Does anyone know the rules on carrying weapons in civi cars, i have been asked to take someone to chillwell and take 4 weapons in a hire car hired by the TA, i am not happy about but the TA being the TA say thats it ok.
Been out a while but that used to be the case
The car will be on strength as 'a military vehicle'
You will be covered by the same rules and insurance etc as if you were using a military vehicle
If there's two of you going then you can be classed as driver and escort
Shouldn't be a problem unless the car gets nicked whilst you are in Macca D's
As the Boy says a hire car therefore counts as white fleet so long as you have a workticket for it.....i think, think of it as the same as the minibuses we hire for RTC w/es and take to ranges/ trg area
If it's hired then its an army vehicle - end of. That said, I can't imagine what the problem would be if it was your own car. Serving personnel on duty are exempt from the various firearms acts wherever they are or whatever they are doing.
Got told the other day that as long as the weapons are signed to personnel in the vehicle & there is a work ticket it is OK, but if it's just you & another escort then you need a form filled in - but I can't remember what form it was.
I think you'll find JSP 440 is the relevant documentation to refer to in this case. You can't transport weapons on your own, can't transport weapons and ammo in the same vehicle and all parties in the vehicle need to have the relevant vetting.
