How to apply for dual calibre.

Recommended Posts

Hi,

its been a long time since I’ve posted, but this is probably the best place to get advice on this!

I now own a smallholding and am killing livestock for personal consumption.

I want to apply for a dual calibre pistol that fires both .410 shot shells and .45 long colt. (Taurus judge) It would only be used at home for point blank shots to dispatch livestock.

Before I apply, I just wondered if there is anyone out there who has one like this, and how it’s applied for?

Thanks in advance for any replies,

pete

List both calibres/one handgun on your variation with a cover note explaining the details. If there's a problem they will be in touch no doubt.

May pay to give your Firearms Dept. a ring for clarification.

Good luck, keep us posted👍

Humane dispatch . I have it on my license added after sending in the relevant letter. Should be straightforward

Yes, a long shotguns is usable, but not the best tool. Ok if just one calm animal to do that stays still. 

But a handgun has a better ability to track slight movements at close range, in confined space.

The animals also need bleeding immediately following the shot, so the ability to quickly holster the weapon in an environment when I’m trying to stay calm and focussed on the task is great. 

And then the possibility of a rapid follow up shot of ever required. I want the dual calibre as .410 is ideal for most, but for larger cattle I’d be happier with the .45
