HalfHeaded I know how you feel, as I've been waiting since 2 year, and I won't be able untill next year (when i'll be 18) to participate in a event, i still believe that if you are responsible, you can use your gun out of sight, on some private land.
one wierd thing is theres alot of people under 18 who are allowed to handle real steel military rifles (like the C7A1, and I'm joining army reserve in september!), but are flamed if they touch to an Airsoft. thats non-sense?
Oh well, I can't wait to be allowed for Age Verification,
