Hi Alan,
This was from one e.mail from one person. The LAG have not yet issued any report. There are 5 organisations on LAG that are associated with shooting so what the report will recommend is far from certain.

I would guess that initially the ban on lead shot over water would be extended to a ban on lead shot generally. That would obviously affect shotgunners only. I also don't think that would come quickly.

I think it would be difficult to make a case for banning lead airgun pellets because of the way they're used. The biggest danger would be more stringent legislation attached to making them, rather than a ban on them.
