Now the power limit for the non fac air rifle is 20 joules max. This means that the sale of airguns under 20 j is obsolutly free.
This is a very good news for FT / hft shooters who before this law were to enroll in a French Shooting club and must wait six months before to have the rigth to buy and holding an airifle .
Now we are free from this constraint that costed at least 100 euros per year with the obligation to regurarly practice in a government-approved shooting club.
as someone said before me :today i have a dream "Free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last"
Today the French FT makes a great step
Robert great news, no more transfer port swap for traveling.
Now the most beautiful FT course, Millau will have the number of shooters it deserves.
