Hey I used to be a air cadet. Was only in it for a year though and I quit, just wasn't my thing.

And welcome Neil_N, some people say you NEED to spend like $1000+ when you start on airsoft and I have all my gear and everything and I've spent a little more then half of that. You don't always need to get the best stuff but dont start looking at Walmart for guns :wink:

Although generally frowned upon, if your dad is going to get this gun for you, be aware that he will be legally responsible for it and what it is used for. And he will have to be present each time it is used. This would mean he would have to attend games with you etc...You seem to be fairly knowledgeable so i trust you understand this and what it means... Also read the FAQ's and info regarding age verification.

Good to hear, this sport is ruled by mutual respect, on and off the field and if a new player (especially one under 18) is willing to play by the rules and respect them and understand them then you will be more than welcomed by fellow airsofters.

IF a field allows players under 18 (few and far between), your father will also have to be a participant in the game. There's no 'dropping you off' or waiting around for you at the staging area. He's either in, or you're not. And of course, if he's in, he also needs a gun and the appropriate gear to play.

Oh you dammed army cadets. Air rules!11oneone!11eleven (now that thats done).

I suggest that you wait until 18, save that money for your RESP or other investments. PLUS it gives you the advantage of investing your money so you can buy even more stuff when you're older (in 2 years). As for the parents thing usually it's they have to play with you actually on the field not just in the viewing zone, or drop you off and go shopping.

I'm 18 in about 3 months and I'm gonna wait to get age verified (it seems like everyone is saying the best deals are in the Classified section which is age verified only).

The other option is to have your dad age verify for you, buy 2 guns and both play. BUT I think there is a catch about age verifying, he needs to have his own account or be the primary holder of the account (ie. you're not 18 so you can't verify on your current account unless it's under the control of your parents or he makes his own second account so he can track what he's/your buying).

PS: I'm a F/cpl ((which equals M/Bdr) but don't judge my age based on rank) in Vancouver. I've gone to 5 camps 2 Band Camps, Rifle Coaching (I don't consider myself an expert but just knowledgeable), Air Crew Survival (surviving in the bush), and International exchange.

Having a pla or gun licence does not help.

"Fully trained", you say?

sniff... sniff... sniff... What's that I smell?

Oh, of course...
Shenanigans!!

Any cadet worth their uniform would know the actual designation of the weapon they are handling & firing, as they are being instructed & over watched by members of the CF.

So which Corps, Squadron, were you, are you in?
