The max i can spend is about 60-70 dollars for primary.

Im wondering several thing:

Do you even, or should you even ENTER the airsoft market at that price?

Do Sniper rifles come at that price?

Where is it legal to use Airsoft rifles in Canada?

I know that you cant just walk around with a gun on your back, fake or not, so where could i actually use it? im new to firearms so i havent had much experiance when it comes to the legality of them or where they can be used.

Any help is appreciated.

I'm sorry to say that I don't really have much good news for you in regards to your inquiry.

As it stands for your budget and due to the fact of your age, airsoft is not really in an achievable position for you at this time. As it stands even the lowest quality bolt action rifles are already five to six times out of your price range. Also due to the fact that you reside in Ontario, provincial law states that you require to be a minimum age of of 18 before you can even purchase an airsoft, pellet or BB gun.

As for safe venues of play when it comes to airsoft. The majority of players enjoy game play at local paintball fields in their respective areas. There are certain instances where members have created their own private facilities and playing fields that are safe and far from that of public view.

If you are interested in precision shooting I suggest that you speak to your parents about the topic. Perhaps they or a relative would be able start looking into this hobby with you together. As it stands shoot real steal rifles is thousands of times funner and have exceedingly more accuracy and range than an airsoft rifle could ever hope to achieve.
