So that definition - LP50 and H5 Semi Auto Mechs.

How come some people easily say Steyr H5 S/A is prohibited...but take forever to utter the same words from their lips, regarding the LP50 ? .... available for at least 10 years from UK shops as "official Imports" ? (assuming both are same mechs - 1 pistol at 6 ft/lb, and other big bro version, a rifle at sub 12 ft/lb).

What makes the Steyr H5 Semi Auto rifle...fair game to pillory , but not the LP50 ?
