As a bonus, what do you do about a guy who doesn't offer a surrender? What about a guy who refuses to accept a surrender?

I treat paintball as a training ground for real life. I'd never go into a situation involving deadly force with a question. I go in prepared to do what needs to be done pray I dont have to.

When I started to play the rule was 6 feet or less before you have to offer surrender. to me that's plenty close
Depends. Is it a first offence? Probably needs a reminder if he's a new player. If it's a regular player and is consistently within the surrender zone, talk to the ref and have him ejected from the field for a safety violation.
Shot him. It's his choice to deal with the pain and welt. Just avoid hitting them in the head/face.
That is not dead which can eternal lie,And with strange aeons even death may die.

The kid understood he was wrong and apologized. Safety first is the golden rule. We shouldn't brainwash ourselves that there are exceptions.

My friends dad played once with us, and he grabbed his sons barrel (he stuck it out of a small opening trying to shoot his dad)and his son shots his hand a few times. If you grab the barrel and get shot, it doesn't hurt that bad for some reason.

In a rental game there will be a rule on proximity. We don't have compulsory surrender rules, we just say you cannot shoot someone at close proximity in normal rental games
For surrender and barrel tag some scenarios and big games put these into the rules and if not detailed then it comes down to the players involved
I have surrendered players a handful of times (at least once that I remember was with an empty pistol - so I had to offer surrender or stand in front of them reloading!)
On a few occasions I have surrendered myself. Someone has come up upon me and caught me out
Barrel tag often becomes a subject on the forums after an event when someone is noted to have been barrel tagging
We do not always have explicit rules so can be flexible on what we accept. I support the player that can get close to the opposition and they deserve a quiet barel tag if noone is noticing them
A number of players are happy with flexible barrel tag rules, so you don't have to tap with a barrel, don't have to be loaded, don't have to have a gun in your hand, could have a rubber chicken
Some players however assume the barrel tagger must be cheating - an unarmed tagger must only have got through by impersonating a marshal or playing dead, they want proof that the tagger could have shot them etc
I consider a barrel tag valid (unless they are explicitly cheating such as arm up playing dead)
And a surrender to be an option
