I haven't ever owned a pistol before, but I am seeing it as needed more and more often. I like the idea of AEP so I don't have to deal with gas, but I decided on the gas for a more realistic feel as I want to utilize the new pistol to match my current Real Steel M&P .40 for training purposes. Price range: 100-150 (not including accessories, plan on 2nd mag + propane adapter, drop leg holster) Models: M&P*, M9, G19, etc. Usage: room clearing, practice, CQB, backup, etc. I was originally considering waiting until I have the money/birthday present and getting the TM GBB M&P to be identical. However, I saw this deal: KWA ATP NS2 $116 w/ gas & bb's I'm curious if I should just spring for that as it's probably close enough; I read the reviews on the KWA, but nothing on reliability/longevity which is a large concern for myself.
