Take your PAL to an RCMP detachment, and get someone there to verify you (with your PAL and other ID). This, unlike ASC, will be a LEGAL verification.
I'll set something up nationally, and the RCMP member can send me an e-mail regarding your verification, and bam - you're on the list.
The verification will mean "he has a PAL and he's 18+".
This way we use PALs, the RCMP gets involved, and now anyone in the country can get verified.
Maybe this sounds dumb, but you if you are all up for it I'll try and get the ball rolling. I think it'd work.
The "reps" become RCMP. Who are everywhere....
What do you think?
I think its a silly idea.
Let me get something off my mind here. Your system will "limit the amount of idiots coming out to games" as I'm sure someone will tell me. Personally I don't want to limit the number of idiots that come out. Because 80% of those idiots walk away not idiots. And they go on to become decent airsofters. By putting your idea into play you seriously scare off a lot of people. I don't want to go get a PAL or FAC or whatever so that I can play with my glorified toy guns. I'd probably just walk away from airsoft if I had to go through all that BS just to play a game. I wouldn't be alone in this opinion either. If you want to strangle off the game and kill airsoft in Canada, go ahead and try to institute your idea. There are few enough players as it is.
That is all.
