Q: Why are there these UKARA rules?
A: For your safety and to prove your character. The Airsoft Guns that members use look very realistic. if you were seen in public with one of these guns the Police would not be able to tell the difference and would treat it like a real weapon. UKARA are rules about being responsible is how you use and transport your RIF, so such problems won’t happen and you use your Gun in a responsible manner while on the site.
Q: Does UKARA make me legal?
A: No. UKARA is a scheme setup by the retailers. It does not have legal standing. However, it shows you are being responsible, and therefore, if you do come into contact with the police it will help. – Unless you are being stupid, in which case it will not help you at all. Being stupid DOES include leaving your RIF on display or using it ANYWHERE other than a UKARA registerred site, Yes, this includes your garden!
Q: How old do you have to be to register with UKARA?
A: You must be 18. However a parent or guardian can join UKARA on behalf of their child. The adult is responsible for the RIF and owns it. The child can use it n the site, but the adult stays resopnsible for the use of the RIF.
If you have any questions or not sure about anything you must speak personally with Dave Ridgeway while on the site. He is the manager in charge of Airsoft and he sets all the rules. These FAQ’s are an interpretation of when he has said in the past.
