Smile Question about age (apologies if this is a repost!)

Hi all! My name's Matt. For the past, oh.. 4 years or so, I've been a paintball player of the milsim/woodsball sort. Recently however, I've decided that with the addition of having to purchase car insurance (I will be obtaining my G2 license in 4 months) I can no longer afford to drop $150 every weekend to go paintballing, because paint is simply so expensive. Which brings me to the topic at hand - I've decided that I am interested in airsoft. I own a few gas pistols, mainly for target practice. But I would love to get into the sport, and play, as BBs are much cheaper to purchase, especially in large quantities.

I should mention that I am 16 years old, 17 in around 8 months. I have my minors firearms license, and I understand how to handle firearms properly and how to respect them. I have been reading on this forum, and others, and have (for the most part) understood that most people will play with a mature 16 year old (or above). I also, however understand that some people will not play with anyone under the age of majority, I.e. in most places 18.

My question is this: do you, in your own personal opinion, think I am old enough to go out and play airsoft? My local field (Flag Raiders) is where I would go as they hold open airsoft nights every Tuesday I believe, or something along those lines. They have it for 16+ and 350fps max with a .20g.

Thank you so much for any responses! Also, a side note; I apologise if this is a repost, or if this post is not in the correct category!

Enjoy the rest of your day!

- Matt

While from your post you seem a pretty decent fella with a head on your shoulder, that decision is not for us to make

All that really matters in the end is the rules that the host of the game
you're going to decided on


It is true that most game are 18+, it is the de facto rule but some host might decide otherwise once in a while or in a regular basis.

If Flag Raiders allow for 16+ and it's in your area, there really is no questions to ask and by all mean go enjoy yourself!

Welcome to the sport

Are you sure you are going to pass G2? Hehe..
On a serious note, if you have minors firearms license (didn't know those exist) and can handle real guns, you are ok in my books to use a toy gun. But just like you said, its up to the event host, if he wants 18+ you are SOL..

I certainly hope so! Needless to say, I'm nervous, but I am taking a drivers ed course in a few weeks which *should* help. Thanks for the reply! Have a good one.
