I’d never heard of UKASA until now and I’m all over Airsoft like a tramp on a dropped kebab which makes me think the border farce wouldn’t have a fecking clue what it is ! So I’d say if you are using them as a defense then be prepared for lots of phone calls to jobs worth’s who won’t have any idea what your babbling on about !🤦‍♂️

Mmm.  The reason I'm rolling my eyes at UKASA is that they charge £30 which gets you Shooter's Right membership and third party liability cover.  Now, that's not a bad thing in and of itself, and comes out £10 cheaper than individual membership (but more than group costs, and I assume the difference is what's funding UKASA, and again, fair enough).

 

However, where I take issue is UKASA claims that "Therefore Third Party Liability Insurance should logically be applied to the airsoft community in relation to  the players.", based on reading part of https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/the-violent-crime-reduction-act-2006-commencement-no-3-order-2007-firearms-measures and interpreting it to mean that the requirement for third party liability applies to players as well as sites.

 

Not so, if they'd bothered to read on.  A scheme that's essentially identical to UKARA is proposed, which explicitly gives a defence to sellers purely based on site membership and the 3 plays / 2 months criteria, with not a hint that the players as well as the site would have to hold their own insurance.

 

Verdict: sperglords gotta sperg.

Great news, the membership I’m on (Ground Zero) IS UKA’R’A not ‘S’. Luckily I was just being an idiot and looking at the wrong scheme info online 😂 Anyone would think I was new to this 😂

Well, we got to have a rant, you get to import a RIF, so it's all good.
