    FAC application, one more question please...

    Right, my FAC application forms are ready to be sent, i'm not sure about one thing though...
    As a SGC holder, do i have to state this, or put down the shotguns i own?

    Thanks in advance!

    Not unless you wish to renew your shotgun certificate early to make it coterminous (start and end same date) as your new firearm certificate.
    That would cost you and extra 10 and a bit more form filling.

    as uncle norm says, also coterminous is cheaper on renewal.
    DONT START

    I got my SGC in December last year, is it possible to renew already? and if that's the case, do i have to send it together with my FAC application?

    Yes you can do it now. If you don't want to send it in with the FAC application just put a note in saying that you will give it to the FEO when he/she does the home visit.

    Be aware that the law allows a shotgun certificate to be made coterminous with a firearm certificate but not vice versa. So if you leave your shotgun certificate to renewal you will have to pay 40 and if you ask for it to be made coterminous, it will be valid for a few months only. If you do it now it will cost you an extra 10 and be valid until your new FAC expires. SGC renewal 40, FAC renewal 40, coterminous renewal of FAC and SGC 50. Best buy is spend the extra 10 now and do the extra bit of paperwork.

    As Norm said above. I did this (although with three years left on SGC) and glad I did. Less hassle with forms and cheaper in the long run.

    +1 for coterminus i had my sgc 2 years when i applied for FAC and my feo advised as norm said so 60 quid got me both certs expiring at the same time ,in five years.which with the current attempts by rabid antis ,sorry police commisioners to quadruple the price gives piece of mind atb
