I would love to have a 30 gun collection but i dont have the money. we also travel to go play at other fields with other clubs as much as we can. I am disheartend when i hear "teens should never touch airsoft guns" because i love to play it and i will continue playing it. if you have a problem solve it by getting me on the field.
Please dont do that, and please understand why we say you should wait until you are 18. This has been discussed to death, just read about it.
If you are responsible, then you are also mature enough to understand the principle of legal responsibility, accept it and follow it.
There ARE ways you can play if you are under 18, and that varies from province to province. Just stay within those requirements.
