This is why ASC is so hard on minors and uses strict age verification policies to try and ensure airsoft guns do not get into the wrong hands. Unfortunately this community can only police those who are involved with it. We cannot control things such as minors using websites with less strict policies to purchase airsoft or minors purchasing cheaper airsoft from retailers such as Canadian Tire through an adult. Without exception, safety is the first concern of anyone in this community.
In any case, I'm glad no one was seriously hurt. As serious airsoft players we are quite aware of the dangers involved.
