Since you won't be able to enjoy playing airsoft until you're 18 anyways, you should ask your parents to buy yourself an airgun for now. (still need 18 to buy them)
Airguns will last you 100 times longer than airsoft, are much less expensive, and much more precise.
This way you can plink in your basement and, if allowed by your city bylaws, your backyard, and learn how to shoot properly and what not.
While you do this and wait for your 18th year, put some cash on the side and then buy a good quality airsoft gun if you still think you'd like to play.
I think this is a good advice that makes sense, you should seriously consider.
