The mature thing to do is to wait three years. Period.

You have more chances of finding a unicorn than a brick and mortar airsoft retail store.

Depends on the province. I'm not familiar with BC laws, but it's not out of the realm of the possible that you actually have laws preventing minors for owning and using airguns.

You can't humanly ask a person to know the law in it's whole, along with jurisprudence.

You'd actually be surprised how little comfort that yields if and when you'll look down the barrel of a cop's loaded gun. Don't forget, they'd probably like to be alive by the end of the day, so they don't take chances.

Unfortunatly, so said the other hundred or so other kids that asked the same question this year. Don't believe me? Check the trash.

You want to shoot? Fine, go to CT, they have a wide assortement of quality-esq pellet rifles to sate your hunger.

But don't expect to come into a forum that has strict anti-minor laws looking for ways to circumvent restrictions that we as a community decided to enforce.

It's not that we don't specifically don't like you because you're underage. The point is that odds are you'll fuck up, and someone else (your legal gardians) will be held accountable, along with us.

There are ways to start playing when under 18. They're on the forum. Find them.
