age verification

im fairly new to this sport and have just been introduced a few weeks ago. last night was my first game ever and i am in love. i am 16 year old and would like to think im fairly mature for my age. ive been a big gun lover all my life. i have a box full of fake plastic guns and cap guns. and always watched those good war movies. so my question is. if i went and met someone to get verified can i get my account verified if i were with my mom. because i know if i wanted to order somthing off the site i have to be age verified. so if anyone can help me out id appreciate it. and yes ive already read all the newb guides,FAQ's etc

enter greylocks, stage left

that is a good question.... seeing as you have to be 18 to buy, but you are buying with your parents approval and forseeabley their money it seems as thoough it might be ok, honestley i cant see it being approved without causing an uproar as this area isnt usually open to interpretation, nor discussion you would most definatley need to talk to Lisa about this, thats her department.

Your mom can get verified, but not you.

As much as you are mature, there's a legal side to the whole age verified thing.

It doesn't matter if you're as mature and wise as someone such as Greylocks, you are 16, you cannot have YOUR account verified, no matter hows strange it seems. You have admitted to being 16, it's too late now. The site is strict about the rules, and classifieds are 18+ not "Mature 16 year olds and +"

Don't argue, it won't get you anywhere.

I don't verify parents for them to buy their kids a gun.
The only exception would be if the parent play with the kid.

I think this opinion is shared with all the age verifiers.

why wouldnt u verify someones parent if they dont play.. my dads pretty old and just had a heart attack and my moms 45 and yea right shes gonna go play with guns. how else am i suposed to get a gun? from what i see it is pretty hard to get a gun. but it should be rediculously hard to get a gun especially with parents concent, a designated play area, and about 20 people that ur going to go play airsoft once a week. im not trying to argue or anything with the verification at all. i think its good to have and i understand why its there. but i think its rediculous to not verify someones parent so they can get there kid a gun to play airsoft. i am really wanting to get more serious with airsoft. make a team and what not. but yea i guess ill pm this lisa person and see what she has to say

No, you don't understand why it's there.

The LAW says you have to be 18 to acquire a gun, not us, the LAWWWWWW. We are simply enforcing that rule.

I'll use the same analogy I use many times before, you have to be 19 to smoke, you can't get an adult to buy those for you to use, can you? (Well, you can, the adult will just get in shit) Airsoft rules are similar.

As much as you're enthusiastic about getting into airsoft, you have to be of age to acquire an airsoft, most field require you to be over 18 to play (due to insurance issue mosly), while some will let you play with parental supervision or consent.

Meanwhile, you can learn all about airsoft, upgrades, accessories, maintenance, stuff like that.

If you continue your whine, it only shows us you're not mature as you say you are.

Trust me, it's worth the wait. Don't forget that these guys aren't paid, and do have real lives... mostly.

You can post here and contact Lisa on it, but yeah, these nice people aren't being paid and have jobs, life and the whole nine yards, so it may take a little longer.
