Weapon Safety in the staging area, parking area or any place not designated a fire zone; ALL WEAPONS will be unloaded, on safe and a barrel-blocking device (BBD, aka “Barrel Bag”) are required for all carried weapons. Otherwise all weapons are to be in a gun bag or container.
|Face and Eye Protection|
Full-seal safety-rated lensed eye protection that meets ANSI z.87.1 standards with eyewear retainer system (Note: the particular style must fully cup your eye area, so as not to have gaps allowing bb penetration). Mesh goggles or eye covering not allowed without a lensed protection over the eye itself but a full lensed goggle with a full seal is the preferred safety equipment. Regular glasses or safety glasses may be worn underneath but not as the primary safety element. NOTE: Shards from bb’s can result from impact to mesh protection and may not provide adequate protection; we therefore recommend goggles with a full seal around the eyes Those wearing eyeglasses may not “STACK” safety glasses over the top of prescription glasses.
Require Helmet/full-face mask system, providing full-seal lensed eye protection with attached nose, mouth, and ear protection. IMPORTANT NOTE: It is still possible to have injuries while using safety equipment.
13, 14, and 15 year-olds
Require full-face protective gear, providing full-seal lensed eye protection with attached nose, mouth protection.
16 and 17 year-olds
We recommend full-face protective gear. Minimum requirements are:
Full-seal safety-rated eye protection that meets ANSI z.87.1 standards with eyewear retainer system (Note: the particular style must fully cup your eye area, so as not to have gaps allowing bb penetration). We reserve the right to deny unsafe eye protection.
Full Face mask to cover the nose, ears and cheek areas. Full seal mesh goggle system may be worn as long as there is eye lensed protection under the goggle.
Lower full-face protection to nose, mouth, and ears, such as the MATRIX GENERATION II MESH. This only meets minimum requirements. Parents will be required to read our safety recommendations, and agree to be responsible if their minor violates their parent’s wishes, or if a parent allows only the minimum requirement.
18 years old and up
Again, we recommend full-face protective gear. Minimum requirements are full-seal safety-rated eye protection that meets ANSI z.87.1 standards with eyewear retainer system (Note: the particular style must fully cup your eye area, so as not to have gaps allowing bb penetration) or full seal mesh goggle system with eye lensed protection under the goggle. We reserve the right to deny ANY eye protection if deemed unsafe by CZ staff at any time. In addition, it is required that a mouth-guard, balaclava, shemagh or mesh system be worn over the mouth at ALL TIMES on the playing field.
IMPORTANT NOTE: It is still possible to have injuries while using safety equipment.
All AEG airsoft weapons will be chronographed using .20g BIO bbs. ALL HPA airsoft weapons will be chronographed using .32g BIO bbs. As a general rule these are the basic guidelines to follow:
No airsoft gun, with the exception of sniper rifles and DMR’s, will be allowed that creates more than 1.64 joules of impact energy
All airsoft guns (except HPA) will chrono with .20g BIO bb’s provided by CZ. HPA airsoft guns will chrono with .32g BIO bb’s provided by CZ. No airsoft gun will be allowed with a RPS greater than 20.
ALL ENGAGEMENTS WITHIN 15FT should be considered as a Safety Kill”. However, should the intended victim / target choose to engage as a defensive gesture of survival (because you already have the drop on them) only single fire or semi-auto is allowed and only to the torso or hind rear quarters to ensure safety. These will be spoken aloud to the opposing player.
ALL ENGAGEMENTS WITHIN 30FT are to be “Single Fire” only. Violators will be removed from play and possibly the field. All airsoft guns will be chronographed regularly before every CZ event by staff and marked as checked prior to entering the field.
Only Biodegradable (BIO) BBs are allowed for use at all CZ events. CZ Reserves the right to randomly spot check any player’s ammo before, during and after play.
All areas before the Fire Zone (designated by a boundary marker) are considered to be a no-fire zone. All airsoft weapons will be unloaded, placed on safe with a barrel cover while in this area. There will be designated test firing and chronograph areas at the entry point of the field. Eye protection must be worn when outside of all no-fire zones.
All will be clearly identified and explained in the morning safety brief for the borders of the playing areas. Players leaving the designated field boundaries will be subject to any local, county and federal legal adjudication as they may apply to an individual.
CZ has a responsibility to promote the safety for all participants, observers and associations of CZ Airsoft. The following items are strictly prohibited; anyone found carrying any of these items is subject to ejection from the field:
In a system to promote fair and safe play CZ has adopted a “Strike System” currently being instituted on other airsoft fields. Any player’s infraction of policy, rules, safety or conduct issues will be identified by CZ Field Marshall’s and recorded at the Command and Control Point. Infractions of severity will be dealt with immediately. All infractions will be recorded as a “strike” and held on file until the end of the year and noted for historical referencing.
Strikes can be reversed at the discretion of the CZ Safety Czar and Operations Chief at a following and never the day of. All safety violators will be listed monthly to a private airsoft forum of regional fields.
