They can probably help me find the KA m4 as well and upgrade/downgrade it to be safe to use at their field.
Have your father come out and meet an age verifier...
Then you are all set.
If a field is allowing you to rent guns keep the $500 and use it for rentals. There will be much better guns available by the time you can be A/V'd then you can have the latest and greatest in technology.
