AFAIK, one must store his guns in a security cabinet when they are not in use. The police will come to check on your storage arrangements before they will grant your Firearms Certificate. Also the police will want to know where you intend to use the guns and what you intend to shoot with each of them.
Now is time of year for Pheasant shooting. These birds are bred for sport. Farmers let out their land to people with licensed guns. This is part of what the countryside is all about.
