There is no law that I know of that actually states an age for PLAYING airsoft, although you should be 18 to own and operate an airsoft gun on your own. Most fields (private and paintball) in Ontario enforce a strict over 18 age restriction, as does AirsoftCanada, for the purpose of buying and selling.

It all depends on where you play as well as the game host with their specific requirements. The games that are 18+ may allow you to play if one of your parents or legal guardian play side by side with you, but you will often find that some host would also require that your parent or legal guardian be known to the ASC community.

Though you have to be at least 18 years of age to purchase an airsoft replica, it isn't necessary to own one or to play on a field, given that you have permission from the host/field with the presence of a parent or legal guardian.

Although most fields are strictly restricted to players of 18+ years of age there are some exceptions where younger players do have the opportunity to play.

Now before you start telling us how "mature" you are for a 14 year old, the 18+ guideline is a matter of legality and liability and not maturity, there are no waivers or insurance papers that cover airsoft claims like paintball at the moment.

Again, you won't be able to acquire anything if you are not of legal age, i.e. 18.

Especially in Ontario, as it's actually illegal to sell to under 18. Other provinces it's only a "guideline" however it is a generally enforced age limit to sell to in other provinces.

Also yes you can play just ask nicely and don't be a whiny idiot. If they say tough luck come back in 2 years then do it cause you're in luck even if you can't play right now, most places it's 18+ only so be thankful there's a place that will let you play. If they say sorry come back in 4 years then just wait it out and you'll be 18. Keep in mind there are places like "Low Shots" and "Ambush Anonymous" who run a pretty good ship (I respect them for what they're doing and they are doing it safely and smartly so I don't have a problem with that) and allow minors but they're really outliers as it's general policy around Canada for 16+ or 18+.

You're 14, do things 14 year old kids are supposed to do! Drink, smoke and go to casinos. All legal for you!

Unfortunately for you 18 is the minimum legal age required to purchase an airsoft, pellet or BB gun in Ontario. I also believe that Ontario has laws against the discharging or any above the above mentioned devices within city limits. So for the time being airsoft is not an option for you at this time.
