    Guns seized

    after coming in from work off night shift i went to bed as usual on Saturday afternoon at about 1300,at around 1730 i was woke out of a deep sleep by Mrs steyr telling me to "get dressed and come down stairs now!"..i thought straight away something was very wrong as she would never wake me from a deep sleep,so i ran straight down stairs!.to be confronted by two very armed police officers (Mr&Mrs) with BMW x5 outside ect...i thought the worst ime in the $hite,,but what have i done??? then they said we are here to seize guns ""but not yours" they said.."the guns your holding for someone else" i showed them to my safe and gave them all his guns showing them to be safe first,..they then said ""and all his ammo and in fact anything else belonging to him" so i complied.they then asked when was the last time i had contact with him and i could only reply with 2 texts since September when he dropped the guns off,they told me to have no contact with him as they were off to see him and his certificate!!...i asked what he had done but was told that i was a good person to keep my firearms and it would not reflect on me whatsoever and that me keeping his guns was a good thing to do but now they must take them and to go back to bed and get some sleep before going to work,so off to bed i went,and they took all the guns and ammo to their x5 with the help of Mrs steyr (the next day the neighbours asked Mrs steyr what was all that about,she replied its government cutbacks they just popped in for to borrow some guns and ammo!!..i had a laugh at that!) now Aime thinking what do i do..no recipt..do i send notice within 7 days,what if ...anything ..should i say?? i would like to say one more thing..the armed police officers were very polite and professional beyond belief a credit to their force.

    OK just to re-cap a Friend (so i thought!) left his wife...,two lovely black labs that i have done posts about! (they now have a new good home!) his 8 month old girl and a 14 year old girl off a previous relationship,left his guns with me (loan/transfer..and on my ticket with notice to plod HQ).... he turned up to leave his guns with me about 10 weeks ago (05 09 2010) and that was the last i seen of him apart from two texts,and now this has happened. the only thing ime thinking of is should i have got a receipt the officer seen my certificate and they are on!! and they were notified!! they were well happy but i cant help thinking should i send a letter within 7 days saying that plod has taken them away??
