Hi Keith

I presently have a 7 rifle Bratton Sound - link here

It just about has the depth for field target scoped rifles. I'd say that it might be a struggle for 4 FT rifles because they are so wide. Also, if you have a deep hamster then they'll probably need to go in at an angle.

Hope this helps

Do you have a box room?, if you do?, convert it to a rifle room, cause chances are, your collection will only get bigger.

Default Cabinet or not

Hey there guys I was just wondering if it is compulsory to have a cabinet for your rifles or am I allowed to keep my rifle padlocked in my hard case?

There's no rules on how an air rifle should be stored...

But the Crime & Security Act 2010 (S.46) made it an offence for a person in possession of an air weapon to fail to take reasonable precautions to prevent any person under the age of eighteen from having the weapon. This legislation essentially relates to the storage of air guns and the requirement of owners to prevent unauthorised access by children. Failure to do so renders owners liable for a fine of up to 1,000. It doesn't say what the reasonable precautions are but reasonable should give you some guidance.

Thought i better add this before the PC brigade start, they are all locked in separate cases thus taking up a lot of room,

Default Where there is blame there is a claim...

It seems the criminal law on firearms is complex with many Acts overlapping and subject to fresh interpretation by the courts on a case by case basis.

Ownership of a firearm is an onerous responsibility.

I think it is advisable to try to familiarise yourself as much as possible with the relevant criminal law but also be aware that civil law could apply in addition to criminal law.

The police have an extremely robust response to firearms incidents and are likely to prosecute if they long as they don't shoot you dead first...

The civil lawyers are hungry for no win no fee cases so there could be a double whammy..

The law on negligence is also very comprehensive and subject to review on a case by case basis. There are lots of criminal offences that you could commit that could result in you having a free holiday at Her Majesty's expense.

Also, there are a myriad of circumstances that could arise as a result of your ownership of a firearm that could land you in civil court facing a bill of many thousands of pounds.

Its advisable to have relevant insurance and to be aware of the wording of the contract. In the event of a claim or injury then the lawyers and insurers will be looking for your assets to pay the bill.....even if you are in pokey...

I believe sensible advice is to get familiar with the legislation, be aware that it is open to interpretation and be extremely careful in ALL circumstances that as a result of your firearm ownership that no person is injured or property damaged.

Belt and braces, you cannot be too careful....
