Because the government said, clearly, that Replicas can only be owned by someone over 18?
And if you interpret that rule in a certain way, a teen cant use one either?
Also because; many teens dont follow those basic rules (parent present and use on an authorized field); the program you want does not exist (and they're not likely to implement it); and if you really want to shoot something just go see if there is a youth program at your local gun range?
Then there's the novel idea of waiting until you are 18 and do this legally?
