 bought a TM VSR 10 and had them install the upgrade parts in it, they shipped me the gun in good time along with the packaging and parts replaced. Very nice and they give you points for buying stuff which you can use for discounts on other products. Haven't had an issue with them.

Bear in mind that this is the retailer that will sell anyone who asks a (bogus) VCRA defence that only they accept.

 

Having discovered this, it's not a business that I'll be rewarding again.

Ah, OK. Wouldn't seem to be a very bight thing for a business to do, though.

I'm guessing that the number of times that they've been approached by the State and asked to provide a defence trends towards zero.  Just because an offence is on the books doesn't mean that it's policed.

how does cosplay insurance work

 

They've never said what they're actually selling, and I'd be surprised if there was a real policy behind it.  I mean, what third party liabilities are you likely to incur while toting a toy gun for display purposes?

 

As far as I can see, it's not a real policy and the only purpose is to make extra money while providing themselves with something that looks like a defence but isn't.

On a related note.... how does cosplay insurance work now that most conventions are insisting on no RIF's/gun shaped objects from what Ive seen?

Cosplay has never been a Defence under the VCRA.

It sits on the coat tails of re-enactment or theatrical.

 

 

 

I was at a ComicCon recently, and though most RIFs were SciFi style, they could still be RIFs in the eye of the beholder (especially Star Wars weapons which were originally designed from WW2 weapons), there were also SteamPunkers who had a lot of brass and the odd military type

There was a Cosplay rule set on the counter at the entrance, but I never read it as I just strolled past the queues of paying peasants waving my highly important person wristband

The Slave Leia costume probably helped too.

You jest .... but .....

 

 

(I didn’t cosplay, but I had an hour’s notice with a 5am message, due to a broken arm and smashed face fall incident)

 

 

......  there were a few sights to behold

In various definitions of ‘sights’

I do have photos (of some) when I get around to sorting them
