No. Age verification is an ACS forum rule that limits access to the classifieds to persons verified to be 18+yrs old. It is somewhat inline, but separate from any government firearms regulations/laws/acts/etc...
I do no believe that the FAC "says you can also acquire airsoft...", but then again I'm not going to read it to check. If you find that quote, please post the specific reference up for others.
Pay attention to the safety course and best of luck with it.
