Our if interest this e.mail was received today from the Home Office.

Drugs and Firearms Licensing unit.
Crime and Policing Group.

Subject: FW: Semi Automatic sub 12 foot pound energy air rifles.
Dear Mr XXXXX,

The CPS link is still valid and has not been superseded.

The HO guidance does not mention semi-automatic air rifles specifically, but this is implicit whenever the guidance mentions air rifles.
A semi-automatic air rifle which has an energy rating of under 12 foot lbs does not need to be on a certificate.

I hope that this helps.


Perhaps AMTA should stop making things up and ask the right people the right questions. It speaks volumes that our so called defenders of airgunning haven't got a clue.
