had the firearms officer round this evening regarding shotgun renewal.
while he was here i mentioned that i would be moving within the near future, and at what point did i need to notify them of the new address etc, and the process for moving the caninet and guns. his response was, to take the guns out, and put them in the local rfd. then go back remove cabinet take to new home and refix, ring the FLO same day, and notify of new address, then go back the next day to the rfd and collect guns. Said he wasnt particularly bothered about checking the cab before i put the guns in, he will come at some point after i have got the cab and guns in.
now to me this seems a bit of a faff? can i not just take cab out, take to new house with guns in, then refix and ring them to tell them ive moved?
I am moving approx 5 minute drive up the road, so dont see why this would be a problem, especially as he doesnt want to see the cab empty to ensure its ok before i put the guns in??
And this was after he told me i will be losing the available calibres i have if i dont buy the guns to fill them before firearms is up for renewal!!
Anyone got any comments?
