21CA-ACO Recommended Airsoft Safety Procedures

The intended purpose for these rules is to provide an environment for the Michigan airsoft industry
that is safe and positive for the general public and law enforcement agencies in the state of Michigan.

*** If a police officer or other law enforcement officer approaches you, the proper response is to drop your airsoft replica and obey every command given. Failure to do so could result in physical harm and/or prosecution. You must obey law enforcement. ***


TRANSPORTATION
1.   All airsoft replicas should be transported in a hard case with use of a lock. Magazines, clips, and ammunition should be stored separately. If a hard case is not available, a lockable fabric carry case is the next preferred choice. Again, ammunition and magazines should be stored separately, not in or on the case. If neither of the first two choices is available, the original box should be used, with magazines and ammunition stored separately. Never transport your airsoft replica without appropriate containment and consult your local laws regarding the transportation of firearms, for the safest method(s) of transporting your equipment.

2.   A red or orange flash hider, barrel cover/plug, or painted barrel should be present on the airsoft replica when being transported.

AREAS OF PLAY
1.   Airsoft should not be played on public property, such as public or state parks, schoolyards, shopping malls, parking lots, etc. If you are arrested for brandishing an airsoft replica in public you can be charged and prosecuted as if you were brandishing a real firearm.

2.   All airsoft events of any type held on commercial property should first receive written consent from the landowner and inform local law enforcement prior to the event. Boundaries for the event should be clearly marked for players, and when appropriate, surrounding neighbors should be notified of the event.

3.   Residential and private property owners should use their highest discretion when airsoft replicas are used on their property, in order to maintain a fun, safe environment for everyone involved. High-risk areas, like front yards, highly populated communities, areas near roads, and the like should be avoided for the safety of neighbors, passersby, and law enforcement.

SAFETY
1.   Eye protection should be ASTM F 1776-01, ANSI 87.1 2003 (civilian), or MIL-V-43511C (military) rated and should be worn at all times when using an airsoft replica.
2.   All airsoft replicas should be emptied and switched to “SAFE”, with magazines removed, when not in use.
3.   All airsoft replicas and equipment should be stored out of the reach of children.
4.   Any individual under the age of 18 years should not have possession of an airsoft replica without parental consent.
