy L85, followed by an Academy MP5. Traded them both in for a TM M4 back in 2000.

My first airsoft gun was a MP5 PDW. Pretty good starter gun, but then I wanted something better, lol.
My first GBB was a TM Desert Eagle. Man that was a sweet gun.

My first gun was bought off craigslist before i knew the sport existed was a TM 733, the guy had two for sale that one and a cheap m4 (cant remember the brand but it was black but it was a cheapie) I really wanted the cheap one since it was only 200$, the TM was 350, way more than i really wanted to spend.(still awesome deal back in 2007) The guy informed me that the cheap one was sold, i took the plunge and got the good AEG without knowing about TM's. Probably one of the best decisions in my airsoft career!

G&G UMP in 2004 or 2005. It was awesome. I don't like big weapons, so it was a good fit for me. I also loved the construction of the body. I traded it away later and have regretted it ever since.

Moved on to a JG HK416 that I was afraid would suck, but it was actually awesome. The plastic body was a little cheap looking, but the gun performed well and I really liked everything else about it. Ended up selling it when I didn't go out and use it for awhile and needed some spending money. The person who has it now has painted it and it looks great.

I now have two Cansoft guns, as you can see in my sig.
