Brian, with due respect, if you think that sentence is vague, how would you re-write it with better clarity and absence of ambiguity? I think it is very well put.

"The Home Office regard self-loading or pump action rifled airguns (including paintball guns) as outside the scope of the Firearms Act, unless they are sufficiently powerful to fall within the category of a "specially dangerous" air weapon. "

Maybe in the vernacular, and specific to this issue, "You can have semi auto up to 12fpe without a licence", which is precisely the message that Lassmann wrote.
