Shooting is undoubtedly the most heavily regulated and policed sport in the country and we all need to be aware of our duties and responsibilities under the applicable law. The Firearms Law Handbook is a detailed guide to everything you need to know about obtaining and holding a shotgun or firearms certificate and explains your obligations once you have been issued your licence, all in a very easy to understand format.
There are clear definitions of all of the common terms you will come across in the firearms legislation, including detailed considerations of both deactivated and prohibited weapons, so that you can fully understand the subject matter. Chapters on the licensing of section 1 firearms, shotguns and also on the refusal or revocation of those licences, cover the subjects in great detail and include valuable information on the appeals process.
The book goes on to cover specific subjects like security, imitation firearms, criminal offences relating to firearms, age restrictions, shooting game and even poaching, all in a very approachable style of writing making it very easy to follow. This is not a law textbook, it is a useful aid to anyone involved in shooting sports and the legal possession of guns. So, a good investment for any gun club, firearms dealer or gun collector and it is the best book on the subject I have seen.
