  1. Overall rating (1 - 10): 9 Would you deal with the trader again (Yes / No): Yes Any other comments: Overall decent seller. Good postage. No mucking about.
  2. Sorry, I thought it was. 😊 I have nothing more to add, now. I submit my will to the retail overlords. I'll do whatever they say.
  3. Arguing "spirit" of the law is even worse than arguing interpretations of the law. Obviously, the intention is to reduce violent crime. Playing 3 games in 2 months only provides one, easy way to justify a sale of an item which could be used in violent crime. The UKARA's FAQs say that "it would appear that there is no problem of a gift from an eligible purchaser to a minor". Is it really that different if the parent does have their own, separate defence? If a dad wasn't an airsofter but had a 17 year old that had been airsofting every week for several years, contributed to the community and had a popular youtube channel but wanted a non-two-tone gun, then it's circumventing the spirit of the law to buy them one? I don't know exactly what that store did but can see an argument for legitimacy. Or maybe I am a stupid idiot f*cking up the industry with my words and thoughts.
  4. How do you retain legal possession of a RIF? EDIT: Sorry, that was a bit curt. What I mean is, how is it any different (to the retailer) if the parent was on UKARA and they gifted a RIF to their child.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. Exactly. The defence is the holding of a "permitted activity" (airsoft) but the law does require sufficient evidence. If they can prove the son is airsofting, then it's fine. Sec 37 (http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2006/38/section/37) 4. ... a person shall be taken to have shown a matter specified in subsection (1) ... if— (a)sufficient evidence of that matter is adduced to raise an issue with respect to it; and (b)the contrary is not proved beyond a reasonable doubt. & The Violent Crime Reduction Act 2006 (Realistic Imitation Firearms) Regulations 2007 added (http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2007/2606/regulation/3/made) Regulation 3: (additional defences) 2. a) the organisation and holding of permitted activities for which public liability insurance is held in relation to liabilities to third parties arising from or in connection with the organisation and holding of those activities; ) EDIT: It's also worthy to note the explicit need for public liability insurance. This (generally) restricts the activities to commercial sites rather than back yard shooting.
  8. DPM windie and respirator case (as GP pouch) from British Military Surplus but they're taking their time. 🤔 Also, some thermals and headovers. This Sunday is going to be cold, cold, cold. ⛄
  9. Has anybody had a real look at the new Nuprol Delta range? They seem to be everywhere but I can't find any real reviews. The entry range gun seems like a reasonable alternative (on paper) to the CM16s but I can't properly tell if it would be in practice. I don't know much about Nuprol but there seems to be mixed sentiments about their different products - as far as I can tell, gas = good, gear = bad? Any thoughts?
  10. Or: Oh, I don't plan on using a coupler - it just made me think about where the magazines would go. (They do look super 90's action film, though!!)
  11. Hi, I was just wondering if many people use mag couplers and, if so, how would they be stored? I can't imagine they would fit in double mag pouches.
  12. Last night I tried to change my password from the forgotten pw link an the form kept stating that the two values were different. This worked today on the normal change password page but not sure if they're different - worth a check.
  13. A tool for adjusting your barrel length...
  14. Very impressed with the work in this time frame. I like the data visibility icons (eyes)! The first issue I can see is that the form validation pop ups don't give the requirements of the fields, e.g. the Postcode or nickname fields. Also, the text about the map position being a randomised approximation from your postcode could be included on the sign up page. Great work!!
  15. Haha, yup but it was a rental. Was quite annoying... 😉
