I would seek assistance from a shooting association. Doing the right thing should not be justification for the police to force you to sell up.

Sounds about right, loads of protection for the scum bags and nothing for good decent people!

Sorry to hear of it and good luck with your sale but before selling up have you had any legal advice or assistance from someone like BASC

New chairman of BASC (peter glenser) is a barrister specialising in the law relating to firearms. So a approach direct to him whether through membership or as a paying client may well be worth some time. I wouldn't be selling a thing just yet. Lodge FAC items with RFD and see where you can resolve things with the police. Good luck.

I think you should get professional advice before you do anything. Even ignoring the financial loss incurred by selling off all your kit at second hand prices, losing your ticket will be held as information by the police. If you haven't done anything wrong you shouldn't be penalised.

This is terrible news and discusting police attitude.
I do hope you get some legal advice before you make your mind up on selling.

What information do you base that on ?
The OP has (wisely) given no details as to what has actually occurred, nor has he made any allegation of police unfairness/misconduct etc.
I would join those members urging the OP to get good quality advice and support, before making any decisions regarding his shooting equipment.

I have no knowledge of this particular situation but just think how easy it would be, in the heat of the moment, to say 'well if you're not going to do anything about it I will'.

I can hear myself saying it now if someone I cared about was being mistreated in some way?

Depending on how aggressive or upset you are when you make a statement like that you can easily see how a Police Officer would recommend revoking an FAC.

Thanks for the replies, l've not given details of what has happened and won't, but there is another issue ongoing, that I've not mentioned and is a lot more serious, I've spoken to the Firearms guy from the NGO and their solicitor, everything I've done has been correct and I've put no obstacles in the way, so no one can say I'm not being helpful.
To be honest, I don't feel my heart is in it anymore and I've taken blow after blow, but kept my head held high through it all, at this moment in time, l feel like calling it a day and going back to one of my other loves, motorcycling. I lost my right leg below the knee in a crash in March 1986, now I have an itch to scratch, it feels like l have unfinished business and l intend to see it through. I've taken the CBT and theory, now just looking for a naked bike that l can put forward controls on and fit a thumb operated rear brake so l can take my test on.

As a wee aside, my young cousin, a few weeks ago....had a nasty bike accident with an artic lorry ( her fault) while over from the US on holiday, she was heading down to mine from Inverness, and had an accident on the A82 near Urquart Castle...upshot was the amputation of her right leg below the knee.....she was medi vacced home to NY about a week ago..and she is coming back in the spring to continue her bike tour of Scotland...

Take care and good luck with the sales if you do decide to go ahead with them.....

Interesting. My daughter (just turned 14) had her FEO visit a couple of days ago, for her FAC application, and one of the questions they asked her related to bullying at school. Never gave it much thought at the time, but I can now see that they were probing deep...

I never thought i'd say this or say anything to aid BASC but Peter is a stand up guy if any one can help its him .tell him all and don't leave anything out if your in the right I feel he is your man .
sell now't for now let him view your case First let him tell you if there is a chance to regain your cert .
hope it comes right for you .
edit, Sorry say no more on an open screen as it were , just get it sorted first .then please tell us what the outcome is .

and what next?? - surrender your kitchen knives, garden tools and your divers license so you dont have access to hire one of those large trucks... absolutely ridiculous, as with the other comments, contact your legal team through your NRA, BASC or sporting association. I would not take this nonsense at all. Best of luck

i honestly didnt think they could make you give up your guns because of bullying,yes if you got hold of one of the bullies and brayed the **** out of them(which is quite possibly what they need) ,but things seem to be going from bad to worse,great britain i think not

give yourself a bit of time,good luck whatever you decide

It's times like this I wish I was a barrister, I'd take this for nothing just so justice was done

I think so many in our community are of like mind, if you have stated all the facts & left now't out, I would be prepared to put my little fifty quid into a crowd funding attempt.
