  1. No news on the face book. Haven't been to their site in a while to ask, but will do.
  2. This event has been cancelled now. I think the venue pulled the plug.
  3. For those interested, Combat Action Games are running another game day at the Pleasurewood Hills Amusement Park near Lowestoft, Norfolk - 11 March: https://www.facebook.com/events/138969043453741/ The last event was definitely memorable. About 150 people in the end. It was surreal going shooting around the tea cups and carousels. Most of the day was spent around a bottleneck point, but when our team was retreated by the marshals and the game play moved into other areas, it got really interesting. A lot of it is a sniper's dream. Here are some players's footage: Drone: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q56b1Q1aP_o Gameplay: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3bnvWCRA7Uo, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtqL6tnYpFY & https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8FNyFsc5fHU I'll definitely be going again! Hopefully see some of you there.
  4. Viper - http://www.military1st.co.uk/products/bvchrigsopsblk-viper-special-ops-chest-rig-black.html Held up well but now replaced with a molle rig.
  5. Had a Heat-ish/Payday-ish kit a little while ago. Was good fun. Next time, I would have a duffel bag with my hydration and fake cash! Though a lot of people though I was doing Hitman....
  6. I can't believe nobody has mentioned this on here yet! I'll be going to Pleasurewood Hills Amusement Park on 3rd December for an awesome looking event: https://www.facebook.com/events/186224191936264/. It's a taster day to see if further, bigger events will happen. We have about three quarters of the park available to play in, including a kill house in the form of a theatre*! Unfortunately, the roller-coaster and chairlift are out of play. Pleasurewood Hills is a small, kitsch park - the kind you only ever go to as a kid but it's not too bad. It has a charm. Is anybody else on afuk going? (*An artists impression is attached of the kill house and new manager )
  7. That viper chest rig has served me well for a little while with no issues yet. Pretty low profile actually! (though I am currently building a plate carrier set up as well)
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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. ⛄
