What are GelSoft Guns?

Gelsoft guns are very similar to paintball guns. They fire water based ammo that pops/bursts on impact. The guns are not considered weapons because of this system and their comparatively lower power output. Compared to airsoft guns which fire fire hard plastic ammo, our GelSoft ammo is soft and squishy which means they aren't intended as weapons and are unlikely to cause injury.

A RIF (Realistic Imitation Firearm) is any item which looks like a real firearm when viewed from a short distance away by a person without any specialist knowledge." This means that any item that looks like a real firearm, regardless of if it's working or not that 'could' be a real gun is defined as a RIF and falls under some specific controls and regulations. RIFs are possible to own and use if certain conditions are met

What are the conditions for buying, owning and using a RIF?
RIFs can only be sold if it is to be used for certain permitted purposes and activities. This includes historical re-enactment and skirmishing.
They must only be purchased by someone over the age of 18.

During the checkout process, you are required to tick the relevant boxes to indicate to us that you acknowledge these responsibilities.

Permitted Activities
Permitted activities are the use cases for these items that comply with the VCRA (Violent Crime Reduction Act). The specific definition given in the act is as follows.

“The acting out of military or law enforcement scenarios for the purposes of recreation."

This is primarily intended to cover those who wish to engage in 'skirmishing' activities. This is where individuals or teams attempt to fire at the opposing team in order to hit them before they themselves are hit. Essentially acting out a military or police encounter, though, the rules on this can vary from game to game.

So, where should you use a Gelsoft Skirmish Series RIF?

First, it's important to remember that RIFs can not be used or taken into public places, and must only be used on private land where you have permission from, or are the land owner. Using a realistic imitation firearm in public can and will get you arrested, is not sensible and is more than likely to cause alarm to the general public. As a general rule, they are best kept at home, at organised skirmish activities or re-enactments.

Back Garden | Private Land | Reenactment Sites | Airsoft Sites | Paintball Sites etc...


Gelsoft guns should NOT be used in circumstances where alarm or distress may be caused to others. Remember, it is an offence to have any type of imitation firearm in a public place without a reasonable excuse and you may be arrested.
