|A quick reminder that if you own an airgun you are going to have to have a license for it by 1 January 2017 or you will be breaking the law.|
There is lots of information about how to apply for a license on the Police Scotland website or this Scottish Government website.
Both the Police and shooting organisations are recommending people apply for a license no later than 31 October 2016 to allow time for it to be processed.
If you no longer want to have an airgun you can surrender it at a police station but there is no compensation available so before you do that consider whether a friend or relative might be interested in taking up the sport. Also, see our Marketplace section.
