why is airsoft 18+?

my brothers friends(15-17) come to the house on one visit. they cant keep their hands off my guns while im taking them out of their hands. they keep winding the mags up which i have to take out, catch loose bbs, release spring tension, fire that last bb out, and dump a handful of bbs back in the mag while theyre doing the same thing with another gun. and then hosing the guns, dry firing, dry hosing. talking about how cool my sniper rifles are and my halo gun, which would be ak's m4's and the jg dragon.

then they come up with the idea "hey lets have an airsoft battle" and at this point im like sure (id love to shoot the fuck out of you punk bastards)
they get shot a few times and become afraid. literally afraid. almost crying, and give up. and im like hey youre gonna be 18 in a few months, act like a man. ...oh and talk like a white person, youre not a rapper
so before they leave the one thinks its a cool idea to load up a mag and hose the whole thing on me from 4 feet away while i was wearing a wife beat tank top. and then he dropped the gun on the floor


this kids next visit which was today i might add... he sneaks off outside after him and my brother were out shooting a big rs magnum and killing chipmunks with a pump action 22.....anyway he sneaks off with my jg dragon (what he calls "the halo gun") he put my lipo battery in it which i dont like to use, and he takes it out on full auto hosing it and then put it back. i come down to the basement to find my aegs and a few spring rifles layin around. all the spring rifles cocked and loaded, and my jg dragon sitting there still set to full auto. so i picked it up to unload the mag and then when i fired it in semi to clear that last bb it went WHIIIRRRRRRRR!!!!!! so i had to raise the motor back up into postion. later my brother tells me about the kid telling him that it kept not shooting right and making noise and im just like aaaww...... fuck

THATS WHY AIRSOFT IS 18+!

Dusti69 may I suggest a gun locker? Or some other means of storing your guns so only you may access them.

With all due respect, this entire post smells of improper gun storage and handling on your part.

1) Why are the guns out in the open and not locked away?
2) Why are they stored with the batteries and mags in the guns?

In all honesty, the entire post you made could be avoided if you had locking gun cases.

+1. I was thinking the same thing. They should be locked in a gun case.

I find it a bit funny that the people who are preaching the over 18 to play, are just over 18 themselves.

But I'm just an old fart, what hell do I know...lol

Dusti no offense but you're a retard. Im not even going to go into the whole "omg trat airsoft like it r real guns!!" and pick you apart for a bunch of unnecessary safety precautions for a toy gun (although having the batteries in them laying out is pretty dumb), and since you live in the US where people are still sane about guns thats all well and good.
You're just an idiot because if you dont want people fucking with your shit, either hide it or lock it up. Thats like saying "oh man... im so tired of my car being stolen every day.. why cant a guy just leave his car unlocked with the keys in the ignition and not have to worry about people stealing it?!". You create these problems yourself, not your brothers friends. It's a teenagers job to be an idiot thats what they do.

I think it would qualify as a "distraction device". Men were given a ***** and a brain, but only enough blood to operate one at a time...

everything was kept locked in a room. but the house doors are easilly unlocked with a small flat head screw driver. and i keep my guns batteries in the battery compartments un plugged and mags in the gun. i dont really see any problems with it. even if they were laying seperate its no big mysystery how to hook everything up

18 +

Its simple... really .. until you are 18 you are not an adult and can't be held legally liable for your actions.

As a person who is not legally liable you should not be running around with an object that can cause property and personal damage unless you are supervised by someone who can be held legally liable.

In most municipalities in Canada By laws prohibit the sale,possession or discharge of "firearms" by minors , most municipalities define "firearm" as "anything that fires a projectile"

Provincial statutes establish the limitation of sale of "firearms" ( includding bb and pellet guns which airsoft guns are defined as ) to people over 18 .. Provincial statutes don't say anything about possession ..

Federal law, the Criminal code, Says minors can not posses firearms ammunition or replicas unless supervised. Legal possession of replicas is limited to persons over 18 ( granted this is an interpritation of the statutes.. but its an A-B-C interpritation )

So you have Municiple, provincial and federal law indicating that firearms ( however they may be defined ) are not to be possesed by minors

At the municiple level .. the definition is broad and the penalites light ( fines )
At the Provincial level the definitions are tighter.. and penalties still fines
At the federal level the deninitions are quite specific and the penalites potentially stiff , incarceration..

through all the levels there is one theme.. Kids should not have these things
