Thread: Advice required:Temporary storage of firearms to another licenced firearms holder

    Advice required:Temporary storage of firearms to another licenced firearms holder

    A neighbour has asked to store his rifles and shotguns in my cabinets,as there has been a domestic at his house and the police were called during the Christmas period.
    I am wondering what is the requirement under theses circumstances do you have to transfer them over onto your license as there is no provision for the reason of storage,it states lent,given sold.but none of these apply.

    And also do you have to inform the firearms dept of the temporary storage is there any notification required if so is that the normal 7 days period

    How long is temporary storage before it becomes an issue on my licence

    Although I have held my Certificate for a number of years I have never come accross this issue

    Thanks

    Jon

    You can do shotguns under 'lent' and write them onto your license (and notify too obviously), as long as you have adequate storage space. You cannot do rifles - period (unless you have an open 'slot' for that calibre). Straight to an RFD for storage - c£1 per day per rifle. He should also notify the police he has done this. He can remove them from the RFD at any time and put them back there should he want to go shooting. He may choose not to let his partner know this has been done, but the Police should be informed in the circumstances. Whatever the decision, he should act promptly.

    Thanks for the swift reply,
    I was under the impression Storage with another Firearms cert holder was acceptable, is there any exception other than RFD as I dont have an extra slot on my license.at the moment.
    He was informed by the FAO to remove them from the premises and place them in storage but as yet has not, that was at christmas.will in that include Guns and ammunition to be removed.

    In desperation he has asked if I can store them, on a temporary basis.

    As already stated, rifles will have to go to the rfd unless you have slots for them.
    Shotties can be lent to you and inform fld as normal.

    I will explain the situation to my neighbour, I can see an issue arising as he has not complied with their instruction of removing the firearms from the premises

    thanks again for all your help, thats what makes SD.

    Sorry if it is pedantic but.....


    on what grounds have the police asked him to remove a legally held firearm from his premises?

    If he is considered a threat then they would/should/could have seized them.
    if he is not, as I suspect from the blasé approach, then they have no right to make such a request.

    now if he is a nice compliant chap he could of course present them with both sets of keys to his cabinet
    personally if the request is unlawful I would not be complying unless they are very clear in what it is they think they are preventing and why that prevention should be up to the owner and potential felon!!

    if he is not of sound mind and cannot possibly control himself then he should not have the weapons and they should have never have granted the FAC in the first place or should be currently revoking it and seizing the firearms

    clearly they don't seem it as significant as that


    have they requested removal of all kitchen knives as well?!
