When I go out stalking I sometimes leave home around 3 am
I load my car up the night before with all but my rifle. The car is locked,alarmed and immobilised and parked under my bedroom window on the drive behind the closed gates. I have a locked case in the car with ammo and rifle bolt.
My cabinets are in the loft so I remove my rifle the night before and have it in its case in the spare bedroom behind the bed.
All the doors are locked and the house is alarmed.
Now if say at around 8pm there is a knock at the door and I find the police there to make an unannounced visit to inspect my guns and their security.
How do you think they would react to the rifle not being in the cabinet ?
