1) BASC needs to do a"Press Release" ASAP
clarifying this matter up - when and after they get the minutes of the meeting between the GTA & Home Office.
2) Will the ISSF and http://www.britishshooting.org.uk/
react to a HO ban on the Rapid Fire discipline disappearing from the UK ?
and , seriously,
3) will UK shop owners be prosecuted for having sold "rifled guns" ie: semi auto pistols with "rifled" barrels (sub 6 ft/lb) , now that the GTA has kindly "helped clarify the law" that stood since 1968 ??? Is that what they are saying ?
LP50 - Semi Auto Pistols with rifled barrels (Sub 6 ft'lb) sold in UK at UK shops at present:
LP50 = LEGAL PERMITTED or ILLEGAL PROHIBITED weapon :?:
Shop onwers & Customers to be arrested and or fined by CPS over the Steyr LP50 ?
Interesting release date..

FAILING the above , there is 1 final chance, *IF* the Minutes of the Meeting between HO & GTA bode for the worse
(currently offline due to election, but expect it back online)
FINAL POINT > the UK National Governing Bodies- maybe some of you want to spread the word & update them ? > NSBRA, Disability Shooting UK, NRA, etc..etc..
NB: "rifled guns" > 'rifled' > Adjective > http://www.memidex.com/rifled+adjective
PLUS word: gun = Semi Auto LP50 pistol (a gun), with 'rifled' barrel - is also "caught" if its defined in this manner - so the trade has walked on its own landmine (IMHO)
