Hello from UK!

Howdy folks. I've lurked for a bit, but thought I'd better do the decent thing and sign up!
I've quietly been reading up on here and answering most of my own questions I had.
It's costing me a fortune though! After reading a few threads on cleaning Glocks I've had to order a few items international from the States! Still. I'm looking forward to trying them out.
Thanks & "hello!"

Wetboy.

Fortunately I'm in Northern Ireland. Pistols are actually banned in any other part of the UK.

Knew that. Just wondered which part. Two fingers to the UK gun laws!

Curious? More dangerous there?

Not at all, just very very strict gun laws.
I'm no expert, but here's my take on it... There were two spree killings in the 80's and 90's and the government response was to introduce a ban of some long weapons, and finally all pistols over .22
Because of the terrorist problem in Northern Ireland, we had strict gun control even before these shootings, so I guess they didn't see the need to apply the pistol law?
Here in NI, even a low powered air rifle has to be applied for, and entered on a firearms licence.

A wise and judicious decision, around here.
