If you want to prove to your parents your maturity, then do what they want to. I am currently doing the samething. I knew about this sport a while back, I believe when I was around 7(way too young). So I waited, its only been last year that I have signed up to this forum because my father encouraged me to learn all the basics so I would be ahead of the game when I turn 18. The funny part he got interested in airsoft and he bought a couple of guns, so we(its not only me now its we) are really to rock and roll when I turn 18 so we can show up to games together.
Just incase you skimmed it, the point was to wait.
