    Yep that worked.
    ive nothing to hide but a bit worried about erosion of my rights. I'd have no problem if the police phoned me in advance and arranged a mutually convenient time to come visiting. Obviously if they had some reason to suspect that I was up to no good then fair enough (but I'm pretty sure that will never be the case)!

    When you click the link, you then need to click to go onto their home page.

    I have read the article with interest and my major query is

    " does the limited power of entry (the police DO NOT have an automatic statutory right of entry) apply to FLO's who are not warranted police officers"

    I think they cannot but could be proved incorrect.

    I think its worth reminding all family members that they do not have access or know how to gain access to your firearm storage facilities should you not be present if a visit is made.

    As far as i can see No they still have no new powers on entry but bet it could be seen as you are hiding somthing if you shut the door on them !!! after all we are the bad guys ???

    What does BASC say? Can't ask them as I can't get the link to work so can't frame the question properly.

    Just found this.

    "Importantly, shooters must understand that no new power of entry has been conferred on the police or police staff, and those undertaking a visit must provide “a clear and reasoned explanation” for doing so."
