Hi there,

I support strongbow's idea about joining a club or a hunting group. My friend is a hunter, so, if I'm not missing something, he goes through the licencing procedure - that changed last year - every two years. Several docs have to be joined, but I have heard nothing of a written test. By this, I'm not saying it doesn't exist.
In your case, two procedures shall take place: import and posession later on.
For those procedures, pls see the guidelines in:

pauta.dgaiec.min-finan..._IC015.PDF

And the main law for imprting and registering fireguns and munition is:

with an edict:

If you have guns in the UK, you have an FAC. speak to your Flo, and get a european FAC, that simple.
