Dont ever buy a spring gun, total waste of money. The only place I will buy any airsoft stuff is at www.redwolfairsoft.com; it comes direct to your door from Hong Kong so youre eliminating the middle man that you would normally pay too much for too little here stateside. For GBB (gas blowback) pistols, I recommend Western Arms over anything else, and for the AEG\'s theyre all pretty much on par with each other, if its compatible with Tokyo Marui or Systema parts then its good to go. My guns were all set to run around 320 fps which was the legal indoor limit at the place I played in Hawaii, although my Western Arms P14-45 Prokiller would shoot in excess of 450 FPS with red gas. 320 fps will break skin through a t shirt, I recommend a good paintball mask and gloves (mechanics gloves work) if youre gonna do any skirmishing with anybody.
