Alright good to hear that although you should have posted in the "introduction thread" that's stickied at the top of this section.

Best thing you can do in 2 years is ask a field owner if you can show up and shadow a game. Some owners may even let you play at 16+ (with parental waiver) however note it's up to the field owner and their word is final.

You're off to a good start here. Keep it up and you'll be a welcome addition to the community. Not like those kids who think the sport is "dying" and their involvement "now" is good. At least you're waiting.

Welcome aboard!! for the next couple years, you should concentrate on stockpiling a shiteload of everything you'll need other than a gun, such as BDU's, boots, and all that good stuff. L473ncy is right, your off to a good start, it's nice to have people who take the time to introduce themselves and get to know the community.

Nah, just that he needs to save up a bunch of cash for guns.

...although not buying gear until you decide on a gun is a good idea as well. You don't know what setup, vest, pouches you'll need until you choose a gun or gun family.

ah, gotcha. Yes, that all is very true, but since he's got such a good head start, he might as well take full advantage of it.

get a good pair good combat boots, they are pretty cool and you can use them on winter even if you are not interested in airsoft anymore.

Also, he could be like me and allofasudden hit a series of growth spurts. Those are great.

If you read the FAQ's you'll note that M4/16 and AK's are the most common so if you pick either of those you'll pretty much be good to go.

However yeah it's probably best to pick a gun and all the associated gear (chicom rig for AK or Chest rig for M4) when you're around 17 (also so that you're almost out of that growth spurt age) so when you're 18 you can just go to the classifieds and say I want that ______ and buy it.

For now the only thing I can offer you is to read around on this forum and understand the community and why things are done the way they are. I was 15 when I joined actually (made an ass of myself my first few posts but thats another story).

Really the only thing I suggest buying *right now* (that is if you have that "I want it now" urge) is stuff thats one size fits all (radio, killrag, mask/goggles etc.). Otherwise just wait till 18 and AV'ed and see if you can buy a bunch of stuff and get a deal on it (you never know some guy might be selling a bunch of stuff and offering cheaper/free shipping (or extra freebies) on multiple purchases.

Once you think you've stopped growing you can get boots, BDU's and such. Don't think about skimping out on boots and good insoles (I actually use McKinley hiking boots with "superfeet" insoles) your feet deserve it, I mean they support your weight all/most of the day, and are what help you to move around and such.
