I know a few people who have vast collections of firearms here in the UK. they are not de-commissioned, these are fully functional and shootable firearms. my question is, how do you get permission to collect firearms that you can shoot and store, etc. without being able to 'justify' it from a normal hunting/stalking/target shooting perspective?
clearly having say, 200 firearms cannot be authorised by the normal procedures?.. is this feasible simply because some of these individuals are rather wealthy and influential in society?
...I want to know..LOL
