6. Weapon Handling and Safety

  1. Airsoft guns are 1:1 scale projectile-firing uncontrolled low energy firearms, it is imperative that they be handled as if they are real firearms. The LMAG will enforce the following four vital rules of Firearm Safety:
    1. Regard every firearm as loaded.
      1. Treat your guns as potentially dangerous devices.
      2. Handle guns with care and attention.
    2. Control the muzzle direction at all times.
      1. Continually identify the safest muzzle direction.
      2. Keep your gun pointed in the safest muzzle direction.
      3. Only point a firearm at a practice or game target that you intend to shoot.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger except when firing.
      1. Resist the temptation to put your finger on the trigger when you pick up or hold a firearm.
      2. Negligent discharges will more likely occur if your finger is on the trigger.
      3. Only put your finger on the trigger when you intend to discharge the gun.
    4. Clear every gun prior to re-entering the safe zone.
      1. Before re-entering the safe zone, remove the magazine, fire it 2-3 times to ensure the gun is clear (fire 2-3 shots on semi).
      2. This will also ensure your AEG’s spring is in a decompressed state.
  2. Only display Airsoft guns in public at a legal playing field. Nowhere else.
  3. Transport your Airsoft guns in proper gun cases or bags.
  4. When test firing your gun, do so in a Range Line. Step away from fellow Players, aim the weapon into the field of play away from people and animals. Never fire from behind another person.
  5. Only point a gun at someone when you intend to shoot them while on the playing field.
  6. Only put your finger on the trigger when you intend to discharge your gun.
  7. Disable every grenade and set them all in a closed nylon pouch before entering the safe zone.
