Air Weapons and Licensing (Scotland) Act 2015
On 31 December 2016 Air Weapon Licencing was introduced in Scotland.
This new legislation states that all Air Weapons Under 12ft/lbs but over 1ft/lbs of power (previously refer to as low powered Air Weapons) now required a licence to Own, Possess and Use. Failure to obtain a licence can lead up to a 2 year jail term.
Members who are shooting at an approved club (such as Juniper Green A.R.C) are covered by the clubs licence during probation, when on club property and using club weapons. However we encourage potential members to apply for their AWL (Air Weapon Licence) as soon as possible. Membership at Juniper Green A.R.C is not offered to members who do not obtain an AWL.
