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.





#263869 Parents buying RIFs for under 18's who play regularly.

Posted by Jam_Man on 13 January 2017 - 01:46 PM


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.

Indeed after the long debate on the over 18s thing the facts to me are:


1. It illegal to sell to Under 18's

2. Its illegal to sell to anyone over 18 unless they have a defence.


So the shop have interpreted that having a son who plays airsoft is the parent's defence, and whether that would stand up in court is in my opinion doubtful although you can see why they would think it was acceptable.

Youve missed the point a little, its not an under18 buying it. he is having it gifted to him. So that part on its own is fine.


The issue here is that the buyer, his parent,  who is old enough doesnt have a defence of their own, but the shop deem it ok to sell because they are going to gift it to someone who does play airsoft.

That was my take on it as well.

G&G Predator


Back up / Loaner 2nd rifle.


Was looking at these before getting my first RIF so got one as a back up and so it makes it easier to drag a mate along.

#257988 Membership help

Posted by Jam_Man on 03 November 2016 - 07:51 PM

Ok thats no problem mate thank for the info, i just didnt really understand it & what kind of way it worked but that helped to understand it better#


Ukara is just one way of proving a defence, and its thorough, if you are on the Ukara database a site has confirmed you have played there 3 times in over 56 days. If you have played that much at yours then you can get added to the Ukara database easily enough.


However if you have a membership at the site yet havent played those 3 games in that period to qualift for "full membership"  you can still use your membership as a defence. For example if you had membership cards at 2 or more sites and hadnt played 3 times at any of them you wouldnt be eligible for Ukara registration, but its still a good enough defence to buy a RIF, but expect to provide evidence and ID etc.


Patrolbase for example do not require every buyer to have Ukara, in fact if you play just once at their site and get a form signed to show you have, and then pay a membership fee in the shop you can buy a gun on the very first day you have played. The defence is you have played airsoft and they have rock solid proof of it.


Ukara is a great tool for retailers to have, but as long as you can prove you airsoft they will take that as a defence, although you will have to contact the store etc to provide the evidence so its a little more involved.

#254895 Beginner Loadout under 100

Posted by Jam_Man on 28 September 2016 - 11:26 AM

On one hand you are saying dont look down on others because of their dress then nicely flip straight over to telling me not to give advice because I'm pretty new to it myself. Nice.


Sorry but I'm allowed an opinion, and it stands whether you agree with it or not.


I never said it was a necessity or important, I said with the low cost I dont see why you wouldn't, and that I personally wouldnt go in non-camo. I also said I wouldn't turn my nose up at someone who didnt.

#254875 Beginner Loadout under 100

Posted by Jam_Man on 28 September 2016 - 06:33 AM

If you go to an event and you are the only person dressed' differently' you are likely not going to feel comfortable irrelevant of how people might feel. Thats just life and for the sake of £8 I dont see why people wouldnt buy something suitable.


Dont get me wrong Im not saying everyone has to wear MTP camo, if someone has a pair of hiking trousers or the like then definitely wear those if you dont want to spend the money. However I dont see the point in turning up to a woodland game in tracksuit bottoms or jeans, that doesnt mean Im turning my nose up at anyone who does.


The two skirmishes IVe been have been at a site thats fairly laid back, certainly not milsim level and 99 % of the people are in camo.  One game there were 110 people there and 25 people were first timers who rented guns and even then there were only a couple not in camo, or at least "combats". In fact many of the new players rented camo overalls at a higher cost than a pair of trousers would have cost anyway.


I dont agree milsim is the only time clothes are part of the game, many go to normal Airsoft because of the gear and the feel of the game, if everyone was running around Woodland/Outdoor games in jeans it wouldnt hold the same attraction to me thats for sure.


Airsoft isnt playing soliders? Hmmn, I think Airsoft is very much like that, and whats wrong with boys wanting to play war, its built in to us :)

Innovative but daft.


Would be better if you had a system that could detect a hit and inflated a big read DEAD balloon  :D

#254537 Accessories for Krytac

Posted by Jam_Man on 24 September 2016 - 10:40 AM

Hey Guys I have a Krytac Trident and looking to pimp it out a bit with a few accessories. Any thoughts on what I should get? Maybe a scope?


Did you buy the CRB ?


I got the CRB mk2 and had to use tape on the hi cap mag that it came with as it was so wobbly. Surprised as its a high spec rifle they could package it with a magazine that fitted so poorly.


Not intending to use it anyway as going with midcaps.



That's a fair point. Typically mid range forestry environment at my local site. Maybe an iron sight will do for now but may need a Foregrip. Can anyone send me any recommendations of what I would need?




You will need a panel on the bottom of the key mod hand grip like these



Then you can fit a grip to it.

Have ordered an angled foregrip and a cheap reflex sight for now.
