Firearm and Shotgun certificate renewals and change of address

A reminder to members. We have had reported from the police cases where FAC and SGC holders have lapsed into unlawful possession, typically, either through forgetfulness regarding renewal, or through moving house and forgetting to advise the police. Not only does this place the certificate holder in illegal possession of firearms, but ties up police time chasing up and also tracing them, which is time better spent dealing with grants, renewals and variations, and is unhelpful to the shooting community as a whole, as well as your Association.

Please ensure you do not fall into this situation! If you have questions or concerns we are here to help.

Thank you for your comprehension
