Welcome to the forum. Saving up is the best way to go. Although it's also why I have a tiny budget. Be sure to read all the stickies because a lot of them have very good info on being an airsoft sniper. By the way, you said you felt your gun id lacking range. The max range you will probably ever get with an airsoft gun is a little over 300ft for your level of airsoft tech, so don't go thinking you will have much of a range advantage over other players. It's not like real life sniping where we have a ludacris amoun of range compared to other guns. We learn to do without long range, but we are always looking for ways to increase it anyway.
