I personally believe if you are old enough to drive a 1/2 tonne vehicle at 120km/hr. you can shoot airsoft.
BUT I also feel an 8 y/o should have the same rights to play. Maybe not in the same group...
In MB we have airsofters and than we have Cuddy's commandos
They are an all age group. Run by adults. With waivers etc. And do an amazing job of it.
At the same time I don't thin just anyone should host all age events.
From what these Comox Valler Airsofers are doing... morons.
