After not seeing an elderly friend and neighbour for a couple of days, my father and I unfortunately found he had passed away at home within the above timeframe - fortunately peacefully and in his bed by the way we found him.
After the necessary medical visits the police attended as is compulsary, and I informed them of the whereabouts of my friend's gun cabinet. I also notified them of additional "off ticket" shotguns he'd told me about just recently, and their location on the premises. They were grateful, commenting that it's a common occurence amongst the older generation.
They've said I can enter the "on ticket" guns on my certificate whilst his affairs are put in order, but have recommended the "off ticket" guns be destroyed.
Is the destruction of his "off ticket" shotguns a legal requirement?
Can they not be entered on my certificate somehow too?
If so, how would I go about arranging this?
Thanks for any advice.
RIP old friend, keep your powder dry....
