Plenty of fake accounts on facebook though.

The fact they use the same email address and pay pal account and "Steve" doesnt have a real photo of himself on facebook would suggest 'Steve' is just a sock puppet account and Chris Millings is the actual person.

 

However some people have said they have met him in person so who knows.

I have taken this on board and it will not be happening again.

 

Theres another complaint on Pew PEw comminuty today saying this is still going on. It sounds like a parcel might have actually been sent but the fact is he is still using your paypal account. If you are actually two different people.

In Topic: Parents buying RIFs for under 18's who play regularly.

13 January 2017 - 04:09 PM

The key thing is that it's not illegal for a minor to own or use a RIF, only to buy one. 

 

So if an adult of (hopefully) greater responsibility and experience makes the informed decision to buy one for a minor, then that's up to them (obviously, within the restrictions of the accepted defences). If a minor needed a RIF for legitimate video production (e.g. see the huge number of teen youtubers*), the parent should be able to buy it for them.

 

 

 - UKARA and marketing, as per the previous posts above. Retailers are saving themselves effort.

 

Now, I don't think UKARA, BAC, etc. are a bad thing - they are easy and useful. It's just that they can confuse the situation.

 

 

* snigger  ;)

 

 

Retailers arent saving themselves any effort if this method was legal. This shop arent having to bother with either as long as the under 18 gets his parents to buy it for hm. To be fair in this particular case the shop owner knew him and did know he played so there is no suggestion he would be as open to selling to everyone.

 

The reason the rest of the retailers go through the UKARA/proven defence and two tone process is because they have to, not  because its better for them.

Why? Surely, if there's proof that it's being used legitimately, then there's no problem?

 

Minors are able to operate RIFs perfectly fine but selling to the parent of an airsofter adds in a level of responsibility which a minor doesn't have. 

 

All that matters is what the law deems to be acceptable. Selling to an under 18 regular airsofter via a parent sounds like a common sense thing to do, law doesnt always equal common sense though.

 

If it is ok  though I dont know why anyone uses a two tone at a skirmish, even U18s shouldnt need to.
