Sporting Gun - - SHOOTING ANSWERS -

QI was won­der­ing if it is okay to keep a shot­gun in my mum’s house. I orig­i­nally only had one gun that I kept at home us­ing a sim­ple trig­ger lock that the con­stab­u­lary were happy with. I de­cided to buy a sec­ond gun so up­graded my se­cu­rity to a cab­i­net. I live in Hamp­shire and my mum owns a farm in Devon where I shoot. But, is it okay to keep my sec­ond gun at her home us­ing the trig­ger lock to keep it se­cure and keep­ing the key at my home? I con­sider it safer to keep the gun at her home rather than trans­port­ing it each time in the boot of my car.

David says: You need to raise the mat­ter with your li­cens­ing depart­ment. Some­how I don’t think they’d be happy with such an ar­range­ment.

Per­son­ally I wouldn’t be too wor­ried about trans­port­ing your gun to and from Devon pro­vided you take the stan­dard pre­cau­tions when the gun is in the car. An­other pos­si­bil­ity would be for your Mum to get a shot­gun cer­tifi­cate and for both of your guns to be on both cer­tifi­cates.

Trans­port­ing your gun shouldn’t be a prob­lem pro­vid­ing you take the stan­dard pre­cau­tions
