Welcome to the web pages for the Bedfordshire & Hertfordshire Firearms Licensing Unit.


We are currently asking existing licence holders for their views on applying for licences online.  Could you spare a few minutes to answer a short questionnaire?  Click here to complete the Firearms Licensing Survey.
