they just can mate. My friend had an argument with his missis, she'd had 3 bottles of wine, ended up neighbours coming round, continued in the street. police turned up. She told the coppers he'd hit her, even though there was no evidence, he was sober and she was ruined, and not a mark on her, they locked him up for 'her safety' even the copper said it was ridiculous but they couldn't leave him there. Then while the investigation was ongoing, emptied his gun cabinet. Shite but thats just the way they deal with things.

Well you have to look at facts, not feelings when it comes to guns. If those facts show an unstable family life which in the past has resulted in so many domestic murders, would you consider saying "Yes, he's perfectly fine" to own or become skilled with firearms.

 

Ultimately, the OP hasn't got a bad history, just happens to be that his current state of affairs isn't ideal for owning firearms, nothing to say when things calm down he can't pursue his hobby again.

A few years ago a mate told his live in Girlfriend he had had enough of her and told her to go, she got a bit shitty with him and left a few Months later the Police raided his home emptied his gun safe and took all his guns, when he asked what the hell was going on they told him there had been a complaint from his ex that if she went out with anyone else he would kill her.He had not had any contact with her what so ever but he had moved on and had another girlfriend, it was a case of his exes green eyed monster and telling the police lies, he had to jump through all sorts of hoops to get his guns back , i think it took him 4 months, and i know of a similar case with the same out come.So you see it only takes a wrong word in the right place for any one of us to lose our guns.

If they knew he was going through a divorce I bet they'd use that against him. There are enough examples of people having their guns taken away from them in that situation even though they have no legal right to do so.

I hadnt long split from a seven yr relationship

what would be better sacs or basc

 

Just a word of warning on this, the BASC generally won't help with any issue that started BEFORE the membership did. Don't know about SACS but I imagine thats the same.

 

That said, SACS is well worth joining if you get this sorted.

 

Just wondering, have the police ever had a call out to a domestic between you and your ex even if no-one was charged?

 

True! But even that's now being manipulated. I joined BASC I made a shot gun application and got denied. They said we cant help you as this happened before I joined. Turns out they was incorrect as I joined first. They then said I knew I would be denied that's why I joined. and his comparison was "nobody would let a motorist claim after he has crashed" Is that not why you get insurance, in case you crash?
