Mark Heath, head in­struc­tor at West Lon­don Shoot­ing School, says: “In the night­mare sce­nario that your gun is stolen, you need to be able to demon­strate to the po­lice that you have acted rea­son­ably to en­sure the se­cu­rity of the gun in all the cir­cum­stances. I al­ways use a hard gun case when trav­el­ling, both for se­cu­rity and to pre­vent dam­age – es­pe­cially to the stock. In the car, I keep the fore-end sep­a­rate and se­cure the locked case with a se­cu­rity ca­ble, so it can’t be eas­ily re­moved if the car is bro­ken into. I also en­sure that it’s out of sight in the ve­hi­cle. When stay­ing overnight, first choice is se­cure gun stor­age if it’s avail­able. If not, I use the se­cu­rity ca­ble to se­cure the gun in its case in my room, and leave the fore-end in the car.”
