View Full Version : Newbie from the UK - go easy on me!

September 16, 2008, 10:17 AM
Hi Everyone

Being from the UK, I am subject to (overly) strict firearms laws. I have just applied for my Fire Arms Certificate but my local police force has told me this could take around 12 months to arrive.

Until then i am using my little .177 pellet guns, Beretta CX4, Walther CP99 etc. I was wondering if there is a .177 or .22 version of the M4/M16? Pref CO2, not pre-charged but anything accepted.

If anyone has seen one/has one to sell, please let me know. These are the only legal things I can buy at the moment. My best friend is a firearms dealer here in the UK so I can have things shipped to him, but he does not know where to start looking for one.

If you can help, let me know!

Hi Armoredman

Believe me, if I could afford it I would be there right now swimming in guns I could only dream of owning here in England, even with a Firearms certificate!
