i went back to my local walmart in london and actually found someone that worked in the sports department. when asked "if you have to be over 18 to buy and handle this product, why isn't it behind the glass with the BB guns?" and i was told that there was no room so the store manager wants it on the floor, that you have to be ID'ed before you buy it and you should wear goggles when using it. so i bought that response, for now. i'm sure that walmart could afford to put in a bigger glass display up, but they rather just keep the money in their pocket. part of me wants to unleash a wild pack of soccer moms, but i just don't know where they would draw the line.

Ya they sell them to anybody, but they do say "MUST WEAR EYE PROTECTION" in big bold letters. My friend has some of them and they don't hurt at all. Infact there pieces of crap. The "Full Auto's" don't even do full auto, they never work and you have to be standing like 25 feet away to even be able to hit someone... so kinda pathetic if you ask me.

Having spent six years in cadets I've seen some of the stupid shit young kids do when they get a rifle. Like it says even on the Corssman soft airguns, treat it like a real firearm. I can't believe parents would get their kids a real rifle without any kind of training, so why would they get their kids a pellet gun and be like "now go have fun little Jimmy..."

I'm just looking at getting into the sport now... I'll be real pissed if some little f**ktard ruins it right after I drop a crapload on some equipment...

I'm 14, and own 2 soft air guns and they are POS IMO and im looking forward to when i can actually buy a real air soft gun. I'd stop with all the "13 year old's are imature and will never be capable to handle a airgun properly" I've taken my hunters education course and have hunted with an airgun and real firearm before and only fight with soft air guns on our farmland. Some soft air guns break 350 fps with .20's so they are stronger than you think. Whenever i fight i use ski-goggles or something relativley protective.

Just wanted to put that out there.

Then you're one of those few responsible ones, good job. I still wouldn't want most of the 13-yo kids I know running around with a projectile-shooting instrument.

So, where are we going to read next that you got shot in a hunting accident? You think its easy to say "Shit, I'm responsible, I can handle it!"

This kid is only 14! I've seen 31 year old's say this and still get themselves shot. Two years ago we had a kid that came up, who decided that since he was responsible enough he was going to load to semi-auto .308's and fire from his dad's truck. To top it off the direction he was shooting in, had a farm house on the other side of the fucking hill!

Responsible puts the gun down. And no, we're not quiting with the "blame all 13 year olds," Because its easier to pass off anyone over 18 that does something stupid as an idiot, but a kid might not have known better and thought that it made him super "responsible."

fasts are that the rule stands, 18+ is 18+ and i dont care how old you are, if your not 18+ or know any better you shouldnt even touch a softair gun let along a Firearm... talk about responsible parents. and your little hunters/firearms course is a common sence course and it doesnt mean shit, accidents can and will happen that can cost you your life or someone elces, or in softair/airsoft your vision or someone elces.

im getting tired of the 13 year olds that come on here and "think" the are responsible... and "think" they know how its all done. those videos that were posted earlyer just goes to show what happens.
