I've also got an event coming up October 11th at Hell Survivors in Pinckney if you wanna give it a try up there. We've got just over 180 acres of playable field, so there are plenty of great spots to hide for a good ambush or two.
Most of the people on these boards will gladly let you try out there stuff if you're at an event with them. Its what I did when I was first starting out, and it definitely helped me make some great decisions on what to buy. (It simultaneously fueled my need to spend a couple thousand $'s too, but hey, it was fun).
If you ever see me at a game and want to try out what I'm running, I'd be more than willing to let you have a round with it. I'm sure most of the people around here would do the same if you ask nicely .

Thanks Puma and Netmarine. I'm quite a WWII nut and began researching Airsoft AEGs a couple of months ago. I've also been to a couple of WWII reproduction web sites to get a load out together. Currently I have a M1 Garand (I attached a scope to it), a Thompson submachine gun and an Elite Force 1911 A1 GBB. I sure hope I didn't put the cart before the horse! Thanks again for your input. It's reassuring to know there are people - like yourselves - with character.
