UKAPU: Changes to UK firearms law- PCB 2015-16
Matt Furey-King from the UKAPU has an update on the proposed changes to the Firearms Act following the law commission report: Although the law commission firearms law report was released only two months ago, the Policing and Crime Bill 2015-16 has had its first reading in the UK parliament.

Matt Furey-King from the UKAPU has an update on the proposed changes to the Firearms Act following the law commission report:
Although the law commission firearms law report was released only two months ago, the Policing and Crime Bill 2015-16 has had its first reading in the UK parliament.
In simple terms, this bill will (amongst many other things) specify the muzzle energy threshold which defines an airsoft gun from an air rifle. In a way it sets legal power limits for airsoft (1.3J, or 375fps with a .20g BB, for fully automatics. 2.5J, or 520fps with a .20g BB, for semi and single action). Previously this was a grey area in UK law. Local legislation will still apply in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
“This Government Bill was presented to Parliament on Wednesday 10 February 2016. This is known as the first reading and there was no debate on the Bill at this stage.
The date for this Bill’s second reading debate has yet to be announced.
If the bill passes second reading and is committed to a public bill committee the membership of the committee will be published in Votes and Proceedings and posted on this page under ‘Commons Public Bill Committee’. The soonest this can be is the Thursday following second reading of the bill, but it may be later.”
Whilst we welcome legislation which clears up the legal position of airsoft, we are sceptical of some of the wording of the bill. No airsoft replica is ‘only’ capable of discharging plastic projectiles. All of them can fire steel and glass BBs. This fact could arguably make the airsoft exception worthless as no airsoft replica could meet the requirements.
Contrary to the law commission report (based on our feedback), they have also ruled 8mm airsoft out of the exception.
We are still seeking clarification of the position of variable power devices such as HPA driven replicas, which can well exceed the specified 1.3J threshold if desired.
UK Airsoft Players Union intends to, at a minimum, submit evidence during the committee stage of the process. Please keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates https://www.facebook.com/UKAPU/

After a winter offensive that left Imperial troops on the West coast cutoff from Imperial High Command, General Kim has decided that the best defense is a good offense. With that in mind Imperial troops are maneuvering to take over the only water filtration plant still operational in Southern California. General Kim plans to deprive Rebel Troops of their most basic necessity, water, and use it as a weapon to control the entire region.

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:
Dear Arnies Airsoft news,
Saturday’s skirmish at Norwich was well supported with 10 brand new airsofters attending and Sunday’s Milsimmers spent all day exploring new territory.
Sadly, after actually trying to play on the site for the first time after the thinning it was soon obvious that a huge amount of work is needed just to be able to move around the site safely. We have had to make a tough decision as to whether we are actually able to do this and have come to the conclusion that with the site being a two hour journey away from our base, it would be impractical to put in the amount of work needed without neglecting our other sites.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported us at Norwich, we hope that we will continue to see you at our Tuddenham site in the future.
This weekend we have a Filmsim/Milsim Lite event at Tuddenham – “El Chapo – Breakout Part 1”. See below for scenario. We will be on site from Friday Evening, as usual camping is free and we will have a fully stocked shop set up, with another £1000 worth of stock here for the weekend.
The following weekend we will be at Eversley for “El Chapo – Breakout Part 2”, scenario below. We will be on site as usual from Friday evening with free camping, a full shop and catering on site.
Don’t forget that we are back at our Hertfordshire site from March, running regular monthly open events on the first weekend of each month.
We have a new website almost ready to go live, and we’re asking for help with pictures for it. If you have any recent pictures from any of our sites, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll try and include them on the site – we’re particularly looking for general, wide angle pictures to give people an idea of what the sites look like and what we do rather than close ups of individual players.
Tuddenham Filmsim/Milsim Lite “El Chapo – Breakout Part 1”
Location: Border of Texas and Mexico, just outside El Paso
Scenario: The Drug Kingpin “El Chapo” is being held along with several of his gang members in Juarez Prison, just outside of El Paso. His remaining gang members plan to execute a daring raid on the prison to bust him out.
Team ID: Ideally teams will be identified by their clothing, armbands will be used if necessary.
Eversley Filmsim/Milsim Lite “El Chapo – Breakout Part 2”
Location: Border of Texas and Mexico just outside El Paso.
Scenario: The Drug Kingpin, ‘El Chapo’ has escaped along with a large number of his gang from the Juarez Prison, just outside of El Paso. This organized break out has left a number of prison guards and Federales dead. They have made rendezvous with a number of his gang member and are hold up in an old deserted mining concern on the border with Texas.
The Texas Rangers have also heard of the break out and want ‘El Chapo’ for a number of crimes in Texas. This is only going to lead to blood shed.
