Air Pistols at FAC power levels

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. This is from a query on another forum: Air pistols are limited to 6ft/lbs and Air Rilfes to 12ft/lbs. If you want an air rifle at above those levels you have to show "good cause" and go for an FAC.
    Are you allowed air pistols at above 6ft/lbs? Personally, I wouldn't have thought these were allowed.
  2. You are right.

    If an air pistol is over 6ft/lbs then it is calssed as a firearms requiring a certificate. However as mere mortals are not allowed to own handguns an air pistol over 6ft/lbs would be illegal.
