Thread: PISTOL FOR HUMANE DESPATCH

    PISTOL FOR HUMANE DESPATCH

    I have a .38 revolver on my FAC for humane despatch, needs to have a muzzle brake and be restricted to chambering 2 rounds. Anyone know of a dealer out there who can supply one off the shelf? Preferably south of England.

    3 rounds?
    think you will find most are three, you may struggle mate However I do know there are a couple of makers that do a "double barrel" affair in .410 and pistol calibres so that my well be what you are lumbered with, sorry can't be more encouraging, if I find the site I saw will post the link

    I have done a bit of checking up on the subject, apparently the ACPO has taken it upon itself along with it's Home Office cronies to limit grants to 1 or 2 shot .32's and there have been several successful appeals allowing .44's maybe there could be some mileage in using European Law to argue a disparity with German law where you are required to have a pistol, my friends father has a 9mm auto he carries in his car always!!
    Wouldn't that be one in the eye for the anti's and all the other low lifes, if someone in a position of authority was to do this then what argument could be fielded to refuse such a grant... interesting moot point?

    they are a dying breed , normaly only vets seem to hav the need for a .38 and not many want them going for an injection instead or a captive bolt system as is the slaughterman , and not many stalkers are able to get one so their is a limited market by the looks
    not that is any help to you
    give me a day or two and pm me , i shall make a few calls not sure what help i will be ,
    soon find out though
