Firearms Licence - Good Reason
An applicant for a firearm certificate needs to demonstrate "good reason" for the weapons requested. In the case of target shooting, "good reason" can only be satisfied by the applicant being a full and active member of a Home Office approved club (probationary membership is not acceptable), and the club must be approved for the use of the firearms requested in the application.
Please complete the Form for Good Reason if you are applying for a Firearms Certificate.
Once completed, please forward your application direct to the following address:
Firearms & Explosives Licensing Unit
P.O. Box 77
