Drednaught comics on I 17 an bell has a selection of airsoft stuff. VIP Gilbert and VIP Phoenix have a good shop. You can also visit Command Post Paintball. then thers tons of online stores. Just depends on how much you want to spend. $200 is a good starting budget. if you have never played before it may be good to find someone with extra gear you can borrow so you can play a bit before making the investment

You don’t have to get everything at once. Get really good eyepro. You should ate least have goggles as an option indoor fields will require a mesh face mask as well if not full face like a paintball mask. If your goggles fog you can remove the foam around the outside for air flow. Evike is a huge online store. Cyma is known for great budget aks and the G&G raider is known as a reliable starter m4. There are tons of YouTube videos so do your research. Don’t start with a sniper start with an aeg. Gloves are great hand shots hurt. Get out to an adults night game at VIP everyone’s friendly and you can try it out with other adults for a discounted price. Plus if you haven’t already got a gun you can rent one to see if an m4 or airsoft in general is tight for you.

If you want to play games that focus more towards realism, then stay away from high caps as they are not permitted at those games.

BB weight, you will find what works best for you, but don't go lighter than 0.20 grams.  The heavier you go the more stable they tend to be and you gain better brush penetration but you can sacrifice some range depending on your gun.

If you are going to be out in the forest or desert I highly suggest getting a camelbak for water (3 Liter at minimum) and a load bearing vest of some kind to keep your mags and extra gear in.


Don't be an Escalefter.
