I'll never get the whole "If your mom/dad buys it for you, or is there when you buy it, it's OK" thing. Like if you're 14 and you can't buy an M-Rated game, but if your mom stands beside you while you pay, it's all good? Like ok...

I'm not saying that you should be 18 to buy paint, an M-Rated game, etc. You shouldn't have to be. But the idea of it is ridiculous.

Its LIABILITY. It has nothing to do with who can safely use it. Its ALL who can be held accountable when the **** hits the fan. If an adult buys it, they are liable. If a minor buys it, the place selling it is liable.

Do not give your paintball based business to department stores..EVER!!! Get the respect you deserve at your local pro shop because they know you are keeping them in business, unlike Walmart, Target, etc..who could care less if you ever came back.

I'm glad someone made a thread like this! I hate that 18+ policy! I can see needing to be 18 if your going to purchase a marker, but not paint or air.

I mean, I was at WalMart once and I went to purchase a single pod and the guy wouldn't let me! A POD FOR GOD SAKES!

Absolutely ridiculous.

Store policy, they have they items in the system so when you scan the item. It pops up saying D.O.B. If the date isn't entered, it can't be sold. Shop at your local fields.

Also today i walk into Scheels to fill my air tank. I walk up to the fill thing and say to this fat *** ****er "Can you fill this up for me?" and he says are you 18? I say no, but my dad is around the corner so he is with me (thinking that this dumb *** will let me and i will go scott free) and he takes my tank cover off and begins to fill and while he fills it he says your dad can come pick it up after i am done. So i say forget it and he takes a min. and a half to my ****ing tank cover on and i say ill take it to my paintball shop to fill it.

My question to you guys why cant i buy paint and fill air without being 18. Am i going to throw a full DXS 68/45 180$ tank at someone or what. Can you really kill someone with a paintball? I mean for real, i understand a 10 year old asking to fill his steel piece of **** tank up that is passed hydro but come on. I paintball every weekend and i own this expensive *** tank why cant you fill it up? I guess they dont want my 80 bucks for paint.

So all in all what do you guys think of the 18 rule on paint and air? At least my paintball shop lets me buy paint and fill.

Thanks for reading!
you have problems, go to counseling. if you have such anger problems, you probably shouldn't even be ALLOWED to own or use a paintball gun. EVER

Id compare it to buying spray paint(paintballs). Some stores may believe you that you just want to make a sign or that you are spray painting a mural(playing paintball) but others may just think of the stereotypical vandalism that happens(Shooting at signs, animals and people).
You might be under 18 and get away with it, you might not. Stores do it to cover their *****, sad that everyone in the world has to cover for everything they do so jackasses looking for a quick dollar wont **** them over.

its just like buying ammunition/guns/alcohol/tobacco products in the store's eyes. just let them do their thing and id you. because if they sell it to an underage person they could possibly loose their licenses for those products. If they loose that they could potentially loose a fairly decent amount of money in sales. Just because some minor wanted to buy some product without getting proofed, and threw a **** fit about it. The local and state governments even send in secret shoppers that will try to buy such products without getting ID'd or proofed. If that ehappens the store can get slapped with a pretty large fine

At my scheels the service desk has a book that you put your name in and sign, and your parents names and they sign, and a number they can call them with.
