I'm not mad, just slightly irritated at your completely random post. To jump into drama llama mode right off the bat after I ask you what you are trying to tell us reeks of troll, so I'll simply leave this conversation after this post. I don't need another MCR fanboy crying wolf to the mods about me.

As for "letting us know so we'll help you", why should we? First, the gun has been discussed to death, so all you need to upgrade it is already on the forums. Literally everything. Second, you're 13 years old, why should I help you make a more powerfull and precise gun.

You will be met with the same attitude as every other minor on this board, why should it be different?

This doesn't mean you will be ripped to pieces as you seem to think you will be, but your "confession" will not necessarily help either.

YMMV.

Not lazy, they just don't have to check every car. Would take too long, and they would need more people. But yeah, as everyone else said, count yourself lucky, keep doing more research, follow the rules, and when you're 18, grab an AEG and head out to your local field! There are a few places in Toronto, and then some out near Cambridge and Brampton.

Actually this is untrue and a generalization.

Our local field runs highly structured courses and set games for kids as young as 14 for example, so we treat people with the respect they have earned regardless of age: simply put we have found just as many asshats who are adults in the airsoft community and a good number of underage players who are a credit to the sport.

no games for 14year olds in ON, as far as I know, some hosts allow 16yo players with parental supervision, but this is an exception not a rule.

Well against the odds, you got it here without getting in trouble and kudos to you for doing your research and admitting you did something you weren't suppose to. At least now you know.

I'm still relatively new myself but the general consensus I found is sniping isn't for beginners in this sport. If airsoft still interests you when you hit 16 then save up for an AEG and God willing if ASC is still around, get age verified. It'll open a lot of doors to you. Till then, you can spectate a few games and save up for an airsoft budget and you should be in good shape on your 18th birthday.

Yes. 18. Not a single exception. No way around it.
