    Cabinet inspection

    Hi just looking for clarification parse , I've fitted my cabinet and ammo safe and waiting for inspection by feo however I've been told by a lady at firearns licencing that I can't get my rifle till its been inspected ?? Is this true? It doesn't seen right

    If it wasnt checked, how would they know it was safe to keep a firearm stored in it?

    B that same token when I had my sgc before I moved abroad I had the cabinet fitted avd 2 guns in it for 2 months before it was inspected and that was fine then??

    If your fac is all in order then the seller of the rifle can legally transfer your rifle to you.
    However, as per david1976 above, if your feo finds a rifle in the cabinet Before he has checked that it can't be ripped off the wall etc. then he isn't going to be happy.

    Im presuming this is your first firearm certificate ??
    If so how do you expect to purchase a firearm without a certificate.

    i put a post up a while back with the same kind of situation this is what the fac accompanying letter said,

    Prior to acquiring any firearms you must have a gun cabinet installed at your home address- please
    contact (**********) at (***********) once you have installed one and they will arrange for an inspection to be carried out.
    you MUST NOT ACQUIRE any weapons until you have suitable security in place.

    after a bit of advice from the forum i contacted the local office and the officer did say as long as there is adequate security installed and i am happy with the installation then i could purchase a firearm.
    ​i appreciate all areas have a different view on this matter

    cant do no harm to contact them for clarification though,

    so did you get issued with a fac ( in your hand) prior to having a cabinet, or have you moved house.
