Right, so earlier this week, I went to go buy an airsoft pistol so me and my buddies could run around and shoot each other (intelligent, yes I know) I get to the counter, and the guy says "do you have some ID" I was like wtf? so I hand him some ID, and he goes "you have to be 18 to buy this" I knew this of course, but I play stupid "oh really? wow. alright well, thanks anyway" I reach to take my ID, and take my time putting my wallet away... he starts to ring it up, tells me my price, and then says "you didn't get it from here"

today, I go to Lowe's (like home depot) to buy some stuff to get to work on refinishing that ibanez project guitar I have. I get to the counter, the girl there scans my wood stain, and asks for ID! I'm thinking crap, not again so I hand her some ID. she looks it over for a very long 15 seconds. Then she tells me I must be 18 to buy it. I'm just like *sigh* "alright, well, I'll just get the other stuff then" (some sanding sponges and a sponge paint brush) she looks at me sympathetically and asks what I'm using it for, I say it's to repaint a guitar. Since I'm wearing my shirt that says "Musician: looking for groupies" it's a believable story. so she lets me get it but just reminds me that I'll need an adult to get other paint supplies next time.

that's not once, but twice in one week that I've gotten away with buying something though I'm underage. Plusa ton of rated R movies, and a M rated video game, but they didn't card me for those.

Milk it while you can cuz once you hit 21 there's nothing to look forward to but death and taxes.

Airsoft is awesome. The pistols don't really give you much of a fighting chance against anyone with a good rifle, but they're certainly fun.

You're the man.

Forget about your sin - give the audience a grin
Enjoy it - it's your last chance anyhow.

Strip clubs don't help loneliness. Good prostitutes do.

That sounds more like a pellet gun.

if you wanna go around shooting each other and wanna have real fun and want the weapons to be the same weight and size as real weapons, i recommend air soft guns.

prices start at $20, they're the actual size and weight as the real thing, and you can buy a pack of 200 bullets for $2. thats a penny a bullet.

these things come in manual, semi-automatic, and fully automatic. they can hold from 12+ bullets depending on the weapon.

pistols hold from 12-30, other bigger weapons such as sniper rifles and machine guns hold over 60. you can also buy clips and when one's out in combat you can change to the other clip.

the great thing about these is if you wear a shirt or a jacket and some jeans, you wont feel any pain but it will hit hard enough for you to know you've been hit. and if they hit your head, they can either do nothing or make you blind, give you a knot, or make you def depending on the strength, angle, and range of the weapon.

my friend owns the rifle on the top right, its meant for long range as you can see. it holds 60 pellets.

i own a pistol, holds 12-13 pellets.

i beat him almost every time.
