Wanted to thank you for your duty!
Back to business. Depending on how much you want to spend will be a large deciding factor in your purchase. Use a lot, hold a lot, shoot a lot and ask a lot lol. Unless you go to a field with a bunch of stuck up f***ers, everyone (mostly) should have no problem showing off gear and letting you shoot a few rounds through them.
Like people have already said, not MUCH has changed.... but enough to make a difference. Now'a'days (just like in the past) most of your decisions will be based off of what you use and how you like the feel for it. Rarely do you find one High-end marker that is waaaaaay better than the rest of the market.
Hope this helps!
