Pistols were made illegal in 1997 (with specific exceptions). You can have an autoloader shotty (subject to approval and the issue of a home offcie licence) provided it only holds 3 rounds in the mag. If you want to have a rifle then you have to give a very good reason to the police and be in a rifle club (and be rather well off).

I used to be in a practical shooting club in the UK in the 1980s. Great fun...until came the Hungerford massacre and our toys got taken away.
