no. not really. if a field owner and game host "allow" you to tag along and take pictures, be happy with that. you will gain more knowledge in the safe zone letting guys talk about everything airsoft than standing in a field taking pictures. you'll will likely get bored of both. on the field can be extremely slow depending on the event. in the safe zone, you'll get overloaded with multiple stories, gun talk, tactics and more stories. some get repeated. lol

be patient and wait out the days until you are 18.

See you're a good kid and all but if we made exceptions then every kid would want to be an exception too and if something irresponsible gets done well since the kid in question is a minor is therefore not accountable for their actions.

Thank-you for understanding and not bitching that it's a "long wait" and "you're sooooo responsible" or that your daddy is a "Sergeant-Major" in the infantry (which BTW doesn't exist as a rank only a position).

If you just ask nicely and explain your case to the field owner I'm sure most of them would have no problem letting you become their "war photographer". You'll get exposure to the community and when you're 18 will be more trusted and well known, and trust me that goes a long way for airsoft in Canada. You'll appreciate it a lot more.

As for now, all I can say is pick up a job (you'll need the money), do well in school, and put your money in an "airsoft savings account" (in addition to a college fund) that you can liquidate when you turn 18 (I'd have suggested Mutual Funds a few years ago however a 3 year GIC or just a standard savings account is good too).

If you really feel the need right now to pick up some gear. Pick some that you won't grow out of and that might be useful. Boots and clothing if you don't think you'll grow anymore, otherwise goggles, killrag and such are good pieces of kit to have since they're basically "one size fits most".

Even an underaged player. But an unarmed one............ ugh. About to dealt with this with my girlfriend, she wanted to see me do my thing at an airsoft game, yet realized she'd likely just give me away, so I decided to just sign her up for an airsoft game this Saturday and have her with me all day to experience airsoft. Should be fun, at least I was able to train her last weekend on shooting techniques.
Yea, it depends on the player I think. Some people work well as a duo... others don't, absolutely has to mesh with your play style. I like knowing that there is someone watching my six, especially in a ghillie where your peripheral drops a bit. However thats just me.

Make her a ghillie amigo !! <grin>

Ya that is another good idea and I completely agree with the exeptions part and ya I have some loans to pay back already (my dad sets an extremely high interest rate bankers haha) so I have to pay those back first but savings accouts are a good idea thanks for the support I will keep doing my research and playing woodsball (paintball not my favorite but it may help)

Hey Kit and StupidDeep, when you decide to upgrade your guns do as the people on this forum direct you. My gun is just as good (or better)on the field as any of the others I play with because I just listened to the folks right here. Many have had these great guns wreck on them after upgrades that I play with all because they don't research. Take the time and search in the forums to find your answeres and remember that the limit is not the goal, fps wise.

My upgrades
6.03 tbb 363mm
nozzle
polycarbon piston
bearing piston head
bearing metal spring guide
metal bushings
m100 spring
