    i heard a group of airsofters were going to talk to the government on the 17th of June about making airsoft legal. but they never mentioned that it became legal on their site. does anyone know?
    because.. well.. hell! i want to play airsoft!

    Thanks.

    No! Airsoft is not legal in the Netherlands yet!!

    To my knowledge the meeting was a succes but you have to understand that adjusting the law is gonna take some time, if infact it will be changed at all!

    Why not ask this question on the dutch airsoft forums?

    You can still play airsoft in belgium with the many dutch teams, if you are old enough!

    (Ga gewoon naar airsoft.nl)

    yeah its a shame, even if airsoft is made legal in Holland you probably wont be able to play because you'll still be required to be over 18 to play and buy airsoft guns

    just start collecting the gear you want and sign up when your old enough is the only thing you can do.

    In belgium you've got some airsoft clubs that you can join when you're 16. Maybe if you live close to our border...

    Volgens mij is het verboden omdat de Airsoft wapens teveel gelijkenis vertonen met echte wapens. Hierdoor kunnen ze in een overval gebruikt worden.

    (Dat heb je ook met van die miniatuur speelgoedpistooltjes waarmee je van die plastic balletjes kunt verschieten. Ze zijn ook verboden omdat ze teveel op echte wapens lijken. En dat terwijl 'gewone' luchtdrukwapens die met metalen kogeltjes schieten gewoon VRIJ VERKRIJGBAAR zijn vanaf 18 jaar. Pff... )

    Ik wist overigens niet dan paintballen verboden was in Nederland.
