    Game Licence- Scotland Only

    How many on here, from Scotland, or indeed shoot game in Scotland have one?

    Yes have one, but was a bit shocked when I purchased it last year, to find it was only two numbers up from the year before
    and this was from a rural post office in an area where there are a lot of gun owners.

    This was started 27 March 10, dug up from the past...........So the original post is well outdated.

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    I've been query'n this with the local Post Office for a few months now, they told me they've just received notification

    that Game licences are abolished. She was to say the least it's taken the from April to nowto let them know.

    THATS WHAT I CALL SERVICE!!!
