    Hello from Scotland!

    Hello to all from an ex handgun shooter in sunny Scotland.
    Excellent forums.
    Still shooting despite unjust handgun ban (Marlin 1894C).

    Welcome! I've got some distant relatives in Scotland. My maternal great-grandmother was from Glasgow.

    Welcome aboard! What part of Scotland are you from? And how does shooting a rifle in the UK work? Do you have to leave it locked up at a gun club?

    Lived in London for a year - never made it to Scotland - I've regretted it ever since.

    Thanks for the warm welcome.

    Live south of Glasgow.

    Dont have to keep guns at club, only need to be a member of a club and have all firearms registered with the local police force.
    Must be kept at home address in a gun cabinet that the police inspect before a firearm certificate will be issued.
    The police are usually very helpful an do not treat you like a criminal or some kind of weird gun nut. Unlike some sections of the UK media.

    Been over to the states on several occasions, always manage to get a bit of shooting in while there.

    Last visit to Las Vegas, shot an Ingram Mac10, an MP5, and an MP40.
    I Love America!

    Happy Shooting all.
