New Firearms and Shotgun forms

NEW Firearm and Shotgun forms

For years we’d been struggling with complex and out-dated firearm and shotgun certificate application forms, and for years we’d been trying to get them reformed.

The Home Office has published the revised (and revised again!) set which came into use on 20th May 2014.

Instead of the four forms we used to have for coterminous renewal, there will be just ONE – see

There is also a smaller, simpler single form for variations of firearm certificates, no need for someone of “stature” in the community to countersign your application, only four photos, no extra referee forms etc etc.
