'fraid so. We keep sneaking in ;)

I have been shooting for around 20 years in some form or another both home and in the USA.

At home I shoot both target and live quarry (rabbit/fox/deer) with rifle and target only with my replica Uberti Remington BP revolver.

I reload all my own (except for .22LR of course!) and hand cast for the .45LC.

Current toys in the hut include:-

Marlin 39a Mountie .22LR (1959)
Marlin 1894 Cowboy .45LC (modern)
CZ452 Varmint 16" barrel with sound mod .22LR
Steyr Pro Hunter Mountain MK2 .243 Win with PES sound moderator
Steyr Tactical Elite heavy barrelled .223 Rem
Uberti Remington BP revolver .44

Paul :D

Hey Paul welcome aboard! :cool:

Nice collection you've got there. Is it a pain working around the more restrictive laws over there across the pond?

Too true. It is an absolute PITA but I guess you have heard that all before from over here, huh? ;)

Doubt we will ever get our handguns and semi's back - but here's hoping? :rolleyes:

(is that a chill I hear down below? LOL)

Handguns

Hi I am a Brit but now reside in France, haven't been on the shooting scene in the UK since the ban, I decided to leave and take my stuff with me..... I am not up with things over there as I said as I rarely see the guys from my old club when I visit the folks, but someone did mention that there was a guy in Norfolk or thereabouts that challenged the law in Brussels. According to the chap I spoke to he had been a shooting like ourselves for many years and made a case under the European human rights legistation and won. I don't know, seems a bit far fetched but a nice thought though?.........

Not that I have heard Boris and I would have ;)

You can still own handguns/semi/full auto........but you need permission from the sec of state to own Section 5 weapons and you have as much chance as finding rockin horse poo! :)

So to all intents and purposes we have none of the above for the average Joe.
