It honestly just looks like you took a bunch of guns you thought looked cool and made them into a list.

There's no way you have experience with all of these and your recommendations are hardly justified.

I began doubting it when neither of the 'cqb' shotguns were trishots or sub-400fps...

Edit: ....and most of the pistols are WE and KWA....nopenopenope

I agree with infidel and marine. I mean, for pistols you left out kjw, Tokyo marui, maruzen/marushin, ect. and you didn't have a single tri-shot shotgun. The two you recommended are over 400 fps. I can't think of a single cqb place that allows 400 fps guns. You really could of done better.

OP, no offense, but this list is more biased than correct. Looking at your pistols, it's easy to see that some closed-minded simply told you that KWA makes the best pistol and anything else is subpar to their performance. I glanced at your rifles, then noticed a continuous trend. I thought it would get better in the end, but it got much much much worse with your selection of DMRs and sniper rifles, to which you made zero reference to upgrading or modification, which is needed 90% of the time with both.

The long-short of it, I would usually correct your title by saying you mean "newb", but after going through your list, no correction is needed [refer to my sig].
This is far from a good list. This is more on the lines of a list of cool looking guns that Evike sales made by someone who's simply partial to Evike. Gotta expand your horizons, educate yourself on all things, and learn what makes a gun good, great, and excellent.
And please don't take this as a bashing, but more on the lines of me wanting to break down your seemingly belief that good guns look cool so we as a forum and people can properly educate you on what actually makes up a good gun so you don't continue to fall to the path of wrong or invalid information.

Yeah, I can see what your saying,
(I did call some of them eye candy) also im not in any way supported by evike, however, I am a supporter of evike. So far they have had the best service per price. Airsoft gi follows closely.
I would've expanded on the pistols, but there's just too many good ones by we-tech. I had spent about 2hrs making this and I would've spent a lot more if I had listed all of them. So I just mentioned a few pistols that I own or have used or have seen used on the field. (Those KWA's)

Evike literally has thousands of guns.
So to make things easier. I listed guns I know would be good. (This was to shorten the amount of time it would take to make the list.

I can only think of three items on that list i haven't shot, seen shot, or been shot by, on that list.
The MSR.
And both CQR guns on 200+ for CQB/C

This "article" seems biased because I am listing guns I know are good.
Also made sure every gun I listed had a full metal gearbox.
Please note I never said that if the gun wasn't on the list then it wasn't good. I was just simply guiding a newer player I. A good direction.
Rather than describe what a good gun is, just show them a what a bunch of good guns look like.

So being shot by a gun means you know all about it and would recommend it?

You mainly ignored our points here and seem to think our argument is that you're missing guns. The major argument is that you're
A.) Mislabeling guns, your DMR section just has random AEGs that semi look like DMRs but are hardly DMRs.
B.) Included a lot of guns that I personally don't understand, what makes you think that the CA sr25 isn't better than the G&G sr25? And if you agree then why is the G&G sr25 on this list?

Also, shooting a gun, being shot by, and seeing a gun being shot does not make you a fit expert on the gun.

Just by you saying "I made sure every gun I listed had a full metal gearbox" makes me suspect you're not quite as experienced as you'd like to seem.
Also, just curious, why do you think a GBB 500+ dollar gun would be a good investment for a newer player >>

If you're trying to say something you may want to say it as oppose to just muttering insults at I don't even know who.

You actually have something useful to contribute or just your usual crap?

OP, delete WE from your list of pistols as a whole.
