Well, I guess you missed my point. Yes, I own real firearms. That was not so much the point...the point was that I've owned them for 17+ years.

remember this is all just "my" opinion.
If there is no way to establish a community presence in Halifax, (argueably the largest population center in the maritimes) then how are you going to attract people to drive hours away to participate in an event?

Particularly if they cannot get age verified to purchase the airsoft gun they'd need to be able to participate in said event?

I fully understand the need to vett potential participants, but when your system is now setup to effectively exclude the largest population center in the maritimes, I think there's something you need to get fixed.

And soon.

You've got 3 military personnel with almost 20 years service here....I'm pretty sure that we're responsible folks. Letting a guy who flys a helo for a living confirm that someone is over the age of majority is not a hard task.

If you're concerned about continuety in the participants, well, guess what...that's already for the most part gone.


Over to you guys.

This is a situation where "If it ain't broke don't fix it" absolutely doesn't apply. The system here in Halifax is broken. FIX IT.

Death from a bar....
