Hello I'm from Pembrokeshire and although I'm more looking at target shooting cans, I just like reading forums anyway, I do have a question, this may be a bit cliche but which gun am I better off with? a DE M56 tri shot or a SRC M4 dragon?

Welcome to the forums!

Well, if you're looking for a gun just to shoot cans with, I wouldn't spend a lot, look at springer pistols or those single shot shotgun, then you can spend the rest on... Well, whatever, lol.

But out of those two, The M4.

Welcome to the forums, mate!

 

Of those two, difficult to say... those shotties have a pretty good rep for cheap guns, but you'd best get someone who has actually had one, and for a while too's, opinion. I can't say I've ever heard anyone raving on about SRC M4's, they're better known for their G36's, but it also depends on what generation of SRC's manufacture it is: Gen 1 are fucking useless, Gen 2 need upgrades to be skirmishable for a good long while, Gen 3 are very good.

 

If you're thinking that, after a while plinking in your garden, you might want to check out a skirmish, then the M4 would probably be better than the shottie, but then again, you may be better renting a gun than taking something crap for your first taste of the sport, so you don't get put off.

 

Just a bit of general advice: any website with bbguns in the url should be avoided, such as justbbguns, onlybbguns, etc.. They're much of a muchness and known for selling dud guns, terrible customer service, and making exaggerated claims and/or telling downright lies about their guns for sale. Have a look in the "Places To Buy" section here and you'll find plenty of reputable retailers.

onlybbguns is bad. They called a G36 a sniper rifle. Granted, they have a few good brands, but they know nothing and use big words to lure in kids and their parent's money

+1 Ian. That was another thing I noticed but forgot to mention. See? They're not exactly cheap, are they?

The 'Pro Guns' section actually has a few decent guns, and some at a fair price, but they can be bought for about the same price and better at more reliable retailers. Also, I +1 to better retailers. A few are: Zeroone Airsoft, Airsoft World, and Action Hobbies (For Two Tone guns).

I'm probably better off with a shotgun anyway. Although question is now.....Single or tri shot

Just been looking on AW, they have a spring m4, licensed by Colt, pretty nice
