Calm down everyone.
One thing I've noticed is that mike does lengthy reviews. the length allows him time to make some very valid arguments. Does that mean they apply to you?
Not really. I disagree on many of his points (the sp1/g1 is one of them). But to reach my conclusion, I have used both while playing. Sure it's a great milsim gun, but a matte black ion can do the same thing. his opinion on that gun didn't convince me. does that mean he's wrong? No
It is up to you to determine what works for you! You have to put the effort out to drive to those pro-shops and hold that marker. It's tough when you are that young. but if you are dropping that kind of money and you're not willing to put in the effort to make your own opinion then we can only tell you so much.
This is good. That is good. Magfed is awesome. Pump is awesome.
You are asking MANY people. You will get MANY OPINIONS. Please take the advice you have been given. Hold some markers. Talk to the parents. see what works for
