David Herbert, prosecuting, told Derby Crown Court that Forrest-Clarke was "willingly involved in the gun scene in Derby".
Mr Herbert said a photograph of young men posing with firearms in Forrest-Clarke's bedroom had been found on someone else's mobile.
Mr Herbert said: "He was involved with a number of people, some of those people have also been arrested and dealt with for gun crime or are due to be dealt with early next year."
Forrest-Clarke pleaded guilty to possessing a prohibited firearm, two charges of possessing ammunition without a firearms certificate, possessing prohibited ammunition and possessing cannabis with intent to supply.
Derbyshire Constabulary Assistant Chief Constable Peter Goodman said: "In light of the events of this week in which Kadeem Blackwood was shot dead I think it is important to demonstrate to the communities of Derby that people are being brought to justice for gun crime.
"Guns are lethal weapons not toys or status symbols and Kadeem's untimely death is testament to that.
