I'm not talking about anything. That would be rude.

I'm implying however...

This discussion is moot. The admins made their decision. It's done.
Well, posession of an airsoft gun by a minor is NOT illegal. Only SALE to a minor is. If a parent wants to buy their kid a gun has every right to do so. Now, I personally say that the gun should be in the parent's custody at all times except when it's to be used, and then under parental supervision only, but not all parents feel that way. Hell, I had pellet guns when I was 13 or 14 and my parents couldn't give 2 shits about me having them as long as I didn't do anything stupid with them.

So kids can legitimately have airsoft guns. They just can't buy them themselves. And I agree that they should be allowed to buy all the necessary parts to build their own either.

I'm wondering why the gear section isn't age verified only as well now.

+1 to that. It just makes me feel better knowing I'm buying from someone 18 or older. Simply a maturity thing. Lets me know I've got a much higher chance that I wont get ripped off and not have some 12 year old think he can just take my money and not ship me a product.

You don't have to be 12 to ship a block of wood or a rock in place of the item you're expecting...

But with verified members, you know someone, somewhere, met this guy, and it'll be possible (and probably pretty easy) to track the scum bag down.

Add to that the fact that they could possibly also sell in the other sections (or all sections), giving them some trader feedback sooner/more often, which in turn gives you peace of mind to buy from someone.

For the record, the only people who would have a problem with the parts section being restricted to age verified people only are the minors

My spidey sense is tingling, indicating that the restriction in question is both reasonable and effective.

It's simple logic my friends, you shouldn't need to buy parts unless you have the gun and you shouldn't have the gun unless you are over 18. Therefore only people over 18 need to see the parts section.

Please read the FAQ on age verification. Parents have been turned down more often than not.

I'm very happy to see this happening. If you have someone legally resposible for you (underage players) who play the sport you will have no trouble getting what you need.

In the past two weeks I've taken my nephew to buy parts for "his" gun, He's happy and underage. I'm legally responsible (and his mom) for his actions and with the ASC support he KNOWS the beatings he would get comes from my team, not me if anything were to arise :P

He plays WITH me, no babysitting for other players to worry about.
