No 79 January 2016

Correction

Please note that in the previous issue of Very Light the date for the January meeting which is a talk by Stuart Duff from the Police Historical Society on the Victorian Colonial Police was given as the 26th. This, as has been noted by some observant Guild members, is actually a Tuesday whereas the correct date is the 25th which is a Monday as usual. The Secretary apologizes for any confusion that his typo caused.

Display Security

A gentle reminder to members who present displays that all registerable pistols and longarms held on the various licences are required to be secured while on display even in a locked display case.

A plastic cable tie or trigger lock which locks the action is sufficient if they are displayed in a locked case, while if the arms are displayed on the table a cable tie or trigger lock and security cable holding them to the table are required. The Guild has a supply of the security cables and their locks which are available on request. Plastic cable ties can be purchased cheaply at most hardware stores.
