Wow this thread got huge fast!
Majority of us retailers take the necessary steps to ensure that we're selling to people who are 18+ years of age.
Here at Specarms we have been requiring customers who buy Airguns (accessories don't apply) to fill out a Waiver and also to produce a valid picture ID. We do this for Online Customers across Canada and for the local walk-ins as well.
99% of people are fine with jumping through hoops. But when that 1% doesn't agree / or refuses to fax/email us their ID, then we know something is up
But the bottom line, there are
responsible underage people out there, and there are irresponsible of age
people out there.
It's very difficult to filter out the people that we don't want to sell to.
