Not all convictions will show on a normal CRB check.

 

Your best bet is to make a subject access request to the police's Freedom of Information department, think it costs £10. That should list all of them.

Will they try and catch you out on questions like,

 

If you was walking on your land and you come to some woods would you shoot it to them, i would say no has you don't know if anyone is in there

 

And what if you are walking with a friend and you come up to a farm fence how would you get over it.

 

would they ask anything like this questions ??

 

All so would it be best to say your are using it for Clay Shooting and not Vermin Control??

I highly doubt it.

 

Use your common sense and you'll be fine, it's not an interrogation, more of an informal chat about your security, any experience you may have with firearms and your reasons for applying. Not that you need a reason at all with a Shotgun Certificate.

I dont actually have any solid walls in my bedroom (plasterboard) and was wondering if its possible to bolt a gunsafe into the floor? And would the inspecting officer be OK with this?

A common problem in new houses. Providing it is a solid fixing I would think it would be ok but suggest you talk to your FEO first when they ring to make the appointment.

Hi ss will a drink drive conviction go against me?it was 4 year ago thank you

 

It certainly won't go in your favour but if that is your only conviction then I wouldn't worry too much, having a conviction is not an outright ban,

 

You'll probably get a warning letter with your certificate stating that any continuance of that behaviour will lead to revocation.
