Paul we could all have an accident while out stalking or suffer ill health. That i am sure would not be any ones fault and if your mate took the gun to the nearest afe place eg cop shop of RFD etc .I see no ramifications at all.

None as long as your mates contacted the police immediately and explained the situation. The police would normally attend and ensure that any firearms are taken into safe keeping which could actually be simply entrusted to your mate in the first instance. I know this because it happened to me a good many years ago when my friend dropped dead when we were out stalking in the west country.

If you're a member of BASC I'd give their legal dept a holler as they should have a better handle on the legalities...

I totally agree with 6pointer, but The Law is a fickle b*gger, and although we can see the common sense response, The Law might see it differently.

The best alternative though is not to worry about it, as your guns will be the least of your worries if (Heaven forbid) you're in the back of an ambulance!!!

Yes a mile from the nearest house, no mobile phones nearest call box a mile and a half away, wasn’t a good day for any of us. I have to say that both the local police (Wiltshire) and our local force were very good and dealt with it in a very sensible and sympathetic way. Obviously they were concerned that my friend’s rifle and the ammunition that he had on him at the time were secured but after establishing who I was and that I had a FAC they handed them over to me for safe keeping and arranged for a temporary permit to be issued the following morning. It was one time that I was grateful that I had my FAC with me.

Common sense should/would prevail, a firearms cert holder is probably better than any old P.C. attending, but you don't always get that approach.
