M4 mags (or similar) on pistols, yeah I get it, binary triggers are a bit "grey" as there's nothing to stop players spamming any aeg trigger, but the one I don't get is banning two-tones or clear gats, EVEN IF THEY'RE PAINTED ? 

I get no one likes ugly b#stard two-tones but if they're painted or cammed up then they look like everyone else's.

Tbh I’m pretty sure if you turned up with a painted two tone and didn’t point out it was a painted two tone just to make a statement. You would be fine.

binary triggers i can sort of get behind as they effectively remove semi. sure you could fire one round then release the trigger pointing at the dirt, but lets face it nobody is gonna do that making 2 rounds the de-facto minimum you're gonna be sending at a target.

 

sure you can get a reasonably high round count with regular spamming, but however fast you can spam on a regular trigger is doubled on a binary trigger.

 

 

box mags on pistols i'm not so sure on, certainly for certain themed events i get it but for regular skirmishing? can't say i agree. sure i hate em, but you just gotta accept some folks don't think that way, and i can't really see them as being particularly enabling of dickish behavior in the same way binary triggers are (as in, what can you do with an m4 mag hpa'd hicapa that you couldn't do with an hpa'd arp9?)

 

the 2-tone thing i don't get at all, so some people are impatient and don't want to wait to get registered? what's wrong with that? again for themed events maybe, but not regular skirmishing.

UCAP have been against 2 tones since they were an idea, the reasoning is that the defence against the VCRA was that airsoft needed RIFs to aid in the suspension of disbelief when re-enacting military/LE scenarios and IFs undermine that concept.

 

i can kinda see that logic. thanks for clarifying.

They've had since 2007 (when the definition was clarified) to come around, like absolutely everybody else (outside of milsim) has.  Points for stubbornness, I guess. 

 

They also still think that 0.2g BBs are a thing, and that Joule creep isn't.

 

I do actually really like that they post their risk assessment (although I can see some issues) and PLI details. I'd like all sites to do this -there's no reason not to, and or else how would you know that they're actually indemnified if the worst happens?

 

However, this is a deal breaker for me: "Players are not to retrieve BFG’s until end of game or area is captured"

 

Nope, they can and do get pocketed.  Given that they reserve the right to bill customers for damage, I'd reserve the right to bill them for lost pyro.  That cuts both ways.

I've heard of a few sites which ask players not to retrieve spent BFGs till after the area isn't contested. It stops dead players whinning about getting shot while picking them up and twats using them as cover

I cannot even imagine how often that kind of thing happens and doesn't get found out.  Not an excuse AT ALL, but the military cannot function without trusting people to a fairly large extent so yeah.. alas.

 

Unless you can somehow disable the 2nd shot binary is definitely a bad idea safety wise and iffy even then given airsofters' trigger finger awareness.  I'd just class it the same as auto personally if I were making rules on when and where it could be used in game, certainly not as a replacement for normal semi/repetition.

 

I do despise the mindset that is attached to HPA pistols with AEG mags, but ban?  Hm.. not sure.  Super grey area on where you start and stop on what's allowed in terms of types of guns and gear.

 

The two tone thing is clearly fuckin bonkers.

You can tell him whatever you want; he is a piece of shit.

An old acquaintance of mine was in one of the Guards regiments; some upper class twit put him in charge of the stores, which he flogged off.  Realising that this might have been a bit of an error, he legged it to France and joined the FFL.  On discovering that everything was done in French or, as he put it, "I thought it was supposed to be a Foreign Legion; everything was in fucking French!", he deserted and made his way back to the UK, where he was promptly arrested and spent some time in the glasshouse.  He is now strangely reluctant to go to France.

Not defending his actions but he's served his time and karma has caught up with him with a vengeance in the form of Motor Neuron Disease. Call him a piece of shit all you want, but I wouldn't wish that diagnosis on anybody.

 

I've never met the bloke, but watched a few vids of his musings on the UCAP FB page (I really must get to the bunker or Valiant) and I like the cut of his jib when it comes to the running of his sites and his thoughts on Airsoft in general.

 

The two-tone thing is odd, but who cares really - new players can rent from the site if needs be.

Motor Neurone Disease is a bastard; however, having that and serving his time do not make him any less a piece of shit.

Truth to tell I've been asked not to do it, face to face, at a local site.  I'm happy to comply with any reasonable request from a marshal, but in this case I politely pointed out that BFGs had been repeatedly stolen at another local CQB site, and there was no way I was leaving it there.  Shrug from the marshal, so I waited for a gap in the action and went in, gun slung, shouts of "Dead man", lots of hand-waving.  In that case, I picked up the BFG then tailed on the end of a queue of their own dead players heading towards their respawn, before going the long way back to mine.  Reasonable people can find reasonable ways of doing things.

 

Alternatively, I'm also happy to just stand there and get shot indefinitely in order to keep an eye on pyro. Unless the site is fine with paying for losses that can be attributed to their own policy then, no, I'm not leaving BFGs lying around.

Dragon Valley never allowed repainted two tones because, if I recall correctly, "by repainting a two tone you're effectively manufacturing a RIF".

By painting a 2 tone you are modifying into a RIF, which is a VCRA offence.  But in the current legislation can be tied to a VCRA defence 

In the original VCR bill it was an explicit offence with no defence
