    You can get a regular Green Gas/Propane pistol and get Co2 mags for it. Like the KJW M9 is one I know of that has co2 mags available.

    Umm, I believe so, not sure though.
    There may be co2 mags for the KSC, KWA, or WE Glocks.

    If you really have no budget then get a KWA, I know that mags are a little pricy but you get a high quality gun that is better than KJW and WE.

    Green gas is a combination of propane and silicone oil. So, if you want to, you can use propane it's MUCH cheaper than green gas or co2.

    Walmart, for 2-3$. Alls you need after that is silicone oil and a propane adapter. On Evike you can buy a propane adapter kit for 20$ which includes the adapter, silicone, and few other little things. Just make sure you get a plastic adapter and not a metal one.

    A metal one will wear down the o-rings in the mags when you put gas into them. Plastic doesn't as bad.

    Co2:
    Pros
    1: can be bought at any Walmart.
    2: Isn't affect by weather as much as green gas/propane.
    3: usually FPS is more powerful when using co2.

    Cons:
    1: expensive in comparison to green gas/propane.
    2: usually fires to powerful for field limits.
    3: fires dry, green gas/propane has silicone added to it meaning it can lube your gun as it fires. (this doesn't mean you don't need to clean it.)
    4: adds more wear and tear on pistols than necessary, since 90% of pistols are designed for green gas.

    Propane/green gas.

    Pros:
    1: can be bought at Walmart.
    2: cheap in comparison to co2.
    3: pretty consistent.
    4: FPS is usually around 300-350 meaning it usually within field limits.

    Cons:
    1: affected by weather quite a bit.
    2: propane can smell pretty bad if you didn't add the right amount of silicone to the mix.
    3: lower FPS, but some guns do have parts that can adjust the FPS.

    (I may have missed a couple, so if someone knows any I missed or got wrong, jump in please.)

    Sure, what's your budget for the side arm first?
