depends on the game host.

some allow younger kids but its rare. I'd rather just keep it 18+

If your parent or guardian plays and the host allows it im sure, also if yer close to 18 and and have fire arm experiance like cadets or something and the field/host allows it it may be doable, but id suggest start saving yer money for a good primary and some gear, start doing your reasearch on what you like so you know what to save for, and we will see you when your 18

also id suggest gettin yer flame retardent suit on
and read the FAQ's and blah blah..
sorry i fogot my spoon today lol
welcome and i hope this info helps

If you have 16 or more, there might be hope depending on your area. Fill in your profile, this will help.

If you're under 16, you're out of luck.

All in all it depends on the host. Doesn't matter if you have a gun or not.

The closer you are to 18, the better your chances MIGHT be.

In Toronto I'm not sure, there are a lot of fields to play on there but you'll have to check with local hosts and ask REALLY REALLY nicely.

I know that FVAA/Big Foot, Low Shotz, EASY, and Ambush Anonymous all do under 18 but you're not really anywhere near any of those groups (they're mainly in the West if you're wondering).

PS: I'm against under 18's and airsoft (hasn't been that long since I was a kid) but if you're safe, responsible and all that I don't see anything wrong with that.

Also, if your parents are willing to join in and stay on the field (in the spectator area) I see nothing wrong with letting you play, it's just some hosts don't like having kids due to liability (even if it's a private host they could still get nailed for liability/due care or w/e) and they also don't like being "babysitters" where the parents just drop off the kid and leave to go shopping or w/e.
