True man... I got a couple buddys in my regiment that can't have a beer in the mess after training cuz they're only 18... It's crazy that he can't have a beer in the mess

Worse, now the trend is wearing girl jeans.

I honestly haven't seen or felt much negativity from ASC members towards me or other minors. Darklen and TCLP have been a help so far in regards to local advice but I have yet to attend an event of any sort. I find it annoying that I can't use the classifieds but I don't mind cause I can get AV'd in just over a year.

I think it's a necessary precaution especially with the fragility of the sport here. Think of the bad light it would shed on the community if some 16 year old R-tard went and shot an airsoft gun at homeless person or something stupid like that and they found that he got the gun from someone here. Or worse, he blames this community for "inspiring" him to do it or some stupid shit like that. You'd be surprised what people will do to try and stay out of trouble.

I think Saint summed it up pretty good. If a minor comes here and doesn't act like a jerkoff, there won't be an issue. For example, I haven't seen a single case where a minor has been heckled for saying "hey guys, I'm 15/16/17, I know I can't get a gun yet, but I want to learn about airsoft etc. etc."

However, far more often when a minor is told they can't get a gun yet the response isn't the above but rather "f**k you guys!" followed by some other colourful words. For people like me who also work with with teenagers, of which a fair number have horrid attitudes and deperetly need a beating, I'll admit it DOES induce a bit of bias on my part.

um, no! not the attitude that I'd expect to see an underage trying to build a reputation with.

maybe my opinion might be insightful..I was here before I was 18, with little to no knowledge of airsoft legality. Or rather the opposite.lol

I got flamed, a bit, it stung, but whatever. You must be much like me. Because I grew up with a strong sense of where our generation is lacking. I was also blessed, or rather cursed, with 3 other things. I chose music that was easily misinterpretted, I have a religion likewise, and a poltiical standpoint much the same. So when I'm so critical of the people my age, i wasn't surprised to see the people here doing much the same. So relax man.

This is their game. They spend hundreds, thousands of their salaries on it. You and I already know the other stupid things our generation does. Why the hell are we going to give them airsoft, so 'beef' could be settled with bbs!?!

And those of you who want to know why you can join the army, but not drink at 17. That is hipocritical disposition of the world my friend! Hate it, laugh it at it, acknowledge it, but you're not seeing a revolution any time soon. i don't drink, and looking at people my age, and the way they do, I get dissapointed when I see them drinking anyways. I can't stand to bare that these people will help me control the future of a powerful 1st world nation.

I'll take the 17 year old that's respectful and eager to learn anyday.
+1 T_A_N_K. I have never seen a trend in the age of poor players. Personally i have always found the younger people in some sports quicker to learn and actually listen to advise from older people. Give advice to your 30 year old teammate and see how often they take it without being offended. Then again I am 28 and I know everything dont I?

Thanks man! But The biggest thing a new persn can do is source out there local boards and make it known where they are from on ASC . It prevents alot of flames and allows others to point the "new guy" in the right direction. And local boards also tend to be a lot less uptight. my 2cents.

and with that comment I take everything good I previously thought about you and throw it out the window.

I believe the topic has been thoroughly discussed and no more can be gained or explained on the subject at this time. Things are they way the way they are for a reason.

I was kidding....

I apologize if my "gunning down someone" comment offended anyone BUT it was JOKE and was meant to be taken as one. And if someone DOESN'T accept my apology, then I've learn't my lesson. I'm SORRY !

Thought I'd get my opinion out there and see what other people have to say ?
