What's the Point of a GBB?

Really, what are the advantages? Of course, yeah, it looks cool and the authenticity is nice to a degree, but at that point the practical differences end. Buying a pistol with blowback seems like a good way to pay more for something that you really don't need to pay much money for. Are there any correlations between gas blowback and performance? Do the mechanics just have this tendency to be really high quality? Or is it just coolness and vanity that people are looking for when they get one?

NBB pistols are were most players start out. They are cheaper and tend to have large capacity magazines. This is usually true for most of the gear and guns. As you begin to play you start to see the guys that have spent a good amount of money on their gear and guns and they usually seem to be having lots of fun. As their level of realism, both in practical terms and in their imaginations increases they have even more fun. I've seen guys running around with $4k of gear and a couple K in weapons and shook my head, but now I'm beginning to understand, and appriciate the appeal that better and more realistic items brings.

Its all a matter of taste. And those usually refine with age!
