  • Guns: CZ 75D Compact (CO2)
Hey all, i just joined primarily cos i have two questions about the airsoft laws.

Firstly I already own a CZ 75D compact CO2 gun (http://www.gunstar.c...mpact-A7758.jpg), it was bought by my father in 2009 (i was 17 at the time), however he does not have a UKARA membership, (and i don't think he even knows anything about it).
So am i right in saying that technically he broke the law in buying that gun, but i am not breaking the law in owning it?

Secondly i want to ask about collecting, I like airsoft guns and would like to buy more for the sake of collection, i am not interested in playing skirmishes or anything like that, so i won't be able to get a UKARA number. So i cannot collect (RIF) guns legally?

Then the bottom line is, i can't have airsoft guns unless i plan to shoot people with them? :huh: The government sucks.

that is essentially it.
If you are looking for a collection that doesnt fire, I'd look into deactivated firearms, but it's going to be more expensive

Send the doctors home, I'll be doing the operating around here.

 

Resident Patrol Base Techy, any questions about PB, message me and I'll do my best to answer.

Reenactment is a valid defence under vcra. Just need to be a member of a reenactment group.

The only defences are Skirmishing, Reenactment, Theatre use as prop, Film use as prop and Television use as prop.

Hope this helps
