    Advice

    My advice would be to do nothing unless you have a good relationship with your firearms officer and then have a quite word. If a complaint is made against you then they [Police] may consider investigating the allegation and only if they review the FAC issue consider taking further advice - feel free to contact me at the office on 01372 720077 - I am a solicitor specialising in Firearms and Appeals against police decisions in that regard, hope it all works out.

    stav,

    do you like your guns, if so speak to the feo and explain your story. don't sit and wait for them to a come a knocking as when they do they will come with a form in triplicate and they will be gone.

    i hope they don't but it really needs to be on your record mate that you went to them first. I am sure some will disagree as some do but you've heard a very tame version, by the time Chinese whispers has done the damage and the wrong person hears about it then god only knows what pooh you could be in

    good luck f,

    ps always walk away from the confrontation 100% of the time no matter what he says to you.

    Talk to the FEO and suggest that, to remove any doubt, you will voluntarily place your firearms in the safe keeping of a friendly local RFD for the duration. Just the offer might be enough, but if not, best to put them there yourself than have them turn up with a warrant and whisk them away to god knows where, never to be seen again.

    You can't threaten someone with guns that you don't have access to. Make sure you have made it clear to him that your weapons are safe, that way he can't claim he's afraid of you using them on him.

    Speak to your FEO and ask their advice. If you want to be really safe then put your firearms in separate storage (with an RFD) until the issue is resolved. That way if there's any allogations then you can say you had the firearms out of harms way.

    A guys missus was sent down recently after she made similar allogations against him and he informed the police he had put the firearms into storage 6 months before the divorce as he suspected she would make false allogations - she was done for wasting police time!

    Store all your guns and ammunition with an RFD straight away and tell no one.
    If they make an allegation you can then instantly discredit them by informing the police that your guns have been in storage for weeks.
    This would only work to your advantage if they don't know you've stored them.

    Would anyone immediately book their car into long term storage at their local garage because 'someone' might allege they were going to threaten to use it to injure said 'someone'? Would they deposit all knives and sharp impliments, (garden tools, screwdrivers, etc. etc.), at the scrap dealers for the same reason?

    Speak with the FEO and voice your concerns that false allegations might be made against you if you believe that might be the case. Follow it up in writing if neccessary and keep copies. Speak with a solicitor for the same reason and ask that a record of the meeting/conversation be made.

    Protect yourself by all means, but when law-abiding citizens go running in fear of those with criminal intent then you have ask yourself who is calling the shots.

    I've never heard of the police turning up mob handed and confiscating cars or sharp implements when it was alledged that somebody had threatened to use them to attack somebody.
    I have, however, heard of several cases of certifcates being revoked and firearms seized, sometimes permanently, when unsubstantiated allegations had been made regarding the threat of them being used to harm someone.
    I stand by my advice, mine would be in storage immediatley, before anything went any further, including contacting the FLO. What happens if the FEO decides to go on the side of caution and force you to put them in storage to remove the risk? surley it would look better for you to have acted first and stored them of your own free will.
    I can promise that it will be easier to get your guns back from an RFD that you had stored them with than to get them back from the police after they have taken them for whatever reason.

    I can offer advice on this one from personal experience, albeit many years past, I was ousted from the marital home, & within 24 hours had a knock on the door where I was staying( I was out)........... advising me that my cert had been pulled, & to arrange separate storage conditions, back then things were a little less stressful on plods part, but I would certainly back the above advice matey!.
