Default Re: Break in to workshop.

As Bazz says, there is a lobby for stricter air rifle regulations - but that is just for England & Wales. NI already has the strictest of regulations(obviously) for all forms of firearms. And Scotland has recently implemented strict air rifle licencing regulations, following an amnesty a couple of years ago. Prior to that, some feckless nerd in a block of flats in Glasgow had fired off an air rifle & hit a wee child on the street, who died. That caused a great outcry.
Many years ago, I used to shoot rabbits & pigeons with a bog-standard cheapo .22 Diana type air rifle,(similar to Rob's), and I can assure you that they can easily puncture soft tissue at 30 to 50 yds.
My advice to anyone who presently owns any sort of air rifle or pistol - is to purchase a BS designed steel cabinet & secure it inside your house(stairs cupboard, loft, etc.) using heavy duty screws or bolts into the house framing or flooring. Yep - a lot of fannying about, and BS cabinets aren't cheap, but remember the Glasgow Nerd !

Regards, David
