Hey I'm New

Hows it going? My name is Justin from Florida. I'm pretty new to airsoft. I don't yet have my own gun but my play style is basically like a sniper.

I heard about the board from ANN's Youtube video and cam here to find some help about sniping.

I've been using my friends brothers DPMS from Sports Authority...I know I know it sucks. I've already chipped little pieces off the plastic "iron sights".

I've achieved "baller status" though with my first battle scar. The other day I had the tip of my lower right k9 tooth shot off by a friend while playing.

Why was my mouth open? I was calling hit and WHAM... Jesus hates me.

Anyways I'm getting my tax return soon and some of it's going to go to my first gun witch I was thinking about picking up this.

With an extra clip a light cloth face mask, and some better Eye wear...Right now I'm using a $225 pair of Oakley Sun Glasses that are flat black and wrap around for good protect. They arent made for the sport so I figured I'd get something else.

Anyways is this a wise choice for a first gun? I like the look and style of the gun. I also like M700 type guns but for some reason I'm more drawn to the L96/MK96 look.

Any Protips for me?

Thanks again.

Hey there and welcome to the forum! =)

Nice to see a new sniper sprout growing in our small yet deadly field of assassination proficiency. Be sure to think and read about being an airsoft sniper since it isn't always that great as it looks like in say movies and such. But trust me, when you get that far away head shot that couldn't be seen coming, it pays of all the crap. ;) Yet again this is a hobby/sport where everybody are supposed to have fun etc. so it depends more about what one is looking for, that they like it or not, being an airsoft sniper.

I wrote all that just because even though you can't really know what being a sniper is without trying few times with a sniper rifle on the field and the fact that clone rifles are very cheap nowadays, it still will cost ya to buy the minimum gear to do it. Things airsoft sniper needs are calmness, patience, able to camouflage him/herself and most of all be able to take good, long and accurate shots. Find these in yourself and then this type of war fits you precisely. =)

Yet even if it doesn't feel so great in the beginning, it might still pay off after trying for a while more. ;) I don't know about the rest but I get these "Why in the

Thanks for the heads up! I'll do my best to keep my grammar proper. The reason behind the G-22 is the handle.

My hands are pretty big so I figured the gap between the stock and the bolt where my thumb will go would be nice.

More Room I figure.

Are there any suggestions you have for me on guns other then the one I picked out?
