Gun control campaigners have called for sports minister Kate Hoey to be sacked after she claimed shooting could help with "character building" and "personal discipline". Hoey, a keen advocate of shooting, caused outrage earlier this year when she attacked the ban on handguns imposed after the Dunblane massacre.

The gunsmith specializes in revolvers, and it takes him 12 days to fabricate a weapon.

It is no longer shameful to be a shooter. Barely five years after Dunblane, memories of the horror are fading and the signs are that gun culture is returning to Scotland. Yesterday, at a gun club in Fife, eight women spent the afternoon blasting away with shotguns at clay pigeons.
