Private field inquiry

Hey

So recently I found a post online that a small group is doing airsoft in in their own property like 70 acre big.

My concern is that

1. Are they legally allowed to play in their own property?
2. Majority of them are 16 so is that something to be concerned about
3. Do they have to get permission or notify the authorities to prevent issues

This is in Ontario.

Any feedback is greatly appreciated with source.

Thanks

If it is your private property you can play airsoft on it all you want.

More around ASC posts, just search.

70 acres is huge, if you're away from anyone and anything, I doubt anyone will ever know.

Can I ask you a serious question? How much sand can you fit in your vagina?

Yes you can technically play on private property. That is of course there are municipal by-laws specifically preventing you from doing so. The land owner and also the person who is running the group, if they are an adult could be held responsible if there is an incident. They should consider getting proper insurance. Best to play on private property with only age of majority individuals. As long as all reasonable precautions are taken parents are allowed to put their and others kids at reasonable risk. Things like pools, trampolines, etc, are all deadly if used improperly, so is jumping off of your roof. If adequate precautions are taken, such as proper safety gear and environmental hazards controlled then it's in the gray. Honestly, if all of their parents are okay with it, reasonable precautions are taken and there are no laws being broken, then in a nutshell, yes it is okay. That being said there are many, many, many things to consider. Neighbors, weather, wildlife, etc, can all play factors. We used to play on our own field in Alberta. There were no adverse bylaws, adults only and no one at unreasonable risk, not to mention the local authorities knew of us, where we were and what we were doing. Many municipalities in Ontario have a no discharge of firearms law. But they must be within the city boundaries for that to be in effect. Many larger or rural properties are not.

If you feel someone is at unreasonable risk or laws are being broken, I'd recommend you contact local authorities for information.

On that note; airsoft is like any game or sport, it's not a scary, ultra dangerous thing, as long as adequate precautions are taken. You've got a better chance of being seriously hurt playing backyard football, as long as proper eyewear is being utilized by the players.

Thanks for the answer. This isn't my field just came across this field. I usually go to fields where there are age majority and waiver forms. But this is run by minors and didn't want it to appear in the news and become another hit to the airsoft community.

I want some proper procedure so I can inform them and make the field more official and less likely to get shut down.

Why don't you do it differently?

If it's a group playing responsibly out of the public eye why do you need to be the airsoft police?

The government has no place in the 70 acre fields of the nation.
