A reader wonders what he should do whilst his gun is being repaired
A: There is no need to inform the police because the return of a gun for work is not a transfer in law. There is no need for the record to be changed because you are still in legal possession of the gun. However, I would ask the RFD for a receipt so that you can account for it, just in case. An email acknowledging that the RFD has the gun for repair, giving its full description — bore, make model type and serial number — is enough for you to show that the gun is temporarily away from you. Keep a copy of the courier’s receipt and tracking number as well.
