Well if your under 18 what are you doing on the Internet thingy at that time of night ? You should be in bed ! .
"Your not the under 18s messiah your a very naughty boy ! "  :laughsoutloud:

Didn't notice that haha. Will change it now. But the point is still valid :bravo:

P.S i'm 18 in May, so even if it does come down it being for people who are 18+ it won't effect me much, just thought i'd voice my opinion for those who are further away.

Another one of my gripes. The main reason insurance is so high for people my age is because if the prats who stick a massive wing on the back of their 1L Nissan Micra and then instantly think they're the next Lewis Hamilton, but end up wrapping their car around a lamp post.

And for reference;

Feel sorry for owners of Nissan Skylines. They're great cars, but their reputation as being a base for any and all upgrades, means that even one stock has its insurance jacked up.

I thought that was a Renault 5

A quick question, Possibly a stupid one. Does this mean that you will be permitting the sale of 500fps Bolt actions on these forums?

I will express that I have no immediate interest in owning such a thing, and my question was asked purely out of curiosity.

No plans to do so at present, certainly not until the outcome of the trial is known.

i hope that people who get hit by a sniper who's hiding start to be honest and take their hits and just dont look around i and think,ah where did that come from and that no-one saw that i got hit and carries on playing.
all because they can't see the snesky clever sniper. as this then could have the point thats whats the point being a sniper ?.
but i hope it really works as i think d.v is a great place for snipers.

Are you guys going to open this up to semi auto snipers at 400 FPS?

Great news on this move but not all have bolt actions

You don't go out looking for a job dressed like that do you, on a weekday?

Nope. Semi auto is not legal at 400fps as far as I am aware.

Any chance of a link to the legislation Ollie, just wondering about this myself as I can't use a boltie with a hard spring. Cheers mate.
