New to airsoft. Charleston/Mattoon
« on: January 31, 2015, 09:05:58 pm »
Hey my name is William. I'm 23 and from the Charleston/Mattoon area.

I had always wanted to try paintball but never had the opportunity to.
I was recently up being sent a video of some airsoft action and it appealed to me much more then paintball every did.
I discovered this forum when I was looking for local players/teams nsuch.

Well, here is a tip, do allot of research into what you are buying. I for one go for function over form.

Good starter rifle G&G Raider.

Always keep in a gun cage, or the box it came in unless at the field and preparing to play.

Welcome to airsoft.

I might argue against the recommendation of a Raider, but mostly because the guy who fixes my guns doesnt like them at all.
Anyway...  Welcome to the forum, feel free to ask questions and enjoy the sport!

Thanks for the welcome guys.

And I was looking at three guns.
  • G&G MP5
  • GHK G5, GBB so probably shouldn't be my first.
  • KJW KP-07 1911 GBB

And yes I've been doing research!

I've broken more bones, traveled more miles, thrown up more beer, lost more fights, and been rejected by more dudes who look like ladies than you have.

I fix guns. I recommend ICS because I never fix them.

Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.
