I missed the whole handgun thing before they were banned.... but there is a club with 7.3 facilities not too far from me.

What are the pros/cons for 7.3. Is it worth the hassle ? Easy to obtain (usual good reason ?)

So far all I know is that the pistol is stored on the club premises with a section 5 dealer required to transport pistol around the country.

Are there any other restrictions ?

Are there many RFD's who sell suitable 7.3 hardware ?

What sort of prices am I looking at ? (Would like an auto.....)

Any info much appreciated

Cheers
Steven

This whole thing does my head in.

I was trustworthy enough to be allowed 5 pistols.Me and the wife shot them twice weekly.
I'm now only trustworthy enough to be allowed 6 Rifles(on my FAC due to size of HO approved safe) Strange that I could potentialy kill more people at a greater distance with a rifle than with a pistol confuses me.
Since my pistols were handed in and banned....gun crime rose by 40%
This could be attributed to a natural rise, ok ...therefore removing hanguns from legitimate owners did not stop or slow down the rise in gun crime.
I payed a price and lost my pistols...It acheived nothing.

I want full fullbore pistol satus reinstated. No half measures or compromises.
It's been proved...the figures speak for themselves.....


Legitimate held hanguns or rifles ....do not comit crime
