Is this a good load out?

I hate to say this but get a AEG. I have a sniper, but my m4 AEG is farrr better and can shoot further out the box. I don't use my sniper for skirmishing.

 

Snipers take a lot of money to make them viable, AEG are the way forward

Not a good load out. a 50£ sniper rifle will be useless. Not going to bother explaining for the 343537th time why sniper rifles are not for everyone.

 

Next,dont bother with spring pistols. Never ever use .12 ammo on guns.

 

I reccomend you save up for a decent starter gun,like a CYMA CM028,JG G36 or G&G CM 16 combat machine.

 

For eyepro,get decent ANZI rated goggles or a pair of high quality mesh glasses.

And if you're twelve you cannot buy a gun. Full stop.

Also, as said, (if your parents are feeling kind), they could buy you an CM028 for around £100-£130 at some websites ( http://www.landwarriorairsoft.com/acatalog/Cyma-Kalashnikov-AK47-SM120903.html#.UXWD47Ue0dI )
Although, you're gonna need it two toned from them..

Also, don't buy any stealth BB's until you get used to shooting your gun/s because you can't see them in flight. Once you have enough experience to know where your shots will end up, then you can switch to BB's your enemies won't see coming. Until then, stick to white.

 

I can personally vouch for CYMA CM .028's - they are excellent, even compared to much more expensive guns.

 

As has been said, at age 12 you have to wear full face protection. It's an insurance thing: can't have kids getting their faces permanently scarred, no matter how ugly they are to begin with :D Have a look at these.

Not sure if anyone actually checked those links, but the guns weren't high quality at all.

 

Firstly: Are you in the US? If not, why are you linking to Amazon.com? I'm you're in the UK look at websites like AirsoftWorld, Zero One Airsoft, Land Warrior Airsoft etc. they will provide you with actual "airsoft" guns instead ot the "BB" guns that you have linked.

 

1) Do not buy a $50 sniper. It will be rubbish. That thing fires 400FPS yes, but on 0.12g BBs. Never use anything less than a 0.20g BB for "Airsoft" purposes. In fact, you probably shouldn't buy a sniper at all. Go down to your local site and rent an AEG and see if you like the sport first. Then, if you really want to buy a gun, you should probably get an AEG first as this will be much more adaptable to different scenarios instead of specialising yourself a sniper early on.

 

2) If you don't buy a sniper, you don't need a scope. Use this money to buy a better primary gun.

 

3) You're not going to be getting any hits with THAT pistol. Do not buy spring pistols for Airsoft. Some CO2 gas pistols which are actually for Airsoft purposes can be had for relatively cheap (like the one in Ian's signature). Around £40.

 

4) You'll be wanting full face protection. I'm 16 and I wear goggles in conjunction with a half face mesh mask. As Ian said you don't want facial scars or even worse, teeth loss.

 

5) Never buy BBs below 0.20g. If your gun is supposed to be used with 0.12g BBs, then it isn't an Airsoft gun. 0.12g BBs have seams in them from where they have been cast, and these seams can cause the BB to shatter while inside your gun. You don't want this happening. Another point is that because they don't weigh very much, they won't be at all accurate.

 

Finally, you'll need your parents to buy you a Two-Tone weapon as you legally cannot purchase Imitation Firearms as you're under 18.
