    Default Firearms Control Amendment Bill, 2006.

    Published yesterday in Govt.Gazette No 28545.
    For information and comment before 31/3/2006.

    Some salient issues;
    Relief for owners licensed under old Act.
    Collectors--deactivation.
    Blackpowder--regulated.
    Silencers --out.
    Air Rifles--nothing.

    Plenty more-- but heavy reading (32 pages) as much reference is made to previous FCA of 2000.

    Good Morning all

    I have the electronic copy of this gazette, PM me with your e-mail address and I will send it to you. I am by no means an expert when it comes to these bills and acts, but looking at the point with regards to silencers it seems to apply to the term "firearms" which air rifles are classified as not being a "firearm" I stand to be corrected and feel this point needs to be investigated further.

    My attempt to upload the file was unsuccessful as our network security is too strict :cursin So it seems e-mail is the route to take.

    Hi Guys, new to the forum, but the silencer point is a shame. I am actually in the UK at the moment but will be back in Durban by the end of the year.
    I have just ordered the new Theoben E-Type .177 with full length baffled shrouded barrel. I was planning to import it in my shipping.
    I believe there was a thread on here discussing imports too? I cannot seem to find it, and a link would be great.

    Thanks
