    According to the article the sale of ammunition is quite restricted. An officer was shot with reloaded ammo, and they are going to restrict either components or presses, I'm not sure which.

    Wait, you mean to tell me that if you ban guns, people can still make them?




    :rolleyes:

    And they'd have to probably restrict the powder or primers. Presses are already out there, bullets can be cast. Cases can obviously be reloaded, so that leaves powder and primers.

    I'm going to laugh my head off when Brits rediscover (in order) caplocks, flintlocks, wheellocks, and matchlocks. Firearms: just a trip to Lowe's away!

    In England, they have B&Q. (Which I think is involved with Home Depot in some way, like ASDA over there is Wal-Mart.)

    Anyway, B&Q's slogan is: You can do it when you B&Q it.

    Maybe that can change to: You can do it when you AOW it! :evil:

    The last time I checked, eBay was still auctioning reloading machines. So who's lying here - eBay or the writer of this story?

    I believe that eBay has different sites for different countries.

    If this is true, I guess I'd hardly feel surprise - the way things have gone and are going.

    My poor ol' buddies from way back - who after loosing all handguns, could only enjoy club shooting with lever actions - have depended on reloading for economy and fine tuning - if that is restricted then it's about all over.

    Tho I guess folks who have the gear may be OK - IF (big IF) they can eventually still obtain the consumables. Oh my - punish the innocent for the transgressions of the relatively few - it saddens me beyond belief. I rather hope this is not going to be fact of course but ............ :eek:

    When is evolutionary pressure going to kick in over there? They just need to get the right structural engineering major and chemistry major to share a dorm room. Then we could have a practical homemade caseless cartridge and tinfoil (hat) origami firearm.

    They just need to crack down a little harder, so we can see something really interesting emerge.

    Fanatic: One who, having lost sight of his objective, redoubles his efforts.

    I thought the (ostensible) objective was to reduce crime and promote safety.

    With a certain amount of care and a tad of skill, one can rebuild a primer using a high school chem lab compound. (I ain't tellin', in public.) Then, as is well known, one can acquire sulfur, charcoal and potassium nitrate and make black powder.

    Next thing ya know, the Brits will put serial numbers on wheel weights!

    Fear mongering at its finest. I wonder how long till Agricola comes along to explain the inherent wisdom in all this.

    Agricola will be along shortly. He's currently having a bit of a disagreement with a direct descendent of Genghis Khan bent on knocking down his house. He should be here in a bit to do a search for his user name and defend the latest madness from is island, provided the world doesn’t end first.

    You're right! I wouldn't have believed it, I went to the eBay .uk section, and the reloading supplies are a joke. I almost laughed, until I realized what it really meant. Those poor Brits. What is their government thinking?
