For me,its not thinking that you cannot own a live firearm. Its thinking that it quite a hassle to go through with all the limitations imposed.

Very true. Here in Canada when a leftist (Liberal) party was in power they enacted a long gun registry. I believe it was '93. Imposing it, they said, would cost our government (taxpayers) only $2m. Once the bill ran up to $500m, and only 30% of long guns had been registered, and a Conservative government was elected, the long gun bill was abolished... except in Quebec... the province that wants to separate from Canada. (Mind you, I think most Western provinces are thinking the same thing!) My point is, law abiding citizens who owned long guns jumped through the hoops, me included. I was a dedictated, responsible owner and would not give up my firearms for a few hoops. Many did. Thousands of long guns (many, many Enfields) were destroyed during these " Dark Times" in Canada. The hoops went away, and it is truly looking like this ridiculous leftist government (now a minority government) lead by a golden spoon boy, will not survive their second term. And once again, common sense in regards to legal firearms and responsible owners will prevail.

It really isn't as difficult as many think it is.

The Police cannot refuse to approve a (legal) firearm without good reason.
If you can explain why you need one (not just 'want one') and have somewhere safe to use it then your request will be granted.

It does make you want to get the 'best example' rather than have several 2nd rate rifles.

In the UK your shooting land must be approved by the Police for the calibre you want (if, for example your land is approved for 7.62 then you can use any calibre up to that) I am in the fortunate position that I have been granted an 'open certificate' which allows me to determine if any land is safe without having to request Police approval.

The only real restriction is having to apply to the Police for a 'slot(s)' on your certificate which means you can then go out and buy the firearm(s).
Once purchased, inform the local Police of model, calibre and serial number and that's it.

It may well be different to the US system but it really is not really that complicated.

How do you explain you “need” to own 15 rifles and 30 pistols?

I’m afraid this is our future here is the US if the Dems get control of the house, senate and presidency.

I just walked into a Gun Store here in Phoenix Arizona with a target rifle to trade in for a Ruger Gunsite Scout rifle. Filled out the necessary background check paperwork and five minutes later walked out of the place with the Ruger. I can go to the range and shoot it or I can go out on any public land that is a 1/4 mile from any travel lanes and occupied buildings and shoot it. I can open carry it,keep it in my truck,and display wherever I want,without police interference.  All because, I just wanted it.

Goosic. Actually, in Canada, we can do the same if we purchase a rifle from a Gun Shop. No wait. Long guns are no issue now. If we purchase a long gun privately, we don't need to register it. Just show the seller our PAL (possession, aquisition license) that is easy peasy to get, and is valid for 5 years. Private sales of long guns do not have to be registered with the government. Handguns? Way, way different story!

Yes.
Its called "Stalking" there to differentiate it from "Fox Hunting" (horses & Hounds). There are boards a bit like this one for it also.
is probably the most commonly known. You might want to log on & poke about for some real world information. For example "suppressors" aren't "evile" in the U.K. & some places used to require them because of something called the "Noise Abatement Acts"! Many hunters use them as a matter of course.

It's a point of disinformation to say there are no firearms in Europe, or the U.K.

Its a long, slow tedious & somewhat pricey process when you add all the bits together, but its perfectly doable.
Poor comparison, but the closest analog I can think of here in the U.S. Is NFA (Class 3 "destructive devices) firearms regulations.

I don't know what its like recently but I had a cordial long term relationship with my local "firearms Sergeant".

Yes Deer hunting is quite a 'big thing'

There is legislation regarding what calibre / bullet size can be used for each species, but basically 308 can do all species.

Pretty much all land is privately owned and 'managed'.
To go stalking (deer hunting) you do not need any special certificate or special gun licence, you just need to have a rifle of the correct calibre for the species
and the landowners permission (and pay whatever the estate charges for a days stalking)

You do not need to, but you can 'do' a DSC (Deer Stalking Certificate) which is a 2-day course teaching stalking and butchering and ensuring you can shoot accurately enough. Once you are certified / witnessed as having stalked and shot a certain number then you can take the level 2 exam.
