As reported in the April edition of the Sporting Rifle mag page 16 it would appear there may be a change to the ridiculous requirements associated with purchasing section 5 (expanding) bullets. One or two of his other ideas are unworkable; single certificate, medical records, family involvement.
As a result of the Cumbrian shooting enquiry ACC Adrian Whiting has recommended a Regulatory Reform Order, which would improve administrative aspects of firearms licensing for universal benefit. The main aspect of the RRO is to remove the restrictions on expanding ammunition. I am assuming that ammunition includes bullets.
Does this mean in due course we will be able to have expanding bullets posted?????????????? Please God. This nonsense has gone on long enough. I am holding my breath but may die of suffocation waiting for the change in legislation.
BASC will be urging the Government to implement the RRO asap. Yesterday would be good.
Perhaps someone at BASC can update us please.
