Now like i said before its the same as drinking thiers rules and one of them is age part of the age rule has to do with being mature not everyones mature at 18 very few are mature at 18 but alot more 18 year olds are more mature then 14 and 13 year olds i used to be just like him to till i joined this site and realized its not that easy as click and play thiers laws to it

now i must take a breather from all this typing
any disagreements with my statement?
Rules state that with parental supervision, someone under the age of 18 can use a gun (airsoft, soft-air, pellet gun, bb gun, etc.). Parents would be the only
owner's of any guns being used, they would be stored away from easy access by the minor. As soon as the minor reaches legal age, those guns that the parents own, could technically be given to the child. Parents would be liable for anything the child does under supervision (or not under supervision) and would be charged accordingly.
However most fields have an 18+ rule, some have a 16+ with parental supervision rule.
As with drinking, children can be given alcohol at any age at the parent's discretion and under their supervision, airsoft guns can be used by minors at any age (off the fields that require a certain age to play) under strict supervision by parents. Of course at parent's discretion, maturity matters in this case, parents that deem their children to be responsible and mature enough to handle an airsoft gun under their supervision are leaving themselves out to dry if their decision is a bad one.
Obviously the problem with this is that it is usually ignored by any minors, and ignorant parents will go out and buy an airsoft gun for their child without checking the laws and regulations that apply to airguns. Kids will then play by themselves and get into trouble, get on the news, and continue to hurt this sport.
That is why it is not recommended that minors have access to these guns.
