    Info from Mike E, our club secretary (PSA), Home office figures just out, show 8% rise in FAC's & 5% rise for Shotgun certs. should also be some graphs somewhere, showing legal gun ownership / armed crime stats.

    That would be here: http://www.homeoffice.gov.uk/rds/pdfs10/hosb0510.pdf

    There were 138,728 firearm certificates on issue at the end of March 2009, an increase of eight per cent compared with the 128,528 on issue at the end of March 2008.

    The 138,728 certificates on issue at the end of March 2009 covered 435,383 firearms

    The 138,728 certificates on issue represent an 18 per cent increase compared with the end of March 2006 when the last counting prior to the transition from in-force data collection systems to the NFLMS was conducted.

    In 2008/09, around one per cent of applications for new firearms were refused, a slightly higher proportion compared with 2007/08.

    In 2008/09, a total of 260 firearm certificates were revoked, compared with 248 in 2007/08.
