Law and Li­cens­ing: A con­cise guide for shot­gun and ri­fle own­ers

Sporting Gun - - NEW BOOKS -

Firearms law can seem be­wil­der­ing to the av­er­age shooter, but not know­ing the law could de­prive you of your sport, or worse, your lib­erty. BASC’s lat­est hand­book, Law and Li­cens­ing, is a con­cise guide that cov­ers top­ics from shot­guns through to ri­fles and air­guns. It even has a sec­tion on the law re­lat­ing to knives.

BASC’s Di­rec­tor of Firearms, Bill Har­ri­man, dis­tills his im­mense knowl­edge on the sub­ject into 96 pages, mak­ing a very ac­ces­si­ble book. This book is more use­ful than mak­ing a ran­dom search on the In­ter­net be­cause you know that the in­for­ma­tion given is from a ver­i­fi­able source. It cov­ers ev­ery as­pect of shoot­ing all in a pocket-size book, which has a use­ful in­dex for quick ref­er­ence.

Har­ri­man’s ex­pe­ri­ence as a le­gal ad­vi­sor and firearms foren­sic ex­am­iner shines through with his clear and prac­ti­cal ad­vice. For ex­am­ple, many of us will have had dif­fi­culty trav­el­ling with guns when stay­ing in tem­po­rary ac­com­mo­da­tion. “As a gen­eral rule, it is never wise to let the ho­tel staff know you have a gun with you. Most peo­ple are not fa­mil­iar with guns and tend to panic when they en­counter them.” Har­ri­man’s ad­vice is clear, if you are trav­el­ling with your gun break it up and carry it in a holdall, or suit­case, so as not to bring at­ten­tion to your­self.

This book cov­ers all you need to know about shoot­ing and the law and is a must for any­one who takes their shoot­ing se­ri­ously.
