I totally agree with you in principle, but if you overheard some of the conversations I've overheard....

But enough thread jacking I'm actually curious what people are getting in their mystery boxes, do tell guys.

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.
I for one commend you for atleast speaking like an adult and defending yourself with an intelligent answer unlike most 14 year old s#*t rats I see out there. Don't feel bad if you are 14 they'll stop picking on your age in 4 years or so. On the subject of retailers selling to minors, if they know its a kid with no supervsion then they are completely irresponsible. However its not gonna make much difference, I was in Toronto Airsoft and watched a Kid maybe 12 trying to return a broken cansoft m16 to put the money/credit towards a pistol. His mother was standing behind him nodding to the retailer telling him the kid can have whatever he wants. She only looked up from her cell phone long enough to ask what the price difference was. The retailer was trying to steer the kid hard from a pistol explaining the amount of maintenance it requires but the kid was stuck on it and mommy wanted to keep little "Jimmy" happy. Due diligence from the retailer can be completely disregarded and circumvented without a credit card just as easy by the quote unquote adult supervision.

All that said. I prefer playing against 18+ players. Atleast when they do dumb shit I can pimp slap em. "What the 5 fingers say to the face? SLAP!"

I got my 1st gun at age 12 and didn't terrorize the neighborhood with it. Not saying it was right to give me one, but the world did continue to turn as I shot targets in the woods.

Kids will always have access. Always. This little guy seem articulate enough to express responsibility.

Guys can we stop hating on kiddies before they prove themselves to be stupid? Sure a lot of them are, I was one of them, but there are a lot of guys over 18 just as dumb...

And for those of you that say not to blame the retailer, TheWarStore in the States refuses to sell to someone of they know the person will try to sneak it across the border illegally. TA won't sell to a kid by himself but if mommy is there too then it's okay. I see it every time I'm there.

if the parent is there or gives up a credit card knowing its for the purchase of airsoft guns I have no problem with it. As responsibility shifts to the parent.

If I go to the Liquor store and buy booze for kids thats my fault not the stores.

from reading other posts from this OP I don't think hes a knucklehead.

I as about to get in on that round of mystery boxes but the amount of cansoft was far too much. I didn't want to end up stuck with a half clear gun that would cost me allot of money before I'd want to use it.

14yr old getting airsoft guns

I'm new to this forum and new to airsoft in general even though I own several airsoft guns. I read the debate over this young man getting airsoft guns and had to chime in. I understand that 18 is the age to buy these weapons but young people get them through their parents. In Ontario boys and girls at the age of 12 can take a hunter safety course and get their apprenticeship card which allows them to legally handle and hunt with real steel firearms provided they are under the direct supervision of a person who is fully licensed. This being said I believe that if this young man's parents feel he is responsible enough to buy the weapons for him then who are we to judge. If people want to see change then maybe the airsoft world can get together and lobby for a safety and apprenticeship program modeled after the real steel version. This may put people a little more at ease with our growing sport but then again there are those amongst us that believe people who like airsoft, hunting or any so called violent sport shouldnt be allowed to do it, just my two cents worth.
