That stereotype actually goes beyond age 18, there is no shortage of dumbasses over 18 either. The only reason there is that 18 year old rule is for one reason only:

Liability

Get the legal adult age lowered to 16, and you'll see that number drop down to 16 too.
*I personally wouldn't mind, since it would mean all those rioting/protester under-aged teens would be tried and treated as adults too*

I guess the way I look at it is like this, you can spend $200k on a Ferrari. And everyone who sees it knows exactly what it can do, and how much you paid for it. Or you can spend $50k on a WRX or something, and another $50k in upgrades to end up with something totally custom, will match/beat a ferrari and surprise everyone.. all for half the price. But you need to know your shit to build it. If you want something turnkey, reliable, and you dont need to know anything about it, buy the ferrari. IMO, a PTW is no different. They have their place just like everything else.

that is quite true but i find 4x32 acogs or some what less zoom scopes
quite useful when dealing with spotting targets, shooting them.... maybe not as much but still helps

classified without pictures, and I'm not talking about one shitty cellphone pic.
Do you seriously think I'm going to buy a gun without several, sharp, close-up pics of it ?
an ad without a pic tells me that your intention to sell the gun could be more intense, and that maybe you do not really give a crap about selling it, which in turn is worrying about your will to ensure the transaction will go smoothly.

This, or in the case you do get pictures. They're 3000x5000 and out of focus.

My pet peeve is the postal service. I am not over exagerating AT ALL when I say that every time I have a parcel shipped to me Via express post, I recieve it over 5 days after the due date. Let me just say, if you think you are doing someone a service by shipping their package via express post, you're not!

You could ask the seller to demand a shipping refund. And have them give you the difference. I did that one time. Gave a guy a refund on the shipping cost. Every package shipped express post has gotten there on time.

Edit: Its only express and higher that has the shipping guarantee. Regular shipping has nothing. They dont even give 100 dollars insurance anymore on it.

In this situation the seller has payed for the shipping So I can't ask him to refund. Im just really upset that I can't rely on the postal service ever.

Just ask them to prove its functionality by having them shoot it themselves. We've done this on a few occasions with some individuals. Works every time.

According to the guy its taken hits before, infact it took hits during a game. I don't care personally. It's airsoft, proper ballistic eyewear is the right equipment, that or paintball goggles. I'm surprised he didn't get ejected. After the game a team mate said he even witnessed the player taking the goggles off his head to defog them. Yes OFF the head, not on the head, completely removing the goggles from his cranium during an active game.
