Applying for a shotgun licence is no more difficult than applying for a passport. The main exception being, that if it's a 'first time'
application, a Police representative will visit you to check out your storage facilities (gun cabinet etc.) As for needing a reason for possessing a
shotgun, It's usually sufficient to state that you wish to take part in shooting sports. I get to have one as I'm a landowner, (for use against
vermin etc. Oh - and Ramblers who leave gates open!).
Once you've been cleared by the authorities and paid your £50, you can own as many guns as you need, (although I suspect if you amass too many, they
may take a dim view of it!)
