    why should we care about what a foreign subject has to say about our laws

    I shot in a pistol match last night

    won it-beating 51 out of 51 other shooters in the main event and beating 8 of 9 in the other match

    You cannot do that in your nanny state

    You beat me to it

    I love how they try and paint us as somehow far more violent than the US yet they incarcerate 5 times the number we do per capita and have a police officer shot and killed every week on average ! The last time a copper was shot here was three years ago if memory serves

    Yeah, you must be right and this website is just a front for some group that wants to take away British chances at competitive shooting

    British Shooting

    British Shooting
    Having shot for the USA I am familiar with British competitive shooting

    there is ZERO pistol shooting by civilians in England.

    Are you saying that Steve Pengelly (Head Pistol Coach) doesn't actually have anyone to coach? And the National Smallbore Rifle Assoc doesn't compete in international pistol competitions?

    http://britishshooting.org.uk/upload...-_2016_v15.pdf

    2.2.4. 25m Cartridge Pistol Trials Matches Due to the restrictions of the firearms
    legislation, it is not possible to hold domestic open matches in the 25m cartridge pistol events (25m Pistol, 25m Rapid Fire Pistol, 25m Standard Pistol and 25m Centrefire Pistol). For these events, the British Shooting Head Pistol Coach will arrange up to a maximum of 8 trials matches to be held at training camps in Great Britain (if possible) and abroad. Trials matches will be notified to likely participants in advance. Any 25m cartridge pistol events shot as part of a British Pistol Club meeting or in conjunction with any of the matches listed above for air pistol will be considered for selection purposes


    The Home Office has agreed to grant a limited number of Section 5authorities to give elite athletes the opportunity to train towards the 2014 CommonwealthGames with cartridge pistols in England and Wales. The Scottish Office has also agreed togive the same opportunity to Scottish athletes. British Shooting will administer the Section5 application process by forming a Section 5 Cartridge Pistol Squad for athletes seekingselection to represent England or Wales. STF will administer the section 5 process for allathletes wishing to represent Scotland and this will be detailed in a separate document.

    So because we can't kill or be killed more easily we therefore aren't free ? How does killing define freedom ?

    no, because you cannot own a pistol because your nanny government doesn't trust you to own one, you aren't free
