So I found a guy on Instagram who has a container of glass BBs and posted a picture of them. On the bottle it clearly states “Glass and aluminum BBs are for target practice only. Not intended for airsoft game play,” yet this guy uses them in his sniper rifle (because “they feed horrible in…
Don’t we pay the marshals to deal with cheaters? As much as being potentially dangerous, this guys appears to be a straight up dick.
….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?
