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. Section 7.1 and 7.3 ?

    Looking for some advise from someone who has had any experience in applying for a Section 7.1 or 7.3 firearms
    Cheers Terry
  2. Your first hurdle will be your "collector" bony fidos.

    Just like Section 1, for Section 7(1) and 7(3) you must have a "good reason" and: "I'd like one" isn't good enough. 7(1) at home can ONLY be as "part of a collection" (No discretion, it is in the Primary Legislation.) and 7(3) is not allowed for recreational shooting or competition.

    Before the fuzz will give you either you must demonstrate that good reason. For a start you will probably need to be a Full Member of an organisation like the HBSA.

    If you can make the Trafalgar on Saturday, the HBSA are holding a Section 7 Exhibition in the Army Target Shooting Club hut. There you will able to get good advice on Section 7 and what is involved. You MUST have your FAC on you.

    As for a deacted Mk.VI, PM me.
