Probably the most relevant as it's the most recent: http://www.opsi.gov.uk/si/si2004/20040702.htm

Looks like the proof reader need to 'do the decent thing' then.

Go to www.opsi.gov.uk and do a search on "shotgun", there are tons of references.

Also used in Australian and New Zealand legislation.

Some of it is poor proof reading of the 1968 Act, e.g. the 1994 Scotland firearm fees order. "Shot gun" does however appear in Guernsey, Jersey and Manx legislation.

A lot of legislation based on UK law actually uses the term "smooth-bore gun" or "smooth bore gun" and doesn't mention shotguns at all, which to my mind is actually a better method altogether as some shotguns have rifled barrels.

There's loads of references on the web to one word. Doesn't mean it's right, even if 'google' asks me 'do I mean shotgun' in a search.

The written copy of the OED I have still says it's two words as does the primary legislation, so I guess I'll stick with that. Cool

Anyway, as I was picked up by the spelling geheime staatzpolizei (2 words as well), I made the mistake of picking you up Smile

The etymological development of many words which are frequently used in conjunction is:

Two words, leads to hyphenated or apostrophised use, which leads to one single compound word.

So you're all right ! Razz
Hurrah ! Declare a half holiday (half-holiday) !
Let's (Let us) all find some thing (some-thing, something) else to bicker about !

Carrot (Doc?) I do despair. What do posts 1 and 2 of this thread talk about?
