When I was thirteen I was really into airsoft wars with friends, yet I constantly had to borrow from friends since my overprotective parents never allowed me to own one myself. That was about four years ago, and recently I've picked back up on airsofting in the summer. My friend told me I'd be able to buy one at age 17 since he was able to do the same thing at a store without having to show ID or being asked about his age. However, knowing my parents, I'd be willing to bet that before I buy one I'll have to have some sort of proof that says I'm allowed to own an airsoft gun legally at seventeen. While I'm fairly certain that 18 is the legal age for buying one according to national law, I can't find any law specific to the state of Texas about ownership. Anyone knowledgeable about airsofting laws?

It has ALL of your answers.


Trust me, I've been doing that. All the results state the age for buying, not ownership, which is what I'm looking for.

I'd assume they are likely the same.

Think through this with me

You buy cigarettes at 18 and can't use them prior
You buy alcohol at 21 and can't use it prior


Hmm....

18

My friend has owned one since he was 13.

I didn't even know there WAS a legal age on airsoft guns. I'm still pretty sure there's not, at least here in Florida anyways.

I think its 16. Airsoft is lame anyway.
This is why I don't like arguing on the internet.

There isn't a legal age to own an airsoft gun or smoke cigarettes, or even drink alcohol here.

Yes, you have to be 18 to buy cigarettes and 21 to buy alcohol, but you can smoke or drink or play airsoft at any age.

Of course, whoever buys you the stuff can get in deep shit. You won't get in trouble.

Don't be a pussy. Use a real gun.

edit: NAh! NAh! No you didn't just post a variation of what I posted!

Never mind, you posted that like an hour ago. I'm an idiot. But someone should make an Insanity Wolf or something of that.

I also have hairy butt cheeks, I once shaved a letter 'W' on each cheek, so that when I bent over it spelled WoW.
