Are you guys aware of how many minors in your area actually own airsoft guns and play?

What are the parents of these kids doing?
nothing. They can't even gather enough autority to tell them to go to bed.
I know a lot of intelligent parents who completely fail to give any kind of structure to their kids; who in their turn do not respect their parents at all.

in my area kids don't have airsoft, they're all Hassidic jews.They go to school on sundays.

I'm gonna admit, before I was AV'd, there were about 15 or so of us in Halton that would play in one of the forests. It was however private property and the owner gave us permission and also played with us sometimes. There were even some AV'd players that would come play.

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
True, but did you see the post about the kid's mother that sued an other kid's mother for 7000 bucks because her kid got a tooth chipped off by a BB ? I wouldn't like that happen to me because a mother is pissed even if she signed the ''discharge??''

And i remember using a .177 pellet gun as my first 'Scirmish' gun.. (same as all my friends)

tougher times (yes, we wore Eye-Pro) but i expect to hear tales about CDN_Stalker using 22LR :P

at the end of the day if i saw a bunch of a*seholes (regardless of age) pissing around with airsoft i'll call the police, far better they're stopped BEFORE a member of the public gets a BB in the eye. Plus they might learn something.

Back in my home town we used to go out to the local dump and shoot pellet guns at each other.....

Then we built our own paintball field and tried to start a business..

Its tough when your a kid and there are no places to play.
When someone tells you not to do something, well you do everything you can to do it.

Problem now is kids in cities who feel they have the same freedoms as town kids.
Couple months ago I saw some kids outside my shop running around with crapsoft guns, they were running threw peoples property as if there were no consequences.

to tell the truth i am only 14 and have some cheap canadian tire guns ith my friends, however we never play in the city, only in the country at my uncles farm, and we NEVER carry them in public, heck i even saw kids younger then me on my street with cheap shotties rounning arounf freely with no eye-protection. i seriously dont know why the parents of these kids aren't watching them, but its beyond me. my parents would give me shit for pullinga stunt like that.
