Thread: 5 shot shotgun

  1. #1

    5 shot shotgun

    Can a 5 shot semi automatic shotgun be used for clay pigeon and if so does it have to have that condition on your FAC

  2. #2
    Yes they can and yes it will have to be conditioned,I doubt you will get clay pigeon as the primary "need" though,try tactical targets or winged vermin control.

  3. #3
    Yes it can, subject to the ok from the club/grounds where you will use it, and yes, it will have to be conditioned

    Only just got my renewal back and had asked for clays but not as a primary need they gave me shooting birds in accordance with the purpose,terms and conditions of the general license issued by SNH , along with all lawful quarry would the last bit allow me to shoot clays ?

    Yes it would need to be conditioned which should be added automatically when you get the shotgun for its main purpose.

    Section 1 s/a and p/a shotguns may be used on my local clay ground but can only be loaded with a max. of two cartridges at a time.
    So maybe the Law allows it, but many clay ground operators don't.
