Please note there are restrictions regarding the use of airguns for those who possess a criminal record.
The applicable legislation is replicated below for guidance.
Section 21 Firearms Act
Section 21 prohibits the possession of a firearm and ammunition (under any circumstances) by a person who has been Convicted of a crime and sentenced to a term of imprisonment (or its equivalent for youth persons) of 3 months or more. The prohibition applies in all shooting circumstances, including handling and firing at an approved shooting club where a certificate is not ordinarily required. It also applies to the possession or use of other categories of firearms and ammunition such as AIRGUNS or shotgun cartridges for which a certificate is not needed.
A sentence of 3 months to 3 years attracts a 5 year ban, shorter sentences mean no ban. Over 3 years means a lifetime ban.
