Scottish Airgun Law

From 31st December 2016, the law in Scotland requires certificates for low-powered airguns  – and you can obtain them  like firearm certificates – from the police – at least the law-abiding shooters will.

Criminals won’t be allowed certificates which will simply mean they’ll continue to abuse airguns as before, and that’s even assuming that they’ll apply for them – which I sincerely doubt.

So, much more work and bureaucracy for the police and the shooter – at a time when airgun crime is at its lowest level ever in Scotland. Good news eh ?
