Under 18?!?

I was wondering if you have to be over 18 to buy a marker or paint from vendors at the event. It's not a problem for me but I was just curious

It depends, really. Who the vendor is, how old you look, who really gives a **** and who does not.

You can buy paint, however, I think the only thing with age restrictions is the tank and the gun. Otherwise, hoppers, paint, barrel, masks, etc, those can all be bought by under 18.

I can't find any hard info on it, they aren't classified as firearms, they are classed with BB guns and as far as I know you have to be 18 to buy a BB gun. If anyone actually knows then please post. All I can do is assume that since you have to be 18 to buy a BB gun at a store you have to be 18 to buy a PB gun as well. I am not sure if vendors are allowing people under 18 to buy guns.

State law in Illinois is that you must be 18 or older to buy one. But when I was about 14/15 i bought a gun at psp chicago without any problems. That was like 4 years ago, so idk if rules or restricts have been made or not.

Act confident as you walk up and don't give them a reason to ask your age.
