Some soft air guns break 350 fps with .20's so they are stronger than you think. Whenever i fight i use ski-goggles or something relativley protective.
Just wanted to put that out there.
I here you man, I'm 16 and I've taken my Hunters Ed. course, I have my PAL and FAC licences... I always treat all my guns like real ones. I only have a TM MK23 Socom pistol right now, but I never even put my finger in the trigger guard untill I'm ready to fire... Hell, I have an elastic band gun (lol) and I treat it like a real gun...
I've always thought that the rule should be 18+ or Hunters Ed. course + FAC to buy guns in canada. Possibly get verified by showing your FAC... To bad it will never happen
I can see why though, you can never tell who has the smarts to actualy know what to do... I might be joining the reserves, I'm sure that they will drill even more safety rules into me... Plus, I hunt with my dad and his friend, who used to be in the US Rangers as a Sniper, He also used to teach hand to hand combat in the Navy Seals, He always "teachs" me a leason when I do something wrong with a firearm...
