Rules On Gun Buying and Licencing in the UK

To buy a shotgun in Britain you need to hold a Shotgun Certificate, and to buy a rifle you need to hold a Fire Arm Certificate. You can ask for forms for these from your local Police Station. As most things currently are accessible via the Internet, below is the link to Essex Police where you can find information about obtaining a gun licence or renewing an existing one in addition to other relevant information.

Ask also to speak to your local Police firearms Liaison Officer, who will tell you what you need to fill those forms out to his or her satisfaction. They may also want to see a 'good reason' for you wanting a gun, such as membership of Benfleet Pistol & Rifle Club or for pest control. They usually want to see that you will keep your gun or guns in a secure place, such as a steel gun cabinet bolted to a wall. You have to store ammunition separately.
