    I understand under UK law toy guns/airsoft and the likes have to be orange or a non conventional color for guns ( feckin mad isnt it?) So why then do British police have yellow furnished 870 Remington`s ?

    Is it so civvys think the cops are only using toys or what?

    What UK police units have these? Any links? Pics etc? Any point to this? :)
     
  5. Could be for a number of reasons:
    1) It's a weapon designed for less lethal systems (Taser X-rep or impact rounds) and has some kind of feature that prevents live rounds being loaded or struck.
    2) They want it to be obvious that they are carrying - a visual deterrent that stands out against most backgrounds
    3) They don't want to lose it.

    I think you will find that if you are a registered Airsofter in a registered club, you do not need to have a coloured weapon.

    I regularly shoot on a range shared with the local Police all use standard coloured weapons.

    Was a TASER type. (Not yet officially taken into service but, IIRC, offered by a company to the force as it might be useful.) Try reading newspapers or watching news every now and then. It might stop you posting bone threads.

    Correctamundo - If not registered you could still purchase the same models but in horrendously bright colours.

    Cops here have them. I think they're for firing those beanbag rounds. I think they're coloured differently to stop plod from accidentally loading normal rounds in them.

  12. Where was he carrying it? In his eye?
     
  13. No, but I believe he removed one of his own eyes with his shotgun (Allegedly). The ******* steroid abusing thunderpuff.

    As said before it was a LTL weapon. However, should I ever choose to go off the rails and brass up a city centre I will just duracoat my weapon of death orange so i can proceed unmolested.
