Done too. It would be really good for this to happen. In a dream once, it did - and for full-bore pistols too. Unfortunately, though, I didn't get the five pistols back that were taken from me and crushed after Dunblane. Not even in the dream!!!

Thanks to those who have signed and those who will sign.

I had a .22LR pistol back in the 70s at age 14 and used to shoot full-bore pistol at Bisley including long-range competitions at 100, 200 & 300 yards. Those were the days.

If anyone is interested, you can still shoot and own (on a FAC of course) long barrelled handguns. The barrel length has to be 30cm and the overall length 60cm which is achieved by having a "wrist support" sticking out the back of the pistol grip at the bottom which also helps to balance the long barrel. 22s can be semi-automatic, everything else are revolvers. And you can still have black powder revolvers.

If anyone would like further info please PM me.

Cheers
John

Honestly i cant even park my car these days without wondering if i am "breaking" a rule
