59 year old newby

Hello group.

59 year old newby here. yes 59. I like the airsoft for their workmanship. I'm not a gamer. I'm in the Vancouver area and I'm having trouble tracking down an age verifier allthough at 59 years old I find it a bit silly but rules are rules. Can anyone direct me to an age verifier out here in Vancouver? The ones on the list don't answer email inquiries.

Looking forward to getting age verified.

Thank you

Dan

Welcome! It seems silly perhaps but unlike at the liquor store the admins here can't just look at you and tell. You say you are 59 but what if you are actually 12, or a dog, or both? Of course 12 would be an old dog, and then we couldn't teach you new tricks. I don't know where I was going with this. So again, welcome!

(And regardless of the liquor reference I've not been drinking.)

None that I see for the moment but I have seen them here for sale time to time.
But once you get AVed Im sure some one here can track one down for you.

Welcome.

As they are specialty, fairly rare items - the price is fairly high and it may make more sense to go the domestic retail route (do NOT try to import one of these, it likely will be seized by Customs).

There is at least one advertising retailer that does have a king-arms poly-stock black version listed on their site.

As you said - rules are rules. I'm 45 and physically disabled (relatively speaking) - but for purposes of acquiring these realistic non-restricted firearms for display purposes, or actually gaming them - it's all a lot of fun - if expensive. I'd suggest giving gaming a try at least a time or two - it's definitely a lot of fun.

Good luck to you.

Thanks everyone.

I look forward to hearing from someone out here that can age verify me.

Just a thought. What about using Skype to get age verified?

Would be hard for a 12 year old to look 59.

Speaking of 12 year old. Wouldn't that be nice at 59 to go back and start over? Exept for the school part that is.

Thank you

Dan

There's a guy on here ASC name Antique who's 60 ( I know I verified him) and he plays a lot. He sneaks through the bush like a friggin ghost and scares the crap out of you when he mercies you. So your never to old for this sport, Come on out to a game and teach those kids that old age and trickery can go toe to toe with youth and skill!

It's been tried and yes, the rules have been put in place for a reason. ID cannot be authenticated over the internet. regardless if you may look old enough, once the admins allow breaking the rules for one person, where does it stop?

are none of the BC verifiers getting back to you? http://airsoftcanada.com/showthread.php?t=74996


edit:
Last I heard White_knight is fairly active and he verifies The Vancouver/Burnaby area http://www.airsoftcanada.com/member.php?u=13397

Had similar issue with the Verifiers in the Lower Mainland. No one got back to me. SO I went down to Airsoft Gear in Richmond and someone took care of me..
