How does it feel to have worse grammar and sentence structure than a 12 year old?
Anyways, go with a spring action gun, but make sure you get something upgrade compatible like a VSR-10, APS2, L96, etc, or else there will be very little setting you apart from everybody with an upgraded AEG. If you like the role and are willing to dedicate yourself to it, having an upgradeable gun will let you go the extra mile. Otherwise you are just another kid with a spring gun who is completely useless on the field.
Just be warned, upgrading a bolt on the cheap (which you REALLY shouldn't do) could go as low as $300. I just dropped about $500 on a BAR-10 (VSR-10 compatible) platform and I don't even have all the parts I need. And considering how in all likely hood this money is coming from your parents, you may just plain not have the ability to build a bolt.
My suggestion to you is to learn the game more, get comfortable with your AEG, learn tactics and how to maneuver, then move on to what you want to do. It's a big nooby mistake to just jump into sniping, as a lot of people don't have the patience for it or just find they don't like it. Airsoft is a whole different game then the real world, so don't think that real world sniping is anything like airsoft sniping. Yes they are similar, and yes they share a lot in common, but when you boil it down, you are shooting a Chinese made plastic pellet with pretty much a crude air compressor. There is only so much your gun can do, meaning YOU have to compensate for the rest.
