First things first

Hi,
I'm seventeen and I am new to the sport. So I was wondering where i could, near Toronto, begin to airsoft.
I have abolutly no equipment and I wondered if there is the possibility to rent some on site.

Thank's

Keep on being great

buying or renting guns you'll have to wait until your 18 then get age verified and buy in the classifieds, or at a retailer... as far as playing Im not sure if theirs places you can go but you'll have to at least have a parent signed waiver

Cheers

Welcome to the great world of airsoft!

You will be able to start playing in a few months when you are 18. When that happens, be sure to get age verified to gain access to the classifieds and the AV retailers section of the forum to start equiping yourself. You can start by buying a vest, bdu and essential stuff, but the parts and gun are restricted for now.



And BTW...Start saving, 'cause airsoft is addicting and can become costly over time!

Until, then, read and re read. Save!!! Ask questions based on the things you've read. Listen to what the more experienced players have to tell you, they arn't trying to shit on you. They have already made all the silly noob mistakes you are likely to make and are trying to save you the trouble.

Fixed!

There's about three and a half tons of information in here...If you use the search fonction and don't find the answer to your question, use a different term. Your question will surely have been asked already.

Bleh, it can't be that bad. Addictive? Seriously? It's just shooting people with expensive guns, expensive gear and shit like this. Really I don't see how it can be that costly.


-oh wait

Where are you located? Some clubs allow people 16+ to play. Some indoor arena's have rental guns available. Depends on your location though.

well my advice is that the first thing that you should buy are a Good set of Goggles, a set of JT paintball goggles are what a lot of airsofters in and around my area use.

Next you want a set of Combat boots or jungle boots,(jungle boots are better for warmer weather type of play so you feet don't over heat and sweat) and lastly you may want to buy some camouflage clothing, I suggest maybe going with either a woodland or olive drap, as those are the most common types around.

after that just do you research on the different AEGs and there merits and flaws , what is in your price range for the moment.

when you are ready to get out to the fields, ask before hand if you can see if any one can loan you a vest and an AEG, as you will not learn what type of gun is best for you till you have had a chance to get a feel of the gun it's self.

also till you know what sort of gun you will be fielding, you won't know how to configure your vest. because if you field a P90 over let's say a AR/AK or a M4 or M16, you won't know what type of Modular pouches too buy for your vest.

As different AEGs use different types of magazines and because the different magazines are different in shape and size, the need different types of pouches so then can be carried around.

P90 mag's are longer and thinner, while an AK47 mag's has more of a curve in it's shape. M4 and M16 have a curve to their body but not as pronounced as the AK47 mag's.

hope this is of some little help

Can I ask you a serious question? How much sand can you fit in your vagina?

Your not going to get far trying to pick up guns unless your 18+. Find fields that run like a "pay to play" site. Your parents will most likely have to sign for you, and even hang around while you are there. Most local teams won't go near someone who's under the legal age if majority either. My advice for you is to use your next year wisely. Have things ready for when you turn 18.

- Track down a local AV'er
- Pick up some decent starter gear
- Read as many forums as you can here, to learn much
- Start putting money away, so you can buy a decent gun
