    There are a couple of threads detailing the 350 issue.

    It's only fair that the shop charges a storage fee seeing as your gun will be taking up space in their safe. And it is certainly very likely that they will charge you.

    Yes most likely the shop owner would, for me it was a case of pay storage and be able to shoot the pistol or don’t pay storage and not be able to shoot the pistol.

    It seems to be the norm from the long competency thread. My GF’s competency is also almost on 90 days.

    Yeah, when I went to hand in the apps for the AR15 and the pistol neither of them was on the dealers license yet. The AR was still reflecting on Diplopoints license and the pistol on suburban guns. The DFO told me go and get 350b’s for them and then they can submit

    Also, I truly don't see any reason why ones neighbours need to give permission (by virtue of being a reference). It's really none of their business - regardless of their own personal inclination towards firearms.

    Things might be fine now, but let your dog poop on their lawn and suddenly the cops are at your door 'cos you pointed your gun at your neighbour'. Yes, it's taken to the extreme but weirder things happen on a daily basis. This is not something I would suggest you go along with.
    I fully agree with you. No one needs to know what I want to do. But how does one argue with the dfo? Coz its much easier for him to just write "not recommended" if you start arguing?

    First option would be to politely decline. Not everyone knows their neighbours these days...

    IF the DFO does by some chance take it personally and provide a bad recommendation then you could get GOSA/Martin Hood or the like involved.

    That does sound like good advice that I didnt think of.
