….then, within reason, it’s assumed that it’s allowed.
What I’m referring to is a recent incident. I was playing some CQB at an airsoft site. I was attacking an enemy held area. There was a kill hole in a wall…. I knew there were at least 2 defenders on the other side so I ran to the wall and posted a blank firing grenade through the hole.
I was approached instantly by a marshal who told me that posting grenades was not allowed and another infraction would mean I sit out the next game.
My argument was that If I’m not told the rules at any point, then I cannot be held to blame for breaking them. It’s the sites responsibility to outline what is and isn’t acceptable.
Their argument that ‘it’s common sense’ doesn’t wash, because if airsofters had common sense, we’d be at home knitting, or some such shit. A number of sites I go to (CQB included) allow posting grenades through windows/kill holes, so I feel I was not out of order in assuming that in this instance it would be ok.
Does anyone have thoughts or experiences on this, or similar incidents?
Someone new to airsoft asked if steel toe boots would be suitable for playing in?
My answer to this (recurring) question is that they really are not ideal. I’ve been in the construction industry for over 10 years and have never found steel toe boots to be comfortable. A good pair of hiking boots are much better.
Don’t cut corners on footwear. Uncomfortable, ill suited footwear can be an annoyance that affects your enjoyment of the game, and at worst can be physically dangerous.
