No I had or have no intention of hiding it from them. Just if I did purchase one and my parents allow it I would probly tell the RCMP I have one so they dont jump to conclusions

Why would they jump to conclusions? Why would they know about it?. When you are 18 and buy an airsoft gun, it arrives to you in a styrofoam box wraped in shipping paper so no one knows what it is. You immediately buy a case from your local hunting or sports store and lock it. Then you take that case it hide it under your bed or someplace out of sight. You dont take it out in your living room with your friends to do some bunny hop videos. Keep it locked up so none of your neighbors whisper about you being some sort of criminal when you walk by and having false complaints called in about shots fired or illegaly stored firearms which will only make your life a living hell.

In short, never take it out and no one is the wiser. Where the heck did this tell the RCMP stuff get into your brain from?

My suggestion to you is to tell your folks that if you were to aquire an airsoft rifle the first thing you would do is make the local police aware that you have one. alert them about the fact first so their not surprised when they see it. Store it like a real weapon to insure a safe sense of legal posession.

Yea... no. Selling an airgun to someone under 18 is against the law so your not getting an AEG till your 18. When you do get one there is no need to tell your local police since they will never see it. Keep it locked away like a real firearm would. Hell get a trigger lock if you want to along with locks on the case.

Its safe to say your parents are not going to be buying you an AEG, so you dont have to worry about any of this for a few years at the very least.

Really? You should ask yourself why the classifieds use a verified 18+ user list now then.

You know how at crappy tire you have to be 18+ to buy a BB Gun? Same thing applies to individual citizens.

Your parents said no, get over it, either wait a few years to play AS, or try something else.

It is a law, you think Crappy Tire gives a damn about Airsoft Canada? It is a LAW that is on the BOOKs. I HIGHLY suggest you read up on airsoft and its laws, as well as normal pellet gun laws.

Come back in 3 years.

When I was about 12 my dad gave me a slingshot, not a crappy one, a really good one, I still have it. Ok maybe it is just a sling shot but you can kill people with it. Then a couple years later when I turn 17 or 18, I don't remember, he gave me his .177 pellet pistol. The point here is when your parents know you are mature they will give you what you want. My dad gave me those things because he knew that I would use them properly. Don't think that your parents don't understand a thing about airsoft they think it is best for you to get more maturity (even though you might be mature enough). Maybe you'll get a surprise one of these days.

But if you want them to really know what is airsoft, you can try to bring them to a couple of games. So that way they will see what it is. But then again it their call. But I know that you understand fully their points and the points of all those who replied to your enquiry.

Good luck and keep up the good work.

Kid, I waited from when I was around 8 to now, and I turned 23 this year. My parents refused to let me get airsoft guns so many times that I've lost count. And you know what? They were right. Now I'm responsible for myself and I can actually afford to buy the guns with my own money. I thought I was pretty responsible when I was in my teens, but looking back now, I realize I often only thought I was. So, to repeat what people here already said one more time, forget about airsoft for the time being. Take up paintball or making money, both will help you when you're actually ready for the sport.
