Firearms

The laws surrounding owning and using a shot gun can be complex due to the many different types and uses for firearms, however Chattertons provide clarity on the licensing process surrounding shotguns and firearms.

Whether you intend to use your shotgun for game shooting, clay shooting or in conjunction with a gun club, our advice can assist in respect of:

  • Advice on revocation of refusals of certificates
  • Appeals in relation to the refusal of certificates
  • Trespass shooting cases
  • Licensing for shoots and shooting clubs
  • Personal Injury arising from a shooting incident
  • Unlawful wounding

As well as providing assistance to clients in obtaining a shotgun license, Chattertons also advises clients in respect of appealing the decision of the Chief Officer of Police where they prohibit a license holder from owning a gun.
