    A relative of mine is Australian. Loves guns and hunting, but owns no firearms. He claims it's too complicated and involved to jump through the procedural hoops. He borrows weapons.

    Thanks for letting us know, I thought there might be a good reason for that. I was under the impression that Australian firearms laws were slightly less rigid than ours in the UK. Are you able to own handguns?

    The UK law on handguns is thatwe cannot have any,except black powder revolvers or the infamous long barrel revolvers like the one below (12" barrel minimum, total length minimim 24", which is why it has the permanent extension on the butt). I have a .22 and a .357 in this format.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Ridiculous maybe, but the UK government said that a firearm had to have a minumum 12" barrel and a minimum 24" length, thinking that would effectively ban handguns.

    However we are a resourceful bunch us Limeys. And Taurus already (or used to anyway) make revolvers with 12" barrels, only the back extension makes it different from standard.

    The protection of our rights that we enjoy in modern America is incredibly rare and precious. Incredibly few people in human history have enjoyed the protections modern Americans enjoy. We must never forget that.
