Proposals for Licensing Air Weapons in Scotland


Pilot Scheme

66. The Scottish Firearms Consultative Panel discussed the possibility of undertaking a regional pilot of an air weapon licensing scheme, as set out in the Panel's Terms of Reference. There was no support for this suggestion. It was agreed that a pilot would be of little benefit because any data it provided would be skewed by the availability of air weapons outside the pilot area. Furthermore, it was considered that a pilot scheme would be expensive and difficult to manage.
