Also if you like the idea of racking the bolt back with every shot, the M14 has an operable bolt system (non-functional, purely for aesthetics) so you can simulate using a bolt action.
You might also want to fill out your profile a little more so we have a better idea of where you live so we can help direct you to the proper people (age verifiers, gun docs, fields/teams/games etc...)
Done, and I'm actually on my way to go get age verified in an hour and a half.
