How many Shotgun Licences?

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. Does anyone have an idea of how many shotgun licences are held in the UK and also approximately how many shotguns there are?
    It's a strange question but there's some-one on a woodlands forum who is spouting nonsense and he is being accepted as the font of all wisdom
    It was because of his twaddle that I asked about air pistols operating at over 6ft/lbs
     

  2. Semi-Official figures: England & Wales Firearms and shotgun certificates data by police force | World news | guardian.co.uk

    God's own country: http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Resource/Doc/311804/0098435.pdf

    Nobody has a clue about how many shotguns are actually out there. When the registration laws came in, they reckon at least 2 million semi-autos & Pump actions "disappeared".
     
  3. Seven.
