Thread: Maximum Number Of Guns

    Maximum Number Of Guns

    Hi All,

    As per the title really, I currently hold 2 centrefires and 4 shotguns. A side by side, an o/u and a semi in 12 bore and a 20 bore o/u for my wife and daughter to use on clays.

    I've seen another 12 bore side by side that I really fancy but it's more of a collectors piece and I dare say it wouldn'the see that much use. I don'the want to have to sell another to make space for it.

    Is there a maximum number of guns that we can hold? Somewhere in the back of my mind I'm sure I've read that more than 7 and the house needs to be alarmed but I'm not sure.

    I'm going to sound out my FEO but I'must just after some knowledge before hand.

    Thanks,

    Jim

    Just buy it. As long as you keep it secure, thats good enough

    As long as your cabinet is big enough, you should be fine. Many folks squeeze 7 into a 6-gun cabinet!

    Some forces (used to?) put limits on the number of guns you can have before you need an alarm etc. I know Avon & Somerset did when I was there.

    Don't think TV do, but as my house is alarmed I didn't bother to check.

    Dont even ask him to clarify, can of worms

    you are well under any nominal level that would require higher level of security and even then it is on a case by case basis!

    as above
    just get it

    good reason is the ONLY thing they can consider
    word that well and make sure the answer can't be "well you already have xxx why dont you just use that one!?"

    Your SGC allows you to 'Possess shotguns' with no regard to numbers. Just buy it and let them know as per usual. I'd be giving them no opportunity to add any caveat to the rights your SGC bestows on you. You jumped through enough hoops to get it in the first place

    Agreed, but as it's a gun not a rifle, "good reason" isn't needed... Cash and space are the only limiters!

    Cheers Guys,

    Looks like an early Christmas present is coming my way then. I don't think I'll bother even asking the question of the firearms team.
