Here is the updated position from the NRA on the HO proposals. Notice they have substantially widened the scope of the ban while in true HO terms made the terms so vague that even B/P pistols could be caught in the net. From the NRA   Update – Home Office Consultation – “Offensive Weapons” We have recently received further clarification on the Home Office proposals to prohibit two types of firearms (.50 calibre and VZ58 MARS)...
