    Nah, don't get anything from a local store, unless its an airsoft specific type place.

    Keep in mind that you need to purchase gas (green gas) and BB's, which should run about 15-20 bucks more for both items. All of those guns should shoot about 300ish fps, probably more. The guns with either the F or the C designation are fully auto and semi. If you get one of those, make sure you only switch firing modes while the slide is locked back.

    A gas gun, such as the ones I provided links to, run just like real guns. They chamber rounds when the slide cycles, and the slide will lock after the last round. The gas is charged into the magazine, the magazine inserted into the gun, etc. You know the deal. When you're charging the mag with gas (the charging hole should be on the bottom of the mag) MAKE SURE YOU PUT THE GAS IN UPSIDE DOWN. As in, hold both the mag and the gas canister upside down, so the liquid in the can goes into the mag, not the actual gas part.

    If you have any other questions, let me know.

  3. oh gawd!(drooling)i think i found a new hobby,and a toy or 2.thanks powasky!how many shots do you get per gas tube?do you just put the gas to the mag and let it fill up,like a co 2 canister or what?the links you provided,those were semi auto or full?i dont think they were labeled on the site

    Ah sorry for not replying for so long, man. The gas doesn't come in little canisters like co2 does. Gas comes in a big can. You push the nozzle into the nozzle on the bottom of the magazine, and the gas is transferred from the can to the magazine.

    Only two of those guns are still on sale, the USP compact and the G17.

    Like i said earlier, in the glock series, any gun that has a "c" or an "f" at the end of the name (eg. g26c and g23f) are fully auto and semi auto.

    If trying to keep the $$$ to a minimum, check out ebay under the search prompt-"airsoft" -or you could opt for real authentic/original airsoft makers such as: classic army, tokyo marui, kwa and such. You may notice that better ones cost a lot, but last much more longer for entertainment. Enjoy;z
