We are now running on a new, and hopefully much-improved, server. In addition we are also on new forum software. Any move entails a lot of technical details and I suspect we will encounter a few issues as the new server goes live. Please be patient with us. It will be worth it! :)
Please help by posting all issues here.
The forum will be down for about an hour this weekend for maintenance. I apologize for the inconvenience.
Based on what I've been told before attending an airsoft match. The refs claim that if the player isn't following the safety rules in airsoft (in worst case) this can turn into manslaughter. I'm guessing this is one of the reasons why airsoft guns are now called firearms according to (insert location here) law.
(Sub off topic) There were some criminals that brandished BB guns to victims. Sometimes I think the media/antis politically use this as "gun crime rate." [emoji58]
Well, it seems fair to add some pertinent details:
The scene the group was filming depicted a car chase with the actor pretending to shoot a gun out of the window of the car. Bellario had a realistic-looking, unloaded airsoft gun as his prop.
Neighbors were unaware that a movie was being filmed and called police.
Bellario says several police officers responded to the scene.
“They rolled up hot. There was eight of them. They got out. They were all charged up, 'who's the guy driving, where's the guy with the gun?'” he says. “I said, 'I'm right here, we're actors, we're shooting a movie.’ I'm in character still. It was in my waistband. I pulled it out slowly because I don't want to make the wrong move."
The producers of the movie did not have a permit to film in the neighborhood, so police did not know they would be there.
