Age verification..

Okay, so what is someone supposed to do when they are of age but don't live near a verifier. I am in the East Kootenays of BC and from what I could see there is nobody around me. It doesn't seem fair that someone would have to go quite far out of their way simply to get verified..

Quick question: Are there local active players near you that are on ASC, and where do you intend to play with the gun u get after ur verrified? My point is that you have to drive to get verrified, I also assume you would have to drive to play a game with local airsofters on these boards.

Don't know any of the local players..just trying to get a few of my buds into it. There's plenty of crown land to play on around here, no different than paintball.

Quite different from paintball as far as laws go. You can read about that in the FAQ section before you get a surprise or two, and preferably before you think about investing your cash.

Playing airsoft anywhere else than a paintball/airsoft field will get you a nice talk with the law. And a hefty ticket. You might even meet Captain Stabbin in jail where you might spend the night.

Where can you find the legality regarding where you can and cannot play?

Im not exactly sure how to explain this, so Im just gona go with it and hope it makes sense.

http://www.airsoftcanada.com/showthread.php?t=23034

Basically, airsofters play on paintball fields because, they are a safe place to gather and play, where the field owners have agreed to allow us to play. With in the safety and confines of there personal owned land that is liscened and insuranced for said style of game play (specfically for paintball but I suppose we can sneak airsoft into there somewhere, Im winging it here common)

If a bunch of genius yahoos show up on random forest land and start hosing each other down, a passer by who sees this could wonder whats going on, why do those people have Guns? why are they shooting at each other? Next thing you know the police/rcmp get called they come take your guns away, and in the worst imagineble situation someone gets shot because an officer/constable thought that someone brandishing an a TM m4 was a immediate threat that required to be neautralised.

If you have to ask, you did not follow the advice of reading the Information Section of this site where this stuff is already written down for you.

In all honesty, the local laws are making me consider switching to paintball.

Those guys can get fairly crazy on realism as well.
