    Hi Devin

    Welcome aboard!

    This really depends on how your references come in. From my experience last month, all being well with them, within a couple of days you will be contacted by the FEO. I suspect unless it's vacation time they run the diary perhaps a week ahead.

    From the visit to papers on the mat was Friday to Wednesday for me.

    However if you have land checks etc I suspect this might take longer.

    Wiltshire are on the ball.

    Try a search of posts in this section of the forum, or have a scroll around. It's been covered on a few occasions IIRC.

    Read up on the HO Guidance chapter 13 and good luck with it

    If you have written authority from land owners that are willing to let you use the rifles and there is something on the land to shoot and your referees have returned their paperwork, you should have nothing to worry about.
    Apart from the security aspect of owning firearms/shotguns the only other thing he will talk about is what and where you are going to shoot.
    So if that is covered it will be plain sailing, good luck.

    Thanks for the replies, I have written permission and the referee forms all sorted, fingers crossed!

    Its ok to share a safe with another SGC holder but you may run into problems if you plan to keep your rifles in a safe to which your wife has access. The FEO should be able to help you out suggesting what precautions would be acceptable - such as trigger locks on the rifles or in extreme case having a separate safe to which she does not have access.

    I have a separate safe for the rifles bolted in already
