It doesn't hurt to ask at 17, some may allow you others may not but at least your name gets out there and people know that you actually stayed the course and waited which gives you slightly more credibility.
Don't get a springer especially a sniper rifle unless you have played "stock class" paintball before (closest analogy I can get, either that or woodsball as a sniper with a pump action or something like that) or are actually willing to put a lot of effort, time, and money into becoming better and upgrading your stuff. It doesn't mean that you can't run a stock sniper rifle, it just means that you have to be smarter about your shots and engagement distance since you'll have the same range/accuracy/projectile speed but a slower rate of fire (basically how fast you can pull the bolt back to recock the rifle).
