Hi, my name is Payton. I'm the manager of Airsoft Hero located in the historic district of Hampden in Baltimore, Maryland. And I'm Joshua Meyer. I'm the tech here at Airsoft Hero. Our store features AEGs, accessories, apparel. We also buy used guns, accessories and apparel and we also do quality tech work. Any details you can find on our website at And we'll be talking to you about airsoft. The best way to choose a sniper rifle is going to depend on the environment you're going to be in, primarily, with the sniper rifle. If you're going to be in a more urban environment, or even a small field, that's very close. You know,where people are always very close together. You're not going to want something as large as the Barrett over here on my left. You're gonna want something smaller, like this M21 EBR over here on the right, around 14 AVRs depending on what you're familiar with. The guns are both upgradeable, just the same. So it doesn't matter, actually, which platform you choose, as far as its performance. It's just depending on what type of environment you're going to be in. If you're in a larger field, you're definitely gonna want something larger, like this. Or maybe even just something a little bit bigger than the AVR over here. Another thing is the role that you want to play. If you're going to be stricly a sniper, then you're going to want something that is only going to fire semi automatic. If you're going to be more of a designated marksmen, you're going to want something that's going to also fire fully automatic, not just semi automatic. So then, you are not limited to only being a sniper. But you can make the necessary long range shots that other people would not be able to make.
