As mentioned, you can't get a gun in Ontario before you're 18. That's the law - no sales of air guns to minors under 18. Once you are 18, get age verified and you'll have access to the classifieds and retailers here on ASC and can get a gun then.

There is no such law. That's a RULE that's imposed and enforced by the community

You're 2 months from being 18 and BW is 5 months away. You have time to buy one... Get your gear in order till then - BDU, vest, good boots, etc. And remember, you'll need a good charger (ones that come with guns are shitty and kill batteries), mags, etc....

Oh, and if possible, take the course offered at TTAC3 and try to get a couple of games in before BW. Trust me, BW is not really a noob friendly game. It would be good to have a bit of experience under your belt before jumping into that.

It's airsoft in Canada. I can count on one hand actual "tactical" teams that are going to push really hard and may scare noobs :P

Aside from that, it'll be like any other indoor airsoft game... only bigger, and better, and highly memorable!

What's the problem? BW3 is in JUNE.

You're going 18 in APRIL or MAY. You can get a gun before BW3. Hell, you could probably BUY a gun AT BW3, there were sales at BW2.

That's not really what I meant. What I mean is that before jumping into a large 200+ person game, it's better to get a bit of experience under your belt so that you know how to actually work with your team and have an idea of how your gun and gear actually performs in-game. It's a real bitch figuring something like that out for the first time in a large game like BW.

Trust me, my assault team at BW2 consisted mostly of noobs who had never played before. Most had no idea how their gear even worked and were having all kinds of problems. As a result, they were getting wiped out nonstop. Was the shittiest time I ever had playing airsoft until I joined up with the rapid deployment force later in the day.
