    Some good to come out of the Olympic Games

    Although it won’t help British shooters, anyone planning to visit UK from other EU states after 1 October 2011 doesn’t need to send their original European Firearm Pass to UK. Provided that a clear copy has all the relevant details shown this will be acceptable.
    This was confirmed to me yesterday by email from Grampian Police and a copy letter from BASC which confirms that the covers England Wales and Scotland but not Northern Ireland.
    It seems that the Home Office have agreed to a request from their counterparts in the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) that legislation be amended to allow the production of a copy of the EFP as an alternative to sending the original. While the impetus to change the law flows from the 2012 Games, the change will have a wider application to other sporting competitions and on visiting quarry shooters.

    Cannot quite see what the Olympics got to do with it but I concur. I asked my local force to check with the Home Office. They kindly did and they agreed originals are not needed anymore.

    To be fair I hope it will be just One of the good things to come out of the Olympics.
