Air guns need a licence from now on in India

PostAuthor: silverghost » Tue Aug 02, 2016 1:45 pm

Hello guys,
Came across this article stating that from now on even air guns will require a proper arms licence. Even blank-firing guns and paintball guns are now classified as weapons that will require a license. If this is true, it might put a lot of unsuspecting people into trouble.

My two cents:
In my opinion air guns will never require an arms license in India. Shooting as a sport has taken off unlike any other sport in our country and is already showing results on the world stage. It is no longer just army men who are excelling in the sport. People from all walks of life pursue it as more than just a hobby.
All in all, we may see existing laws becoming tighter and experience stricter enforcement. But making a law that that may indirectly threaten our country's reputation on the world stage is unlikely.

This change has nothing to do with competition shooting. Those guns are anyway .177 and well below 15ft lbs. This has to do with high powered and larger calibre airguns. While the rules are bunkum and impossible to enforce as with most laws in this pothole of a nation, it will be difficult to argue against the changes. The stupid rules on banning import of new firearms in circa 1984 still stand.

That's why before the elections I was suggesting- think before you vote.

Indians are no 1 in spreading half/false information and rumours.

The draft is an insult to intelligence. People are laughing that indians do not understand the difference between a spring gun and an actual firearm.

It seems the govt is incapable of controlling those few ugly commando wannabe nerd boys from shooting wittle birds in the grass. There are some towns where the situation has got so worse that there are no birds in the sky to be seen because the kids have shot them all down over the years. Instead of establishing order(whooping nerds), the govt thinks punishing others will solve the problem. This is wrong.

Hopefully, the govt wont ban .22 and instead give airgun sellers the option of self control and only sell to customers with reference.

It seems many of the online air gun sellers 10kya, aimco have stopped selling 0.22 air guns. Even Precihole has removed 0.22 air guns from its website. Till now, kovibazaar is only selling it online.

why is this stupid rules???India has become a Country of Sissies. The Joy of Shooting will be denied to the younger Generation as they will be banning .177 cal Airguns next.
Everything Martial like in Indian nature will be gone out, we will be curtailed in all arms related items..If import of Firearms were not banned in 1984, we would all be enjoying Foriegn made Firearms at reasonable rates instead of paying astronomical sums for them right now..
So sad.. :(
