The only exception is at the target range or on a playing field after the game starts. No exceptions. Violators will be asked to leave the park with no refund issued.

3. ALL GUNS MUST BE MAGAZINE FREE IN NEUTRAL AREAS. All handheld or slung guns must be loading magazine free (“Mag Free”) in the staging, parking lot, neutral and camping areas.

Once eliminated from play, players must remover their magazines from their gun, fire 2-3 clearing shots in a safe direction, before proceeding to the elimination area.

7. NO BLIND SHOOTING. Players must see what they are shooting at.

Good catch.

Any original style gas powered airsoft rifles must have a paintball style tournament lock. 

The reason it wasn't brought up originally is that those guns almost unheard of on the field these days.  Most of them are collecters items. 
You are not special. You are not a beautiful or unique snowflake. You're the same decaying organic matter as everything else.
