    other methods of gun security

    If your landlord will not let you bolt the cabinet or securicord or gun clamp to the wall, would he let you secure it to the floor on its back. Good coach bolts to a wooden floor or expanding bolts through a concrete floor should suffice. Lift up a piece of carpet in a convenient place, out of sight and job done, and when you move, no holes in the wall to fill in.

    Chances of getting a shotgun certificate.

    You will either be granted or not granted a certificate. There are no restrictions, unlike a firearm certificate, placed on a shotgun certificate. There are only 4 standard conditions, sign it, keep the gun secure, notify if the gun gets lost or stolen, and notify a change of address. Like the others have said put your application in and wait for the interview with the FEO. He should have an honest discussion with you but he will not be able to tell you whether you will be successful, but from what you have said I would think you stand a better than average chance of it being granted. Good luck.

    SGC taking forever

    Most forces work around a 60 day time frame, that is from the time they receive your application to the time the certificate is sent to you. You do not say when your FEO visited you, but I would expect your certificate to arrive within about three weeks of his visit. If there had been any problems, this would have been discussed at the visit. Good luck.

    Nobel 60 powder reloading data

    Thanks for your help F C. One more thing please. Can I use the old Ely plaswads (Mk 3 and Mk 4) with this load? I aslo have a couple of tins of Surefire primers but not sure if they can be used in a modern case. Many years ago I used to use them in the old Ely Grand Prix case but not sure if they can be used in a modern case. Your advice would be much appreciated.
