I am about to be posted abroad for 3 years and my FAC will expire while I am away. This happened the last time I was away and it was a real hassle getting sorted out when I returned (I had to get the rifle and shotgun shipped back to a Gunshop and then go through the whole initial issue of FAC once I was back). This time I will be leaving my rifle and shotgun in UK. But as I have no idea where I will be coming back to I do not know which Police force to approach. Currently I am under North Yorkshire Police (pretty fair and efficient). We have strong links with Fife, although no fixed abode there. I have tried to renew my FAC early but the Police won't do this.
What should I do? Grateful for any help
