Important: Air Weapon Legislation in Scotland

Please note that from 31 December 2016 you will need a visitor permit to own, use, purchase or acquire air weapons while in Scotland. If you are aged 14 or over and hold a valid firearm and/or shotgun licence issued in England or Wales on 31 December 2016, you won’t need a separate licence to own or use air weapons while in Scotland. However, if the licence was granted or renewed on or after 31 December 2016, then you will need a visitor permit. A Northern Irish firearm certificate will not allow you to possess an air weapon in Scotland.  Visitors from Northern Ireland will need a visitor permit to use, buy or acquire air weapons while in Scotland. All visitors from outside the UK will need a visitor permit to own, use, buy or acquire air weapons while in Scotland. Visitor permits are issued by Police Scotland.

Visitors to Scotland bringing their own air rifle and/or air pistol are responsible for ensuring they have the necessary permit and/or certificate in order to compete at STS events held in Scotland. Links to further advice and visitors permit application documents can be found below:
