I thought a SGC only covered smooth bore, but if you've checked with you're local firearms officer it should be fine with just the SGC - they are the ones in the know.

From what I understand, yes, rifled chokes are not allowed. Has to be a 100% smooth barrel.
I also thought you needed a FAC for shotgun slugs?

Thats right, it cant have a lock or mechnism you have to engage/disengage to close the blade AND the blade has to be under 3 inches.
So I bought a Spyderco UK Penknife. Its clipped in my pocket as I type.

There are some double magnum semi-autos i've heard of, where you can fit 3 shells in the magazine (using 2 3/4inch sh...
