    Has airgun licensing stopped pets in Scotland being shot or stopped criminals having them ?

    Nope. And it never will.

    So toy guns should require a licence? They have barrels. What about pneumatic tools for tradesmen? They have barrels.

    58

    to look at this from another direction,
    I have a lot of section 58s on the wall, the ones I do not shoot as I took them off ticket to make space for other things,
    still have other S 58 on ticket which I shoot,
    been having a bit of a problem with plod saying I have to many guns, NO to any more veriations,
    just one for ones,
    if this law comes in will they have to let me have all my S 58s put on my ticket so I can shoot them,
    for me this may be a win
    for others not so much,

    I didn't know there was a limit on the number of guns one can have. So long as they are locked up as per the Home Office regulations you would be within the law.
    In the documentation I have, (It might be the security handbook), the Home Office do not consider muzzleloaders as the first choice of criminals. Handguns and shotguns come before muzzleloaders.

    Until the "Offensive Weapons Bill" is passed no one can answer your question, unfortunately.

    You need to talk to the people who run the shooting sports in THIS county, then.
    Several guns and trains.

    As a long term collector of antique guns of all kinds, who has a fair understanding of the subject and of the collectors, I'm sure that It's safe to say that the people who are planning this move do not have an iota of an idea of the amount of unregulated (and rightly so) collectable antiques that are owned in the U.K. Any system of collating them will be overwhelmed. But as we all know, these people rarely let common sense get in the way of a good kneejerk.

    The main purpose of legislation and firearms law in this country is to take guns away from public use. Anyone who doesn't acknowledge this is kidding them-self.
    Look on the bright side.
    I will when I find it.

    Firearms legislation in the UK has only been successful at making it more difficult or impossible for law abiding people to own firearms.

    Criminals,however have never been impeded by licensing etc and acquire and use them at will!
