And guess what? One day I high sided my bike into the back of a car, and I'm still around to post about it.
You alone must judge the evidence and assess the risks to yourself re your air rifles. There is no test at the moment fella so if you are truly concerned that you may be the next 'what if' then sell your airguns.
I don't have the statistics, but I'm sure more blokes have fallen off motorbikes in the last 46 years than have been convicted for having their air rifle 'found to be capable' by Boris and his gang at the Frankenstein Forensic Lab. I'd say the body armour was a decent bet and thank God it helped you. You didn't have your rifle taken for testing and found to be capable when you last met the Bobbies ... refer to Option B in my previous post and it won't happen in the future.
