Im not new to airsoft, ive been playing for 4 years, but only backyard type games, but i figure this is a newbie question. Where is the closest ACTUALL airsoft store, not walmart or dunhams,but a ligit one for airsoft?
You may be out of luck. I'm not too familiar with any stores up in your area. At best, you'd have to travel to metro Detroit to find the closest actual stores that sell legit airsoft guns. Your best bet might be to buy online.

TCP North in Traverse City always has about 10 different G&G combat machine models on hand any given day. They're usually priced in the 180-230$ range. They also carry some NBBs and GBB pistols, king arms BBs, and other tid-bits. I think that's as close to a real airsoft store your going to find up north here.
I think I remember Ogre making mention about a G&G retailer down near West Branch also; but you'd have to ask him about that.

You could check out my sales thread too. I've got to liquidate some stuff
Also, You have a good Military Surplus store just south of Gaylord, down towards Grayling. Link: www.pineviewsurplus.com/recon-photos.html They appear to be located at 7328 Old 27 N Frederic, MI 49733 (989) 348-8300
I've talked (emailed) with a recent customer who said they had a good selection of gear for sale, as you can see in their "recon" photo gallery As far as camo, gear, boots and the like go, that's your place.
Good luck. Also, as Cats pointed out, TCP does have some guns up for sale. Nice catch.

They're pretty good. Lots of actual surplus stuff unlike many stores; though mostly miscellaneous things from the 80s-90s. They usually have good prices on stuff though. I picked up a like-new multicam Massif Army combat shirt from them this summer for $25. Their uniforms are really the only stock that seems to rotate out frequently. The owners are quiet folk but seem like decent people. If anyone is passing through up north, it's completely worth getting off the expressway to check them out.
[EDIT]: they're also only 10-15mins north of Camp Grayling/Air Force Base.
