don't get that sig! (if it is the spring one anyway, it will brake!!!)
Airsoft has a huge
range of different quilties of guns and different ranges and accuracies. I would definatly say that, if you have about $500 or $600 you can defiantly get a airsoft gun that is more powerfull/hurts alot more then a paintball gun. there are several types of airsoft guns:
Spring - you can get a decent spring hand gun
for about $15-$30. these usually shoot around 200 feet per second and they use the light .12g ammo (not very accurate). they arnt that great if your gonna get into arisoft much. jsut good for fucking around everyonce and a while or for basement wars.
then there are spring airsoft rifels. I used to have one of these and it served me quite well (i might get another one becuase it is good to have 2 guns...). there one that is the most common that is decent is the UHC/HFC mp5(here is the link to the hfc one. it is a little less powerfull then the ufc but it has pump action)
. these will run ya $50. they are much better and if your gonna get at all in the least bit serous, i would highly suggest one of these. if you dont want to spend that much money, are willing to take good care of your gun, and want somthing better then a pistol, get a HFC bull pup
the bull pup is a little less durable so you have to take good care of it, but other then that it is about par to the Mp5s. another option is the hardballed shotgun. i dont have a link for that one but do a search on google is your really interested. the hardballe has probably the best build qualidy bit is a little less powerfull. you can also get a sniper which is the most accurate airsoft rifel i have ever seen! my friend has it, it is the super nine
.you have to cock spring guns each time you fire! decent spring rifels liek the ones i listed shoot 300+ feet per second exept for the Super nine which claims to shoot around 400 (i think it is closer to 360 or so myself)
then there are gas airsoft guns
. these can be alot more powerfull (my glock
is 320 feet per second). gas guns are wither semi aurt (one bullet fires every time you pull the trigger) or fully auto or both. my glock is semi (i didnt want to spend the extra money for fully and i dont need to waste ammo so...) some gas guns are blow back. this means that the slide 'blows back' every time you pull the trigger! this is really awsome and this is what my gun has. you can get a good (non-blobback) HFC USP
gas gun for $40. that gun will do ya fine. it is what all my firends have. you might want to look into getting a second clip though becuase it only holds 13 rounds. (i like mine, the mag is fully metal and it holds 23!). if you want to spend the money you can get a really kickass fully metal gas gun. the one thing about gas guns is that you have to now keep buying not only the bbs but also the gas. it really isnt too expensive for gas ($12 for enough to last ya 3000 rounds and you usually use 200-500 rounds per game).
the last kind of airsoft guns are Automatic Electric Guns (AEGs)
these are kick ass kick ass kick ass! but they will cost ya atleast $300 once shipping is calculated! the most well known manufacturer and the best (unless your gonna spend over $1000) is Tokyo Marui. You can get all sorts of assault rifle models in AEG form from around the world. I really wnat one of these but if i get one my firends would never play with me becuase it would suck for them and also becuase i dont want to spend that much so im not ging to get one. you can also get hi capacity mags for these that hold 300-500 rounds and you can get drum clips that hold 2000. these guns also have alot of upgrade potential. a stock AEG is around 280 fps but if you spend say $20 you can get up to 350 feet per secons and if you spend more you can probably get some to go to 500 fps! (ouch!). it is aloways a good thing to see where you are ordering from. the linked website i gave is based in asia. shipping is alot more then for a place in the us but still the overall price is cheaper. the only thing is waiting for it to shipp and also very rairly, customs will sieze items such as airsoft guns.
DO NOT BUY A GUN OFF E-BAY UNLESS YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT IT IS AND WHAT COMPANY MAKES IT! IF THINGS ARE TOO CHEAP DONT GET THEM!!!! THERE ARE ALOT OF SHITTY BUILD QUALITY AIRSOFT GUNS OUT THERE AND NOT ALL OF THEM ARE CHEAP EITHER. YOUR BEST BET WOULD BE JUST TO TALK TO ME. OR YOU CAN GO TO biodegratable airsoft bbs!
and no they are not harmfull in any way to your gun! they are however more expensive. that link is a good place to buy normal bbs in bulk too.
well, hope that helps
