What is UKARA?
UKARA stands for United Kingdom Airsoft Retailers Association.
"UKARA was formed as a response to the drafting of the Violent Crime Reduction Bill in 2006 which later became an Act of Parliament.
UKARA is an association of UK Airsoft Retailers brought together to protect themselves from prosecution and enable a safe method of selling Realistic Imitation Firearms ( RiF's ) to the largest of the permitted purchaser groups in the UK, Airsoft Players."
You do not need to be UKARA registered to play airsoft at a site, however you will need to be registered to purchase your own realistic weapons from a retailer. If you are not registered and you purchase from a retailer, the weapon will be sprayed bright two-tone so it is clear it is not a real weapon.
Games run by Ultimate Airsoft London ("Ultimate Recreation London Ltd") count towards your UKARA registration.
