Any UKARA airsofters?

I was wondering if there were any UKARA members here who could help me out.

I'm studying in London for the year and am looking to get an AEG and GBB and do some airsofting here in the UK. There's a whole lot of VCR bill stuff here that I don't quite understand/is a pain to deal with, so I was wondering if anyone here could help smooth out the process for me.

Are you you signed up on Arnies yet? Scads of VCRA Q&A there.

Not in the UK but as i understand it you have to buy from a retailer.

The VCRA relates to sales, imports, and manufacturing. You can go to a site and rent and play without becoming a registered skirmisher.

Without going into massive detail the folks over there have a self policing system like our age verification run by the sites and players. Except their setup is recognized by the government at all levels.

There's are classified threads on the UK sites. 90 (pounds) for a new JG G36, 120 used TM G3 SAS, 500 for a Systema PTW CQB-R package, 200 used VFC AK-74U package. I think you're getting the picture.

The only painful part will be leaving it all behind.

Yeah, I'd really rather purchase than rent. That said, it looks like getting on the UKARA list is going to be tough/inefficient since I'm only here for the year. Do I need to be on the list to use the classifieds?

I guess I'm asking for a way to bypass the system. Sketchy, but bah you guys all know me here.

You can see the Arnie's classifieds no sweat. Getting registred is not as much as a burden as our age verification. The law is aimed at retailers not the public at large.
