Are you guys aware of how many minors in your area actually own airsoft guns and play? In my city, there are A LOT! Most of them use crappy tire guns, but there is the occasional full black AEG. Some kids even use friggin pellet guns!!! That's dangerous.

My backyard faces a huge greenbelt-ish place with a forest and some fields, the 14 or 15 year olds play there sometimes. I'm gonna give them a talking to next time they play.

We've got a minor league that accounts for about 30 kids, but I know there's a ton of kids in winnipeg which crapsoft guns
Even a handful of our old and highly respected airsoft veterans used to play in a forest behind their school during lunch when they were young lol

Nope, not really aware of how many.
But I'd say....not many. Full black or full metal guns I'd say close to 0.

Canadian tire wouldn't keep stocking shitsoft if it didn't sell.

Real airsoft? Probably none, based on the amount of "guys what's a good full metal gun that's accurate and has long range I have $100 to spend!" threads we get.

We had a few neighbourhood kids plinking with cantiresoft from house to house up and down the street late last summer. I would find BBs around my front and back yard after work when mowing the lawn, etc., and I got quite pissed off about the whole situation.

Aside from telling them to never, ever fire the gun while my family is outside (or in public in general), they don't seem to understand the possible ramifications. If it starts up again next summer, the parents will hear about it (uncomfortable anyone?) - and then the authorities if it doesn't stop.

The irony is that I have a 7 and 10 year old who both understand what the dangers are, and are genuinely afraid of the damage they can cause without protection. What are the parents of these kids doing? Ridiculous.

I know of a group of kidiots in the little community I live in that actually play in the streets(which changed to "my dad's 30 acres" when I said they could go to jail) with shitsoft. In the town of Creston(10 mins away), there's a group of kids using what I've heard are "expensive" guns. The sad part is, it's the mayor's kid(15 years old) that's bringing these guns in.
I've heard that they're more responsible with their games than the kids in my community though, and have set up a small paintball/airsoft field up against the mountain on the mayor's property.

I've also found out that the local RCMP detatchment in Creston will literally throw confiscated guns in a dumpster behind their station, which has been gone through by a few people.

Had a mother bring in a LCD monitor that her 7 YEAR OLD had shot with a crapsoft gun.

We got talking and she truly believed a bb gun was an appropriate gift for him.

what do you think the kids do with the guns they buy from Walmart or Canadian Tire?

They buy them , or get there parents to buy them but have no place to play so they play in the local woods/parks....

They finally find ASC and find that no games (or not many anyway) allow under 18 so they keep playing but still buy better guns cause they read and see what/where they can...

Just another reason I would rather have a kid on my field then in a public area playing
