The TM G36c is probubly a better option for starting out, though CA has made pretty excellent steps forward as far as reliability out of the box goes, While a CA gun would probubly treat you right TM still rules out over all.I plan to get a Classic Army G36C for my main gun. It seems like you are mostly recommending TM, is there some advantage over the CA weapon?
a G36C is an excellent choice for best of all worlds, while they all perform mostly identicly out of the box range/rof wise the ergonomics of he g36 will perofrm just fine for both ranged and close engagments.My local Airsoft shop has an indoor CQB arena. Would the G36C be a good choice for this situation?
usually, but sticking with something local you can actually physicly venture to always is handy if its an optionI'll probably end up buying online. Are most of the online shops pretty honest?
depends on scenario and the level of play you intend to get into, just like project mayhem, you decide your own level of involvment in airsoft. if you dotn want to sim a particular nation/military then dont, and sometimes in someplaces you may get put on a particular side accordingly. sometimes though this is the exception you are required to wear a particular uniform color or even style of gear, but again these are the exceptions and not the rule.BTW do I need to worry about matching my gear to a particular country's military? I was talking to a friend about going to a big event where they were doing a blackhawk down scenario. He said that because his gear wasn't authentic US military he had to be part of the Arab forces. Is this "reinactment" type policy normal in Airsoft?
hope any of that helps
