    Interesting. Afaik usually the feo is satisfied as long as the cabinet is out of sight of casual visitors to the property and it is fixed to the structure of the building.

    Might be worth a call to the local feo to see what he prefers (if you think he's likely to be a reasonable sort).

    You could mount the cabinet horizontally and fix through the floor to the steel chassis of the "static mobile home" or as we call the, shed.

    The full version of the firearms security handbook contains advice on people living in caravans and such structures.

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.
