That may be but rules are rules, not to rain on your parade dude. Anyone caught helping you out can get into lots of trouble which is why most people under the age of 18 run into a brick wall when hitting here when it comes to aquiring an airsoft gun or restricted parts. Though you may say there isn't much of a difference chronologically, you're still not 18 years old period. Sorry man.
"Hey I'm the first one to say its a great country but its a straaaaange culture. This is a place where gun store owners are given a list of stolen credit cards but not a list of CRIMINALS and MANIACS. And now they're thinking of banning toy guns...AND THEY'RE GONNA KEEP THE F**KING REAL ONES!"
