    new firearms register system back home ?

    May i ask if any the lads back home (Scotland) have heard or been told of a new firearms register/system coming in soon?(a change over of systems causing delays)

    I have a very good friend who has sacome to some problems with his renewall,he lives back home in Glasgow and one of the reasons given to him was that the FEO whose visited him stated " we have a new firearms register/computer system" coming in soon so you need to blah blah.

    He has now been told as he will not have his cert back in time,he will not have a certificate and he will have to store all his rifles/shotguns etc with a RFD, now thats a big problem as he is Registered disabled and the cost of this could cause him problems (IE: holding on to his rifles etc) as the costs of this can be very expensive.

    thanks

    they should issue a temporary cert . If not he should demand they pay his storage costs as it's their incompetence that is causing the problem , get quotes from dealers to hit them with.

    totally against the home office guidelines ,they are making him certificateless by their own actions .demand a temp certificate asap and report this as a formal complaint to the police commisioner,his msp and get what ever shooting org he belongs to involved.see if the local paper,s interested as a disabled person being victimised by police disorganisation ,not of his doing .see if david from basc has a response /is aware of this register.

    I've not heard anything about that ..... and a few local lads, have just applied for and got variations quite fast.

    Maybe I will find out when I apply for my renewals.

    The only changes I have heard of recently is to RFDs registers heard of no changes to certificate holders, is it possibly anything to do with Police Scotland and the fact that we only have one force throughout Scotland now, there was some talk in the early days of centralising firearm licensing but I just put that down to the rumour mill.

    Announced on 3rd September (as one of 13 public bills to be introduced 'shortly') is the Air Weapons and Licensing Bill (Scotland).

    From what I've read the current NFLMS (UK) system continues for Firearms and Shotgun Licensing as before. This function needs to be integrated with the rest of the country.

    Police Scotland will have a separate stand-alone AW licensing system which is now being developed & system tested.
    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.

    as far as i know . the only change is to us the RFDs .we have to have a electronic register in place by december 2014.
    yes there will be a air rifle licence implimented in june 2015.
    as far as police updating anything i doubt it. the whole system is slowed down due to the fact that they are understaffed and all the older lads who had a idea of what they were doing have all retired up here in grampian.

    How are they hoping to police air rifle licensing ? Do they realise just how many air rifles are kicking about, a lot of them completely forgotten about.

    That's going to be a real headache, I don't really have a problem with the licensing of them but how will they manage to police it.
