I'm not too sure about this;
I could scan an ID, phoshop it real good, print it on some cardstock; it wouldn't even look real in face-to-face but might apear good enough in a compressed video.
I'm all for making some process as painless as possible, but I think airsoft is all about commitment and dedication. Can't get to see an Age Ref, how can you think of going to a game then? And for those who'd give the "I just want one for plinking in the basement" I'd tell them to get an airgun, for various reasons.
And really, what's the point to "chairsofting" - guy is going to pay 3-800$ for a gun "meant for shooting at people" and will keep at shooting cardboard boxes? In the basement with limited range? Not so sure about that. I'm sure he'll crave for a bit more and eventually go out with the thing where he shouldn't.
I would allow this kind of process only for non-canadians (at least verified by IP, though that can be faked) who wants access to the Age Verified forums, but nothing more.
My opinion of course.
