    Q235: What are the requirements for the security/storage of my firearm/shotgun?

    The firearms and ammunition to which the certificate relates must at all times be stored securely so as to prevent, so far as is reasonably practicable, access to the firearms or ammunition by an unauthorised person. Guidance on the security requirements can be obtained from your local firearms licensing department.

    Please note that all calls to police involving firearms are treated as if it is a genuine firearm so be aware that if you do wave an imitation firearm around you could find yourself surrounded by firearms officers pointing real weapons at you.
