Legality issues

If i am looking to purchase 6 or 8 guns and starting a small field on our PRIVATE property in Muskoka. as loong as every one is over 18 is this OK with the law. I am not a complete idiot with this stuff. I know how to make permission sheets and have a lawyers advice but he is not very knowledgable about this and i dont want to give him more work

On Private Property is okay. If it's on YOUR field, only YOU can do whatever you like. (Set 18+ rules, etc.)
It's only 18+ to purchase airsoft guns.

But I am not sure about permission sheets, and all paper work for it.

If you were charging for entrance / field fee's you would need to register the field as a business.

For legal reasons I'd suggest you only invite private persons that you know and trust. If you post public flyers, you on going to want to get a lawyer to writer up a waiver covering anything and everything that could happen, you'll also want to contact an insurance company to cover you in case of liability reasons arising from injury / etc related to the public using your field.

Basically; while it may be private property, you are responsible for everyone's safety that you invite onto the field. If someone slips in your driveway because its icey, loses an eye while playing without proper eye protection, or decides its a good idea to use their zippo to heat up their propane tank... You'd be responsible.

Fucking fail...

Check with your town, there might be bylaws and zoning issues.

Issurance will be an issue as well, since you don't fall into paintball field issurance. A simple waiver will most likely get raped in court if something really bad happens.

Point is, you need to reasearch a lot. Contact other local fields to see how they are set up.

I know there is airsoft insurance available in the U.S., they are the parent company of a few insurers who operate in both countries so there is a chance you might be able to obtain airsoft specific insurance but who knows how premiums will be by comparison.

worst case scenario is you would have to go excess lines but that would turn very costly without a doubt.
