All Im going to say on this age subject, is that I will try my best to make sure I know who I am selling to.

Right now, it's leaning towards the scam side rather than the legit side.

I am glad I posted here, again I say.
I would like to say that although I haven't been age verified yet, I do agree with all your points. There are too many young people out there whose first thought is some illegal activity.
I myself, have had some friends of mine show how irresponsible they are. He kept it loaded, cocked and unlocked in his house and his girlfriend shot me from 4 feet away in the chest 1 1/2 inches below my right collar bone, on bare skin.
He is 26. So everyone can be irresponsible, but if they are registered with an airsoft site, generally they have a respect the rules and know the laws regarding this sport we love.

What was the point I was trying to make... lol

Yeah, but you see, although its a good way to "try" to get away from minors, the ASC system is for ASC, no store is obligated to use it.
Maybe this should be looked into? Is there a way we could try to make it necessary to check age verification through a registered site? Just a thought...

Quote:
We have been taken for rides in the past, and as such remain skeptical. This can easily be validated by having an ASC member have a look at the product - hell, I'd be happy to have a look at them myself.
I asked about picking up my order and he wouldn't allow it... made me skeptical.

They could be the kindest church going people in the world, but take the risk of screwing up the sport I play and have invested tens of thousands of dollars into. In order to make a quick buck off of me and, all of you out there that I consider friends in this sport, well I'll do what I can do shut you down if I hear or catch you doing so.
Now I haven't invested as much as this, I am new to this sport... (my boyfriend, Hectic, enjoys it so I thought I would give it a try and I love it) and I believe we need to implement some sort of way of ensuring that the AEG's don't land in the wrong hands.

If I were a parent, I would be wanting to know what my child needs me to buy this for him. If I knew my child was well behaved, and respected the rules and was using it for the sport, I would more than likely buy it, but it would be treated as a gun. Now if my child had been arrested, or had a violent temper, sometimes these things can't be helped, I might not be so prone to buy it. I guess my point there was -18, depends on responsible parents.

Sorry missed part of my point for my qoute but I would be upset if I sent payment to someone and my product never came.

The only qualm I have about the age verification process is it's difficult. If it were to go nationwide (as in ALL Canadian Retailers) and be strictly enforced, people who live in buttfuck nowhere get screwed out of a sport they may love. Not only that, but the long process of the transfer of information I've heard so much about (some people wait months for the verification to become official). Should the Age Verification process become a golden standard (which I am all for by the way, so don't get me wrong), the Verification agent coverage across the nation should be stepped up and the entire process should be sped up (as people tend to want to get right in to shopping).

Anyway, it seems several orders have been made and we'll know soon enough what the score is. They might be getting a flood of orders or we may never hear from them again, who knows!

"Mr. Crazy Sniper"

Haaaaaa.... Funny!

Who else placed an order? Whats the point? I'm already taking the hit for the community :salute: :innocent:

If they provide me with convincing pics of my Tommy being built (which I'm sure they will), I will have no doubts about them, period.

Cheers,
Alex

If it turns out to be a ripoff, you'll have to handle all the "I told ya so's" by yourself, haha.

Believe me, I'm hoping against hope this is legit. The StG44 is the Holy Grail in this household, and if I could land a quality copy of one... it'll be a happy day.

Well my pops and I just ordered up 2 StG44's and some extra mags. Even if they cut and run it's not to bad of a cash hit. Besides that it'll give me a quality idicator to see if it's worthwhile to pick up a MG.... or two.... or three.

You now have advice from someone in the legal practice who is also part of the airsoft community telling you it would be wise to sell to 18+. If I were you I would stop saying you will "do your best" and figure out a way to actually make your buisness 18+ if you want to stay in buisness for long and if you want the support of the airsoft community.
