No problem, every looks at it from a legal/ solicitors point of view and forget it's the police who get there first. It's not really responsible people need to worry about. Funnily jonny criminal tends to be more interested in the real thing rather than a gun shaped sewing machine. Personally the whole VCRA is rubbish and protect no one.

From my understanding you are just as well defended if you have a site membership as Josh said, it's more to prove that that is why you have the RiF's and that you have not bought one simply to rob people and such aha.
 
If you're a long standing airsofter and site owners/marshals know that you are a regular i would guess that those people would be just as good defence as UKARA itself.
 
I wouldn't know for sure so don't hold me on this but i would guess that since you have bought it yourself and given it to you son, there wouldn't be a problem as you're his parent/guardian, the law does say you need to be over 18 to PURCHASE not to own so on a technicality it should be fine.
 
But i would assume if you give it to him and he causes trouble with it, you would be just as accountable for his actions as he is, since from the laws point of view you have given it to him since he cannot purchase one himself, you're still technically the person responsible for the gun as it was purchased by you.
 
 
Also remember that UKARA is mainly just for retailers defence, and used by you to purchase a RiF.
 
(can't guarantee this info is correct so if I am wrong please correct me)


Actually, anyone over ten years of age is responsible for his other own actions. Ukara/ site membership is really for the purchase of guns. Nothing In the legislation states that you need anything to own the weapon. Ukara is a safeguard for retailers only. Simpleruleof thumb is this. Don't piss around with replica weapons, use them sensibly and you will be fine. Oh this is for the children, not the adults who use this site. A parent is not responsible for their child's actions with an airsoft gun unless you are the one directing their actions. I.E, son go and piss off the neighbours by pointing that at them. It's a poor example but sufficient. Remember this, many of the self proclaimed airsoft lawyer forget this very important fact. It's going to be some like me or they rest of my old bill colleagues who find themselves there first. If the kid gets nicked then it's going to be a long time cooling your heels in a cell.
Final message is enjoy yourselves, teach kids to be responsible when playing and ukara won't help you if you get nicked. ITS NOT A LICENCE!
Too right josh. Bloody boring subject.
