Translation:

Here in Toronto, there is a large amount of airsofter (or airsoft games, or airsoft stuff... not too sure), but as far as I know, there is not much for those under 16.

Do your parents play?

Ok now for me.
1. No there is not retailers that are selling guns in Toronto, yet alone Ontario.
2. There are not places near Toronto that will accept under 16 years old to play. I, being 17 is pushing it, but for under 16, pretty much no way in hell.

moving into Canada and to play airsoft is a bad choice. they don't fit on the same boat. but all things aside, welcome to ASC.

i know of at least one place that might make an exception given hes got these going for him

1 1 of his 2 parents are airsofters.
2 He has proven hes mature.
3 He asks the hosts very very very nicely.
4 When and if he dose play his guardian will be there playing as well.
5 He is mature when a hard situation arises.
6 His parents own the gear he uses.
7 He has pashents(some one please help with this word meaning to wait) with people.
8 He doesn't make him self out to be a problem.
9 He doesn't do something really really stupid like some one who's going unnamed.
10 He calls his hits.

Might take him a good 6 months to get on his feet here but its posible.

He also has to be at least 16.

He states that he is under 16, and I know that 99% of the host's will not accept anyone under 16 to their games no matter if they are all of the 10 points listed.

Too Ali: Its not that we don't want you playing, its a mix of liability/legal matters and the fact that, hey, in Canada, airsoft is pretty much reserved for the older crowds unlike the US/UK were any Tom, Dick and Harry can play.

Its also 3 times more expensive (quite literally) then the US/UK and most of the World, due to our laws.

My recommendation for your, as a accepted under 18 player here, wait until minimum 16/17. During that time save up for an AEG and have fun buying gear. Its worked for me, my father owns my AEG until I'm 18 and I have more gear then a lot of the airsofters I play with.

Cheers

EDIT: Uh... roughshadow are you using Firefox? It has an a grammar correcting feature...
