The facts that David has outlined has been the Home Office position since 1997. It was reconfirmed by the FCC in 2000 and by the HO, the CPS and ACPO in around 2012/13. The advise has also been available on the BASC website for quite a while.
When deliberations have been concluded we should be informed as to who just took it upon themselves to try and get sub 12FPE semi-auto's banned. I believe it would have also affected semi-auto air pistols as well.
With the impositions that are about to be delivered to Scottish airgunners this action re semi-auto's is beyond belief.
There are members of the airgun trade who should hang their heads in shame.
