    If it's legal, regardless of the activity, I'm carrying.

    Participating in any game or sport using equipment that can resemble firearms or that operate in the same manner?
    I'm not taking a chance of having a real weapon in play by accident.

    For such an activity I would most likely pocket carry a jframe or my beretta pico. I don't think I would be tempted to reach into my pocket and draw it if my paint ball or lazer tag gun malfunctioned.

    Same here!

    That said, I would never want a real firearm anywhere near those type of activities (same with FoF training).

We kept our distance, but he was coiled to strike, rattler going and everything. After a short discussion, we decided it would be best to kill it or it could be a further hazard. The SEALS and Marines beat feet back to their cars and returned with all kinds of artillery. It was like, "First one back gets the shot!" The first guy back was a SEAL with a 1911. He dispatched the snake with one to the head.

    Speaking of Marines and rattlesnakes, look up "Death On a Sunny Afternoon" - a great video by the late Pat Rogers regarding another since-departed Gunsite instructor, Louis Awerbuck.

    No, particularly since every such venue has very strict rules against actual firearms on the playing field.

I think it's less risky to keep my weapon on my person during the game than keep it in a locker room or out in my vehicle.
    Just one example. There are many others.

    Yeah those have changed a lot. Last time I did it we had AUG-sized guns with big hoppers on top and a CO2 canister attached. There was no mistaking them for a Glock. These, not so much

    My son used to be heavily into paintball. He'd come home looking like he'd gone hand-to-hand with nest of angry wasps. I thought the object was not to be shot but apparently not.

    I wouldn't partake in the game myself. My temperament would be a disadvantage.

    We do not remove firearms for knife fighting class, which is very physical. We do trade real blades for training blades, but the guns stay on.

    So, No I do not disarm for other activities.

    I did disarm a grown man when I was a late teen in our local laser tag, he was creeping up on me, shielding his vest from hits with a barricade, as
    he pied the corner I removed his pistol and shot him in the vest. He snitched on me like a little girl and everyone laughed at him.

    I don't train to fight some street urchin, I train to fight the evil version of myself, and that person scares me, because I know the time I put into my training on how to beat him.

    Why would I give up my personal protection to play at mock-combat? If you are worried about confusing the two hand-held items.....well, nevermind I'm trying to be good today.

    The only place I don't carry a gun is in places that have metal detectors and I don't go where they have metal detectors unless I just absolutely have to.

    I keep my gun in my pocket. Nobody is ever going to know I have a gun unless I have to use it. If I have to use it then I don't care who knows about it.
