1. Introduction

  1. Description: Airsoft as defined by the Lower Mainland Airsoft Group is a recreational activity where guns shooting plastic rounds are used for gaming. Airsoft guns use 6mm or 8mm plastic pellets. The LMAG enforces muzzle velocity limits as outlined in section 7 of these rules.
  2. Code of Honour: Airsoft relies upon a sense of honour that places the responsibility for fair play on the player. Highly competitive play is encouraged, but never at the expense of mutual respect among competitors, adherence to the agreed upon rules, or the basic joy of play. Protection of these vital elements serves to eliminate unsportsmanlike conduct from the field of play. Such actions as dangerous aggression, belligerent intimidation, intentional infractions, cheating or other win-at-all-costs behaviour are contrary to the code of honour and must be avoided by all players.
  3. Event Organizer: The event organizer may modify rules relating to game logistics in order to suit the event. Any such change must be established before competition starts.
  4. General vs. Specific Rules: Many of these rules are general in nature and cover most situations. However, some rules cover specific situations and override the general case.
  5. Safety and weapon handling rules have no exceptions.
  6. Additional rules specific to a host field may apply.
