What Color Is Yours

#1
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?

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.

I seen police carrying one during the Raul Mote incident .
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.

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.

Matthew 7;5 - Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

^ Hmmm......MtC I never picked you for religious prolivity, so I shall smite you with this: Ezekiel 23:19-20

Yet she became more and more promiscuous as she recalled the days of her youth, when she was a prostitute in Egypt. There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses.

Ok let's see if I can do this from memory.

O yea though I walk through the shadow of the valley of death, I shall fear no evil for thou art with me. Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Think I got that right.
