    Collecters Ticket

    Swampy or Leagle, perhaps you could help me on this one.
    Due to a finacial crisis (two daughters marrying in two years and rising fuel prices) I have decided not to rejoin my target shooting club.
    I have two .303s, a No.4 and a very neat SMLE Officers rifle in pretty well new condition. These were both made by BSA and I have a .243 and a 6.5x55 stalking rifle, also by BSA.
    I have contacted my FEO regarding the situation and asked about a collecters ticket and he will make enquiries.
    Before the financial situation arose it was my intention to purchace a Martini Henry and a Long Lee also by BSA and would hope to in the future.

    I would like to hang on to the .303s if possible and wonder what the criteria are for the said ticket

    collectors etc

    these are exerpts from the above document. It is fine for you to collect firearms, this is a good reason to possess them, you can show that you are collecting becuase of what you already possess.


    firearms they choose for these purposes.
    On the other hand, a simple wish to own
    a particular sort of firearm is not in itself
    “good reason” without further supporting
    evidence of intentions.

    Collection of firearms
    13.51 The collecting of firearms by a
    genuinely interested collector should be
    accepted as a “good reason” for the grant
    of a firearm certificate. There should be no
    blanket policy to prevent the collecting of
    modern firearms (though collectable firearms
    will tend to be of the Second World War or
    earlier eras) nor should arbitrary limits be
    imposed on the number or type of firearms.
    However, a single firearm is unlikely to be
    acceptable unless it forms part of a collection
    of other exhibits (but see paragraph 9.17).
    Modern reproductions of vintage arms may
    be collected, especially to fill gaps in
    collections of older firearms. There are no
    normal calibres for collecting, and collections
    may include field artillery, tanks and other
    armoured fighting vehicles. Vintage handguns
    are dealt with in Chapter 9. Collections may
    include firearms disguised as other objects
    that would otherwise be prohibited under
    section 5(1A) of the 1968 Act. Ammunition
    may be collected of itself, including
    expanding, incendiary or armour-piercing
    ammunition or explosives that would
    otherwise be prohibited under section 5(1A)
    of the 1968 Act.
