I believe the same should apply to Airsoft.

Now, keep in mind. I have yet to play a single game. With that said, I can't argue the game related points. However, I strongly feel it is our responsibility (those of us who do have kids) to show them the proper way as a few you mentioned prior. This website is a fountain of knowledge when it comes the sport. And I thank my lucky stars for finding it! With that said, would it not be possible to throw out the proper instructional information for the under age kids that do wish to take part in the sport. (I'm sure this topic has been covered from head to toe).

Just a Father's 2 cents.

Wildcard mentioned me so now I figure I should comment.

Yes RARE exceptional cases are made, some other long standing and respected host have also allowed for these situations as well (not naming names to spare them the endless flood of PMs from minors that would follow).


As a father here are my two cents.

As a parent it is my "duty/obligation/responsibility to raise my children in accordance with the right moral tools, so when they come of age they can be properly integrated into our society".

Not any other kids but my own....

those other kids belong to their parents. The kid wants to play in one of my games that allows the 16+ with parent PLAYING, then come on out and have some fun and make sure you live up to your "duty/obligation/responsibility to raise my children in accordance with the right moral tools, so when they come of age they can be properly integrated into our society" for behaving properly within our community.


If I wanted to baby sit while the parent phucked off somewhere, then you would need to be offering a substantial amount of money to take on your obligations and liabilities.


Kids...nothing against you. But if I felt like playing games with kids I would have stayed home with mine, but sometimes mom and dad just need to get away from you little buggers for a few hours every month or so. Be happy that when I post up the 16+ with parent PLAYING I am even doing that, becuase there is nothing in the airsoft rule book that says I am obligated to amuse you.
