I'm hoping you guys might be able to help me out with something.
I'm doing a presentation for one of my C.E.G.E.P. classes (an anthropology class) on the sport of Airsoft. I'm hoping you guys might be able to give me a bit of the history of Airsoft in Canada. I would like to know how it originally started, some of the basic rules that you guys follow for most fields. What else do you guys equip yourselves with to games, what gear, equipment, camouflage and other items you use. do you guys prefer milsims or skirmishes? What influences your choices of camouflage, is it the country, the weapons, or just a certain theme your going for? Also, where could i find information on radio talk, or the way you guys give out commands? Since I'm a fellow Canadian, maybe just a few comments on the state of the sport in Canada.

If you know any other site that could help me out also, that would be great!
thanks for all your help
Regarding rules, that's dependent on area and field. However, a lot of places where people play have a few basic rules that are the same, or similar. Eye protection is required, and the FPS of guns is usually capped at 400 or 450 for sniper rifles, and lower for close range guns. There are themed games that require people to use certain types of gear, but a lot of people just buy and use whatever they want.
