I haven't a clue

    Tom_tarbucket, the other thing you might like to try before shelling out your money is to just ask around on an airsoft site.

    Airsofters are well known for showing off their guns in the safe zone, in fact if you ask anyone to show you something and point out its pros and cons you're more likely to get too much info than too little :)

    There's a tiny chance you'll meet a snooty person who forgets s/he was once a beginner too, but they're very rare. Don't let that stop you asking. And, like a lot of other things in life, always ask before you touch.

    Some AEGs are very reliable (the Jing Gong G36 was/is legendary) and if you start with one of those, perhaps secondhand, you can always sell it on if you decide you prefer something else.

    Have a look in the Airsoft Questions subforum, you'll find that most of your questions have been answered there. Your second stop is at a site, to get firsthand info, and maybe a trial of one or two guns you like - there's not much point in buying something in a shop and then finding that it doesn't really fit you. Then go to any of the reputable retailers mentioned earlier.

    The only body parts you really need to protect are your teeth & eyes. Teeth are expensive to fix. Eyes are irreplaceable. Don't skimp on eye protection.

    Good luck, and welcome to airsoft.

    PS: Dogwatch has a Tokyo Marui (premium brand) electric MP7, and swears by it.
