Firearm and Shotgun certificate renewals and change of address - a reminder to members

We have had reports from the police of cases where FAC and SGC holders have lapsed into unlawful possession, either through forgetting to renew, 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 even tracing them. This is unhelpful to the shooting community as a whole, as well as your Society. The Police's time is better spent dealing with grants, renewals and variations.
 
Please ensure you do not fall into this situation! If you have questions or concerns we are here to help.
