reading your entire post, not only do I not think your mature enough to play, I think your entire attitude is what is killing the sport. Being a good at airsoft has nothing to do with age and everything to do with attitude and quite frankly yours is your age, childish.

True the policey and treatment of this site of young underage players wasn't the most mature in the past but has gotten allot better and tolerant. It is an attitude like your own that led to that original treatment.

[QUOTE=Legoman2179;1971316 Also, I think once you get to be 18+, thats a little old for airsoft and you should grow up. [/QUOTE]

What once we hit 18+ we can't be active, have a hobby, spend the money we work for the way we want? You realize the sport only grows and expands cause adults spend money on it. The only sense of protection this sport has from being banned is the adults. So what adults shouldn't play video games, or hockey. Yea, lets stop doing things just cause we become old enough to be held accountable, sign waivers or vote.

Realize this, adults, make the world go round. Adults and the 30 somethings you complain about made this sport, run the events, fields and shops. This sport, any sport would not be anywhere without adults.

Bingo. Enjoy playing airsoft in the backyard. There are reasons games are hosted at large facilities. Adults with contacts within the correct groups.

18? You ain't got shit.

We all share a love of airsoft and you guys need to be more open to younger kids playing or the sport of airsoft will die. It is becoming a sport that kids play with their friends, not where adults play with strangers.

I wouldn't even know about this sport if it wasn't for the thirty and forty-year-old dumbasses who introduced me to it. I'm thankful for the road the "older" guys have paved to what we have today. Sure its not a perfect system, with funny import laws and tight firearms regulations, but thanks to them the sport has grown and made it accessible. Be thankful you don't live in Australia. I'm amazed at how ungrateful some people can be.

Have you honestly ever been to an actual field? There is a real diversity; youth your age with their parents or friends, tons of guys in their 20s all the way up to their 40s or older. If you show up to a field or event with this attitude I guarantee you won't last long. Sure, we're all strangers, but we all share a common interest. Even your best friends were strangers at one point...

Dude re reading some of that stuff I posted years ago made me cringe. Needless to say underage kids play quite frequently now and has changed the dynamic of some fields. There's lots of young kids I play with that are more respectful than some of the adults and its all maturity and all that jazz.
