To tell the truth, I'm expecting the same in this country soon.
I can see it coming.
It may not be a bad thing in the long term, as it will mean we can put Air Rifles on a European Firearms Certificate and travel through Europe to competitions much easier without all sorts of import permits.
So even for you it may have a benefit in the long term, possibly.
There is nothing impossible to those who will try!
