Air Weapons and Licensing (Scotland) Act 2015

Paragraph 18 – Holders of certificates or permits with conditions

291.This paragraph allows an air weapon certificate, visitor or police permit holder to make use of the exemptions in the schedule notwithstanding any condition which may be attached to the certificate or permit. This means that a person who holds, for example, a visitor permit that permits use and possession, can take advantage of the exemption in paragraph 15 to purchase an air weapon for delivery to that person’s home country. Or, an air weapon certificate holder whose certificate has a condition limiting them to shooting for pest control purposes could separately be a member of an approved air weapon club, and shoot at the club under the exemption in paragraph 1.
