Where do you plan on playing?

Knowing where you are going to play is a huge factor in the gun you are going to purchase. Do some research on the fields you plan on playing at. Each field will have different rules and layouts. Choosing a gun that meets the fields FPS gives you an edge over others who donít! This does not mean that you wonít be able to compete. If you want to play at different fields. One of the fields has a 350 FPS limit and another has a 400 FPS limit. Choose a gun that shoots 350 FPS and you will be able to take the gun to both fields.

What gun do you like the most?

The gun model you love the most should be your first pick. However, there might be some flaws to that thought. I do whole heartedly agree that you should pick the gun that you love, but there are some things you should consider when you are ready to buy. The first thing you should look for is the practicality of the gun. Being your first gun, you want to have the fire power to keep up with the competition. An AEG is honestly the best way to go for your first gun. Some of you may have your eyes out for a bolt action sniper rifle, but please reconsider. For your first airsoft gun, having Semi-Auto and Full Auto capabilities will greatly increase your fighting capabilities and chances of shooting someone. Not saying that you wonít be able to shoot with the bolt action sniper rifle. I just want you to know that there is a bit of a learning curve. My go to pick will be an M4 variant, but there is a plethora of other models like the AK47/AK74 available for you to choose from!
