Hey Cyanide, just to add a bit of background here:
I traveled 45 minutes - 1 hour one way (public transport) just to get age verified.
I showed up with nothing but my passport and the clothes I was wearing, and guess what? The guys that were playing that they basically showered me in guns and gear to use for the day.
I know it might seem not worth it to you to drive 20 minutes just to get AV'ed, but trust me, it IS worth it.
Additionally, most people here are flaming you because you think a 20 minute car ride is out of bounds. Many here, myself included travel twice that to play every weekend, and that is one way, mind you.
