  1. Flying with Rifle / Ammo

    Thanks a lot for the info just what l needed to know. So if l had my ammo in an ammo box inside my backpack that would be ok or should l put some kind of lock on that as well? thanks again Callum
  2. Hi Guys, I'm flying this Thursday from the Isle of Lewis to go deer stalking on the mainland and was inquiring if anybody on here has any experience on what regulations l should follow when flying with a rifle and carrying ammunition? I have a lockable solid gun case for the journey and my local security bods said all l would have to do would be to declare my rifle + ammo and show them my license. On the ammo front l have no idea how it should be carried and must add that l think it would be best in an ammo belt type of thing kept with the gun in the case as it is safest in there but again l don't know if this would be legal. I could also keep my ammo in an ammo box in my backpack but as some baggage handlers can be quite rough I'm worried that any hard impact could set of the bullets. I would also like to take my own knife for the trip but yet again am unsure of the legalities and before anyone points out why not buy ammo etc on the mainland l will not get the chance as l will be landing in Glasgow and leaving it again in around 15 minutes and country bound in a train so what experience / tips do you guys have? many thanks Callum

  5. FAC Shotgun

    thanks for the replies guys, So were would l stand on buying them Paulus considering it does not state anything on shotgun shells on my firearm certificate in the ammunition section? cheers Callum
  6. FAC Shotgun

    Hi guys its been a while, I went for a variation last month for a semi auto fac shotgun and my cert came back today. I'm unsure if my certificate came back correct though as it states under the Firearms authorised to be purchased or acquired 12 BORE SHOTGUN but under the ammo section it does not mention anything about shotgun cartridges. Should it mention anything as l am not sure whether this is an error or not on my local firearms departments part or that this is the norm for a FAC shotgun? cheers Callum
