sportsmanship and your side will be penalized if a game staff member witnesses the
event. (One Exception: 2.6.3)
1.3. Players caught attempting to cheat will incur penalty points for their side, and may be
ejected from the game without refund and barred from future Colorado Milsim events.
1.4. Players who attempt to steal, cause bodily harm, or otherwise break the law will be
referred to local law enforcement officers and barred from future Colorado Milsim
1.5. Subordinate players should observe and respect ranks and the event Chain of
Command (NCO's and Officers).

1.8. No real steel firearms are allowed at all Colorado Milsim events and operations within
2.1. If a player is hit ANYWHERE: you’re wounded. Gun hits do not count. Gear hits do
2.2. When wounded by pellet/rocket/grenade/mine, or otherwise wounded/removed from
combat, players should immediately do the following
a. Wave your red rag above your head momentarily, then attach it to your head in a
SECURE fashion. Expect to be hit multiple times while doing so - in the chaos of
combat fellow players rarely have split-second trigger control. )
b. Please refer to OP Order for respawn instructions.
c. Return to your designated regeneration point.
d. Return your red rag to your pocket/pouch once your regen time is up.
e. It is acceptable to call "hit" or "dead man" during this process, but please keep in
mind most players cannot hear you. Your red rag is the first and most important sign
of being hit.
f. Red ballcaps are not acceptable substitutes for red rags. The red rag rule is
intentionally "inconvenient" so players will not forget. If it helps, add a patch of velcro
to your red rag.

distances less than 30 feet.
2.4. Use the “Bang, Bang” safety Rule

unnecessary harm to an opposing player, AND he/she has the target "dead to

2.4.2. "Bang, Bang!" is a safety call ONLY. It is NOT a way of killing someone
2.4.3. If a player says .Bang, Bang!. to you, you should honor the call and immediately
pull out your red rag. If said player was particularly sneaky, it is appropriate to
honor the kill by "quietly dying" to not give away that player's position.
2.4.4. Do not use "Bang Bang!" in a situation where it could be disputed by a fellow
player. If you do not have the target "100% no chance of survival/dead", closer than
10 feet from behind the opposed player, do not say "Bang, Bang!". DO NOT:
EX 1: You see multiple players from a distance, run though the group yelling "Bang
Bang!" at everyone.
EX 2: You are hidden behind a bush, and opposed player approaches from the
front. You call out "Bang Bang!" before he/she reacts.
EX 3: You come around a bush and immediately face to face with another player
less than 10 feet from you. DO use PARLAY (2.5) instead.
2.5. If two players come head to head and are immediately face to face with another you
can use Parlay. By calling “Parlay” both players must walk out of site and re-engage.

bushes, shallow ditches, and other players are NOT hard cover.
