Thread: rifle on two FACs

  1. #1

    rifle on two FACs

    I'd be grateful for advice on this:

    I have a .22lr.

    A friend has a slot of one on his fac.

    Can we sign my rifle into his fac and both use it?

    And if we can, can the rifle also move between the two cabinets?

    Yes no problem at all with that but he just can't have acess to your other firearms

    I know from experience, that if you do that, the police may well take the view that you have handed possession to him and hence reliquished possession yourself. What you need to do is get the police to list the rifle on his FAC and on yours in the section 'firearms possessed'. Then you both have possession. This is what my brother and I managed to achieve so we could pass a rifle backwards and forwards as we needed, with no requirement to notify the police of transfer. My brother and I live 300 miles apart, so this arrangement was agreeable to both Avon & Somerset and Cleveland. And there are numerous married couples, and son and fathers, who have joint possession (but obviously that's within the same household).

    Mungo, simply enter the rifle onto his certificate in Table 1 with the reason as 'Joint Possession'. Then both write in to your respective FLDs giving details of the 'transaction'. Never had any problem in doing it that way and I've shared many firearms both ways in that manner, including cross-border to different FLDs.

    I have a shared rifle with my old man, we both just sent a covering letter in with the notification explaining it was to be shared.
