Dont forget Amos, Madbull is in on it as well.



There is absolutely nothing wrong with drinking in the afternoon.



A pint of Rickards white with an orange slice, and double wild turkey topped off with bar lime. Who the heck needs a coffee break when you have this at 2pm in the afternoon.

That's because it does fall into the "prohibited" devices category by technicalities.

yeah the flavour is there, it's not like a corona that NEEDS a lime wedge, ever since Rickard's came out with it, they've been promoting the orange slice, tried it at the beer and cocktail show when it first launched and they insisted that the orange be served with it, wtf?

people below 18 are, in the large majority of cases, and i think by definition, immature. Airsoft is a sport that requires a lot of maturity and character, because there aren't always ref's watching you. You must act according to your better judgement, and moderate yourself according to accepted airsoft etiquette. I played CQB with some guys last night who displayed a complete lack of character by not calling their hits and ignoring the house rules(they were 18+ i'm almost sure). It takes integrity to have the will to compete and the desire to win, but to moderate your own behaviour in a game, and call yourself out when you know you're hit, but people wouldn't necessarily know if you kept going. a lot of minors don't develop any sort of responsibility or character till later on in their adolescence (according to my precise guesstimations). some develop it faster than others, and some just don't goddamwell develop it at all. The majority, though, are somewhat responsible by the time they reach 18. at least enough for our purposes.

second, airsoft is a physical sport that involves inflicting pain on your opponent. Nobody wants to shoot a 14 yr old. I'd feel bad (in most cases), and i think a lot of other people would too.

Third, airsoft mimics real life combat maneuvers. I don't know anyone who condones the use of children in a fighting force, and i sure-as-hell don't.

as a side, we want to put our best foot forward with the public eye looking at us (which it always fucking is), and having a bunch of children running around shooting replica firearms at each other is not only in bad taste, but it would have so many armchair moralists writing their politicians that it's probably make your head spin.
+1

If you want to get technical kids can start in the Reserves at the age of 16 learning combat training and weapons.

and Mr. Hitman you can legally look at porn too. T7 take notes you might have a customer.

Quality post. I always laugh when one of the people who are under the age of 18 spring forth like the savior of the youngens to proclaim there are no laws. There aren't laws this is true we as a community say 18+.

There is one province with a law that states 18 to purchase I believe. Someone should have asked me this 15 minutes ago before I put down a pint a rye and half of a double gin.

Kokanee is a good beer when I'm trying to save money.
