Pistol nut gets 3yrs.

A WEAPONS enthusiast has been jailed for three-and-a-half years for smuggling a pistol into the UK.

Darren Lake, 34, was caught with a blank-firing 9mm handgun and a butterfly knife at Humberside Airport after holidaying in Lanzarote with his mum.

Experts said the pistol could have been converted for live rounds. More guns and a samurai sword were found at his home.

Judge John Dowse, at Grimsby crown court, told Lake, of Rotherham, South Yorks: "I cannot turn away from the seriousness of these offences."
