    Im some what new to airsofting and a few of my friends said certain stuff cant fit me as far as guns and everything else. I am 6ft. 4inches tall and about 248pounds. What would be your suggested loadout?

    I'm sure most vest will fit you, but I would go for a chest rig of some sort. Google HSGI and go to there website, they have a great chest rig. And as for a gun, just a regular gun of your choice I guess, or you could go for a support type kit

    What kind of of gun would you suggest? I dont a gun that is small. I currently have an AEG m4a1 and it is not reliable constantly having to wind the clip and even then ive had to use it upside down just so it fires correctly

    If I were you I'd get an M16. What's your budget?

    $800 or $80? If $80, you can't really get anything other than spring shotguns.

    $800 is correct, with a budget such as that what do you recomend ? Im not really interested in AEG because of the clip constantly needing to be rewinded

    *Magazine, and you can always get mid caps, those hold between 50-150 rounds and do not require winding.

    For $800 I'd get a Tokyo Marui and a metal body, that's just me.

    I'd say get a VFC. They're amazing and you can and you can use the extra money to upgrade it to make it even better.

    800$? Lol. Get anything you want. I'd say a VFC m4, SCAR, AK, 416, ect. Any gun that's VFC, just not any VFC GBBs.

    I agree with the VFC choice. Maybe their 416? As for the winding issue just pick up a box of 7 MAG midcaps for $55, they don't need to be wound up but they hold only usually 100-130 rounds.

    $800 you say?

    VFC 416 $440
    or
    VFC M4 E series $300+

    MAG brand M4 midcaps, 7 for $55

    FLYYE plate carrier of some sort. Plate carriers are superior to chest rigs unless you want quick movement. A good place to get FLYYE gear is on
    www.shootercbgear.com

    Pantac is also good for gear. www.airsoftsmith.com I think is a good place to get some.

    With $800 you can be set with a great AEG and a great load out.

    Also, on your winding problem, there are two solutions: 1) get midcaps. Most people like midcaps anyway, they don't require any winding at all, but hold less.
    2) flash mags. Flash mags are like your hi-caps, you have I wind them, but it's a lot quicker. There's a string you pull That pretty much winds it for you. Yank it a few times and you're good to go. It hold just as much ammo (sometimes more) than your standard hi-cap.

    If you are looking for different types of camo in large sizes. RAP4 paintball has a ton of different camo in all sizes. I was able to find my Flecktarn in xxxl!

    I'm 6' 4" and around 280 lbs.

    I run Propper cammo in 3XL (I get it new from a local surplus store).

    https://www.epropper.com/categoryattribute/49

    As for guns and such, I run everything from Scorpion AEPs to an RPK and most anything in between.

    I also have a Condor chest rig that I added side panels to. I preffer to run it lower than most people run chest rigs, but it works for me. I'll try to snap some pics tonight or tomorrow.

    I've electric heard that drum mags jam all the time. I use mid-caps and I highly recommend them

    Drum and box mags in anything other than an LMG are n00b indicators... I have one and I hate it. Get midcaps or flash mags.
