1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    Awaiting my interview tuesday and the cabinet is all secured. However I have been looking and have received different opinions on storing cartridges. I purchased a cabinet with a top lock box thinking that I could store cartridges in there to keep everything safe. Ive since read that it has to be stored seperately and also read that thats only a guideline. Can I legally store them in there? Should I tell the officer I plan to store them in there or will that stop the cert being granted? Also if I go for FAC is that a lot stricter and you have no chance of storing them in the same cabinet? Bit of advise please as I don't really want a seperate safe when ive paid an extra £50 or something for the top lockbox and I don't have room for a safe the gun cabinet takes up enough ha.

    If the lock box has a separate key I'm pretty sure you can store ammunition in there as it is safe and kept from the guns using a different key (or does it use the same key? in which case I'm not sure) I think I've seen somewhere that people use the lock box to store rifle bolts and ammunition so storing cartridges in there should be fine as they're separate from the guns and locked securely (Not that cartridges have to be) Don't rely on my advice though as other people on here know more than me but I'm pretty sure that's right. Also how long did it take you to get your interview from posting your application? I posted mine this week and am now just playing the waiting game :)

    Not really practical as you'll probably be holding more than will fit in there. Store them in the loft or in a cupboard in another room that isn't open to visitors and you'll be sound.

    3 weeks for my interview.

    As for the space yes it wont hold all the shells but holding a few will help the rest ill have to find somewhere to put them like you say probably the loft or something out the way I suppose.

    I have a wooden cupboard i have put lots of shelves in. One type of cartridge to a shelf. (keeps them tidy and stops them getting mixed up) I have a padlock on mine.
    Something like the above would look good if the Feo were to ask but there is no need.
    Keep your old boxes when you fill your cartridge bag, you can then empty the bag back out in to the boxes and put another type of cartridge in the bag. Cheers Andy
