there isn't really much in terms of verification for online sales. if mommy or daddy order it or give JerryMcGoulBerry their credit card, it's hard to prevent it from happening.

OP never said he "ordered" it, just that his gun arrived

Sounds like this needs to move to the restricted section.

I'm sorry you feel this way. If it makes it any better, i do work a part time job and i pay for this hobby 100%
And basically i get my parents to order it, i give them the cash, and they sign it at the door.
I'm also responsible with my guns. I would NEVER take them out in public, or do anything with them except use them at airsoft fields. I'm trying to represent my age groups so we don't get looked on so poorly, and I can see why you guys do.

TA is a business, most businesses want money, plain and simple.

Who has the most money to spend? 14 year olds that work 10 hours a week.

There's a little button titled "edit". Don't need to post a new post to apologize for a double post, just edit the duplicate.

It's not uncommon at all to see a parent accompanied by a kid(s) equal to or less than the OP's age at Toronto Airsoft buying guns. There was a thread a few months back regarding this very issue. I no longer spend my money there.

Im with you Kozzie

I personally feel airsoft stores should use the same policy the LCBO uses. If it looks like the customer may be buying this product for a minor, denial of service.

.....That's basically like saying gun store wants money and will sell to anyone.

I was unaware that Toronto Airsoft is a monopoly lol
But I do agree with that. Minors should not be able to obtain them(don't mind my lack of age verification, I am doing that tomorrow).

Anyways, I was thinking of getting a mystery box, but I am not a big fan of AK's, so I decided to avoid it.
There are a few video's on youtube of people's result, so far I have seen 2 VA VK47's, and 1 Cybergun AK.
