So what age is a "young gun?"

When I started playing paintball I was 16 and almost always one of the youngest players at the field. Now, kids have made their professional debut at only 14! What do you consider a "young gun?"

Not all of them. That's one of the reasons I wanted to see what you guys think. Some are 16 and under and I have a friend who runs a young guns team who thinks even that is too old.

I say 16 and under because you can't have a job or drive etc so your still young and require help.

16 and under, the way it was when I played YG
15 and younger was annoying imo. NPPL's YG division seemed solid to me actually, PSPs...not so much
