Well, after sometime I have finally got somewhere I can now apply for my fac.
It's all written and due to go in the post tomorrow. New fee's though - however not to bothered as here in merseyside we have a gooden, in the form of Parker!! No BSing him though, knows his stuff.
The new forms are a bit strange with regards to countersignator, they don't have to be signed nor does a picture have to be indorsed by them, which I found a bit strange.
I am applying for, 22lr, 17hmr and 22hornet.
The 22lr - for vermin excluding foxes and it's a good starter rifle and have shot one and very much enjoyed shooting it.
The HMR for vermin & short range fox, just to give the extra legs on vermin such as bunnies and crows.
The hornet for vermin and fox, but mainly so I have a dedicated fox cal, although I understand all are capable, I want a rifle for the foxes that are more than 70/80 yards, as its not fair or justifiable to injure a fox at 150 yards with a HMR and then for it to run off and die slowly and painfully. After all we want to project our sport as humane as possible. Also the hornet for long range crows,jack daws etc.
Also mods for all 3 calibres too.
Hopefully I won't be waiting to long, however I expect to wait around 4/5 months I would say was reasonable for first grant.
