Call me Seth. Im 16 as of last Saturday and 2 weeks ago me and my friends got into airsoft. We are a small group but we are dedicated. So far im the only member in the group who has even raised the money to buy a gun for airsoft. I ordered it last week on Thursday and it should be here soon. The moment we started I wanted to be the sniper of the group. Two of my friends also want to be snipers. My family owns 100 acres of land here in Texas and alot is woodland. So you can only guess where all of our wars take place
I have always been really good at hiding and makeing myself unnoticable to other players. Currently I don't have a good sidearm but I plan to get one soon if I decide I need it.

Well its great to be here and I hope some of you vets can maybe hook up with me sometime so we can maybe get together for a few rounds or share battle tactics.

Welcome to the forum! Nice intro post. Thank you for following the rules here. You are off to a very good start.

I see you are looking into a sidearm possibly. I typically do not use one, mainly due to the weather conditions affecting my gbb's performance during the colder months. With that said, I have played without one before. Its has its pros and cons. Pros being, you are slightly more mobile, and do not have to worry about possibly having it fall out of its holster. Also, you do not have to carry around spare mags for the pistol as well, which again, helps increase mobility.

However, some of the cons: MED is a factor. Depending how hot your primary is shooting, you may not want to engage people at a certain distance. I have had times where I have been taken out at close range when I had a easy shot on the target. I did not have my pistol, and refused to shoot the player from the small distance with my primary due to its fps output. This resulted in the player being able to take me out with ease.

So there are a few things to look at when deciding whether to get a sidearm or not. In the end, its up to you, and greatly depends on how you play, where you play, etc.
