I have been trying, in vain, to find 2 particular MHA notifications w.r.t. import of AR. If anybody has any idea about these notifications, do help. Otherwise I'll just file an RTI and get it from MHA. The notifications are:

1) SO 667(e) dated 12/09/1985, and
2) SO 831(e) dated 02/08/2002.

Regards


Jeff Cooper advocated four basic rules of gun safety:
1) All guns are always loaded. Even if they are not, treat them as if they are.
2) Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
3) Keep your finger off the trigger till your sights are on the target.
4) Identify your target, and what is behind it.

In stead of a copy, you can just go down to Coorg and apply for an exemption certificate from the local licensing authority - it is issued in lieu of an arms license. AFAIK even after you get a copy of the relevant notification you would have to follow the same process as these exemption certificates can only be issued in Coorg Distt.

Cheers!

One more for clarity's sake....

SUB.- Arms Act and Rules - Semi-automatic .22 Bore rifles - Grant of license to members of rifle club/Association.

I am directed to refer to your letter No. 7222-R/VIII-B-644L/67, dated 20.11.1967 on the subject mentioned above and to say that the provision in section 13(3)(a)(ii) of the Arms Act, it would be observed, does not make any distinction as to the type of .22 bore rifles in respect of which a license shall be granted under this provision. As such, licenses under provision of the Act shall be granted in respect of all types of .22 bore rifles (including semi-automatic type). It may, however, be noticed that the use of the weapons covered by a license issued under this provision of the Act, is to be restricted to target practice only.

(GOI/MHA Letter No.F.13/7/68-P.IV dated..... 1968 to the Secretary to the Govt. of U.P., Home (Police-B.II) Department, Lucknow).

For quick reference.... Section 13(3)(a)(ii) of the Arms Act 1959.....
13 (3) The licensing authority shall grant -
(a) a license under section 3 where the license is required -
....(ii) in respect of a point 22 bore rifle or air rifle to be used for target practice by a member of a rifle club or rifle association licensed or recognised by the Central Government;
