I've been into airsoft for over 5 years and am finally building my own gun (SR-25 modded M4). I'm in south central PA a few mile north of the Maryland line. We have a small group of airsofters that get together and skirmish every couple of months. Everyone in our group has a different level of experience, from people still using spring pistols, to the hardcore running $500+ AEGs or GBB.
I collect all of my favorite guns in airsoft form so I have a nice small armory (some people say I have too many lol).
