Well first of all Merry Christmas to all. I am making a comeback to airsoft. My last time I stepped on the field all geared up was back in '05(ASH Hawaii). Since that time I've enlisted and now stationed near St. Louis. Trying to get back in the game. Airsoft has evolved sooooo much since. TM was the shiznet and Lonex just did parts. We had no dedicated field only CQB arenas. Now there's full blown Milsim! I'm looking for a good m4 system. My local pb shop has g&g raider and ARES M4A1. I leaning twards ARES but heard not to good of reviews of late. But then on the magical infomation hwy called google and credit to airsoft society and airsoft mechanics, I am headed in the direction to this http://clandestineairsoft.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=48&products_id=310. What do you think? good investment to get back in? Also, i need a sidearm... every one needs a sidearm. I sold my TM MK23 SOCOM at the time of need of money to support my family along with my M4 and loadout. So in replace of an lost of beloved sidearm i'm looking into this http://kwausa.com/products/gbb/hk-mk23-ussocom/. Again, input please. I won't be investing for another couple of months. I have the money but don't at the same time, I have some other family investment to deal with first. Also, TAX RETURNS will be around that time! No need for Negative Nancy's or Debbie Downers, everyone has there own oppinion, there will always be "this is better than that" debate, and i don't need to thumb throw that crap when it's not relevant. Thanks for your time, much is appreciated. Also I want to thank SilentVectorX for the Lonex review and youtube video.
