VCRA News and Player Registration
As you may be aware after the 1st October 2007 it will be an offence to purchase, import or manufacture a RIF (Realistic Imitation Firearm) as outlined in the VCRA. Airsoft guns fall within the scope of being a RIF.
Airsofters can gain an exemption to the act that will allow them to continue purchase airsoft guns, (over 18 yrs only), subject to certain conditions.
To qualify as an 'Airsofter' you must play at least three times a year over a period of not less than two months at a game site that has third party public liability insurance.
Combat South has such a registration scheme in place that will meet the requirements of the VCRA and allow you purchase airsoft guns after the 1st October 2007 once you are registered.
The CS scheme will cost £10.00/year to cover the cost of administration and a photo ID card.
Registration with CS will also give you other concessions. Details can be found here on the Player Registration Card, which is available for purchase online.
Alternatively you can download the CS Player Registration Form and bring it with you to the next game along with some photo ID (driving licence, passport etc).
