Shooting legal advice

DAVID FROST

We are already bound by the European Firearms Directive which is why you need a European Firearms Pass if you want to take a gun and go shooting on the Continent.

Every country has its own laws and some are worse than ours.

For example, in France you can’t have a military calibre rifle such as a .308, nor can you lamp foxes at night.

Whilst the actual ownership of a gun in France is less complicated than in the UK you can’t use one without passing a hunting test.

Our system is far from perfect but that doesn’t mean everyone else has a better one.
