Not an urgent question as I haven't booked a trip to the UK yet, but when I do, can I buy extra ammunition while I'm here? I had a look on the BASC website and found this:
I believe that expanding ammunition is section 5, is that correct? Or is it section 1 firearms that they are referring to on the BASC website?What do visitors permits allow?
Under Section 17 of the Firearms Act 1968, a visitor to Great Britain may, if granted a visitors' permit, have in their possession firearms, shotguns or ammunition without holding a certificate.
The holder of a visitors' firearm permit may have in their possession (but cannot purchase) a firearm and they may purchase, acquire or have in their possession any ammunition to which Section 1 of the 1968 Act applies (e.g. rifle ammunition)
Thanks in advance for any input.
