    Sounds even more like we need to have a brick party at Hadrians Wall ASAP before they get to our lot here in Englandicon to start looking at it.
    Oh well I am so glad Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn left me their catapults in thier wills

    Okay, I admit it. I'm a fekkin' eedjit. I read 'Air Weapons Act' and instantly thought it was for missiles, drones and other airborne vehicles carrying some form of ordnance. Regulating air rifles, pellet guns and BB guns?

    Spare me Lord!

    Paul,
    Its fact and Law north of the border, and for no answerable or rational reason either!

    It's been mentioned in Gun Mart periodically but I get the sense that the Police are scratching their heads a bit on how they are going to enforce it, north of the border.

    (4) But the expression does not include—

    (a) an air weapon which is not a firearm (within the meaning of section 57(1) of the 1968 Act),

    (b) an air weapon (within the meaning of section 1(3)(b) of the 1968 Act)—

    (i) which is not capable of discharging a missile with kinetic energy of more than one joule as measured at the muzzle of the weapon, or

    Ok, can someone tell me what “air weapon” missile has less energy than a medium size tomato dropped from three feet?

    Must be small tomato dropped from three feet?

    Indeed it is and by parliamentary act no less.

    One wonders what will be next. A possibility is 'The Offensive Culinary Instruments Act' affecting the possession, use, and prohibition of such dangerous instruments as soup ladles, basting brushes, egg lifters, and the deadliest of all, wooden spoons in the hands of angry housewives and mothers. After all, society must be protected from itself at all costs.

    After extensive research, I found an air weapon that has less than one joule of kinetic energy measured at the muzzle and it’s an A-Salt weapon.
