Ownership of 2mm pinfire revolvers should be allowed for display or plinking (informal target shooting) use, they offer the user the experience of a real firearm (which they are) although they they are of far lower caliber and power than most legal to own air pistols.

Why is this idea important?

We have very restrictive laws in this country on firearms, so if we will never be allowed to own a proper pistol and find air pistols don’t offer a truly “real” feel surely the option of a real but very low powered revolver should be allowed like they are in mainland europe.

  1. they are legal to own as there obosolite caibre, and no shooting them is not alowed, why would you want to? tempting to have one go i know but realy want to shoot one normaly? dont you value your fingers lol, and if you want a real firearm, go get a licence like the rest of us, and yes im in the uk, shotguns and millions of other normal fireamr / millitary guns to shoot etc, black powder remington i would recomend if not go get a .22 gsg mp5 version can let off some steam that way, i love my 2mm but wouldent shoot the bloody thing how silly

    1. That’s bollocks mate they are still made today so they are not obsolete you can buy them online from the states and they are not classed as firearms over there but they come under a section 5 over here or 5c what ever it is

  2. I agree, 2mm pin fire or flobert should be allowed, not only does this give a realistic shooting experience but whereas constant use of air guns degrades internal parts and power these type of guns would be more reliable. Unfortunately if made legal it would only be a matter of days before criminals started using them and we would all have to pay the price, anything that has the potential to give the police more work is banned.

  3. No one but our least able mindless control freaks or hysterics would even nearly think of these wee trinkets as weapons of any kind. this country is suffering social wounds left from ww2 which allowed the most awful creatures to legislate and crimminalise the most ridiculous things.you could do far and away more dammage to someone with a pencil than you could ever do with one of these things, it would just be too embarrasing to tell anyone that you thought they were dangerous! 40 years ago when i was a soldier serving in Osnabruck in Germany we played with these things in the billet none of us could hit a cigarette packet at aany more than a foot away, its so small its impossible to aim it, and when we actualy hit it the wee pellet only went through when we took out the cigaretts! we even shot each other with it no one reported any wounds. They came with 9mm flares which, though fun didnt even come close to the mini flares we were issued with! they are toys n trinkets.
