Bit of a strange 1
If the police come out and decide ur security is not wot they would expect/up to standard, wot happens next?
Would they take guns off u? or ask u to put them in storage until u can improve security?
Can they fine u or point against u at renewal?
I realise the safe storage is up to me and i have to justify it
Basically i'm moving home soon, and my house sold far quickier than i really expected (4 days) i've got a big renovation job on with my new house so living in a static caravan joined on to an outbuilding.
I have spoke to firearms dept previously as had caravan floor up and was going to weld an anchor plate to chasis but they said they'd prefer cabinets in the out building. The outbuilding has my toilet/shower etc in it so strictly speaking is not occupied i will be out and in often.
I'm more worried about the security of the outbuilding itself, old fashioned single glazed windows with no locks and poor quality door locks, got the sparky booked in to put an alarm on it and seperate alarm in the locked cupboard where gun safes will be.
I think with alarm it should be ok and possibly some window locks (but they could easily break the glass so a bit pointless?) but looking like i could be in for 2 weeks afore he can come out to alarm it all.
The chances of anyone breaking in are tiny, its the type of place u'd otherwise not bother locking doors or taking keys out ur motor.
Guns will be well locked up and cabimets well anchored to wall/concrete floor in a locked cupboard (but u could soon kick throu door if u really wanted) and same with external doots/windows but then again if someone wants in they will get in
I have read throu the relevant areas of security handbook and don't think i'm far away but with alarm i think would be well covered just wether poice agree and if they come out in the initail 2 weeks to check (not even sure if they come out to check in my area anymore, never checked any of my previous moves)
