well after deciding a month ago that I wanted to get into stalking I have completed my DSC1, applied for my FAC, taken a rifle shooting lesson, joined a rifle club and booked my first stalk!
One thing that I seemed to have overlooked is the cabinet needed for when the FLO comes and visits.
I already have a Brattonsound 4/5 gun cabinet. It is a standard one without locking shelf and is not a rifle cabinet.
I have looked around and have found that I can buy a small cabinet for the ammo and bolt for £90 or I can go the whole hog and replace my shotgun cabinet with a rifle cabinet with lockable shelf for £180.
I only have the one shotgun so there is space in my existing cabinet. My question is do I need the extra depth a rifle cabinets gives or will a rifle fit into a standard shotgun gun cabinet? Is it worth me spending the extra £100 on a cabinet when it could go on a stalk at the moment?
