This is the guide to obtaining your Firearm Certificate. This is sometimes called a FAC or an FAC. In this video you will be shown through the UK Firearms Certificate Application Guide. To my knowledge it is the only video on youtube, with the exception of the Sercout channel (where he briefly talks about it), that guides a newcomer to attaining a firearms license in the UK. FAC or Firearms Certificate covers all firearms under Section 1. Anything under Section 5 is prohibited (unless the Home Office approves you which is near-impossible). Section 2 is Shotgun Certificate (SGC), more on this later. This video tells you how to do it! Despite what the UK government and all of the PC brigade would like you to think, UK citizens can still own rifles and shotguns, you can even still own a hand gun on an FAC S1 - so long as the overall length is 24ins or more. To do this you would need to become a member of a shooting club, you need to be a full member, usually for at least six months before you can apply for a section one fire-arms certificate, the police will check that you have been a member of that club. The application is a form that you get from the police station, you need to fill it out as specified and then you need to get two character references, and several signed photos. Land details for where you want to shoot is also required (normally a gun club is used instead of this, unless it's for vermin control, deer stalking etc). You also need to list all of the fire-arms that you wish to own and the amount of ammo that you want to store, so you have to think about what you are likely to want/afford in the next five years (before you need to re-new your licence); if you don’t buy the guns on your list the next time you need to re-new the police may remove them from your ticket – if you want to buy something not on your list you have to have what’s called a ‘variation’ – and this cost more money. You also need to buy and install a Police/Home Office approved gun safe in your home before you are approved by the police (so that they can check it as part of your application - you still may not be approved even if you have gone to the expense of getting one installed...). Guidelines for a gun cabinet ideally include: Behind a locked door in a room and concealed from prying eyes. So upstairs is best. Hidden within the room as well ought to score points too. You must also visit and shoot at your chosen club on a regular basis. Firearms you can own on a FAC: .22 rim fire rifle. Semi-auto or bolt-action. You can even have box mag’s. These can have a barrel length as low as 12 inches long, but the overall length of the firearm must be at least 24 inches long. Bolt action Rifles (ANY Calibre*), any magazine capacity.
