Close, but by the end of book 7 it's 1998.
Also, Hogwarts is in Scotland, not England or Britain or wherever most people think it is.


The Ministry of Magic is in London, though...

I'm pretty sure there were guns in 1997.

Only certain watches don't work, wind up watches do.

I'm not saying that the wands are weak. Most firearms aren't modern technology. They should work within Hogwarts simply because they aren't using technology to make them work. Just gunpowder.

The hammer hits the bullet igniting the gunpowder and the force of that in a small chamber forces the bullet out of the barrel

Yeah. So. Long story short. Guns should work in hogwarts.

i would guess there's a ward against projectiles, think about how little people actually got hurt from explosions. and with potions class and fire spells and stuff, things were probably a bit explosive. so the gunpowder would explode but i think magic would stop the bullet doing any damage

If Voldemort was such a threat I still don't understand why the Ministry of Magic didn't cooperate more with the regular government and get the SAS to kill him

STORYTIME!   
   
I was once watching Potter Puppet Pals, and I was watching the Trouble at Hogwarts episode, where Harry, Ron and Hermione shoot Voldemort with AK-47s. I think to myself, "Wait, so why didn't they actually just do that in the first place?"   
My father, who was allegedly sleeping on the couch behind me, wakes up and says, "BECAUSE MUGGLE WEAPONRY IS USELESS AGAINST DARK MAGIC. IDIOT."   
   
I legit got schooled by my father in Harry Potter.

Actually, in Harry Potter it is the 20th Century, as the final book and film is based in 1997 and 1998. Do your homework OP.

Agreed, magic is nice and all, but a 240 grain .45 caliber round traveling at 950 FPS will drop most dark wizards before they can even raise their wand.

Well first of all its the UK...guns and UK dont go together   
   
Second, HP is set in the 90's, therefore not 21st century

Yes, it is in 1999.

How's that supposed to work out, anyway? The started 1990ish, so +8 would still be 1998.

In HP 5 Harry writes Sirius a letter in which he writes that Dudley destroyed a Playstation, a new console. The PSOne came out around 1996, if I'm not mistaken.
