If you are asking about sentence then it is not good news.

If you fired this then they will be argued it is an imitation firearms

Firearms attract a minimum sentence of 5 years unless there are "exceptional circumstances".

The four questions in the case of Avis would be considered although if this is imitation then at least there is no risk to life or limb which helps you.

The fact that you tired it won't go down well though.

I'm very sorry.

Can I clarify anything for you?


Customer: replied 4 months ago.
when i can get back my phone??
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
but its a imitation gun ,,not real,and just protect my self...
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
basicle i whant to protect my self from the bad guys ,,and afthe i am the probleme..what its this law???
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
i can get sentence whit suspende??

Not for this realistically.

This is a firearm and you fired it on the streets of the UK.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
its not reall firea,,its just imitation,,just make noice ,i can make sombody heart
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
i can not sombody heart...its just make noice tha it....and i just protect my famalie from hulligans
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
ok thanks

Yes, I get that. That is why it is an imitation.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
ok..say i not must worry about this??

I think you probably should I'm afraid.

I hope you avoid custody obviously but it isn't guaranteed.
