Not yet, but possibly .22lr handguns if ten thousand of us buy new ones tomorrow.

A full list of everything that's going gets done up by this new civilian licencing body, but that's a while out yet.

Dunno,the CF pistols were a immediate ministerial ban in 08.But then again,tempoary in Ireland can be 35 years. So I wouldnt expect this body to be set up for..........[ tumble weed rolls by]........an Irish "in due course"
Thats what I'm worried about Sparks,considering some "civil servants" hadnt a bulls notion what they were talking about in the witness box in the DC around the country.Wont have be any smarter as civillian administrators of this either.

No, they weren't. He told the papers they were banned. What he actually did (mainly because of the intervention of Garrett Byrne) was different.

It's always a possibility Grizzly, but we haven't seen a single detail yet, so I'm not going to work on an opinion one way or the other just yet.

Haven't lads been having to butcher their 6 (and more) round .22 revolvers to only hold 5 for a good while now anyway?

Explicitly so, yes. I understood that was the direct intent of the change.
