    If you moving back to parents house why hand guns in for safe storage, just do a change of address ?
    Good luck with it.

    Sorry to learn of your parting. Sadly it is often prudent to place guns with a RFD to avoid malicious allegations being substantiated. However if there is no risk of your wife doing such a thing, then there is nothing in Law to prevent you from leaving your guns secured in the matrimonial home, for the time being, with the agreement of your wife, as long as only you have access to the security cabinet.
    You are not abliged to reside at the address where your guns are kept, however you will need to notify the police of your change of address.
    If the parting is likely to be permanent then it would be sensible to move your security cabinet to your new address as soon as practicable.
    You are not obliged to return your certificates for change of address as it would be updated on NFLMS, however you may wish to return them so that the new address is shown on your certificate. There is no charge for this as long as you return your current certificate to the licensing unit.
    If there is the slightest risk that the parting may turn acrimonious in the short term, then by all means place your guns with an RFD so that any false accusation against you, relating to alleged misuse of guns, could be rebutted and shown to be malicious. I hope that this will not happen in your circumstances.
    Best wishes. U Nm.

    If it were me i would make sure everything was in perfect order and get the guns to an RFD for safe keeping. One suggestion of he said this she did that and you will not have a leg to stand on get rid of the guns now for a few months could save you a load of hassle later on. She cant accuse you of anything to do with the guns if they are some were else and not even you can touch them .I would not even tell her i had done it.

    Like has been said guns and ammo to RFD, chill and resolve your situation and once you have a place you can call 'home' look at moving the guns in and ammending you FAC. I would also say to let the FLO know that you are putting your gear into storage and to provide them with you temporary address.

    Foxhornet, my advice is to contact your local FA dept indicating your new address, in order that they may inspect it PRIOR to storing them at the new address, it is a breach of your FAC condition unless you do so, in the short term you could store them with a RFD, whilst your local FA dept carries out all the relevant checks on the address & it's occupants, and confirms everyting is OK, good luck

    In what way could that possibly be construed as a breach of the conditions of the FAC, unless you have an extra condition saying you have to inform them before moving the weapons?

    The condition on the FAC states that you must inform them of a permanent change of address without undue delay. The exact wording is:-

    3) The holder of the certificate must, without undue delay, inform the chief officer of police by whom the certificate was granted of any change in his permanent address.

    It doesn't say you have to tell them first does it?

    As for 6pointers "don't even tell her you've put them in storage" I'd say exactly the opposite. Make a point of telling her that the guns have been stored with an RFD. That way she can't claim that you threatened her with them. If she doesn't know they're in storage she can still claim she felt afraid of them, and that you had used the threat of them to frighten her. If you've told her they're in storage then any claim that you tried to intimidate her with the threat of them is removed. I'd put it in writing to her, with a copy to the police. Even an email would do, CCing the police. That way she can see that she hasn't got any grounds for a malicious claim.

    The route I went was to put my guns and rifles into the RFD whilst I still had access
    got all my clothes , fishing gear , pictures ,dogs etc etc out of the house whilst still on speaking terms
    from their I emptied my half of the bank account, and put the house up for sale with out her being able to buy me out, then split what was left as best we could
    if I had to start again
    so did she,
    like you say you are leaving the home and if she had told you sooner you could of got something sorted
    says to me you were not the party that wanted to end it
    personaly I don't know your situ but hav been in that same position
    so get your act together, get your gear sorted and out of the place ASAP
    life does go on and there is a mrs right out there

    So in the mean time , get out and get laid
