    Default Knew this was coming...

    Found this last night but pc was giving problems...

    From March 2006 all air powered arms will require a certificate. (Not sure if this includes C02).
    No mention of power or calibre, just air powered.

    Will all the reports in the East Rand newspapers I'm surprised it's not an out and out ban altogether.

    PS, the site is very slow, takes a while to load.

    Eventually found it, I see that they are also granting an amnesty period after implicating the ?new fire control act? on all Air rifles, starts in March 2006 I think. Don?t know why they want a competency test carried out if you only require a certificate.
    Tis not like they want us to licence it or anything, or am I reading it wrong???

    I see that you are also going to require your air rifle certificate when buying pellets from next year.
