Lomax v Chief Constable of the Police Service of Scotland

Firearms – Variation to firearm certificate. Sheriff Court. Allowing an appeal against a sheriff's decision directing a chief police officer to vary a firearm certificate to permit an applicant to purchase a six-shot revolver, the chief constable having earlier refused to do so, the court held that the sheriff erred in law in failing to take into account, in an application for a 6-shot revolver for the humane dispatch of deer, that a 2-shot revolver was sufficient for that purpose.
