Looking to find out more about UK gun laws or firearm and shotgun certificates? Whether you’re a firearm owner, firearm dealer, shooting club member or planning to travel with firearms, you'll find advice here on using and storing firearms, shotguns and explosives, as well as how to apply for a range of certificates, permits and licences.
GP forms: You now need to send a completed GP form with all grant and renewal applications, but we're aware that GPs are prioritising Covid-19 boosters and vaccinations over everything else at the moment and that could delay getting a form from them.
Grant applications: If you do not have a completed GP form already we recommend waiting until February before you apply.
Renewals: If you can wait until the end of the booster campaign to make your application we recommend that you do, if you can’t or you’re having difficulty getting a completed form from your GP, contact us.
