Hi all, Last night I got the following invite from the NRA. In essence it is an opportunity for a small number of members to have a go with some interesting guns, albeit single shot only mind. I have put my name down and, assuming I get on the list, will ask on the day how they managed to get this one approved, but I guess that it would require Home Office say so. Anyone else got any ideas? Either way it seems to me a possible encouraging sign, maybe not that the current restrictions are about to be eased, but at least not further tightened, hopefully. "Section 5 Historic weapons shooting With the kind assistance of the Army, we are also able to offer a truly unique opportunity for a limited number of Members to fire some of the automatic weapons from the Royal Armouries collection. This has taken a considerable amount of time to put together given the issues both around civilian use of Section 5 firearms, but also the historic nature of many of the weapons in the Collection. Exact details will only be available closer to the date, but will include some truly unique weapons alongside some more modern but still iconic firearms: MP40 Machine Pistol, MP44 (the first assault rifle from WW II), Sten gun, AK-74, AKM, SVD Dragunov and Hechler & Koch MP-5 Given the tight restrictions on Section 5 usage by civilians, this can only be done whilst the range is under military control and we are very grateful to the Army for their assistance in doing this. In recognition of this, we will be looking for a substantial donation to our chosen military charity: Headley Court, for this opportunity".
