Thank you for your question.

They can't come into your house without a warrant unless you invite them in.

There is no legislation whereby air weapons have to be licensed in Scotland although this is on the Scottish governments present legislative programme and is likely to become law within the next year two.

Happy to discuss further.

I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
