might just go down the 2 tone road saves a lot of bother, mad to think back in 2002 when i started i was using public land but the police knew what i was doing though and worked with em to show em what the sport was about didnt have any bother whatsoever

I think its crap that the government put this system in so we can continue playing airsoft, yeah c'mon guys (I hope you sensed my sarcasm)

Respect the system, UKARA or no airsoft i know which one i would i would go with,

Yes you need to be 18 its the law and ranting and raving about it isn't going to change anything.

this is the problem with people who make these rules from behind a desk they dont see the whole picture, i would of thought a type of gun license would of been the best road to go down instead of getting people to run down the skirmish site and back again and enroll

I think its great, to a member of the public that KWA M9 is F(&^*** real, getting people to go back and forth gets them into the game and with things like the safe zone and when a member of the public comes on site they can understand the respect for weapons.

Yes a lot of people are mature but those people didnt get us into the whole 2 tone business anyway.

again its just a case of the minority

there is something that im not understanding at all.
So, UKARA approved, in a nutshell is only used to buy guns and not related to the fact of owning a gun or not.

I already own several RIFs. I am not UKARA sorted. Can I bring them over here and play with them without the authorities screwing w/ me?

they were owned pre-UKARa but its best to speak to H&M customs about it as they SHOULD be more clued up than us.

Importing any RIF is banned under the VCRA.

The wording of the law states that you cannot Import for any reason, save one of the specific defences.

By bringing them into the country, you would in my mind be importing them.

Thus, you need a skirmishers defence. UKARA is often enough, however, if you do not have UKARA, there are other things you could use to prove you're a skirmisher, things like photographs at sites you have played, testimony from site managers etc. UKARA is not the be all and end all, it is simply a tool to streamline the process of purchasing and to cover the rear-ends of official retailers. I am a skirmisher, I can avail myself of the defence, I just don't have UKARA.

The key thing here, for me, is the definition of "importing", as in, does it apply only to commercial importing, or does simply bringing something into the country count.

Just my two-pence.
