New Hobby-Need Inside Advice

Post by jason1977 » Thu Aug 25, 2016 5:17 pm

Ok folks. I know asking for advice from a web forum is like picking which star (after the north star) shines the brightest but I’m a gonna ask all the same.

I found a new hobby. Air soft. I have done paintball so the way I see it, Air soft is the same but different ammo. After that…I do not know jack about it. I did get a chance to play a game at a location about 30 minutes from my casa and there is an even closer location that I could walk to if the need was there. So what is my question? What gun should I get to start? Money is not really pouring out my ears so getting some $500 pew pew device is not an option. Several online stores, NO PLUGS PLEASE (Btown Rules), offer so called starter kits for around $200. These kits offer a gun, mask/goggles, ammo, battery/charger and some other doo dads. I am afraid, however, that these starter kits are gonna fall apart after some use. These online stores also offer mystery boxes where for a flat rate, you get something from just over your price to some insane deal worth a lot more. One site has this list below:

This list has the guns name, MSRP and odds of getting. The MSRP on all of these guns (exception is the SWMP9 Listed last) exceeds the purchase price of one box. So, to those of you with knowledge of the hobby, any reason why I should not buy a chance at any of these guns?

Thanks,

Jason
