Basically consider that I'm trying to tell a very mature 17 year old player why he can't play airsoft with us. I fully agree with the 18+ AV but I'm trying to see if I'm missing something and I think it's a good idea to think why exactly the age verification/restriction exists.
The biggest reason in my mind is legal responsibility. The law deems you to be legally responsible for your actions at 18 Not 17 etc etc. Bottom line is if your under 18 you can not be held responsible for your actions to the same degree as someone 18+
