shotgun licence

    I had a limited shotgun licence for nearly 20 years & gave it up around 2008. I would like to get into shooting again & I've spoken to our local club secretary & no problems there.

    I've tried to make contact with our local Garda station but it's always closed, I've rang & left my number but they haven't replied. I wanted to ask if it was necessary to complete a course as I had a licence previously & did I need to buy a gun cabinet or was it okay to break it & have a trigger lock.

    There was a leaflet in the station window with the name of a guy who ran courses locally, but when I came home & checked on the NARGC site for Cork his name isn't on it.

    I suppose my option is to just do a course & buy a second hand cabinet & fill in the form & post it through their door. When I spoke our secretary he suggested maybe trying another station but it comes under another district to my local.

    Any suggestions please gents ?
