if the parent is involved In airsoft to begin with then sure, bing your kids to a game

but the whiny brats that think should be allowed to play can fuck right off, who really wants some kid and their dad/mom on the field with their softair and civvies? Maybe I'm an elitist but that kinda kills it for me

I cuss alot and act a fool sometimes and I don't want some parent complaining that I'm setting a bad example for their kid, it kinda ruins the spirit of adult fun with the guys that some people like to get out of this activity.

If you want nice wholesome family fun, go play paintball, just my opinion.

Parental participation is the number #1 golden rule for minors and airsoft. You are likely to get a lot further if your parents are right by your side. A lot of people, like myself, have nothing but complete respect for parents that introduce their kids to airsoft in a responsible manner.

Seriously, I really don't understand why kids aren't embracing the idea like hot cakes. I'd have loved to play airsoft with my old man, had I been given the chance earlier in life.
No kidding. If things weren't so patchy between my dad and I right now, I'd have him drive me out to a field every week to go play some airsoft. The fact that he has money AND a car means that my food, field fees, supplies (BB's, gas, batteries), and transportation would all be taken care of. Epic win. Do it, if you can.

You know you can't play but you still insist on getting guns, if you want to do so that's fine, just don't tell us about it we don't care nor do we condone kids owning airsoft.
Amen.

Agreed with pus and Saint. With a parent who is an established player and known by the community, there shouldn't be any issue. I'm sure that most game hosts would be more than happy to allow that, with the caveat being that the kid is under the adult's supervision at all times.

While my son is too young to play, he's attended a couple of games with me at the Mill and locally here in Kingston. He didn't want to play, but he did love being there around all the guys with their gear and guns. Turns out for a 10 year old, he got a hell of a lot of attention at the Mill when he pulled out his TM M4 Boys to show off, all while handling it safely, finger off the trigger, etc... It was a lot of fun for everyone. And I seriously look forward to the day I can play an actual game with him.

However, before you kiddies decided to drag mom or dad off to the airsoft field with you in hopes to play, remember they have to be actually playing with you as well. Dropping you off doesn't count! And a parent unknown to the player community is not likely to make any difference to a host.

WTF?!?!

Go find your own way to games, leave your dad alone...hasn't he already waited long enough for you to leave?...can't cut him a break for a day?

Pay your own way...I bet he has plans for his own money...least of which is watching you piss it away on a game and toys.

I'd bet I could guess the answer if you asked your dad the following questions:

"Hey pops, want to chauffer me around, cover my expenses and wait around while I play a game for the whole day?"

or

"Hey pops, I did all the stuff you asked me to do, could I borrow a couple of dollars to go fuck off and get out of your way for a day?"

As a parent, I can definitely vouch for Option B for the win...

not only that but i'm pretty sure knowing you paid for your own stuff and can get away from your parents for a day is also a win
