I have heard of, and met, a good handful of people who have kept shotguns in their unit armouries whilst living in, with no dramas. However, I want to keep my stalking rifle at work (its currently at my parents at the other end of the country.) so I can use it more easily. I've asked around and everyone seems happy with the procedure for the gun itself...photocopy of FAC etc etc. However, no one can give me a sensible suggestion regarding secure ammunition storage. Does anyone have any experience of this? So far, the proffered solutions have been to either tell the FEO that my rifle and ammo are being secured on MOD premises, keep the ammo under my bed and hope he never checks...or my favoured option which is to install a small safe in my room in the mess. (This should fly with the mess manager as I can leave the keys for the next occupant of my room) Does anyone know what chapter and verse actually is on this, or where I should start looking to find it?
