John I am sorry to tell you this, actually I'm not at all sorry at all, if you had not been such an arse about this i might have phrased this differently, you are sooooooooo wrong
You should apologise to mr Logic
amended firearms act of 1997;
Now apologise, or be gone, either will do
I quote but one thing.we have showed four missiles (two of each kind) to experienced riflemen, senior police officers and firearms administration staff. No-one has yet correctly identified which missiles are prohibited and which are uncontrolled
and the firearms act has little to do with the deer act.
The above is exactly what I am doing my level best to point out, and that is that polymer tipped bullets have not been defined accurately in legislation, which the above proves.
Yes, we know that certain polymer tipped bullets are designed for deer shooting and may even be better than the more traditional bullets but whilst we have the deer act stating as it does, we have an issue and that is by definition polymer tipped bullets to not fit in to either category stated in the act, to further add to the confusion the manufactures state that their polymer tipped bullets are neither soft or hollow nosed, as already stated this is a grey area and I prefer to stay legal and not use polymer tipped bullets. There is no need for you to have a hissy fit about things, I fear the slightest bit of flatulence from MR_Logic will leave you flat on your back.
John, the deer act (quoted below)
Prohibited firearms and ammunition
Any smooth-bore gun. .
Any rifle having a calibre of less than .240 inches or a muzzle energy of less than 2,305 joules (1,700 foot pounds). .
Any air gun, air rifle or air pistol. .
Any cartridge for use in a smooth-bore gun. .
5 Any bullet for use in a rifle other than a soft-nosed or hollow-nosed bullet
Now forgive me if I continue my "hissy fit", you are being disingenuous at best in your argument. There is no way that a polymer tipped bullet, which is designed to expand in a predictable manner by the manufacturer does not fit in the above catagory. Even the House of Commons accepts that they do, even if they admit there is little or no way to tell the bullets apart. There is nothing illegal about it. Nor is there anything illegal about polymer tipped copper bullets, as they too are designed to expand in a predictable manner
, which is the criteria in law.
As for flatulence, I fear that you suffer from it verbally, because you appear to be talking out of your rear end.
