For reasons that are not really relevant here, I am essentially in a position where I will be moving from my current residential and will be moving in with a friend for an undefined period pending acquiring a new place.
This may be only for a month or two or it may be 4 or 5. I really do not know.
My long term friend and shooting partner lives in a block of flats. He holds FAC.
His neighbour (literally next door) who is also a long term friend is where i will be staying for this indeterminate duration but is a non FAC holder.
My question is, is it possible to have my rifles put on his FAC (in the next door flat) so they can be legally stored in his safe until I find another property.
Placing them in the hands of an RFD is not practical as there are no RFD's in the immediate area and if I return home at 0300 hrs, there is nowhere secure to store.
If I press him, my friend will let me fit my safe so long as I make good but this also sames a bit unhelpful having to redecorate an entire room so everything matches especially if 4 weeks later I move out! He is a bit OCD LOL......
Getting them added temporarily seems a good idea.
I guess his FAC could be conditioned for storage only and I could also render the firearms unusable by using appropriate padlocks or trigger locks etc.
Anyone been in a similar position.
The force involved is TVP (Thames Valley). This isnt so you can slate them off, it is just so you know and have specific dealings with them re something of this nature.
Any comments appreciated
