    To any UK members who frequent these parts, could you tell me what kind of certificates one needs to obtain to legally be able to own a BP gun?

    Cheers

    I think that a person,who wishes to obtain black-powder ,needs a Section1 Firearms Certificate-but that I know definately applies to pistols.This was how standard-length cartridge-pistols were licensed,before they were banned.

    For the guns you need a section 1 firearms certifcate with the correct veriations.

    For the Black Powder, Under the Control of Explosives Regulations 1991, you need to apply for an explosives licence for Sporting / social use on an Acquire and keep basis.

    This should help,
