A multitude of questions!

I've been interested in airsoft for 4 years and also have a love for firearms, but not the typical love that everyone asscociates with ganster rappers and such. I'm a fan of military history books and have been for about 7 years. Due to this love for the military I joined the Army Cadets but I quit earlier this year do to issues with my life. Now that my mini biography is done I'd like to say that I am a 80 and above average student and will probably be considered dumb or idiotic because I have almost no grasp on grammar.

I'm probably going to go and check out an airsoft game on or around my 15th birthday this year because I want to go out and play a game of airsoft on my 16th. Would I be accepted at one of these games if I went out? Would they limit me because of my age? Would they flat out deny me access to anything on the field?

I personally don't think anyone under 16 should have any pellet/bb/airsoft guns and the like because they're generally immature and like to mess around the end result of which is someone getting hurt. Personally I think I know a lot about gun safety due to being taken to a gun range and being in the cadets, but I'm still unsure about how much I know. Which leads me to my next question. If I showed sufficent maturity and respect for the guns would I be allowed to play at 14 or 15?

I'd thought I'd finish off this incoherent question session with a little bit more about myself and my experience with guns. With the cadets I've fired the Daisy Pellet rifle and attended basic and the CL summer camps with them. On the May long weekend I also got the chance to fire the .22 Caliber rifles (refitted Lee Enfields I think) and the C7 Assault Rifle. I scored high in my corp and got my Cross Rifles and Crowns (I'm proud of that and I'm not trying to brag). At the gun range I visted I had a chance to fire a Glock 19 (I think I even have pictures of that somwhere) and a .22 Pistol.

Again I'm sorry for the incoherency of this post and my lack of grammar.

Check the threads about age-verification, then read the Information/FAQ section. After that check if local places will allow you to play.
That will tell you all you need to know.

Some games allow 16 year olds but you have to have a signed permission/waiver from a parent. And your parents must stay for the whole duration of the game. I'm going to tell you right now...if your parents are there...you'll hate it and they'll be bored as hell unless they're cool with airsoft. Wait until you're 18 and start saving up for guns and gear. Start up costs run from 600-1000 Canadian. You could ask a local game host if you could check out the games and see the game in action as an observer maybe just maybe someone might let you hold or even try out a few guns.

I was in my mid 20s when you first told me about airsoft, Poncho. Does that count?

I was interestred in airsoft since I was about 17 but did not seriously get into buying anything until I was 20 and now I am 22 with 2 aeg's and 3 gbb's plus a few grand worth of equipment and accessories. Sad thing is I still have more to get before I get my dream rig set up though it should only take another month or so.

If you mean that one 24 year old guy who came in last year or something, I think he quit, so it doesn't count.



I hate it when I'm going to have to come back and split my own threadjack later.

When I was 22, I thought airsoft was the stupidest waste of time I'd ever heard.

To Mox-6 once: "You spent $500 on a toy bb gun???"

By 24 I was part of Deadpool.
