If anyone could help me that would be great. I'm towards the end of my vetting (only 3 weeks till I'm due to start training) and had a visit from firearms officers the other day. I shoot and collect air weapons, and one that I had imported from Germany had flagged up through customs. It was cleared and allowed into the UK as it was a legal gun of legal specs, however they came to give me the option of surrendering the gun to be destroyed. We had a chat and I decided I didn't need it and signed it over.
No crime was committed, I wasn't cautioned and the only reason I'm on record is because of a quick PNC check and my signature in the officers PNB. I was told this would most likely not affect or even come up in vetting, but does anyone have any advice? Should I make vetting aware? Will it affect my application? And could this delay my training?
Thanks in advance.
