The problem up here is that they may not evade "officialdom" for much longer.
If you had to put all your air rifles on a "ticket" you would just make them all FAC anyway, wouldn`t you ?
We will have to wait and see what the marxist nannies vote for friend! Our local licensing officer reckoned that if they went on ticket throughout the UK departments would grind to a halt in days. The workload will be impossible to manage and a compromise would be found, as it always is. And yes, if it happens in Scotland you might as well just apply for a full FAC. I saw one suggestion for Scotland being self registration, much like the current FAC one for many shooters. How many bets on that route and a nice fat fee as well?
