Just Starting Out

Hello everyone! I am just catching the airsoft bug and wanted to drop in and say "hi." Looking forward to getting involved here and learning more as I build my collection.

Welcome aboard!
Protip: get age verified asap because it takes like 2 months for the verification to go through after meeting a representative.

FIXED. You joined last month, 2 months couldn't have passed for you.

Welcome to ASC, and yes you should get age verified and it often takes around 2 weeks to do and opens up this sites classifieds which often source some nice deals. On things like real steel gear or well built Airsoft guns.

Any questions feel free to ask.

EDIT: Noticed your from the USA. Not sure about getting Age verified here as any deals we get the US has better ones. Even more so with our silly Canadian Dollar atm. But this forums are filled with people passionate about the sport so this is excellent place to source information.

I'm pretty sure the verification takes different times depending where you live, who is near you, and are they willing to meet in short notice.

but u are right, he is from USA..I don't really think he needs to be AV'd but there are information here..although i did find some of the USA ones being really handy as well, like a list of products from hardware stores that is the same or better than the parts in your gun...

My AV took over 2 months from initial request. This includes having to finally do it in another province. Having said that, there appears to be a renewed commitment towards AVing so your mileage may vary.

I was literally told by my AV'er that a person who has been waiting for over a month still hasn't been AV'd and I have seen people complain that they have been waiting for 2 months and still haven't got AV status. I wasn't complaining that it takes so long, I wasn't talking about my own experience, I was saying what I was told to expect.

Edit: I told him to do the smartest possible thing for someone who wants to get into airsoft through this website, though I didn't see that he was in the US. For some reason, people assume I was complaining though?

Thread goes from guy being excited about airsoft and saying hi to people talking and complaining about the AV process for no reason.

Welcome to ASC OmahaOutdoors, there's a ton of information here once you get around the useless stuff.
