    The only thing that your certificate conditions require "reasonable precautions" to be taken to prevent unauthorised access are expanding missiles, section 1 ammunition and the firearms themselves.

    Loose solid bullets and section 2 shotgun ammunition do not need to be kept secure.

    Some counties are keen to see primers and powder under lock and key as well. Powder obviously in a wooden container as opposed to a metal one.

    I think it is a legal requirement for black powder is it not?

    For blackpowder yes, nitro & pyrodex no, no legal requirements on powders, primers & non expanding bullets, any FLD's asking otherwise should be sent away with the proverbial flea in ear, it is Parliaments' prerogative to make laws, not the police despite what they appear to think.atb Tim

    With little ones getting into mischief in our house it makes sense to lock things away. As for FL clerks asking things they shouldn't, I do agree.

    Yes I totally agree, if you have mischievious children it does pay to use some commonsense and keep harmful substances out of their way. atb Tim

    I've got my primers and bullets in the ammo safe, powder on a high shelf well out of the reach of the terrors.
