Hello and welcome to ASC. Please read the FAQ, as it will answer most of your questions:

http://www.airsoftcanada.com/showthread.php?t=51609

At 15, you will not be allowed to participate in any airsoft events. Some hosts allow those of age 16 to play, but most require you to be 18.

Cheers

And even then I believe (don't quote me on this) that your parents are required to be around at the time. As for importing into Canada from the US... No, it won't work.. your best interest not to even risk your money on a gamble but like kalnaren said wait till your 18+. Lots of good deals in the classifieds.

Even though an american site claims they can ship to Canada, I wouldnt believe it. Its more of a wolf in sheeps clothing thing. Once it leaves their possesion Im assuming they will have nothing to do with it if it gets seized.

yep...Opsgear doesnt just sell airsoft, and their airsoft section is very...it should eat more.

the gear is fine, but like they mentionned, wont get passed the customs.

Just wait another year, then you can go out and check out some games and gear, and learn as much as you can. Keep paintballing for the next few years. You can only truly appreciate airsoft when you are able to buy/trade and go to larger events. 3 years will go by fast.

This is completely true. If you can take anything away from this thread it should be that you should WAIT!. I discovered the sport of airsoft about 3 years ago when I was 14 and Hearing about the 18+ rules that were just coming becoming standard and extremely enforced. At that time I was a little reluctant but I soon realized that it was a good rule and I'm not getting around it. Now, almost 4 years later and I'm 4 months away from hitting 18 and I look back at the time I waited, got to know everybody in AAS, It was no time at all!

Getting to know them opened up a GREAT sales deal for my first purchase and they all mostly trust me before I even hit the field.

So take the time and wait, hop on your local areas forums and get to know everybody there.

That's because we used to drill it into your head when you brought up age. He unlike most noobs actually took the hint
