Thread: Rifle storage

  1. #1

    Rifle storage

    Do rifles have to be stored in your own residence? Can't be stored, for example, with a relation (parents) if you retain sole access to cabinet keys etc...

    I've done this in the past and the firearms dept were happy with the arrangement, probably best to give yours a call just to confirm

    It's not a problem. I live with my mum and she doesn't particularly like guns, so mine are at my dads in a separate cabinet to his. Doesn't bother me too much as all the reloading gear is at his anyway.

    When I filled in the application form it asks where the firearms will be stored. Just make sure you are the only 1 who has access to the cabinet!

    Yes its fine I currently have a friends two rifles on my ticket, but they are still stored in his cabinet at his farm, I just have his keys bolts and ammo stored in my safe. I sent a letter to licensing prior to doing this and they confirmed this was fine.
    They are in fact, men apart.

    I believe that the police would have to inspect and approve any residence that they were stored. As long as the police have inspected and approved the location and cabinet I do not think there would be an issue.

    Thanks. I'm relocating to Ireland for a few yrs for work. rather than go through the hassle of moving them abroad, I'll look to store them at the folks house and apply for a new license in Ireland. good excuse for a new rifle I guess....

    You say that you will be relocating so you won't even be resident in the same country that's a different matter then Blaire. I think that you will need to consider either taking them with you or lodging them in long term storage with a RFD. You really need to speak to your firearms department and explain your situation to them rather than asking for opinions on the website as only they can tell you how they will look at the matter.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Why look for new rifle when you'll have ones you own already sitting doing nowt ... Can't see FEO happy with that
    Best to speak to them direct see what options are

    Can ask on here you could get heap o different answers
    Speak to / ask those that count & cover yer ass ... So you don't fall foul of anyone
