apologies if this subject has been covered previously.
However, met a gentleman last week who had recently received a visit from West Yorkshire Police. They turned up at his home, with no notice, to check his firearms and premises. He wasn't home. His mother showed them his cabinets and they then rang him to request his presence so that they could have them opened. On his return they did a comprehensive check, from ammunition count to cabinet fixing and found nothing amiss. The police said they were then off to carry out the same exercise on another FAC holder. So am assuming not a one off.
Is this now normal practise?
Understand that it is perfectly legal but I thought that the police had enough problems with staffing to fit in the one check every 5 years?
Your comments please.
