Surplus store in Kingston selling TM blowback guns

Some electric and some gas. They are brand new and on display. What makes this worth reporting to everyone is that they have a sign saying you have to be 16 to buy them. This concerns me. I'm not really sure what (if anything) I can do about it. Thoughts?

Write them a polite letter telling that the legal age is 18+

Then roll it around a big rock, and throw it through their front window.

You mean there is a place that I can buy guns!!

lmao, I wouldnt buy one anyways.. since it isn't legal for me to do so. I would recommend sending them a polite letter stating that it is indeed illigal. If they continue to sell the guns contact the local authorities.

As the regional age rep, I felt it necessary to talk to the store owner regarding this very matter, and it was made clear that he being the store owner would set policy as he saw fit. It's his store, his rules, enough said.

And as HoJo hinted at, the prices are outrageous - $100 for a springer.

Sorry, guess I'm used to the Aqua Underground prices hehe. In speaking to the owner though, he did have an understanding that they are not to be treated lightly, and when it comes down to it there isnt a whole lot to do. But we don't have a big problem here with young'ins getting shot by police for playing with springers and the like... Truth be told I'm sure most of them would rather spend the money on a squirt water gun and some pot

I recall a thread like this a while back, surplus store, could even be Kingston, that sold airsoft guns, but their prices were hugely marked up, like close to $1000 for a stock TM M16 type thing. Same place mentioned here? Price CAN be a factor in lower age restrictions, but not always. I remember when I was 17 and working, it'd take me about 4-5 months working to save up that much. Still, they SHOULD stick with 18+ only. Local surplus/paintball store here sells the 'Soft Air' crap (and quite a bit of it), and they even only sell legally to 18+.
