Yes, airsoft is cool and if you are even considering playing then I’m sure you would love it. You get to use reasonable looking weapons and the mil-sim (military simulation) situations very funny. But in order to join an airsoft game, or perhaps twiddle around in your backyard, you need something: a gun.

That brings up the question, what is the best airsoft gun for a beginner? Well, there is not any definitive answer since we all differ. But I will try to give some pointers and ideas for choosing a gun, and then I will give some personal tips that will work for most people. Gun range Dallas

First of all you need to arranged a budget. Airsoft guns range from $5 all the way to 500 usd, so choose wisely. But keep in mind that cheap guns will not work as well and could break very quickly. Try to get the best you can afford. 

Secondly, think of your playing style. If you think you would be more considering long range airsoft combats, get a sniper rifle or an computerized electric gun (AEG) with good range. If you are more of a gung-ho person, then get a good AEG that is more suited to close quarters combat.

Speed is another factor. There are 3 types of airsoft weapons: spring powered, gas powered, and electric. Spring guns are nice but must be cocked before each shot so they may be too slow to be effective at close range against gas and electric weapons that can be fired on full-auto.

There are tons of weapons available so take a peek around, but here are some of my personal thoughts. For a sidearm I would recommend either the UTG M3 shotgun ($40) or maybe the UHC 1911 handgun ($20). They are both reliable weapons and are both spring driven and cheap.

For a main weapon I would recommend a Jing Gongo G36C or M4. These are generally excellent weapons which may have many metal parts and can be upgraded and have accessories. They are electric rifles, so they can fire fast and hard and work great in any situation. They may have hi-capacity magazines that store around 300 BB’s which means you refuses to worry much about ammo. They are also only around $120, which may sound like a great deal for some…. but these are great weapons that you won’t need to worry about replacing for better guns later on.
