Age verifiers purpose is to allow only adults access to the gun classifieds and area of the site with access with a/v material. If this was the case why was I able to walk into a Airsoft store, provide my ID and be AV'd on the spot. I didn't go through a interview, I'm 18+ and therefore able to buy the guns.
Who is anyone again to say what this person can and can't do with their child? He's saying the kid is a teenager and he wants to teach the kid safety, if the kid wants to play , it's his decision to let him or not. This is yet another example of how critical and impossible this community can be with handling simple things.
To get back on topic, a/v process typically takes 2-3 weeks they do it in batches from what I understand when they can, an admin will verify your details.
Hey thanks for the support. Like I said, we believe in education and awareness. That's our choice and it's whats right for our family. I understand the point to age verification but what I do/teach my kid shouldn't be part of the equation IMHO.
Regarding the age verification, I'm fine with waiting. Just wanted to make sure everything was Ok and to get an idea of what timeframe I'm looking at. I'm not here to get anyone in trouble or to point fingers, just to gather information
