Actually I found a paragraph from Chapter 36 in the QR&O that covers "recreational activities".
Your going to love this paragraph:
36.05 – USE OF MATERIEL FOR PRIVATE PURPOSES
Except with the permission of the Minister, no materiel may be issued to or used by a member for purposes unrelated to the performance of military duty, recreational activities or his status as a member of the Canadian Forces.
It specifically states recreational activities as usable... if your brave enough, you can stretch your Airsoft to be a "recreational activity"....
I'm not going down that road...but you can ;-)
Every other instantance I could find indicated that as long as you had permission from your chain of command (i.e. CO), your good.
Time to get a letter from God?
