Am I all good for security?

    Salutations

    I'm getting my third firearm, a pistol. I already have a shotgun and a 22lr rifle. Currently, I have a safe fixed to a wall which is where I store the guns. Am I right in thinking that this is all I need for the addition of the pistol for storage?

    its up to the super or cpo cant remember which he/she can request that you have extra security like an additional safe for the ammo maybe even a monitored alarm

    you might be fine though its like a lottery but there is a minimum you need

    His pistol won't be a restricted firearm.

    It's upto your super, anyone else is just guessing really.

    You meet the minimum requirements but your super can insist on more if he wants.

    As RS98 rightly said you have met the minimum requirements for three unrestricted firearms. This allows you to apply and say you have met the requirements. Anything needed/wanted after that will be up to your Super.

    Nice one boyz. Hopefully they see sense and realise a pea shooter shouldn't complicate things

    Congrats John.
    Was your existing safe sufficient?
    Any notable conditions?
    How many rounds you apply for/get?
    Did you get a visit from FO?

    Cheers

    Yes my safe was fine; it's anchored to a supporting wall and can hold 3 firearms (this new one being my third).

    No notable conditions at all.
