Airsoft around me?

Hey, I live in Strathroy ON. about 30 mins from london, and i just wanted to know if anyone played airsoft around me, unfortunately im under 18, but hopefully that wont matter to much to people, i have my own gear and everything so now im just looking for a place to play and people to play with.

how old are you exactly? airsoft has a pretty solid 18 only rule.

Yeah it really depends. Alot of older players generally don't play with someone younger unless known.

Its nice to see that you have an interest in airsoft.
As it stands ASC and the majority of its users stand by the idea that people need to be the legal age of consent to purchase, have and use. As it stands though in some regions of Canada there are places that allow people as young as 16 to play. Keep a patient friendly attitude and an ear to the ground and you just may find something.

Best of luck.

if you are 16, you would need game host permission as well as parent accompaniment to a game.

There are games in Ontario that'll let the occasional 17 year olds play, but the individual have to be screened by the host ahead of time. For a 16 year old, you're not likely to get any leeway short of a well-known playing parent. If you could get your mom or dad to play and be involved in the community, there might be games that are willing to accommodate you at your age.

Not be be a dick here, but how mature you see yourself to be has no bearing on whether or not you'll be allowed to play. Every 12-15 year old that comes here makes the same claim, and more often than not, they're eventually throwing tantrums when they're told that they can't play or get a gun and get banned. Not saying you'll do that in any way though. Just saying that this is often the case. Also remember, what you , at 15, determine to be "mature" and what adults consider mature can be 2 very different things. Become a productive member of the community here on ASC. Once we get to know you, we'll determine that for ourselves.

As for immature jokes, you'll find that most airsoft players are a bit offside with off-colour senses of humour. Take a look in the "You Laugh You Lose" thread in the off-topic area, and you'll be able to see that for yourself. So in this community, that can actually be a plus...

have you ever actually played before? no not backyard clearsoft wars but actual events, there is a good reason for our 18+ rule, it's to keep kids that think they know everything and are irresponsible away.

Every underager says the same thing, "oh im only x years but I'm real mature for my age" whatever

Read more about airsoft, and wait until you are 18 to start playing, no reason you cant start saving up or buying gear (no guns tho, 18+ to own guns)

There aren't many players in London, and so there's no actual games here. We commute for our games. PM me if you have any other questions regarding airsoft in London.
