We help promote the sport of airsoft to the new zealand public, including airsoft safety and NZ firearms law.
There is currently heightened public anxiety towards anything military or gun related following the recent tragedy in Christchurch involving a gunman wearing military-style clothing and wielding a military-style firearm. NZ Airsoft would like to remind all Airsoft players of the following conduct recommendations:
- Do not appear in public spaces in Airsoft clothing or gear. Remove combat vests, holsters and as much camo clothing as practical. The gear may seem cool to you and your mates, but it will certainly not be considered cool by onlookers.
- Ensure if practicing at home that you are not in a situation where you may cause alarm to neighbours or other potential onlookers.
- Make sure you continue to practice lawful Firearm conduct when transporting your Airsoft guns (Taggers) outside of gaming venues.
Players under the age of 18 who do not have a Firearms License cannot transport Airsoft Guns (Taggers).
All Airsoft Guns (Taggers and magazines) must be kept out of public view - this includes not leaving them exposed in a vehicle.
Ensure your Airsoft Guns (Taggers) are cleared and made safe when not in game.
There is never a good reason for breaking the rules - "She'll be right" is not justification for unsafe/unlawful practice.
Working together for Airsoft
We promote Airsoft online to help the public get involved around New Zealand. As we are based in Tauranga we are also able to promote Airsoft at nearby events. You can find us at the Tauranga & Auckland Armageddon expos as well as the Armistice in Cambridge event advertising the sport under the brand “Apocalypse Airsoft“. Apocalypse Airsoft is made up of players from around the BOP and Waikato who are dedicated to growing the sport. Apocalypse Airsoft are also involved in the development of the Airsoft battle grounds at TECT All Terrain Park.
PLEASE NOTE: NZ Airsoft is NOT an Airsoft retailer. We DO NOT sell Airsoft Guns or Airsoft Equipment. We are a promotional business only.
