I've never had sex for more than two hours.

I'd consider two hours of my life a very short amount of time = fast.

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.
Thanks man I geuss ur right hard to wait 10 years I'll try my best

You don't have to wait till 18... Normally 16+ is okay as long as you're mature.

It isn't illegal for minors to have airsoft guns anywhere but in Ontario. It is, however, not recommended.

There's no need for you to wait 10 years - 3 will do. Where in Alberta do you live anyway?

well let me get in this action. i am 16 and my parents now i am not gun dumb i have gone to fireing ranges and what not. the first time i saw airsoft god i was to to young to play. but all i did to make my parents say sure sing up and is. show them the WCAN rules and told them i would follew them to the letter. second i got a player's MSN from the team i play with and let my dad talk to the player fro about 30 min and that is all it really takes. just let one of your parents have a talk with one of the players for a time and see what happens. i thought that letting my dad talk to some that has played for a year or two was pretty smart of me.

You're missing out. It's good times....


On topic, they're right man, wait 3 years, read a lot, it'll be better for you to wait, and on the plus side, you'll have time to talk with your parents about it and try to win them over a bit during that time.

Concentrate on doing teen things before trying to grow up and doing adult things. There's a whole slew of things you could be doing besides airsoft.

That are both cheaper, and more entertaining to a teen... 'specially if you want a straight bang for your buck comparison...

Why dont you get into paintball? play paintball for a few years and then come to airsoft, necause in paintball at least your allowed to play, there are kids your age playing so you'll be accepted better. After a few years of paintball you can just get into airsoft by saving up some more money and selling your paintball gear.

According to the Criminal Code Airsoft guns fit the description of "replica firearm" and "imitation Firearm" consequently they are a prohibited device, and no one under the age of 18 can purchase one legally.

There is an exemption under the possession and transport sections of the Criminal code for possession so people can legally own them, but no one under 18 can. Other than the possession and transportation exemptions ( in that it is **not** an indictable offense to transport or possess replica firearms) all other sections of the criminal code with respect to Prohibited Devices apply to airsoft weapons.

These are **not toys ** in the perception of the law they are just as illegal as any other prohibited firearm, except you require no license to posses them.

The firearms act is pretty clear as to who can legally own Prohibited Devices.. and certainly no one under 18 years of age qualifies.

Someone over the age of 18 could buy it.. but it would be illegal for them to give it to you as only people and businesses licensed to trade in prohibited devices can "transfer" a prohibited device to someone who can legally own one
"transfer" means Sell, give , loan or rent,

Sorry Chrome.. you have to wait

Well, I'll be 15 in a month. My parent's say it's okay for me to get an airsoft gun, if I assume complete responsibility for it. I think it's a fair deal, but i'm not looking to purchase one right now. I'm browsing the forums, picking up things here and there, and hoping to get to know a few of you so when I do join the sport, I'm not all alone out there. I'm just looking for more of a MilSim type game than paintball.

This is totally wrong. If airsoft were prohibited devices nobody would be able to have them, 18 or otherwise. Everything you said in that post is absolutely wrong, I don't know if you made it up or you think you heard it somewhere but it's all completely bogus. Legally (except for in Ontario) under or over 18 makes no difference for airsoft.

I'd say wait untill youre 17 then take them out to a game let the game org or a player talk to them. Let him explain all the stuff that needs explaining and make sure he explains that the police cant shoot you just because you have a gun in public you have to comply or they can't shoot at you.

The player/org should explain everything fully and make them feel more comfortable about owning the airsoft.

Another option would be when youre 18. Either still living in your parents house or in a apartment/dorm then you buy it. (Be careful your parents might not like the idea of you having it in the house even if you're 18 and they might kick you out. But they love you too much to kick you out right?)

Next year join the reserves and show your parents you're responsible. Some people in the reserves play airsoft so you can get you're parents to talk to them. Plus they give you free CADPAT.

yes, free CADPAT which you shouldnt be using at paintball fields. Also you're suppose to return when/if you leave.
